Lies beget other lies. Unlike statements of fact, which require no further work on our part, lies must be continually protected from collisions with reality.

Truth hurts, but in the long run it’s better than a pat on the back.

Paul Arden

When I sit down to write a book, I do not say to myself, `I am going to produce a work of art`. I write it because there is some lie that I want to expose, some fact to which I want to draw attention, and my initial concern is to get a hearing.

George Orwell
