    One Nash poem that I especially loved and have not been able to find on line (nor do I know the title) was about hating the sinner but loving the sin. (The sins in question were gluttony, drink and.) He described three improbably ghastly fellows who suffered from the sin, and reflected that " if one had to sin...." and concluded,
    " Consider now how fortunate am I
    Who loathe the sinner yet who loves the sin."
