Lies And Lying Quotes


Lies and lying quotes often imply that human kind often has very little control over the lies we compulsively tell. They also warn of the repercussions of lying. “A good memory is needed once we have lied”, was wryly observed by the famed French “father of tragedy” Pierre Corneille, who penned many astute observations in his 40 prolific years as a playwright in the early 1600s. Lies and Lying quotes seem to withstand the test of time; certainly, what comes out of the mouths of politicians 400 years ago and today seems to hold about the same amount of water.
