*Avoid worshiping fools! Whether they are rich, talented, or seem charming, their inability to be competent humans will be obvious, and a good reason to shun them.
*Parting from someone you love is hard. Parting from someone you despise is a lot easier, but can be a challenge if you want or need to pretend you’ll miss them.
We can be knowledgeable with other men’s knowledge, but we can not be wise with other men’s wisdom.
Michel de Montaigne
