Thomas à Kempis (c. 1380–1471)

No man appears in safety before the public eye unless he first relishes obscurity. No man is safe in speaking unless he loves to be silent. No man rules safely unless he is willing to be ruled. No man commands safely unless he has learned well how to obey. No man rejoices safely unless he has within him the testimony of a good conscience.

— Thomas á Kempis, The Imitation of Christ Book 1, Chapter 20.
