Apathy Is Ascribed to the Modest Man


Apathy is ascribed to the modest man,

Fraud to the devout,

Hypocrisy to the pure,

Cruelty to the hero,

Hostility to the anchorite,

Fawning to the courteous man,

Arrogance to the majestic,

Garrulity to the eloquent,

Impotence to the faithful.

Does there exist any virtue

Which escapes

The slander of wicked men?
