Livy.

  There’s neither honesty, manhood, nor good fellowship in thee.
Shakespeare.

  There is no knife that cuts so sharply and with such poisoned blade as treachery.
Ouida.    
  5
  There is no traitor like him whose domestic treason plants the poniard within the breast which trusted to his truth.
