Inconsistency is the only thing in which men are consistent.
Inconsistencies cannot both be right; but, imputed to man, they may both be true.
Ah, how unjust to Nature and himself Is thoughtless, thankless, inconsistent man!
When indignation takes possession of his mind - and it is easily excited - his disposition becomes malevolent. He hates with the bitterest contempt. But as soon as he has indulged those feelings, he regains the humanity which he had lost - from the immediate impulse of provocation - and repents deeply. So that his mind is continually making the most sudden transitions - from good to evil, from evil to good. A state of such perpetual tumult must be attended with the misery of restless inconsistency. He laments his want of tranquillity and speaks of the power of application to composing studies, as a blessing placed beyond his attainment, which he regrets.
CHRISTIAN, n. One who follows the teachings of Christ in so far as they are not inconsistent with a life of sin.
Absurdity, n. A statement or belief manifestly inconsistent with one's own opinion.
We are all patchwork, and so shapeless and diverse in composition that each bit, each moment, plays its own game.
