  13. 13. Quotes from Dale Carnegie’s Book  When dealing with people, let us remember we are not dealing with creatures of logic.  "A great man shows his greatness," said Carlyle, "by the way he treats little men.“  Instead of condemning people, let's try to understand them. Let's try to figure out why they do what they do. That's a lot more profitable and intriguing than criticism; and it breeds sympathy, tolerance and kindness. "To know all is to forgive all.“  If you argue and rankle and contradict, you may achieve a victory sometimes; but it will be an empty victory because you will never get your opponent's good will.  Listen first. Give your opponents a chance to talk. Let them finish. Do not resist, defend or debate. This only raises barriers. Try to build bridges of understanding. Don't build higher barriers of misunderstanding.  Accept the mistake. Disarm the person and bring him to your side rather than defending your position
