A man is most accurately judged by how he treats those who are not in a position either to retaliate or to reciprocate.

Paul Eldridge (1888-1982) American educator, novelist, poet
Maxims for a Modern Man, #1198 (1965)

An earlier version of this quote was said by Eldridge in  "Lanterns in the Night," Maxim 41, in The Jewish Forum (Aug 1948): "A man’s character is most evident by how he treats those who are not in a position either to retaliate or reciprocate." See here for more information. See also Forbes.
