I have nothing but contempt for the kind of governor who is afraid, for whatever reason, to follow the course that he knows is best for the State; and as for the man who sets private friendship above the public welfare - I have no use for him either.
The ideal condition
Would be, I admit, that men should be right by instinct;
But since we are all likely to go astray,

Big words are always punished,
And proud men in old age learn to be wise.
