A Quote by Publius Cornelius Tacitus on anger, expectation, fear, freedom, habits, sincerity, truth, and wonder

Fear is not in the habit of speaking truth; when perfect sincerity is expected, perfect freedom must be allowed; nor has anyone who is apt to be angry when he hears the truth any cause to wonder that he does not hear it.
