It's hard to beat the rough texture of steel-cut oats, with their slight resistance against the teeth.
Strive to attain to the greater virtues, but do not neglect the lesser ones. Do not make light of a fall even if it be the most venial of faults; rather, be quick to repair it by repentance, although many others may commit a large number of faults, slight and grievous, and remain unrepentant.
When a person who is very ill decides to treat it like a slight virus, you play that game. If you make a big scene, I think it is yourself you are doing it for, not the person who's ill.

Distrust all those who love you extremely upon a very slight acquaintance and without any visible reason.
Philip Stanhope, 4th Earl of Chesterfield
