Nine of the best book quotes about fraud
  1. #1
    ″‘Now fraud, that eats away at every conscience,
    is practice by a man against another
    who trust in him, or one who has no trust.
    This latter way seems only to cut off
    the bond of love that nature forges; thus,
    nestled within the second circle are:
    hypocrisy and flattery, sorcerers,
    and falsifiers, simony, and theft,
    and barrators and panders and like trash.
    But in the former way of fraud, not only
    the love that nature forges is forgotten,
    but added love that builds a special trust;
    thus, in the tightest circle, where there is
    the universe’s center, seat of Dis,
    all traitors are consumed eternally.‘”

And to anyone who thinks there’s anything glamorous about being known as a Wolf of Wall Street.”

    “If I find in myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world. If none of my earthly pleasures satisfy it, that does not prove that the universe is a fraud.”

    ″‘Fraud?’ said Selia. ‘Royalty is not a right, Captain. The willingness of the people to follow a ruler is what gives her power. Here, in this place, by this people, I have been chosen. These men are tired of being told whom to follow. Now they have a choice, and they use that choice to call me Princess.’ Selia’s words seemed seductively convincing. Even Ani, peering through pine boughs, had to stop herself from nodding. But Adon stepped up beside Talone and challenged her.”
