  • For improperations and imprecations will rather betray thy affections than in any manner, hurt him against whom thou utters them.

    George Washington's Rules of Civility

  • We have reformed from them, not against them: for, omitting those improperations [I. 2] and terms of scurrility betwixt us, which only difference our affections, and not our cause, there is between us one common name and appellation, one faith and necessary body of principles common to us both; and therefore I am not scrupulous to converse and live with them, to enter their churches in defect of ours, and either pray with them or for them.
