Deceit and Betrayal

La Rochefoucauld, Maxims 114 (tr. J.W. Willis Bund and J. Hain Friswell):
We are inconsolable at being deceived by our enemies and betrayed by our friends, yet still we are often content to be thus served by ourselves.

On ne se peut consoler d'être trompé par ses ennemis, et trahi par ses amis; et l'on est souvent satisfait de l'être par soi-même.
