lies

It’s just that sometimes we make things up just to talk.

Jonathan Safran Foer, Everything is Illuminated

And there lies the horror: the past we remember is devoid of time. Impossible to reexperience a love the way we reread a book or resee a film.

Milan Kundera, Ignorance

Every day is a lie. But you are dying. That is not a lie.

The Road, Cormac McCarthy

Lies require commitment.

Veronica Roth, Divergent

Lies are neither bad nor good. Like a fire they can either keep you warm or burn you to death, depending on how they’re used.

Max Brooks, World War Z

The worst lies we tell are out of love.

Gillian Foster, Lie To Me

Bride’s pretending she’s a virgin. The groom’s pretending he’s found “The One”. And the in-laws pretend they like each other. It’s Christmas for liars.

Cal Lightman, Lie To Me

Statistically speaking, the average person tells three lies per ten minutes conversation. And granted, just regular people. We haven’t studied people planning to fire-bomb a black church. Could skew differently.

Cal Lightman, Lie To Me

Truth is beautiful, without doubt; but so are lies.

Ralph Waldo Emerson
