古人云:「何以息谤?」
曰:「无辩。」
又云:「吃得小亏,则不至于吃大亏。」  
余三十年来屡次经验,深信此数语真实不虚。  

弘一大师
《弘一大师全集》

Ancient ones say, ‘With what ceases slander?’ Saying, ‘Without debate.’ Also saying, ‘Able to suffer a little disadvantage, thus not reaching to suffer greater disadvantages.’ With more than thirty years of repeated experiences, I deeply believe these few words to be true and not false.
