“Good women don't reform bad men, they only irritate them.”
Talbot Mundy, Her Reputation

“Silence is the only safe answer to Silence.”

“For a government,' said the god, 'is nothing but a mirror of your minds--tyrannical for tyrants--hypocritical for hypocrites --corrupt for those who are indifferent--extravagant and wasteful for the selfish--strong and honorable only toward honest men.”
Talbot Mundy, Om, the Secret of Ahbor Valley
