Good advice from Don Quijote.

Yes, another sentence from the Burton Raffel translation of Don Quijote (this one, from Volume 2, Chapter 55, would appear to be a very good piece of advice):
"Don't be angry, ... and don't be upset by what you hear, or there'll never be an end to it: if you're secure in your own conscience, let them say whatever they want to, because restraining slanderous tongues would be like putting gateways on the open fields."
