From Imitation of Christ, in file "Imitation of Christ", page 211
By Thomas a Kempis

5. Give me, O Lord, heavenly wisdom, that I may learn above all things to seek thee, and to find thee; above all things to relish thee, and to love thee, and to understand all other thhigs, as they are, according to the order of thy wisdom.

Grant that I may prudently decline him that flatters me, and patiently bear with him that contradicts me.

For this is great wisdom, not to be moved with every wind of words, nor to give ear to the wicked flattering Siren; for thus shall we go on securely in the way we have begun.
