The Life Of The Blessed Emperor Constantine -Eusebius Pamphilus

“BUT besides this, whoever will mentally retrace the course of events from the earliest period down to the present time, and allow himself to reflect on what has occurred in past ages, will find that all who have made justice and probity the basis of their conduct, have not only carried their undertakings to a successful issue, but have gathered as it were a store of sweet fruit as the produce of this pleasant root. Again, whoever observes the career of those who have been bold in the practice of oppression or injustice; who have either directed their senseless fury against God Himself, or have conceived no kindly feelings towards their fellow-men, but have dared to afflict them with exile, disgrace, confiscation, massacre, or other miseries of the like kind (and all this without any sense of compunction, or wish to direct their thoughts to a better course), will find that such men have received a recompense proportioned to their crimes. And these are results which might naturally and reasonably be expected to ensue.
