Traitor Quotes

Being called a traitor by Dick Cheney is the highest honor you can give an American, and the more panicked talk we hear from people like him, Feinstein, and King, the better off we all are. If they had taught a class on how to be the kind of citizen Dick Cheney worries about, I would have finished high school.

Edward Snowden

The young man who joins a political party is a traitor to his generation and to his race.

Corneliu Zelea Codreanu

A dagger has only a single point, but a traitor cuts from anywhere.

Orson Scott Card

The traitor to Humanity is the traitor most accursed; Man is more than Constitutions; better rot beneath the sod, Than be true to Church and State while we are doubly false to God.

James Russell Lowell

This principle is old, but true as fate, Kings may love treason, but the traitor hate.

Thomas Dekker

Though those who are betrayed do feel the treason sharply, yet the traitor stands in worse case of woe.

William Shakespeare

There is no traitor like him whose domestic treason plants the poniard within the breast that trusted to his truth.

Lord Byron

Write on my gravestone: "Infidel, Traitor."--infidel to every church that compromises with wrong; traitor to every government that oppresses the people.

Wendell Phillips

I desire what is good. Therefore, everyone who does not agree with me is a traitor.

George III of England

Treason pleases, but not the traitor.

Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra

A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague.

Marcus Tullius Cicero

No wise man ever thought that a traitor should be trusted.

Marcus Tullius Cicero
