"...the office shows the man: for just as vases that are cracked cannot readily be detected so long as they are empty, yet if liquid be put into them, show at once just where the defect lies--in like manner corrupt and depraved minds rarely disclose their defects save when they are filled with authority."
Castiglione, The Book of the Courtier
