Believing: it means believing in our own lies. And I can say that I am grateful that I got this lesson very early.
Acting is like lying. The art of lying well. I'm paid to tell elaborate lies.
The starting point for understanding the deterioration in the relationship between the U.S. and Russia lies in Washington rather than Moscow. After 1989, Russia was a defeated power. Despite the fine words and some limited gestures, the Americans have treated it like one. Their policy has been one of encirclement.
And if there's any hope for America, it lies in a revolution, and if there's any hope for a revolution in America, it lies in getting Elvis Presley to become Che Guevara.
The Internet is probably the most important technological advancement of my lifetime. Its strength lies in its open architecture and its ability to allow a framework where all voices can be heard.
Keep up appearances; there lies the test. The world will give thee credit for the rest.
I deeply detest social distinction and snobbery, and in that lies my strong aversion to titular honours.
Words that are saturated with lies or atrocity, do not easily resume life.
What does the truth matter? Haven't we mothers all given our sons a taste for lies, lies which from the cradle upwards lull them, reassure them, send them to sleep: lies as soft and warm as a breast!

Madeleine M. Kunin

Ah, to think how thin the veil that lies Between the pain of hell and Paradise.
George William Russell
In moderating, not satisfying desires, lies peace.
Let's use our stories to encourage listening to one another and to hear not just the good news, but also the pain that lies at the back of a lot of people's stories and histories.
My zombies will never take over the world because I need the humans. The humans are the ones I dislike the most, and they're where the trouble really lies.
George A. Romero
Man should forget his anger before he lies down to sleep.
Thomas de Quincey

My only true harmony lies deep within my soul, wherever that is. I know that somehow I am in tune with the universe.
When a Cabinet Minister who is sacked for telling lies is re-appointed, in the face of every constitutional convention, only for the same man to be sacked again from the same Cabinet for the same offence by the same Prime Minister no wonder the public are cynical about politics.
The beauty of our democracy lies in the American value of equality: if you vote, you have a seat at the table. If you speak, you have a chance to persuade others. A billionaire and a minimum wage earner have the same power at the ballot box.
I'm a country singer. I love all kinds of music, but country is where my loyalty lies. That's just me and what I do, and I'm not going to change it.
To look back all the time is boring. Excitement lies in tomorrow.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
