The very concept of objective truth is fading out of the world. After all, the chances are that those lies, or at any rate similar lies, will pass into history.
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.
We are led to believe a lie, when we see not through the eye, which was born in a night to perish in a night, when the soul slept in beams of light.
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.[La verità al fine non si cela: non val simulazione. Simulazione è frustrata, avanti a tanto giudice. La bugìa mette maschera. Nulla occulta sotto il sole.]
