Dr. Livesay has his own weaknesses. He is greedy for the treasure and, in his own way, uses others to get at it. He thinks of himself as above reproach and ethical while wanting the same things as the pirates he so admonishes.

Sorry, you will have to do a little work to get your own quotes. Really they are throughout the book. Sometimes they are subtle and sometmes they are overt. The very fact that Livesey is so obsessed with finding this treasure should tell you something.
