Ett dagsrelevant citat

“Rise [to speak] but seldom — let this be on important matters — and then make yourself thoroughly acquainted with the subject. Never be agitated by more than a decent warmth, & offer your sentiments with modest diffidence — opinions thus given, are listened to with more attention than when delivered in a dictatorial stile. The latter, if attended to at all, although they may force conviction, is sure to convey disgust also.” (ett av de få bevarade citaten av George Washington)
