Prudence and simplicity are like two good sisters who are inseparable, and are so necessary for our spiritual advancement that the man who knew how to make use of them properly would doubtless amass great treasures of grace and merits.
Vincent de Paul (Volume: 11 | Page#: 42) Prudence
Do I say things as they are or as I want them to be? What causes me to conceal or hide something from another? Am I transparent, sincere in my dealings with others?
