4. You encountered hardship amongst your school-fellows because you did not know them well. You should learn to not make enemies because of your prejudices unless they behave badly with you.

TRANSCRIPT

You seemed at first to take no notice of your school-fellows, or rather to set yourself against ‘them because they were strangers to you. They knew as little of you as you did of them; this would have been the reason for their keeping aloof from you as well, which you would have felt as a hardship. Learn never to conceive a prejudice against others because you know nothing of them. It is bad reasoning and makes enemies of half the world. Do not think ill of them till they behave ill to you, and then strive to avoid the faults which you see in them. This will disarm their hostility sooner than pique or resentment or complaint.
