Needs No Further Reflection

'If you should happen to do or say 
something that is not well received 
by everyone, do not for this reason stop 
to reflect on and examine 
your every word and action, 
for undoubtedly it is self-love 
which makes us seek to know 
whether or not what we say 
or do is approved.  
Simplicity leaves the outcome of 
its actions to Providence, 
to which it completely entrusts itself, 
without looking to the right or to the left.'

St. Francis de Sales

Painting:  Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio, Narcissus
