LIE not; but let thy heart be true to God,
Thy mouth to it, thy actions to them both:
Cowards tell lies, and those that fear the rod;
The stormy-working soul spits lies and froth.
Dare to be true. Nothing can need a lie;
A fault, which needs it most, grows two thereby.
George Herbert


THE cruellest lies are often told in silence. A man may have sat in a room for hours and not opened his teeth, and yet, come out of that room a disloyal friend or a vile calumniator.
Robert Louis Stevenson


HALF truths are often more calumnious than whole falsehoods. It is not even necessary that a word should be distinctly uttered; a dropped lip, an arched eyebrow; a shrugged shoulder, a significant look, an incredulous expression of countenance, nay, even an emphatic silence, may do the work.
Frederick W. Robertson


IT is false piety to keep peace at the expense of truth; and it is also false zeal to keep truth while wounding charity.
Blaise Pascal
