It is hard to believe that a man is telling the truth when you know that you would lie if you were in his place.
H. L. Mencken
We must take positions. Our weakness in the West is born of the fact of so-called 'objectivity.' Objectivity does not exist - it cannot exist!... The word is a hypocrisy which is sustained by the lie that the truth stays in the middle. No, sir: Sometimes truth stays on one side only.
If evil be spoken of you and it be true, correct yourself, if it be a lie, laugh at it.
People who lie to themselves about investing are the same as overweight people who blame their genes for their obesity.
You get tough when you grow up unloved. People described me as a boyish girl - rather shy, but I didn't show it. I had an attitude. I was rather wild. I lied a lot because I knew the alternative was to be punished. As I got older I realised I didn't have to lie any more and it was a nice feeling. I could be myself.
Part of my preparation is I go and ask the kit man what colour we're wearing - if it's red top, white shorts, white socks or black socks. Then I lie in bed the night before the game and visualise myself scoring goals or doing well.
Ali's got a left, Ali's got a right - when he knocks you down, you'll sleep for the night; and when you lie on the floor and the ref counts to ten, hope and pray that you never meet me again.
You're not drunk if you can lie on the floor without holding on.
I never want to lie about my age. If I look around at the actresses I admire, they are all women who have not fought growing older, but embraced it and been proud of it - women like Sophia Loren or Audrey Hepburn.
Our future cannot depend on the government alone. The ultimate solutions lie in the attitudes and the actions of the American people.
Violence can only be concealed by a lie, and the lie can only be maintained by violence.
People are so docile right now. It is almost as if good government means when the politicians lie to us for our own good, for the public good, and bad government is when politicians lie for their own selfish interests.
As you submit to God more and more, you will get accustomed to being nourished by the power of truth. He is so holy that He cannot lie. God reveals His truth to His people through the Holy Spirit.
The very spring and root of honesty and virtue lie in good education.
I could lie and say my wife cooks for me, but she doesn't. My wife has never learnt cooking but she has great cooks at home.
Shah Rukh Khan
I pefer an ugly truth to a pretty lie. If someone is telling me the truth that is when I will give my heart.
Justice is rather the activity of truth, than a virtue in itself. Truth tells us what is due to others, and justice renders that due. Injustice is acting a lie.
I never lie. I believe everything I say, so it's not a lie.
Someone who knows too much finds it hard not to lie.
The immense cities lie basking on the beaches of the continent like whales that have taken to the land.
Arnold J. Toynbee
The idea that murder victims' families are best served by continuing the cycle of violence is something that I consider to be not only a lie, but criminally negligent. You lie to victims' families when you tell them they're going to receive closure if they participate in the process and witness the execution of a human being.
If you tell a lie to make a person better, then that is not a sin.
Sun Myung Moon
Let me say this loud and clear. There is a world of difference between terrorist acts and the Islamic Shari'a. Islam is not only a religion, but a way of life. And at its heart lie the sacred principles of tolerance and dialogue.
King Hussein I
It is better to take what does not belong to you than to let it lie around neglected.
Why lie? I'm not going to be a hypocrite and say the opposite of what I think, like some others do.
John F. Kennedy
Martin Luther King, Jr.
