On being Prudent...

"It is not good to be taken in by every word or impulse that comes our way, but consider the thing prudently and thoughtfully in order not to offend God.  Because we are frail we are always ready to believe the worst of people.  Those who seek perfection realize that human nature is weak and prone to spread the evil word."

The Imitation of Christ, Book One, chapter four
