Beware of smooth talk and impatience

子曰:「巧言亂德,小不忍則亂大謀。」
Confucius said: “Smooth talk confounds virtue. Impatience in small matters confounds great plans.”

Beware of those with a silken tongue: if you’re not careful, they will lead you down the wrong path.

Don’t waste valuable time and energy worrying about minor issues; focus on your accomplishing your overall mission.
