Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 208
Trojan horse, maxim, gust, carapace
Although one should never look a gift horse in the mouth, neither should one put the cart before the horse; and should a cart arrive with a gift horse in tow, rather than the other way round, particularly if it be a horse covered not in hide and hair but in a hard carapace, one would be justified in greeting it armed and armored, with gust tempered by suspicion, whence the maxim: "When it comes to Trojan horses, use protection."
