Quote by Michel de Montaigne
No man is so exquisitely honest or upright in living, but that ten times in his life he might not lawfully be hanged.
This quote reflects the idea that even the most morally upright individuals are not exempt from making mistakes or committing wrongful acts at some point in their lives. It suggests that no person is completely devoid of fault or immune to temptations that could potentially lead to punishable actions. It serves as a reminder to approach judgment with caution and recognize the fallibility and complex nature of human beings.
When making a decision of minor importance, I have always found it advantageous to consider all the pros and cons. In vital matters, however, such as the choice of a mate or a profession, the decision should come from the unconscious, from somewhere within ourselves. In the important decisions of personal life, we should be governed, I think, by the deep inner needs of our nature.
The Imperial German Government will not expect the Government of the United States to omit any word or any act necessary to the performance of its sacred duty of maintaining the rights of the United States and its citizens and of safeguarding their free exercise and enjoyment.
