A beautiful lie? Listen! That`s creativity.
Stanislaw Jerzy Lec
We all know that art is not truth. Art is a lie that makes us realize the truth.
Success has always been a great liar.
It is always the best policy to speak the truth, unless of course you are an exceptionally good liar.
Jerome K. Jerome
He who has not a good memory should never take upon himself the trade of lying.
Michel de Montaigne
We find it easy to believe that praise is sincere: why should anyone lie in telling us the truth?
Telling lies is a fault in a boy, an art in a lover, an accomplishment in a bachelor, and second nature in a married man.
There is something so beautiful in trust that even the most hardened liar needs feel a certain respect for those who confide in him.
Marie von Ebner-Eschenbach
Without lies humanity would perish of despair and boredom.
The false is nothing but an imitation of the true.
Marcus Tullius Cicero
History books that contain no lies are extremely tedious.
A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.
There are three kinds of lies: lies, damn lies and statistics.
Any fool can tell the truth, but it requires a man of some sense to know how to lie well.
Even a lie is a psychic fact.
Carl Gustav Jung
People need good lies. There are too many bad ones.
A liar is a man who does not know how to deceive, a flatterer one who deceives fools; he alone can pride himself on his cleverness who knows how to make skilful use of the truth.
Luc de Clapiers de Vauvenargues
If we suspect that a man is lying, we should pretend to believe him; for then he becomes bold and assured, lies more vigorously, and is unmasked.
The cruelest lies are often told in silence.
Robert Louis Stevenson
