"A thoroughly straightforward man, devoid of all policy, is a terrible puzzle to diplomatists; they suspect him of a subtle duplicity through which they cannot
see; while he, indifferent to their suspicions, holds on the even tenor of his way,
and baffles all their arts. Yes, 'honesty is the best policy.' He who is taught
of God has a practical wisdom, such as malice cannot supply to the crafty; while
harmless as a dove, he also exhibits more than the serpent's wisdom."
