Do not seize Occasions to embarrass Yourself or Others.

Do not seize Occasions to embarrass Yourself or Others. There are some men stumbling-blocks of good manners either for themselves or for others: they are always on the point of some stupidity. Youmeet with them easily and part from them uneasily. A hundred annoyances a day is nothing to them. Their humour always strokes the wrong way since they contradict all and every. They put on the judgment cap wrong side foremost and thus condemn all. Yet the greatest test of others’ patience and prudence are just those who do no good and speak ill of all. There are many monsters in the wide realm of Indecorum.
