Temptations, 1722 edition

Let them remember that a time of distress is a time of dreadful temptation...

--From Moll Flanders--

Is it any wonder that those most in distress are those most prone to temptation?


Trooper York said...

Everyone is prone to temptation. The controlling factor is so often if you feel you will get caught.
The essence of integirty is what you do when nobody is looking.

Gee, is that pompous enough for you. I feel like I should be posting at Althouse.

Trooper, it took me one sentence to release my pompousness, but it took you two. Therefore I'm only half as pompous. Mathematical fact.
