Some Thoughts On Vices From Various Authors

“The problem with people who have no vices is that generally you can be pretty sure they’re going to have some pretty annoying virtues.”

Elizabeth Taylor

“Be at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let every new year find you a better man.”

Benjamin Franklin

“The way I see it, every life is a pile of good things and bad things. The good things don’t always soften the bad things, but vice versa, the bad things don’t always spoil the good things and make them unimportant.”

Frazer Hines

“In order to know virtue, we must first acquaint ourselves with vice.”

Marquis de Sade

“Have no fear of robbers or murderers. They are external dangers, petty dangers. We should fear ourselves. Prejudices are the real robbers; vices the real murderers. The great dangers are within us. Why worry about what threatens our heads or our purses? Let us think instead of what threatens our souls.”

Victor Hugo
