Think well before entering into argument. At times the debater is no more than a hot-head.
Use courage sensibly. On many occasions the courageous person is simply imprudent.
Observe your methods of cultivating the truth. Many people who presume themselves truthful are actually channels of disturbance and discouragement.
Proceed with intelligence in all situations. Do not forget, however, that many intelligent men are mere scoundrels.
Be strong in daily the struggles. Nevertheless, do not forget that many whom you think to be brave are unconsciously committing suicide.
Esteem efficiency. But do not adopt rashness on the pretext of speed.
Do not confront dangers without the resources to annul them. What we set apart as bravery is often madness.
Always show valour in your attitudes. Remember, however, that valour does not consist in winning at any price, but in conquering your adversary by peaceful means.
Have courage, but be moderate in your undertakings. The distance from audacity to crime is but a few steps.
Cultivate affability and sweetness along your path. Nevertheless, do not waste your time in useless conversation.
