Men in general are neither very good nor very bad. ... I have never examined even the best without discovering faults and frailties invisible at first. ... There are two men in every man; it is childish to see only one; it is sad and unjust to look only at the other.... Man, with all his vices, his weaknesses, and his virtues, this strange mixture of good and bad, of low and lofty, of sincere and depraved, is, after all, the object most deserving of study, interest, pity, affection, and admiration to be found upon the earth; and since we have no angels, we cannot attach ourselves to anything greater or worthier than our fellow creatures.
