Please can anyone give me the correct phrasing and origins of the quote that goes something as follows...
'Always judge someone by how they treat people who can be of no use to them' :?
Thank-you.
'Carpe Diem'

The best index to a person's character is (a) how he treats people who can't do him any good, and (b) how he treats people who can't fight back.~Abigail Van Buren ("Dear Abby"), advice columnist

This is the final test of a gentleman: his respect for those who can be of no possible value to him.
~William Lyon Phelps

If you want to know what a man's like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals.~J. K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
