The practice of Humility - 8

As far as possible, keep yourself in silence and recollection; but do it without causing inconvenience to others, and when you have to speak, do so always with reserve, modesty and simplicity.
If you are not listened to, either through contempt or for any other reason, do not show resentment; rather, accept this humiliation and bear it with resignation and tranquillity.

J. Pecci (later Pope Leo XIII)
