“You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him.” WHAT do you think that quote MEANS?

    It means people will kiss up to their boss, or someone in a position of power, but

    for someone who can do nothing for them, they just show their true personality.

    There is a similar quote that I like better: "A great man shows his greatness by the way he treats lesser men."

    Unfortunately there are many people who are so self-absorbed that they have no time for other people unless they can derive some benefit from dealing with them. A man who tries to help someone who needs help with no thought of anything other than just trying to help someone who needs help is a far better man.

    The same thought is expressed in the New Testament with the parable of the Good Samaritan.

    It means there are two kinds of men. ONE sees a man struggling to change his flat tire, and walks by without a second thought. Another man sees the same thing, and offers to help. The one offering to help, expecting no payment or other reward, is a better man.
