Don’t rush into judging & telling the world about anything.

【自清】

什么事都不要急着辩解,什么话都不要忙着倾述

被人中傷時,不要急著為自己辯解,免得愈描愈黑。所以,是非与谣言止于智者,被冤枉就淡忘,被误解就善解,时间久了自然清者自清、浊者自浊,也就是日久见人心。

The word “冲动” perfectly explains this Chinese proverb. It means rushing into something without thinking much about it first. Something I intimately remember as this is a very common advice in the Chinese culture. In movies that we’ve seen and stories we’ve heard from many people, this advice is always included.

Don’t rush into things. Take some time to think things through. If time is not on your side, remember my another Chinese proverb.
