A Quote by Augustus William Hare on confidence, evil, neighbors, and purity

Never put much confidence in such as put no confidence in others. A man prone to suspect evil is mostly looking in his neighbor for what he sees in himself. As to the pure all things are pure, even so to the impure all things are impure.

A Quote by Augustus William Hare on country, questions, and wishes

A Quote by Augustus William Hare on ambition, desires, judgment, oppression, quiet, and temper

The real gentleman is one who is gentle in everything, at least in everything that depends on himself - in carriage, temper, constructions, aims, desires. He is mild, calm, quiet, even temperate - not hasty in judgment, not exorbitant in ambition, not overbearing, not proud, not rapacious, not oppressive.
