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.
[Oprah Winfrey said in one of the interview she was giving :]
"There’s a wonderful phrase by Maya Angelou, from a poem that she wrote called “To our grandmothers”, that she says:
“I come as one, but I stand as ten thousand.”
So when I walk into a room, particularly before I have something really challenging to do, or I’m going to be in a circumstance where I feel I’m going to be you know, up against some difficulties. I will literally sit, and I will call on the 10,000."
Note : the actual phrase in the poem is : "I go forth along, and stand as ten thousand."
