Righteousness vs Advantage <- Confucius


Any time you see a talking head advocating "national interest" above what is right and good, remember this saying

The man of character cares about what is right,

the inferior man cares about his advantage.

K’ung-fu-tzu, according to the Analects, 4.16 (225 BC)

It’s Still Lying


Even if what you say is technically true, if you knowingly leave a false impression, you are a liar

Veracity does not consist in saying, but in the intention of communicating truth.

— Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Biographia Literaria
