WHAT, never speak one evil word,
Or rash, or idle, or unkind!
Oh, how shall I, most gracious Lord,
This mark of true perfection find?
Charles Wesley


THAT man is not himself blessed with a very happy temper who is unable to endure the cross-grained people with whom the world abounds. In the business of life copper coins as well as gold pieces are necessary.
La Bruyère


BUT to be able to live peaceably with hard, and perverse persons, or with the disorderly, or with such as go contrary to us, is a great grace, and a most commendable and manly thing.
Thomas à Kempis
