Nam Libe­ro Tempore

On the other hand, we deno­un­ce with righ­te­ous indi­gna­tion and disli­ke men who are so begu­iled and demo­ra­li­zed by the charms of ple­asu­re of the moment, so blin­ded by desi­re, that they can­not fore­see the pain and tro­uble that are bound to ensue; and equ­al bla­me belongs to tho­se who fail in the­ir duty thro­ugh weak­ness of will, which is the same as say­ing thro­ugh shrin­king from toil and pain. The­se cases are per­fec­tly sim­ple and easy to distinguish.
