β€œLet it be set down as an established principle, then, that what is morally wrong can never be expedient β€” not even when one secures by means of it that which one thinks expedient; for the mere act of thinking a course expedient, when it is morally wrong, is demoralizing.” – Marcus Tullius Cicero, De Officiis (trans. Miller)
