"Nothing Is Sacred Now..."

"The wit of cheats, the courage of a whore, 
Are what ten thousand envy and adore. 
All, all look up, with reverential awe, 
at crimes that 'scape, or triumph o'er the Law, 
while truth, worth, wisdom, daily they decry-
'Nothing is sacred now but Villainy.'"

 - Alexander Pope, "Epilogue to the Satires, Dialogue I"
