Letter 52

Joseph Addison Fotografia

„A man's first care should be to avoid the reproaches of his own heart; his next to escape the censures of the world“

—  Joseph Addison politician, writer and playwright 1672 - 1719

Kontekst: A man's first care should be to avoid the reproaches of his own heart; his next to escape the censures of the world: if the last interferes with the former, it ought to be entirely neglected; but otherwise there cannot be a greater satisfaction to an honest mind, than to see those approbations which it gives itself seconded by the applauses of the public: a man is more sure of his conduct, when the verdict which he passes upon his own behaviour is thus warranted and confirmed by the opinion of all that know him.
