“There are only two types of people who can be totally honest with each other, lovers and strangers. Everyone else is just negotiating.”

“The NRA was laying down its weapons. Yankee fans were rooting for the Boston Red Sox. The French were eating English food and loving it. Matthew was sure all those things were happening.... This was the proverbial cold day in hell, and Matthew was living it.”
James Grippando, A King's Ransom

“sharing knowledge is power.” “I think the actual saying goes, ‘Knowledge is power.’” “Not in Washington. Here, the real power is in deniability. If I share knowledge with you, I take away your deniability. It’s the ultimate power play.”
James Grippando, Born To Run
