SAINT FRANCIS DE SALES
French bishop and writer
(1567 - 1622)

A judicious silence is always better than truth spoken without charity.
      - [Silence]

Better make penitents by gentleness than hypocrites by severity.
      - [Gentleness]

If you would fall into any extreme, let it be on the side of gentleness. The human mind is so constructed that it resists rigor, and yields to softness.
      - [Gentleness]

It is better to remain silent than to speak the truth ill-humoredly, and spoil an excellent dish by covering it with bad sauce.
      - [Silence]

We must never undervalue any person. The workman loves not that his work should be despised in his presence. Now God is present everywhere, and every person is His work.
      - [Appreciation]

Do not be troubled by St. Bernard's saying that "Hell is full of good intentions and wills."
      - Letter to Madame de Chantal--Letter XII
        [Hell]

A good discourse is that from which nothing can be retrenched without cutting into the quick.
      - Letter upon Eloquence [Eloquence]
