Be not angry that you cannot make others as you wish them to be since you cannot make yourself as you wish to be.
All men commend patience although few are willing to practice it.
First keep peace with yourself then you can also bring peace to others.
He will easily be content and at peace whose conscience is pure.
Oh how great peace and quietness would he possess who should cut off all vain anxiety and place all his confidence in God.
An humble knowledge of thyself is a surer way to God than a deep search after learning.
But because many endeavor to get knowledge rather than to live well they are often deceived and reap little or no benefit from their labor.
