Alike were they free from Fear, that reigns with the tyrant, and envy, the vice of republics. Neither locks had they to their doors, nor bars to their windows; But their dwellings were open as day and the hearts of their owners; There the richest was poor, and the poorest lived in abundance.
Content thyself to be obscurely good. When vice prevails, and impious men bear sway, The post of honour is a private station.joseph addison
Forts, arsenals, garrisons, armies, navies, are means of security and defence, which were invented in half-civilized times and in feudal or despotic countries; but schoolhouses are the republican line of fortifications, and if they are dismantled and dilapidated, ignorance and vice will pour in their legions through every breach.horace mann
As far as I'm concerned I prefer silent vice to ostentatious virtue.Albert Einstein
La cruaute , bien loin d'e" tre un vice, est le premier sentiment qu'imprime en nous la nature; l'enfant brise son hochet, mord le te ton de sa nourrice, e trangle son oiseau, bien avant que d'avoir l'a" ge de raison. Far from being a vice, cruelty is the primary feeling that nature imprints in us. The infant breaks its rattle, bites its nurse's nipple, and strangles a bird, well before reaching the age of reason.

We are a democracy, and there is only one way to get a democracy on its feet in the matter of its individual, its social, its municipal, its State, its National conduct, and that is by keeping the public informed about what is going on.There isnot a crime, there isnot a dodge, there is not a trick, there is not a swindle, there is not a vice which does not live by secrecy.Get these things out in the open, describe them, attack them, ridicule them in the press, and sooner or later public opinion will sweep them away.joseph pulitzer
"It is not, perhaps, unreasonable to conclude, that a pure and perfect democracy is a thing not attainable by man, constituted as he is of contending elements of vice and virtue, and ever mainly influenced by the predominant principle of self-interest. It may, indeed, be confidently asserted, that there never was that government called a republic, which was not ultimately ruled by a single will, and, therefore, (however bold may seem the paradox,) virtually and substantially a monarchy."alexander fraser tytler
Anarchism does not mean bloodshed; it does not mean robbery, arson, etc. These monstrosities are, on the contrary, the characteristic features of capitalism. Anarchism, or Socialism, means the re-organization of society upon scientific principles and the abolition of causes which produce vice and crime.
So for a good old-gentlemanly vice, I think I must take up with avarice.lord byron

It would be hard to find a single instance of a direct assault by positive effort upon poverty, vice, and misery which has not either failed or, if it has not failed directly and entirely, has not entailed other evils greater than the one which it removed.William Graham Sumner
There is a war against vice in Lancaster. I am going home to speak for vice.
"We know who the chicken hawks are. They talk tough on national defense and military issues and cast aspersions on others," he said. "When it was their turn to serve where were they? AWOL, that's where they were...the lead chickenhawk against Sen. Kerry [is] the vice president of the United States, vice President Cheney.frank lautenberg
Yet malice never was his aim;He lashed the vice but spared the name.No individual could resent,Where thousands equally were meant.His satire points at no defectBut what all mortals may correct;For he abhorred that senseless tribeWho call it humor when they gibe.jonathan swift
Principles You can't say A is made of B or vice versa. All mass is interaction.richard feynman
It cannot be a vice in men to be sensible of their strength.vauvenargues, luc de clapiers, marquis de
It is the rate of investment which governs the rate of saving, and not vice versa .
Heaven (or Swarga ) is that which delights the mind ; hell (or Naraka) is that which gives it pain : hence vice is called hell ; virtue is called heaven .
I hate ingratitude more in a man, Than lying, vainness, babbling, drunkenness, Or any taint of vice.william shakespeare
