Lies I Told Myself

About Lies

My mother (and Samuel Clemens) always said: "If you don't lie, you never have to remember anything..."
I've found a selection of quotes about lies I enjoyed; from Albert Einstein to Marilyn Monroe.
I hope you enjoy them too:

The Truth with a capital T; The truth may be out there.

“The truth may be out there, but the lies are inside your head.” » Terry Pratchett

“A lie can travel halfway around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes.” » Mark Twain

“Lies run sprints, but the truth runs marathons.” » Michael Jackson

"Tell the truth boldly, whether it hurts or not. Never pander to weakness. If truth is too much for intelligent people and sweeps them away, let them go; the sooner the better.” » Swami Vivekananda

“Those who cry the loudest are not always the ones who are hurt the most.” » Aesop

“Anyone who doesn’t take truth seriously in small matters cannot be trusted in large ones either.” » Albert Einstein

“Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth.” » Oscar Wilde

“If you ever injected truth into politics you would have no politics.” » Will Rogers

“Truth suffers from too much analysis.” » Frank Herbert

“Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth.” » Marcus Aurelius

“If you don’t want to slip up tomorrow, speak the truth today.” » Bruce Lee

“The truth is not for all men but only for those who seek it.” » Ayn Rand

“The trust of the innocent is the liar’s most useful tool.” » Stephen King

“A lie told often enough becomes the truth.” » Vladimir Lenin

“The purpose of argument is to change the nature of truth.” » Frank Herbert

“If you’re going to be two-faced at least make one of them pretty.” » Marilyn Monroe

The Biggest Lies

"...when I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things..."

The Top Four Lies
My Substance Abusing, Addicted,
Alcoholic Friends
and I Share!

Big lie number one will get the officer to make you do stupid human tricks every time. You're better off to show him all your AA chips and say "I don't drink". It's a lie too.

Lie number two is one of those lies I tell myself. If you're so sure, give it a try some time. If you can't go a week without a drink, you might want to check the truth meter

Lie number three is another lie I tell myself. I don't think I've ever had ONE beer. Maybe one PITCHER, or more like ten beers, but one? Never. It's well, frankly, a lie.

Lie number four is not one we tell ourselves, but that has been told to us. Every time I pick up a glass (or a bottle) it contains a magic elixir concocted by my non-existent friend...

  • Big Lie #1

    But officer, all I had was two beers..

  • Big Lie #2

    I can quit any time I want...

  • Big lie #3

    C'mon, we'll just have ONE beer...

  • Big Lie #4

    The greatest lie the devil ever pulled: I don't exist...
