The more you know yourself,
the more patience you have for what you see in others.
The virtue of justice consists in moderation, as regulated by wisdom.
The art of being wise is the art of knowing what to overlook.
A quote that now holds personal meaning for me, as James suggests we choose not to respond to most negativity, either in our present or stored in the attic of the past.
For time is like a fashionable host
That slightly shakes his parting guest by the hand
And with his arms outstretch’d, as he would fly
Grasps in the comer: welcome ever smiles
And farewell goes out sighing.
Shakespeare, Troilus and Cressida
