The greatest traitor has always resembled an honest man and the greatest falsehood comes across as truth.
Righteousness and evil cannot be discerned by their appearance.
People have decided wrongly about me in the past.
Today they still misjudge me,
and may continue to do so in the future
However, I shall remain myself.
I have never cared about others misjudging me
Did Cao Cao say that? What's the context? Is it fictional?
Who is Cao Cao? Cao Cao is the king of Wei. One of the king in the three kingdom era. He is the last prime minister of the Han Dynasty. After his death, his son topples emperor Xian and establish the Wei dynasty.
Why I seriously doubt the quote? I do not know the source. I've read the whole Romance of Three Kingdom and I do not remember him saying this.
Searching the web only shows that he supposedly say this but not the source.
I want to know more context.
