  1. This reminds me of [*Meditations* 11.18](https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/The_Meditations_of_the_Emperor_Marcus_Antoninus/Book_11):

    > Ninthly, that gentleness is invincible, if it be genuine and not sneering or hypocritical. For what can the most insolent do to you, if you continue gentle to him, and, if opportunity allows, mildly admonish him and quietly show him a better way at the very moment when he attempts to do you injury: ‘No, my child; we came into the world for other ends. It is not I that am harmed, but you are harmed, my child.’ And point out with tact and on general grounds that this is so, that not even bees act like that nor the many creatures that are by nature gregarious. But you must not do it ironically or as if finding fault, but affectionately and not feeling the sting in your soul, nor as if you were lecturing him or desired some bystander to admire you, but even if others are present, just in the way you would address him if you were alone.

    Note that the initial remark alone was insufficient. It was only upon later conversation with someone he already trusted that he changed his mind and experienced some growth.

    [The whole investigation](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Winter_Soldier_Investigation) is worth learning more about, for those who aren’t too familiar with it.
