Thomas à Kempis  ( 1380 – 1471)

” It is good for us to suffer contradictions sometimes,  and to allow people to think ill and slightingly of us, even when we do and mean well. Why do such a trifles go to your heart, but because you are yet carnal and regard men more than you should. Whether men put a good  or bad construction on what you do, you are still what you are.”
