A Quote by John Randolph of Roanoke on benevolence, devil, equality, independence, interest, liberty, love, men, needs, power, principles, religion, selfishness, and trying

The principle of liberty and equality, if coupled with mere selfishness, will make men only devils, each trying to be independent that he may fight only for his own interest. And here is the need of religion and its power, to bring in the principle of benevolence and love to men.

A Quote by John Randolph of Roanoke on faults, good, men, past, perception, and seasons

Reprove not, in their wrath, excited men; good counsel comes all out of season then; but when their fury is appeased and past, they will perceive their faults, and mend at last. When he is cool and calm, then utter it.
