Deliberate treachery entails punishment upon the traitor. There is no possibility of escaping it, even in the highest rank to which the consent of society can exalt the meanest and worst of men.

223. oldal - I think the most exalted faculties of the human mind a gift worthy of the divinity ; nor any assistance, in the improvement of them, a subject of gratitude to my fellow-creature, if I w.ere not satisfied, that really to inform the understanding corrects and enlarges the heart.
33. oldal - Vhe same bias and inclination to depart from the decisions of your predecessors, which you certainly ought to receive as evidence of the common law.
