Not Strong Enough

Anthony Trollope (1815-1882), The Way We Live Now, chapter I (Alfred Booker speaking):
"Bad; of course it is bad," he said to a young friend who was working with him on his periodical. "Who doubts that? How many very bad things are there that we do! But if we were to attempt to reform all our bad ways at once, we should never do any good thing. I am not strong enough to put the world straight, and I doubt if you are."
