Lat. parallel: (Dist. I, 3) Virtutem primam esse puta conpescere linguam; / proximus ille deo est, qui scit ratione tacere ‘I think the first virtue to be curbing your tongue; he is closest to God who knows how to keep quiet properly’. The advice to listen rather than to speak in a circle of strangers is parallelled in Hsv 16, but this st. concentrates on discretion as a general virtue. A similar idea is expressed in Hávm 103 (cf. NK, 33).
