"Language most shows a man; speak that I may see thee" (Ben Jonson).

"When a person who has been living a spiritual life for a long time falls into a serious fault, there is no better way of raising him up again than by exhorting him to manifest his fall to any pious friend with whom he has a particular intimacy: and God will restore him to his former condition for the sake of his humility" (St. Philip Neri).
