One tells as few lies as possible only by telling as few lies as possible, and not by having the least possible opportunity to do so. - Franz Kafka (Dearest Father: Stories and Other Writings Quotes)

One tells as few lies as possible only by telling as few lies as possible, and not by having the least possible opportunity to do so.[Man lügt möglichst wenig, nur wenn man möglichst wenig lügt, nicht wenn man möglichst wenig Gelegenheit dazu hat.]
