Lies - Quotes

 TimeFavorites

People think that a liar gains a victory over his victim. What I`ve learned is that a lie is an act of self-abdication, because one surrenders one`s reality to the person to whom one lies, making that person one`s master, condemning oneself from then on to faking the sort of reality that person`s view requires to be faked. [...] The man who lies to the world, is the world`s slave from then on.

Ayn Rand

Pride is the master-sin of the devil; and the devil is the father of lies.

Edwin Hubbell Chapin

A truth that`s told with bad intent
Beats all the lies you can invent.

William Blake

What is true is not to be decided by votes; otherwise, we could never come to any truth ever. People would vote for what is comfortable - and lies are very comfortable because you don’t have to do anything about them, you just have to believe... Truth needs great effort, discovery, risk, and to walk alone on a path which nobody has traveled before.

Osho

If there is any one secret of success, it lies in the ability to get the other person`s point of view and see things from that person`s angle as well as from your own.

Henry Ford

Parents can only give good advice or put them on the right paths, but the final forming of a person`s character lies in their own hands.

Anne Frank

At the heart of all beauty lies something inhuman.

Albert Camus

He lies who strove for high intent,
his own benumbed, unspeaking monument.
No tears can wake him now, no words, nor herbs or fungus,
who once upon a time dwelt here among us.

Dezső Kosztolányi

Lies and love rarely went together, and never for long.

Stephen King

What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared what lies within us.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Greatness inspires envy, envy engenders spite, spite spawns lies.

J. K. Rowling
