Better safe than sorry is a piece of wisdom from Samuel Lover’s book, Rory O’More.
The idea is simple.
Life is too short to surround yourself with toxic people.

Finally, Actions speak louder than words is another classic example.
(I say these words to make me glad),
There must be a method to your madness.
