The Problem With Lying Is The Lie Itself


“Oh, what a tangled web we weave when we practice to deceive”
Walter Scott

“You can stop a thief but not a liar. It is much worse when they are both.”
Anon

“The liar was the hottest to defend his veracity, the coward his courage, the ill-bred his gentlemanliness, and the cad his honour”
Margaret Mitchell

“A liar only uses the truth when they want their lies to sound truthful and one lie can tarnish a thousand truths”
Al David

“He who permits himself to tell a lie once, finds it much easier to do it a second time, till at length it becomes habitual; he tells lies without attending to it, and truth’s without the world believing him. This falsehood of the tongue leads to that of the heart, and in time depraves all its good dispositions.”
Thomas Jefferson

“When the lies are all old and forgot the truth will still be there yet.”
Cormac Mc Carthy

“My father always told me that what’s wrong with lying is that it is an admission of weakness. If you’re the strongest, you can afford to tell the truth.”
