It's somehow a pars pro toto for the daily secrets being published.
Ah, and - perhaps - it is about the time you are to be introduced to one of my closest friend's "ceterum censeos":
Banquo knew before
And oftentimes, to win us to our harm,
The instruments of darkness tell us truths,
Win us with honest trifles, to betray’s
In deepest consequence.
In German it sounds even more impressive (and not only because "Death is a master from Germany")
Oft, uns in Elend zu verlocken
Erzählen Wahrheit uns des Dunkels Schergen,
Gewinnen uns durch ehrlich Spiel im Kleinen,
Um uns in größten Dingen zu verraten.
Shakespeare, McBeth 1.,3
