Quote of the Day
Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer's day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.
Music doesn't lie. If there is something to be changed in this world, then it can only happen through music.
Summer is the annual permission slip to be lazy. To do nothing and have it count for something. To lie in the grass and count the stars. To sit on a branch and study the clouds.

Your intellect may be confused, but your emotions will never lie to you.
The sea does not reward those who are too anxious, too greedy, or too impatient. One should lie empty, open, choiceless as a beach - waiting for a gift from the sea.
Anne Morrow Lindbergh
One of Satan's most deceptive and powerful ways of defeating us is to get us to believe a lie. And the biggest lie is that there are no consequences to our own doing. Satan will give you whatever you ask for if it will lead you where he ultimately wants you.
The roots of racism lie deep in man's nature, wounded and bruised by original sin.
I believe that it is better to tell the truth than a lie. I believe it is better to be free than to be a slave. And I believe it is better to know than to be ignorant.
H. L. Mencken
Men are liars. We'll lie about lying if we have to. I'm an algebra liar. I figure two good lies make a positive.

I find the great thing in this world is not so much where we stand, as in what direction we are moving: To reach the port of heaven, we must sail sometimes with the wind and sometimes against it - but we must sail, and not drift, nor lie at anchor.
Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr.
If we went by the world's definition of who I'm supposed to be because I look weird... 'Well, surely, this guy can't have a productive life, surely, he doesn't have a sense of humor. Surely, he can't love life.' We stereotype people in this world. And so... if the world thinks you're not good enough, it's a lie, you know. Get a second opinion.
Animals don't lie. Animals don't criticize. If animals have moody days, they handle them better than humans do.
Little white lies are part of everyday life. If you're in court being charged with a felony, you're probably going to be tempted to lie.

There are different reasons and justifications to lie; it's human nature.
Why lie? I'm not going to be a hypocrite and say the opposite of what I think, like some others do.

King Hussein I

I'm 0 for 3 with marriage - the scoreboard doesn't lie, never has. So what we all have is a marriage of the heart. To sully or contaminate or radically disrespect this union with a shameful contract is something that I will leave to the amateurs and the Bible grippers.
A single lie destroys a whole reputation of integrity.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
C. S. Lewis
