Top Truth and Lies Quotes from TV Shows

We often find ourselves in situations when we have to choose between truth and a lie. Although the choice should be easy, that is not always the case.

The truth is the right path, and it is always welcome, but sometimes lies can seem necessary. In some circumstances, you may choose to tell a small lie to prevent someone from worrying unnecessarily, or becoming sad.

If you have to lie, even for good intentions, you must be careful because one lie usually demands more lies to cover-up.

Below is a collection of TV series quotes that will give you more insight about truth and lies.
