"It is no great matter to associate with the good and
gentle; for this is a naturally pleasing to all, and everyone
willingly enjoyeth peace, and loveth those best that agree
with him. But to be able to live peaceably with hard and
perverse persons, or with the disorderly, or with such as go
contrary to us, is a great grace,
and a most commendable thing."
Thomas a' Kempis
