When you come into contact with another person, make a special effort to see their virtues.
Not only look for good points, but try to genuinely feel pleasure in discovering a new virtue in someone. A person who masters this trait lives in an entirely different world than someone who lacks it. Everyone he meets has positive elements that he notices, and hence he will show honor and respect to everyone.
(Alai Shur, vol. 1, p.119; Rabbi Pliskin's Gateway to Happiness, p. 139)
