When a man has so far corrupted and prostituted the chastity of his mind as to subscribe his professional belief to things he does not believe he has prepared himself for the commission of every other crime."
"In wartime, truth is so precious that she should always be attended by a bodyguard of lies."
"A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on."
