  • and in the XXI century they continue to be derelicts of society for whom separate institutes are allocated,

  • Today, for the first time for all history of mankind, people with physical and intellectual defects try to take a worthy place in society.

  • It is not necessary to see in me the patient. I am the ordinary inhabitant of the big city.
  • Treat me, as to the neighbour. Remember that anybody from us cannot be up to the end independent and completely self-sufficient.
  • Do not try to correct my behaviour.
  • Be patient on the relation to me and listen more. That can be regarded by you as the wrong behaviour, can be my attempt to adjust communication with the outside world, – in such a way which turns out only at me.

  • Do not try to become my friend. Who knows, can, I deserve the bigger.
  • Try to recognise me. We can become friends.
  • Do not help me. Even if it brings you content.
  • Ask better, whether your help is necessary to me. Give the chance to me to describe the best way by means of which you can help me.
  • It is not necessary to admire me. The desire to lead full life is not the basis for admiration.
  • Respect me. The respect means equality.
  • It is not necessary to say to me what to do, correct me endlessly and to direct me.
