WE ARE MISJUDGED.  He who always listens to hear how he is judged is always vexed.  For we are misjudged even by those who are nearest to us ("who know us best").  Even good friends sometimes vent their ill humour in a spiteful word; and would they be our friends if they knew us rightly?  The judgments of the indifferent wound us deeply, because they sound so impartial, so objective almost.  But when we see that someone hostile to us knows us in a concealed point as well as we know ourselves, how great is then our vexation!
