    The Petty Vices Quote File
    I haven't a particle of confidence in a man who has no redeeming petty vices. --Mark Twain

    The great artists of the world are never Puritans, and seldom respectable. No virtuous man--that is, virtuous in the Y.M.C.A. sense -- has ever painted a picture worth looking at, or written a symphony worth hearing, or a book worth reading.

    Convent : a place of retirement for women who wish for leisure to meditate upon the vice of idleness. -Ambrose Beirce

    Age : that period of life in which we compound for the vices that we still cherish by reviling those that we have no longer the enterprise to commit.

    As far as I'm concerned, I prefer silent vice to ostentatious virtue. --Albert Einstein

    Prohibition, pfft. They tried that in the movies and it didn't work. -Homer Simpson

    Half the harm that is done in this world is due to people who want to feel important. They don't mean to do harm -- but the harm does not interest them. Or they do not see it, or they justify it because they are absorbed in the endless struggle to think well of themselves. - T.S. Eliot, 1950.

    It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satisfied; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. -C. S. Lewis
