Be Prepared

Jane Austen (1775-1817), Mansfield Park, chapter I (Sir Thomas Bertram speaking):
[We] must prepare ourselves for gross ignorance, some meanness of opinions, and very distressing vulgarity of manner...
A quotation of wide application. It could be said, for example, by a teacher anticipating the first day of school, or by anyone facing an upcoming family reunion.
