decalogue quotes- 5 of
Take not God's name in vain; select
A time when it will have effect.
Thou shalt not kill; but need'st not strive
Officiously to keep alive:
Thou shalt not covet; but tradition
Approves all forms of competition.
Thou shalt have one God only; who
Would be at the expense of two?
When angry, count ten, before you speak; if very angry, an hundred.
