Non est jam dicere, "Ut populus, sic sacerdos"; quia nec si populus, ut sacerdos.
One cannot now say, the priest is as the people, for the truth is that the people are not so bad as the priest. St. Bernard of Clairvaux In Conversione S. Pauli, Sermon 1, sect. 3; translation by James Spedding, in The Works of Francis Bacon (1860) vol. 12, p. 134. Ut populus, sic sacerdos is a quotation from Isaiah 24:2.
