T.H. Thompson and John Watson use the quote, but it's origination comes from a man known as Philo of Alexandria, a Jewish philosopher who was born in Alexandria, Egypt and lived 20 BC to 50 AD (also known as Philo Judeaus).

Other sources say...

This is often misattributed to Plato and Philo, but is far more recent than that. Maybe there was something similar. For example:

Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle. - John Watson (aka Ian MacLaren)"Be kinder than necessary because everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle" ― J.M. Barrie
