PM Quote of the Day — Jane Addams

The essence of immorality is the tendency to make an exception of myself

While I’m on an “Adams” roll, I’ll add a “d” and call on Jane Addams and her takedown of the “me, myself, and I” exception.  There is nothing more tiresome than hearing someone justify the same behavior he/she decries in others with the magic words: “but this was different.”  My first thought always is “sure, it was different, because you were the one doing it!” 

Not that I’ve ever done such a thing, of course…
