“Everyone should be respected as an individual, but no one idolized.”
When you idolize say, Jesus, you are putting that person on a pedestal above you. Respect Jesus, Buddha, everyone, and realize, everything they are you can be and more. In fact they told us that themselves. That they are no better or greater than we are. They just realized their greatness that we all have. We have not yet.
That is why I love this quote from Albert Einstein. It reminds me that we are all great. And the more and more I remember this in my daily interactions with people, the easier life is.
