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.

Augustus Hare (1792 - 1834)
