PITHY QUOTES FROM PAST MASTERS



The humanity of a king would lead him to pardon at the expense of penal justice. He would do good on a small scale, harm on a large scale, so that there would be a great loss in the balance. Virtue, doing a small quantity of good, may be accompanied with vice in great quantity. A man is rescued from prison whose death might be a public benefit.


The Collected Works of Jeremy Bentham. Deontology, Appendix C: "Hume's Virtues"
