"The greatest cunning is to have none at all."
 
Every single person, born as a human being in a modern civilization, has to have a tendency of cunning. Without that, survival is impossible. Though it is not very appreciated, and considered as something unrealistic and deceptive, it is the only tool that might come in handy even during the most dangerous of times. Just like we say appearances are deceptive, the most realistic and innocent person could turn out to be the most contemptuous; the best friend might turn into the worst enemy tomorrow. But this, is reality. This is exactly how the world works. Hence, rather than concluding the most innocent person as innocent, who is in fact pretending to be innocent, who is not really innocent, and is filled to the brim with craftiness, he has the greatest cunning.
