People think that a liar gains a victory over his victim.
What I’ve learned is that a lie is an act of self-abdication,
because one surrenders one’s reality to the person to whom one lies,
making that person one’s master, condemning oneself from then on
to faking the sort of reality that person’s view requires to be faked…
The man who lies to the world, is the world’s slave from then on…
In a time of deceit telling the truth is a revolutionary act.
Men occasionally stumble over the truth,
but most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing ever happened.
Winston S. Churchill
Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored.
There are some things one remembers even though they may never have happened.
A lie can travel half way around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes.
