The heart of a scoundrel

There is a quote in my mind that I thought came from Confessions by Rousseau, but I can find no confirmation of that.  It goes like this:

"I do not know what may lie in the heart of a scoundrel, but I have seen the heart of an honest man and it is horrible."

Can anyone help me?

  1. This quote has some similarities though not a direct hit.
