As independent as the author could be said to have been in delivering this maxim, there are existing similar wise saying that the maxim can be compared to in terms of meaning and significance. Most of these existing and popular wise sayings help in establishing firmer grounds to confirm and refute the maxim. An example of wise saying that makes the confirmation of the maxim possible and easier is Confucius’ claim in Analects (26) that “It’s hopeless! I never see people who can recognize their own faults and then inwardly accuse themselves.” The claim by Marcus Aurelius in Meditations, Book4, 26 that, “All that happens has been fated by the whole from the beginning and spun for your own destiny” is on the other hand a refutation of the maxim. The numerous reports of abuse of law in our society are indeed an situation that focuses on the confirmation of the maxim. However, the liberties and fundamental human rights that people are given to enjoy could also be used as refutation to the claim. Confirmation There can be said to be several passages, events and quotations that amplifies the wisdom and factuality in the position taken by the author as condemning the evil and sinful choices that humans make in life. …

Regardless of the self induced realizations that we are often accorded, we go on to make wrong and disgusting choices as we see of the swine and barnyard fowl make, and this always becomes problematic to society at large. In The Desert Fathers, we read of the quote, “Ammonas said that for fourteen years Scetis had been asking God day and night to give him strength to control his temper” (The Saying of the Early Christian Monks, ch 7, 3). This quote confirms that indeed we are always aware of how wrong our actions are but continue to clad ourselves with them. even whiles asking God to help us overcome them. A number of events have occurred around the world to confirm the wisdom in the maxim, most of which can be judged from the effect of the sins and wrong acts that people commit. An example of such events can be mentioned as terrorist acts, which always lead to the destruction of precious human lives and property. As claimed by the author, if the washing of the swine in the mire and the washing in the sand by the barnyard did not matter to the larger society, then committers of evil would be the only suffers of the consequences but this has not always been the case. What is more severe is that the evil choices that people make do not only come in the forms of performed acts but neglected acts as well. In the quote from Meditations, we read that “There can often be wrongs of omission as well as commission” (Marcus Aurelius, Book9, 5). An instance of wrong of omission that can bring about disastrous consequence is a pharmacist who refuses to add active ingredient needed to control the side effects of a piece of medicine. People who take the medicine can suffer dying consequence as a result of the omission.
