A little sincerity is a dangerous thing, and a great deal of it is absolutely fatal.As for those who, with a wry smile, are always pointing to America's alleged monetary gains in the "war for oil":
Arguments are to be avoided; they are always vulgar and often convincing.
The cynic knows the price of everything and the value of nothing.As for those who are always defending the "peace camp", in spite of numerous pieces of evidence that their members' humanistic posturing was, at least partly, a scam:
Consistency is the last refuge of the unimaginative.As far as the "sky-is-falling" stories about Yankee plots and conspiracies are concerned:
Seriousness is the only refuge of the shallow.
Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else's opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation.
I can believe anything, provided that it is quite incredible.Et, pour finir:
A man cannot be too careful in the choice of his enemies.
Always forgive your enemies; nothing annoys them so much.
