Three of the best book quotes about treachery
  1. #1
    “I know you now, old enemies of mine!
    Falsehood! . . . Have at you! Ha! and Compromise!
    Prejudice, Treachery!. . .
    Surrender, I?
    Parley? No, never! You too, Folly,—you?
    I know that you will lay me low at last;
    Let be! Yet I fall fighting, fighting still!”

He was the new man of Southern Africa, the result of the hundred years of torture, treachery, racism, and slaughter in the name of one color or another.”
