Often, many of those who favor wisdom fail by doubting others too much. Those who favor benevolence fail by trusting others too much. Both are unbalanced. However by doing this act of merit, those who trust others have an edge over those who doubt them… For this reason, I would much rather fail by trusting others too much than by fail by doubting them.
