Subject:    Question: Appropriate Quotation

A colleague in politics sent me this inquiry. Can anyone help with an 
appropriate quotation?

Thanks!

"Is there a quote that captures the idea of speaking kind words  while thrusting 
in the knife -- that is, empty rhetoric combined with aggression? Perhaps from 
one of the political plays?"
