"[T]here is still a Judge in every Man's Breast, which none can cheat nor corrupt, tho' perhaps it is the only uncorrupt Thing about him. And yet, inflexible and honest as this Judge is, (however polluted the Bench be on he sits) no man can, in my Opinion, enjoy any Applause which is not thus adjudged to be his Due"
— Fielding, Henry (1707-1754)
