The true knowledge of goodness

All people must act with toleration and sympathy for faults. The feelings of each person cause him to know the goodness of others. They must try to act with toleration and sympathy for faults.
This thing is the most important need of the heart, but few people question (doubt) the goodness they know.
I am not certain.
