"In fact, behaviour in most circumstances is now so much thought of, that simplicity of character is rarely seen: yet, if men were only anxious to cultivate each virtue, and let it take root firmly in the mind, the grace resulting from it, its natural exterior mark, would soon strip affectation and flaunting plumes; because, fallacious as unstable, is the conduct that is not founded on truth!"
— Wollstonecraft, Mary (1759-1797)
