Lawrence of Arabia

I am writing something on Lawrence of Arabia, and came across one of his directives from his famed "27 Articles" piece from World War I. It seems this quote pertains not only to war but to our interpersonal relationships as well.
 
“Do not try to do too much with your own hands. Better the Arabs do it tolerably than that you do it perfectly. It is their war, and you are here to help them, not to win it for them.”
