Emerson.

  I never knew a trader in philanthropy who was not wrong in his head or heart somewhere or other.
Coleridge.

J. Petit-Senn.

  There was a time when I believed in the persuadability of man, and had the mania of man-mending. Experience has taught me better. The ablest physician can do little in the great lazar-house of society. He acts the wisest part who retires from the contagion.
Southey.
