St. Jerome

  Let your daughter have first of all the book of Psalms for holiness of heart, and be instructed in the Proverbs of Solomon for her godly life.  3
  Misfortune is never mournful to the soul that accepts it; for such do always see that every cloud is an angel’s face.  4
  No one loves to tell of scandal except to him who loves to hear it. Learn, then, to rebuke and check the detracting tongue by showing that you do not listen to it with pleasure.  5
