2. SILENCE:
    Speak not but what may benefit others or yourself; avoid trifling
    conversation.

    time.

      Tolerate no uncleanliness in body, clothes, or habitation.

11. TRANQUILITY:
      Be not disturbed at trifles, or at accidents common or unavoidable.

     or the injury of your own or another's peace or reputation.

13. HUMILITY:
     Imitate Jesus and Socrates
