        Just make sure you don't empower yourself or others to be miserly or overbearing with reference to others. That would be doing what is evil.

    What are some examples of characters quoting literature relevant to their situation? Why aren't there more examples of this in literature? (It's replete in Chinese literature, due to the unity in their scholar culture. We even see the trickle down to their martial arts movies.)

      >‘It must have been exceedingly trying, meeting Sir Watkyn in such circumstances.’
      >‘Yes, and it’s going to be a dashed sight more trying if he catches me pinching his cow creamer. I keep seeing a vision of him doing it.’
      >‘I quite understand, sir. And thus the native hue of resolution is sicklied o’er with the pale cast of thought, and enterprises of great pitch and moment in this regard their currents turn awry and lose the name of action.’
      >‘Exactly. You take the words out of my mouth.’

    I always liked Blakes Proverbs of hell, some seem a little incoherent but they're quite nice
    >The cut worm forgives the plough.
    >Dip him in the river who loves water.
    >He whose face gives no light shall never become a star.
    >The busy bee has no time for sorrow.
    >The hours of folly are measured by the clock, but of wisdom no clock can measure.
    >No bird soars too high if he soars with his own wings.
    >Shame is Pride's cloak.
    >The nakedness of woman is the work of God.
    >The fox condemns the trap, not himself.
    >The bird a nest, the spider a web, man friendship.
    >The fox provides for himself, but God provides for the lion.
    >You never know what is enough unless you know what is more than enough.
    >If others had not been foolish we should have been so.
    >Improvement makes straight roads, but the crooked roads without
    Improvement are roads of Genius.
    >Sooner murder an infant in its cradle than nurse unacted desires.
