“And you think you can get the truth from me?” asked Hugo.  “You might as well ask a chicken the truth about the fox.”

“It might be truer than the fox’s own story,” said Janna.

– Hilda Van Stockum (The Borrowed House)

Proverbs 18:17

He that is first in his own cause seemeth just; but his neighbour cometh and searcheth him.

Proverbs 18:13

He that answereth a matter before he heareth it, it is folly and shame unto him.
