"Everybody is taken in at some period or other."

"Not always in marriage, dear Mary."

"In marriage, especially. With all due respect to such of the present company as chance to be married, my dear Mrs Grant, there is not one of a hundred of either sex who is not taken in when they marry. Look where I will, I see that it is so; and I feel that it must be so, when I consider that it is, of all transactions, the one in which people expect most from others, and are least honest themselves."

Jane Austen, Mansfield Park
