It is always a vulgar and often an unhealthy pastime, and it is a vice which does not go alone; the man who gambles will find himself capable of any evil.
Vice is its own reward. It is virtue which, if it is to be marketed with consumer appeal, must carry Green Shield stamps.
As every student in Philosophy 101 learns, nothing can force me to believe that anyone except me is conscious. This power to deny that other people have feelings is not just an academic exercise but an all-too-common vice, as we see in the long history of human cruelty.
There are some faults so nearly allied to excellence that we can scarce weed out the vice without eradicating the virtue.
Each is under the most sacred obligation not to squander the material committed to him, not to sap his strength in folly and vice, and to see at the least that he delivers a product worthy the labor and cost which have been expended on him.
Anna Julia Cooper
I can see how the young girls really get hurt when their moms are critical, or vice versa when they're overly critical of their moms. It can be so painful.
To me, makeup is fashion and vice versa. What I dress and what I wear always needs to work with my makeup, which is usually the same anyway.
Except for the title 'father,' there is no title, including 'vice president,' that I am more proud to wear than that of United States senator.
Vice is a creature of such hideous mien... that the more you see it the better you like it.
Finley Peter Dunne
Hillary Clinton is as qualified or more qualified than I am to be Vice President of the United States of America. Let's get that straight. She's a truly close personal friend.

Hypocrisy is the tribute that vice pays to virtue.
I won vice president of my student body in high school. That doesn't mean anything.
Man will never understand woman and vice versa. We are oil and water. An equal level can never be maintained, as one will always excel where the other doesn't, and that breeds resentment.
Though ambition in itself is a vice, it often is also the parent of virtue.
So if the players trust the coach, it's not a problem. If the players don't trust the coach, it is a problem, and vice versa.
