We could not repeat these words often enough to every Christian – be indulgent.
Forget the little annoyances which people may have caused you, do not bear any resentment on account of the inconsiderate or unfavourable words which have been spoken about you. Excuse the awkward, and giddy acts of which you are the victim.
In a word, smile on everything.
Have an inexhaustible fund of kindness, patience and sweetness. Thus you will be in peace with your brethren; your love for them will undergo no change, and their affection for you will increase from day to day.
– Laverty & Sons, 1905
