(From my book of Aphorisms- 'Thoughts To Make You Think' By Helen Leigh -  - Chapter One - Personal Development)

Next time your out, make a conscious effort to take a look at the people around you, and recognise that they each have lives, things to do, places to go and be, likes, dislikes, feelings...

...And when someone cuts you off on the road, and it pisses you off, and you get angry at that: 'Idiot' or that 'Some - 'Thing' that got in your way, just remember they still have lives and are still feeling beings, just like you..

It is not to say that you shouldn't correct someone who is doing wrong or could potentially hurt someone, but Objectifying anything, whether it be a person, or animal, is a kind of numbness that takes away love and appreciation from your life, it also gives you licence to hurt another for doing wrong to you, and to not acknowledge that they have feelings also... This is not the way an evolved person looks at another.. This is exactly how Wars are made, and how people can kill one another, how Animals are put in cramped cages and killed inhumanely..

Through objectifying there is no remorse or compassion, and without compassion there is no love, and only where Love is, is where Life is.
