Aprudent man foresees evil and hides himself;

The simple pass on and are punished.

---Proverbs 27:12

Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anrchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction,while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.

Surely some revelation is at hand;
Surely the Second Coming is at hand.

-----William Butler Yeates, ""The Second Coming""(1865-1939)

Do not be surprised that you fall every day; do not give up, but
stand your ground courageously. And assuredly, the angel who
guards you will honour your patience.

St. John of the Ladder (6th century...525)

A man may seem to be silent, but if his heart is condemning
others, he is babbling ceaselessly. But there may be another who
talks from morning till night and yet he is truly silent, that is,
he says nothing that is not profitable.

Abba Pimen (12th century)
