Speak ye every man the truth to his neighbor,–ZECH. viii. 16.
_For our rejoicing is this, the testimony of our conscience, that in simplicity and godly sincerity… we have had our conversation in the world_.–2 COR. i. 12.

Appear I always what I am? And am I what I am pretending? Know I what way my course is bending? And sound my word and thought the same?
ANON.
Am I acting in simplicity, from a germ of the Divine life within, or am I shaping my path to obtain some immediate result of expediency? Am I endeavoring to compass effects, amidst a tangled web of foreign influences I cannot calculate; or am I seeking simply to do what is right, and leaving the consequences to the good providence of God?
M. A. SCHIMMELPENNINCK.
Let it not be in any man’s power to say truly of thee that thou art not simple, or that thou art not good; but let him be a liar whoever shall think anything of this kind about thee; and this is altogether in thy power. For who is he that shall hinder thee from being good and simple?
MARCUS ANTONINUS.
