So true is that old saying, Corruptio optimi pessima.
      - Samuel Purchas, Pilgrimage--To the Reader,
        of religion

The men with the muck-rake are often indispensable to the well-being of society, but only if they know when to stop raking the muck.
      - Theodore Roosevelt,
        address at the corner-stone laying of the Office Building of House of Representatives

Those who corrupt the public mind are just as evil as those who steal from the public.
      - Adlai E. Stevenson

For, firm within, and while at heart untouch'd,
  Ne'er yet by force was freedom overcome.
    But soon as independence stoops the head,
      To vice-enslaved, and vice-created wants,
        Then to some foul corrupting-hand, whose waste
          Their craving lusts with fatal bounty feeds,
            They fall a willing, undefended prize;
              From man to man th' infectious softness runs,
                Till the whole state unnerved in slavery sinks.
      - James Thomson (1)

There is no odor so bad as that which arises from goodness tainted.
      - Henry David Thoreau

E'en grave divines submit to glittering gold,
  The best of consciences are bought and sold.
      - Dr. John Wolcot (Wolcott or Woolcott) (used pseudonym Peter Pindar)
