14 The murderer rising with the light killeth the poor and needy, and in the night is as a thief.
...criminals are cowards no matter how gigantic and robust. They cannot be relied on; and where discipline and principles are all lax, disaster and disgrace are inevitable and deserved. Cromwell was convinced of this and adopted a policy in accordance with his conviction. No thief, gambler, or rowdy, could gain admission to his "Ironsides," who were at once the strength of his army, and the terror of the cavaliers.
