"She opens her mouth in wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue." -Proverbs 31:26

"Hasty action is the father of failure, and failure in turn begets severe penalties. But much good comes from restraint, and even if one may not think so at the moment, he will discover, in time, that it is so." -Herodotus' Histories

"Slander is a most terrible crime, one in which two people commit the injustice and a third is the victim of it. The one who slanders commits an injustice against the one who is not present, while the person who listens to him does wrong by believing him before learning if his claims are accurate. And the man who is absent from their talk is wronged, being slandered by the one and assumed to be bad by the other." -ibid

"Good sense is every bit as valuable as the willingness to heed someone's good advise." -ibid
