"But for Malta?"

In A Man for All Season, Thomas More witheringly addresses his former best friend, Richard Rich, after Rich had offered perjured testimony in exchange for the position of Attorney General for Wales:

"Richard, the Lord said that it did not profit a man to gain the whole world if he lost his soul. The whole world, Richard ... but for Wales?"

In other news, President Obama has named Doug Kmiec to be Ambassador to Malta.

Well put.
