If you tell the truth, you don’t have to remember anything.
Buy a pup and your money will buy Love unflinching that cannot lie.
A harmful truth is better than a useful lie.
With any part you play, there is a certain amount of yourself in it. There has to be, otherwise it’s just not acting. It’s lying.
What we have to do, what at any rate it is our duty to do, is to revive this old art of Lying.
Truth at last cannot be hidden. Dissimulation is of no avail. Dissimulation is to no purpose before so great a judge. Falsehood puts on a mask. Nothing is hidden under the sun.
There are only two things. Truth and lies. Truth is indivisible, hence it cannot recognize itself; anyone who wants to recognize it has to be a lie.
The pride connected with knowing and sensing lies like a blinding fog over the eyes and senses of men, thus deceiving them concerning the value of existence.
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.
No easy hope or lies
Shall bring us to our goal,
But iron sacrifice
Of body, will, and soul.
Museums are just a lot of lies, and the people who make art their business are mostly imposters.
Lying, the telling of beautiful untrue things, is the proper aim of Art.
