Book 7: Emperor Pius Dei — Part VI: Long Arm of the Law


Narrator: Abord the embassy ship Terra Firmator. . .
Ambassador Breya: This "Ambassador" job is miserable.
Ambassador Breya: Everybody lies to me, and the first people to do it are the people paying my salary.

I just wish we could have a little more honesty.

Haban: Okay. I used to be part of the Fleetmind, but I resigned because of conflict of interest.
Ambassador Breya: You're just saying that to get a laugh out of me.
Haban: Which shows that there's no practical difference between a truth you won't believe and a lie that you will.
