"In order to destroy the prestige of heroism for political
crime, we shall send it for trial in the category of
thieving, murder, and every abominable and filthy crime.
Public opinion will then confuse in its conception this
category of crime with the disgrace attaching to every other
and will brand it with the same contempt."
Protocol 19 of the
"If I am killing a rat with a stick and have him in a
corner, I am not indignant if he tries to bite me and
squeals and gibbers with rage. My job is, not to get angry,
but to keep cool, to attend to my footwork and to keep on
hitting him where it will do the most good."
