Echoes through time: those who’ll reproach you

When you’ve decided that you ought to do something and are doing it, never try to avoid being seen to do it, even if most people will probably view it with disapproval; for if it isn’t right to do it, avoid doing it in the first place, but if it is, why be afraid of those who’ll reproach you without justification.

Epictetus (c.50 – 135), Handbook (35)
