As fire when thrown into water is cooled down and put out, so also a false accusation when brought against a man of the purest and holiest character, boils over and is at once dissipated, and vanishes and threats of heaven and sea, himself standing unmoved.
Cicero, Marcus T.

15.

Confucius

Emerson, Ralph Waldo

30.
Put more trust in nobility of character than in an oath.
