BE calm in arguing: for fierceness makes
Error a fault, and truth discourtesy.
Why should I feel another man’s mistakes
More than his sicknesses, or poverty?
In love I should; but anger is not love,
Nor wisdom neither; therefore gently move.
George Herbert

BUT since Goodness is exemplary in all, if others have not our Virtues, let us not be wanting in theirs, nor, scorning them for their Vices whereof we are free, be condemned by their Virtues wherein we are deficient. There is Dross, Alloy, and Embasement in all human Temper; and he flieth without Wings, who thinks to find Ophyr or pure Metal in any.
Sir Thomas Browne

HE that well and rightly considereth his own works will find little cause to judge hardly of another.
Thomas à Kempis
