A Quote by J. Edgar Hoover on citizenship, crime, laws, responsibility, and truth

Above all, I would teach him to tell the truth. . . . Truth-telling, I have found, is the key to responsible citizenship. The thousands of criminals I have seen in 40 years of law enforcement have had one thing in common: Every single one was a liar.

J. Edgar Hoover (1895 - 1972)
