Truth exists. Only lies are invented.

Georges Braque

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

The hearts that it has broken, the lies that it has told...

When a man finds that it is his destiny to suffer, he will have to accept his suffering as his task; his single and unique task. He will have to acknowledge the fact that even in suffering he is unique and alone in the universe. No one can relieve him of his suffering or suffer in his place. His unique opportunity lies in the way in which he bears his burden.

Viktor E. Frankl

Is it more probable that nature should go out of her course or that a man should tell a lie? We have never seen, in our time, nature go out of her course. But we have good reason to believe that millions of lies have been told in the same time. It is therefore at least millions to one that the reporter of a miracle tells a lie.

Thomas Paine
