INDULGENCE
[ Also see Abstinence Discipline Drinking Eating Firmness Intemperance Lust Luxury Pleasure Self-denial Voluptuousness Wine and Spirits ]

Society is no more indulgent than was the God of Genesis.
      - Honore de Balzac

What moralist can deny that well-bred and vicious people are much more agreeable than their virtuous counterparts? Having crimes to atone for, they provisionally solicit indulgence by showing leniency toward the defects of their judges. Thus they pass for excellent folk.
      - Honore de Balzac

A fat kitchen makes a lean will.
      - Benjamin Franklin

Indulgence, twin sister of guilt.
      - Madame Suzanne Curchod Necker

Indulgence is lovely in the sinless; toleration, adorable in the pious and believing heart.
      - Madame Anne Sophie Swetchine (Soimonoff)
