Quote #7

Good, he who keeps faith, nor too quickly his grief
from his breast makes known, except he, noble, knows how beforehand
to do cure with courage.
(113-115)

With these lines, the speaker returns to the idea that it's better not too reveal one's sorrow in speech. This time, however, there's an exception to the rule: if the grief-stricken person knows how to "do cure," to make his sadness go away, it's OK for him to speak about his grief.
