If you tell the truth you don’t have to remember anything. ~Mark Twain

Who lies for you will lie against you. ~Bosnian Proverb

No man has a good enough memory to make a successful liar. ~Abraham Lincoln

Make yourself an honest man, and then you may be sure there is one less rascal in the world. ~Thomas Carlyle

A half truth is a whole lie. ~Yiddish Proverb

A lie will easily get you out of a scrape, and yet, strangely and beautifully, rapture possesses you when you have taken the scrape and left out the lie. ~Charles Edward Montague, Disenchantment

Those who think it is permissible to tell white lies soon grow color-blind. ~Austin O’Malley

A truth that’s told with bad intent beats all the lies you can invent. ~William Blake, “Auguries of Innocence,” Poems from the Pickering Manuscript

    My favorite is “a half truth is a whole lie”.

    I have encountered so many of these in the last week or two and when I find someone who can be wholeheartedly honest with me, well I grab on to them. Umm.. you’re kinda stuck with me. Too bad!

    Great topic Toni! These are all great quotes. I had not heard of this one and do so like it: Who lies for you will lie against you. ~Bosnian Proverb
