" For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteous-
ness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment
delivered unto them.”-2 PETER ji. 21.

“Men talk as if we ought to speak leniently of the faults of a man who de-
lights us by his genius or his talents. This precisely is the man whose faults
we should be prompt to mark, because he is the man whose faults are the
most seducing to the world.”-DYMOND, 186-7.
