"Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds. The mediocre mind is incapable of understanding the man who refuses to bow blindly to conventional prejudices and chooses instead to express his opinions courageously and honestly." - Albert Einstein
Behind the badges, beneath the robes, and important titles...beats hearts that are no more perfect than your own. Just because someone has a position of authority doesn't mean that they are paragons of virtue. As such, they are just as capable as anyone of having dark motives behind their bright smiles and smooth talk. Be careful who you trust and always double-check what you hear from them.
