Cross-Examination: Bad Answers.
A good advocate should be a good actor. The most cautious cross-examiner will often elicit a damaging answer. Now is the time for the greatest self-control. If you show by your face how the answer hurt, you may lose your case by that point alone.
--Francis L. Wellman, The Art of Cross Examination, first published in 1903.
