7th March


We must not fear false accusations against us; we ought, however, to draw some profit from them, both by knowing ourselves better, and by overcoming those vices which we come to know in the light of other people’s criticism. I would like those who have enemies to read for their consolation the book by the pagan author Plutarch, De capienda ex hostibus utilitate [On how to draw profit from enemies].
