A tinfoil wrapper doesn’t make a bum cigar taste any better.

Corruption is worse than prostitution.  The latter might endanger the morals of an individual, the former invariably endangers the morals of the entire country.

I have often been asked to be fair and view a matter from all sides.  I did so, hoping something might improve if I viewed all sides of it.  But the result was the same.  So I went back to viewing things only from one side, which saves me a lot of work and disappointment.  For it is comforting to regard something as bad and be able use one’s prejudice as an excuse.
