Wisdom from Polonius
"Political language is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind."
"It is error only, and not truth, that shrinks from inquiry."
"Truth does not change according to our ability to stomach it."
"If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything."
