«And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, In my dream, behold, I stood upon the bank of the river: / And, behold, there came up out of the river seven kine, fatfleshed and well favoured; and they fed in a meadow: / And, behold, seven other kine came up after them, poor and very ill favoured and leanfleshed, such as I never saw in all the land of Egypt for badness: / And the lean and the ill favoured kine did eat up the first seven fat kine: / And when they had eaten them up, it could not be known that they had eaten them; but they were still ill favoured, as at the beginning. So I awoke.»

«A silly idea is current that good people do not know what temptation means. This is an obvious lie. Only those who try to resist temptation know how strong it is.... A man who gives in to temptation after five minutes simply does not know what it would have been like an hour later. That is why bad people, in one sense, know very little about badness. They have lived a sheltered life by always giving in.»
