Scrupulous people are not suited to great affairs
I came across this quote in some fiction book that I read many years back. I felt that there's a lot of truth in it (and possibly for that reason) it got imprinted in my memory. I just checked the net that the author of this quote is a French economist and statesman by the name of Anne Robert Jacques Turgot.

For some inexplicable reason this quote of Turgot came to my mind after reading the quote of Chanakya (above) though the two are quite different.

And in his unique humorous style Mark Twain defends dishonesty:
Truth is the most valuable thing we have. Let us economize it.
