*Never rush in eager to cheer when someone has followed your advice and things worked well. Remember that sometimes they will follow your advice to utter ruin.
*You are expected to resist the darkness, not use it for cover to hide some wicked undertaking.
As it is the characteristic of of great wits to say much in few words, so it is of small wits to talk much and say little.
La Rochefoucauld 1613-1680
