Ch 08 On Rules For Conduct In Life - Maxim 43

Sa di

 Next Poem          

A scholar is not meekly to overlook the folly of a common person because thus both parties are injured; the dignity of the former being lessened, and the ignorance of the latter confirmed.

Speak gracefully and kindly to a low fellow,
His pride and obstinacy will augment.
