Brief excerpts from Henry V, Act IV, Scene III, by William Shakespeare used by generous permission of nobody, because they're in the public domain, for crying out loud

“If a ship’s master misreads the current, they take away his ship. If a spy misreads the undercurrents, they take away his head.”

—Attributed to Admiral Wilhelm Canaris, Commandant of German Intelligence, at Flossenburg Concentration Camp, Bavaria, Earth; April, 1945, as he awaited execution on suspicion of plotting to kill Adolf Hitler.
