It is not always or even often the bad person who does evil and, in the hope that it will make you more understanding of those who do wrong, because they can be, they are, you and me.

“It is not always or even often the bad person who does evil and, in the hope that it will make you more understanding of those who do wrong, because they can be, they are, you and me.” — Guido Calabresi, 70th Commencement Address, Connecticut College (1988)
