A lie can travel halfway around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes.
Keith Waterhouse, Penguin
Sometimes it's easier to lie to yourself than face the truth.
Be careful with your words. Once they are said, they can only be forgiven, not forgotten.
The truth may hurt for a little while, but a lie hurts forever.
When you try to deceive others, you only end up deceiving yourself.
The biggest lies are often the ones we tell ourselves.
Hiding the truth doesn't make it disappear; it only makes it harder to find.
Honesty may not always be easy, but it's always worth it.
Telling the truth is like setting yourself free from the chains of deception.
The more you lie, the more you lose touch with who you truly are.
