Hi,

I have written the following line, and I am not sure how to correct it grammatically. Hence, seeking for help here. The sentence is written below:

Stranger, acquaintance, close friend, cousin, brother or even a mother, one can only say or do so much; leave the rest to the perception or maturity of the other.

Regards, Kiran
