In a plenary session , do not give your opinion if you are not invited to do so.
Sixthly, one should not give his opinion in a full assembly, unless urged to do so; and even then he should comply with modesty, and in a tone devoid of sharpness or too great emphasis. If his opinion be contradicted by the majority, he should be silent and not defend it obstinately. If, on the contrary, it is thought just, correct, and prudent, he should quietly advance proofs of the same, shunning, however, every appearance of obstinacy or prejudice; for, as says the venerable Caesar de Bus, " It is always far better to be the anvil than the hammer."
We do not love people so much for the good they have done us, as for the good we do them.
Love does not consist of gazing at each other, but in looking outward together in the same direction.
It is not a lack of love, but a lack of friendship that makes unhappy marriages.
