Suspicion always haunts the guilty mind.
Your sweetheart calls you by another's name. His eyes linger too long on your best friend. He talks with excitement about a girl at work. And the fire catches.

The moment there is suspicion about a person's motives, everything he does becomes tainted.

It wouldn't matter whether you were Latino or Hispanic or Norwegian. If you didn't have proof of citizenship and if the police officer had reasonable suspicion, he would ask and verify your citizenship. I mean, that's the way that it is. That's what the federal law says. And that's what the law in Arizona says.
We are always paid for our suspicion by finding what we suspect.
Henry David Thoreau

Caesar's wife must be above suspicion.
Conflict grows out of ignorance and suspicion.
Gordon B. Hinckley
It's one of the few regrets of my presidency - that the rancor and suspicion between the parties has gotten worse instead of better.

When public men indulge themselves in abuse, when they deny others a fair trial, when they resort to innuendo and insinuation, to libel, scandal, and suspicion, then our democratic society is outraged, and democracy is baffled.
J. William Fulbright
Suspicion is only another form of cowardice. The man who suspects constantly suspects because he is afraid. Whenever you find a man with a free, frank, generous, brave nature, you will find that man without suspicion.
Robert Green Ingersoll
What we won when all of our people united must not be lost in suspicion and distrust and selfishness and politics. Accordingly, I shall not seek, and I will not accept, the nomination of my party for another term as president.
Lyndon B. Johnson
