I give you my troth on that.

Rest Easy.

Fortem Posce Animum

D. Spencer Hines --- "Barney looked at his reflection in his spoon,
first convex and then concave, and thought a moment. 'Dr. Lecter had
perfect manners, not stiff, but easy and elegant. I was working on
some correspondence courses and he shared his mind with me. That
didn't mean he wouldn't _kill_ me any second if he got the chance ---
one quality in a person doesn't rule out any other quality. They can
exist side by side, good and terrible. Socrates said it a lot better.
In maximum lock-down you can't afford to forget that, ever. If you
keep it in mind, you're all right. Dr. Lecter may be sorry he showed
me Socrates.' To Barney, lacking the disadvantage of formal
schooling, Socrates was a fresh experience, with the quality of an
encounter." _Hannibal_, Thomas Harris, Delacorte Press, [1999], p.
