Whilst bloody treason flourished over us. William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar III ii 195

91,580. A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague. (Traitor & Treason) Marcus Tullius Cicero
91,655. Does anyone of the American left give a damn about what their brothers and sisters in these countries feel or want? No, they don’t even ask. Doesn’t come up. That’s betrayal. That I would call treason. (Treason & Betrayal & Left Wing) Christopher Hitchens, interview Iraq: Conflict & Hope

And she looked, and, behold, the king stood at his pillar at the entering in, and the princes and the trumpets by the king: and all the people of the land rejoiced, and sounded with trumpets, also the singers with instruments of musick, and such as taught to sing praise. Then Athaliah rent her clothes, and said, Treason, Treason. II Chronicles 23:13
90,765. The last temptation is the greatest treason:
To do the right deed for the wrong reason. (Temptation & Deed & Treason) T S Eliot, Murder in the Cathedral 1935
91,658. Hast thou betrayed my credulous innocence
With vizor’d falsehood and base forgery? John Milton, Comus l697
91,659. He [Cæsar] loved the treason, but hated the traitor. (Treason & Traitor) Plutarch, Life of Romulus
Is far the worst of treasons. Dost thou deem
None rebels except subjects? The prince who
Neglects or violates his trust is more
A brigand than the robber-chief. (Tyranny & Treason) Lord Byron, The Two Foscari II i
