A Quote by François, Duc de La Rochefoucauld on character, goodness, indolence, and strength

No man deserves to be praised for his goodness unless he has strength of character to be wicked. All other goodness is generally nothing but indolence or impotence of will.

Duc de La Rochefoucauld (1613 - 1680)
