In Other's Company

1. When in the company of sensible men, we ought to be doubly cautious of talking too much, least we lose two good things - their good opinions and our own improvement; for what we say we know, but what they have to say we know not.

2. We not only want to be liked, we want to be well-liked. And some instinct tells us that we can more readily endear ourselves to our companions by telling them that we are in pain or trouble. When you are having trouble, it somehow makes them feel safer. (H. Golden)

3. Risk is essential. There is no growth or inspiration in staying within what is safe and comfortable. Once you find out what you do best, why not try something else. (A. Noble)
