About this Quote

This quote by Leigh Hunt highlights the hypocrisy of specific individuals who hold power and control over others. These individuals are known for being able to deny others of their fundamental rights and requirements, yet they themselves indulge in excess and decline to reject themselves anything. This behavior showcases a lack of compassion and a self-centered mindset, where they prioritize their own desires above the well-being of others. It likewise speaks with the corrupt nature of those in positions of authority, who use their power to benefit themselves instead of serving the greater good. In general, this quote functions as a suggestion to be mindful of our actions and to deal with others with fairness and compassion.
