The wise man is he who understands himself well enough...

From the December 1910 issue of The Christian Science Journal


The wise man is he who understands himself well enough to make due allowance for unsane moods and variations, never concluding that a thing is thus or thus because just now it bears that look; waiting often to see what a sleep, or a walk, or a cool revision, or perhaps a considerable turn of repentance will do. He does not slash upon a subject or a man from the point of a just now rising temper.
