A fact never went into partnership with a miracle. Truth scorns the assistance of wonders. A fact will fit every other fact in the universe, and that is how you can tell whether it is or is not a fact. A lie will not fit anything except another lie.
Robert Green Ingersoll
A lie does not consist in the indirect position of words, but in the desire and intention, by false speaking, to deceive and injure your neighbour.
Jonathan Swift
A lie is an excuse guarded
Jonathan Swift
A truth that's told with bad intent beats all the lies you can invent.
William Blake
All the art of living lies in a fine mingling of letting go and holding on.
Havelock Ellis
Beats all the lies you can invent.
William Blake
Champagne, if you are seeking the truth, is better than a lie detector. It encourages a man to be expansive, even reckless, while lie detectors are only a challenge to tell lies successfully.
Graham Greene
Great liars are also great magicians
Adolf Hitler
I am a lie who always speaks the truth.
Jean Cocteau
I'm not smart enough to lie
Ronald Reagan
If one is to be called a liar, one may as well make an effort to deserve the name.
A. A. Milne
If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed
Adolf Hitler

William Shakespeare
In forming a judgment, lay your hearts void of foretoken opinions; else, whatsoever is done or said will be measured by a wrong rule; like them who have the jaundice, to whom everything appears yellow
Philip Sidney
It takes little talent to see what lies under one's nose, a good deal to know in what direction to point that organ.
W. H. Auden
It was, of course, a lie what you read about my religious convictions, a lie which is being systematically repeated. I do not believe in a personal God and I have never denied this but have expressed it clearly. If something is in me which can be called religious then it is the unbounded admiration for the structure of the world so far as our science can reveal it.
Albert Einstein
Lies are essential to humanity. They are perhaps as important as the pursuit of pleasure and moreover are dictated by that pursuit.
Marcel Proust
Lying in bed would be an altogether perfect and supreme experience if only one had a colored pencil long enough to draw on the ceiling.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
Lying rides upon debt's back.
Benjamin Franklin
Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it
Adolf Hitler
