“That a lie which is all a lie may be met and fought with outright truth but a lie which is part a truth is a harder matter to fight.”
-Alfred Tennyson


Building trust is like building a tower, stone by stone. But no matter how high or strong the tower seems, if you remove a stone from the bottom the tower will collapse. Lying destroys the foundation needed for trust.
-Michael Josephson


“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.”
-Hannah Arendt


"Whoever is careless with the truth in small matters cannot be trusted with important matters."
-Albert Einstein


“Lying is done with words and also with silence.”
Adrienne Rich


“A half-truth is a whole lie.”
-Yiddish Proverb


“A truth that’s told with bad intent, beats all the lies you can invent.”
William Blake


“Lying is a sin destructive to society; for there is no trade where there is no trust, and there is no trust where there is no truth.”
-Wellins Calcott
