Let lying dogs sleep is something I always say in reference to the Smiths.
Steven Patrick Morrissey
Anyone who claims to be good at lying is obviously bad at lying. Thus - as a writer myself - I cannot comment on whether or not writers are exceptionally good liars, because whatever I said would actually mean its complete opposite.
I don't thrive on stress. I love lying on the deck on our houseboat reading a book.
I prayed like a man walking in a forest at night, feeling his way with his hands, at each step fearing to fall into pure bottomlessness forever. Prayer is like lying awake at night, afraid, with your head under the cover, hearing only the beating of your own heart.
I don't like people lying to me. I don't like people who don't return my calls. I don't like people who won't give me a straight answer. I don't like those kinds of people, and I've been vocal about it.
I don't know about you, but I can tell when someone's lying. They can't look you in the eye - they look you in the bridge of your nose.
In the lead up to the Iraq war and its later conduct, I saw at a minimum, true dereliction, negligence and irresponsibility, at worse, lying, incompetence and corruption.
Music is the medium that has taken me around the world, and I would be lying if I said I could live without music.
With actors, all our ages are out there for all to see - you can't hide anything, really. And it's kind of a relief. This is my age, this is what I look like without makeup on - who cares? That youth culture - that lying about your age - it's all denial of death anyway.
Short naps are good. Given modern workplace demands, this is not possible for many people - but if you have the option, try napping for ten to twenty minutes in the afternoon, preferably lying down in a darkened room.
To me, horror is when I see somebody lying. I mean a person I know. A friend. And he's telling me something that I accept. And then suddenly, as he or she is telling it, there's something that gives them away. They're not telling me the truth.
I would rather be lying in a bed than changing one.
I'll tell you something that's completely true - you can, as a man, obtain everything you want with the truth. If you lie, first of all you've got to be a very good lying actor, which is tres difficile. And it's going to give you poison inside the body.
The best thing about lying in bed late is that you learn to distinguish between first things and trivia, for whatever presses on you has to prove its importance before it makes you move.
I found a great many pieces of punctuation and typography lying around dormant when I came along - and I must say I had a good time using them.
The trouble when you're doing something illegal is that you know what you're doing. You're lying to your parents, you're lying to your kids. The only person you can't lie to is yourself.
Acting is like lying. The art of lying well. I'm paid to tell elaborate lies.
Any actor or actress that tells you that they don't watch their stuff is lying.
You cannot 'rationalize' what is not rational to begin with - as if lying were called 'truthization.' There is no way to obtain more truth for a proposition by bribery, flattery, or the most passionate argument - you can make more people believe the proposition, but you cannot make it more true.
I started singing weddings and bar mitzvahs at 15, lying about my age. It was a great discipline.

John Harvey Kellogg

I don't see how you could get used to people screaming in your face, and anyone who says different is lying.
It's ridiculous, but it's horrible going bald. Anyone who says it isn't is lying.
All I've ever ended up with in terms of achievements is the movie, some really stupid anecdotes, a bunch of crosswords that I didn't finish and maybe some old bicycle that I found lying around on set.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
C. S. Lewis
