[35] A question of expediency may also be concerned with time (for example, “it is expedient, but not now”) or with place (“it is expedient, but not here”) or with particular persons (“it is expedient, but not for us” or “not as against these”) or with our method of action (“it is expedient, but not thus”) or with degree (“it is expedient, but not to this extent”).

But we have still more often to consider personality with reference to what is becoming, and we must consider our own as well as that of those before whom the question is laid.
