“He who would do good to another must do it in Minute Particulars…General Good is the plea of the scoundrel, hypocrite, and flatterer”

~ William Blake (Source: Jerusalem, f. 55, ll. 48–53, 60–6).

Quoted by Alexander S. Hoare in his Bank newsletter https://www.hoaresbank.co.uk/sites/default/files/styles/Documents/Letters/Summer%20Letter%202017.pdf
