A Quote by St. John de Crévecoeur on chance, direction, principles, punishment, and timidity

He who governs himself according to what he calls his principles may be punished either by one party or the other for those very principles. He who proceeds without principle, as chance, timidity, or self-preservation directs, will not perhaps fare better; but he will be less blamed.

St. John de Crevecoeur
