Something Much to be Regretted

"It is much to be regretted, however common the case is, that men who possess talents which fit them for peculiar purposes should almost invariably be under the influence of an untoward disposition, or are sottish idle, or possessed of some other disqualification by which they plague all those with whom they are concerned."

~George Washington, letter to David Stuart, Philadelphia, November 20, 1791
