Of all virtues and dignities of the mind, goodness is the greatest, being the character of the Deity; and without it, man is a busy, mischievous, wretched thing.We, who follow politics, see the busy, the mischievous, and the wretched on a daily basis . . . So how inspiring it is to witness a genuine act of human goodness
. . . goodness that even a misanthrope can't deny!
