We’re not judged by the evidence, whether for or against us. Nor, are we judged by the friends we have, but only the friends we make and keep. That is accomplished through calmness.
When trouble, opposition, accusation, slander, and assailants come our way, the ability to keep calm and carry on proves idyllic. We all endure storms, turbulence, and chop. Those people who prove to be stable islands of peace in the midst of it all are the people we want to acquit of fault—the people we want to be friends with—the very people we want to become.
