Falsehood Quotations

Racism springs from the lie that certain human beings are less than fully human. It's a self-centered falsehood that corrupts our minds into believing we are right to treat others as we would not want to be treated.
Alveda King

A liar begins with making falsehood appear like truth, and ends with making truth itself appear like falsehood.
William Shenstone
