The Second Stricture is a book found in Dishonored.
[Excerpt from a work detailing one of the Seven Strictures]
Restrict the Lying Tongue that is like a spark in the heathen's mouth. It is such a little thing, yet from the one spark an entire city may burn to the ground. Better to live a life of silence than unleash a stream of untruth. The echoes of lies come back as the voice of the Outsider.
- This excerpt seems to have been influenced by the Bible:
- So, too, the tongue is a little member and yet makes great brags. Look! How little a fire it takes to set so great a woodland on fire! Well the tongue is a fire. - James 3:5,6
