The essence of immorality is the tendency to make an exception of myself.
The uneducated person perceives only the individual phenomenon, the partly educated person the rule, and the educated person the exception.
The reader need not be told that John Bull never leaves home without encumbering himself with the greatest possible load of luggage. Our companions were no exception to the rule.
The most common lie is that which one lies to himself; lying to others is relatively an exception.
I respect the IBF obligation to fight Povetkin, but I would like the exception to fight David Haye. That is the only title the Klitschkos don’t have. We have them all except the WBA, which is why Haye is such an interesting cookie for me to eat.
