A man is his own easiest dupe, for what he wishes to be true he generally believes to be true.
The readiest and surest way to get rid of censure, is to correct ourselves.
To remind a man of the good turns you have done him is very much like a reproach.
What we have in us of the image of God is the love of truth and justice.
Demosthenes (384 BC - 322 BC)
