The Instruments of Good Works

Not to gratify anger; not to harbor a desire of revenge, not to foster guile in your heart, not to make a feigned peace, not to forsake charity. Not to swear, lest perchance you perjure yourself; to utter truth from your heart and your mouth.

Rule of Benedict, Chapter 4
