It is good to be without vices, but it is not good to be without temptations.  Walter Bagehot

Our virtues and vices couple with one another, and get children that resemble both their parents.  George Savile

Without enthusiasm, virtue functions not at all, and vice only poorly.  Mignon McLaughlin

The vices of the rich and great are mistaken for error; and those of the poor and lowly, for crimes.

How like herrings and onions our vices are in the morning after we have committed them.  Samuel Taylor Coleridge
