A lie is just the truth waiting to be itself.
- Terri Guillemets
The trouble with lying and deceiving is that their efficiency depends entirely upon a clear notion of the truth that the liar and deceiver wishes to hide. In this sense, truth, even if it does not prevail in public, possesses an ineradicable primacy over all falsehoods.
- Hannah Arendt
I never lie because I don't fear anyone. You only lie when you're afraid.
- John Gotti
Half of the people lie with their lips; the other half with their tears.
- Nassim Nicholas Taleb
I am a lie who always speaks the truth.
- Jean Cocteau
The only thing worse than a liar is a liar that's also a hypocrite!

- Robert Brault
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
A liar lies to himself as well as to the gods. Lying is the origin of all evils; it leads to rebirth in the miserable planes of existence, to breach of the pure precepts, and to corruption of the body.
- Maharatnakuta Sutra 27
Hiding how you really feel and trying to make everyone happy doesn't make you nice, it just makes you a liar.
