The shaft of the arrow had been feathered with one of the eagle's own plumes. We often give our enemies the means of our own destruction.

Distrust interested advice.
Never trust the advice of a man in difficulties.
Affairs are easier of entrance than of exit; and it is but common prudence to see our way out before we venture in.
Appearances often are deceiving.
He that always gives way to others will end in having no principles of his own.
Better be wise by the misfortunes of others than by your own.
It is not only fine feathers that make fine birds.
