Wisdom from Polonius
Edward R. Murrow
"Most truths are so naked that people feel sorry for them and cover them up, at least a little bit."
"It is one of the maladies of our age to profess a frenzied allegiance to truth in unimportant matters, to refuse consistently to face her where graver issues are at stake."
"I love you, and because I love you, I would sooner have you hate me for telling you the truth than adore me for telling you lies."
"Truth is the most valuable thing we have. Let us economize it."
