Art is the lie that enables us to realize the truth.
The secret of staying young is to live honestly, eat slowly, and lie about your age.
You're not drunk if you can lie on the floor without holding on.
...maybe it's only fitting that relationship that started with a lie would end with one.
To find out if she really loved me, I hooked her up to a lie detector. And just as I suspected, my machine was broken.
We have to lie to ourselves to live. Otherwise, we'd go crazy.
We wait and think and doubt and hate. How does it make you feel? The overwhelming feeling is rage. We hate ourself for being unable to be other than what we are. Unable to be better. We feel rage. The feelings must be followed. It doesn't matter whether you're an ideologue or a sensualist, you follow the stimuli thinking that they're your signposts to the promised land. But they are nothing of the kind. What they are is rocks to navigate the past, each on your brush against, ripping you a little more open and they are always more on the horizon. But you can't face up to the that, so you force yourself to believe the bullshit of those you instinctively know are liars and you repeat those lies to yourself and to others, hoping that by repeating them often and fervently enough you'll attain the godlike status we accord those who tell the lies most frequently and most passionately. But you never do, and even if you could, you wouldn't value it, you'd realise that nobody believes in heroes any more. We know that they only want to sell us something we don't really want and keep from us what we really do need. Maybe that's a good thing. Maybe we're getting in touch with our condition at last. It's horrible how we always die alone, but no worse than living alone.
If you say that you never lie in life, you honestly insult my intelligence.
Mr Lorry asks the witness questions: Ever been kicked? Might have been. Frequently? No. Ever kicked down stairs? Decidedly not; once received a kick at the top of a staircase, and fell down stairs of his own accord.
A philosopher is a blind man in a dark room looking for a black cat that isn't there. A theologian is the man who finds it.
A smiling lie is a whirlwind, easy to enter, but hard to escape.
You can believe in whatsoever you like, but the truth remains the truth, no matter how sweet the lie may taste.
There is no sickness worse for me than words that to be kind must lie.
Never judge someone's character based on the words of another. Instead, study the motives behind the words of the person casting the bad judgment. An honest woman can sell tangerines all day and remain a good person until she dies, but there will always be naysayers who will try to convince you otherwise. Perhaps this woman did not give them something for free, or at a discount. Perhaps too, that she refused to stand with them when they were wrong — or just stood up for something she felt was right. And also, it could be that some bitter women are envious of her, or that she rejected the advances of some very proud men. Always trust your heart. If the Creator stood before a million men with the light of a million lamps, only a few would truly see him because truth is already alive in their hearts. Truth can only be seen by those with truth in them. He who does not have Truth in his heart, will always be blind to her.
There is no other way to determine the difference between the will of God and the crafts of satan... Jesus is the way, the truth and the life... The Holy Spirit of God is the Comforter...
A friend once said, and I found to be true,That everyday people, they lie to God too,So what makes you think, that they won't lie to you.
When you are posessed by evil spirits, it is crafty manipulations that you follow; but when you are posessed by the Holy Spirit of God, it is wise discretions you pursue!
Those who don't value their words, will never value your wishes.
The best lies were always mixed with truth.
Never hide things from hardcore thinkers. They get more aggravated, more provoked by confusion than the most painful truths.
