Deception quotes by Marina & The Diamonds
#1. Homewrecker"

Every boyfriend is the one
Until otherwise proven
The good are never easy
The easy never good
And love it never happens like you think it really should

Deception and perfection are wonderful traits
One will breed love
The other hate
You'll find me in the lonely hearts
Under 'I'm after a brand new start'

And I don't belong to anyone

They call me Homewrecker
Homewrecker
They call me Homewrecker
Homewrecker

Girls and their curls and their gourmet vomit
Boys and their toys and their six inch rockets
We're all very lovely 'til we get to know each other
As we stop becoming friends and we start becoming lovers

And I don't belong to anyone

They call me Homewrecker
Homewrecker (I'm only happy when I'm on the run)
They call me Homewrecker
Homewrecker (I broke a million hearts just for fun)
They call me Homewrecker
Homewrecker (I'm only happy when I'm on the run)
They call me Homewrecker
Homewrecker (I broke a million hearts just for fun)

I'm only happy when I'm on the run
I break a million hearts just for fun
I don't belong to anyone

I guess you could say that my life's a mess
But I'm still looking pretty in this dress
I'm the image of deception

When everything is life and death
You may feel like there's nothing left
Instead of love #Quote by Marina & The Diamonds
Deception quotes by Lydia Davis
#2. The fact that he does not tell me the truth all the time makes me not sure of his truth at certain times, and then I work to figure out for myself if what he is telling me is the truth or not, and sometimes I can figure out that it's not the truth and sometimes I don't know and never know, and sometimes just because he says it to me over and over again I am convinced it is the truth because I don't believe he would repeat a lie so often. Maybe the truth does not matter, but I want to know it if only so that I can come to some conclusions about such questions as: whether he is angry at me or not; if he is, then how angry; whether he still loves her or not; if he does, then how much; whether he loves me or not; how much; how capable he is of deceiving me in the act and after the act in the telling. #Quote by Lydia Davis
Deception quotes by Jonathan Glover
#3. The humiliating climbdown, the necessary deception, and stepping over one's pride: they should each have their honoured place in a modern account of the political virtues. #Quote by Jonathan Glover
Deception quotes by Melanie Joy
#4. Becoming aware of the intense suffering of billions of animals, and of our own participation in that suffering, can bring up painful emotions: sorrow and grief for the animals; anger at the injustice and deception of the system; despair at the enormity of the problem; fear that trusted authorities and institutions are, in fact, untrustworthy; and guilt for having contributed to the problem. Bearing witness means choosing to suffer. Indeed, empathy is literally 'feeling with.' Choosing to suffer is particularly difficult in a culture that is addicted to comfort
a culture that teaches that pain should be avoided whenever possible and that ignorance is bliss. We can reduce our resistance to witnessing by valuing authenticity over personal pleasure, and integration over ignorance. #Quote by Melanie Joy
Deception quotes by David Platt
#5. Spiritual deception is dangerous -and damning. #Quote by David Platt
Deception quotes by Virginia Alison
#6. All women are lifelong members of the Secret Service...So, if you must lie, better make sure you cover your tracks because there is no such thing as a 'dumb blonde'... #Quote by Virginia Alison
Deception quotes by Richard M. Rorty
#7. For James, disgust with American hypocrisy and self-deception was pointless unless accompanied by an effort to give America reason to be proud of itself in the future. The kind of proto-Heideggerian cultural pessimism which Adams cultivated seemed, to James, decadent and cowardly. #Quote by Richard M. Rorty
Deception quotes by Peter Watts
#8. There are no meaningful translations for these terms. They are needlessly recursive. They contain no usable intelligence, yet they are structured intelligently; there is no chance they could have arisen by chance. The only explanation is that something has coded nonsense in a way that poses as a useful message; only after wasting time and effort does the deception becomes apparent. The signal functions to consume the resources of a recipient for zero payoff and reduced fitness. The signal is a virus. Viruses do not arise from kin, symbionts, or other allies. The signal is an attack. #Quote by Peter Watts
Deception quotes by Kevin DeYoung
#9. The biggest deception of our digital age may be the lie that says we can be omni-competent, omni-informed, and omni-present. We cannot be any of these things. We must choose our absence, our inability, and our ignorance - and choose wisely. #Quote by Kevin DeYoung
Deception quotes by Marshall McLuhan
#10. Today the tyrant rules not by club or fist, but disguised as a market researcher, he shepherds his flocks in the ways of utility and comfort. #Quote by Marshall McLuhan
Deception quotes by Katie Klein
#11. The more lies you tell the more stories you have to remember. #Quote by Katie Klein
Deception quotes by Honore De Balzac
#12. Alas! Where love is concerned, self-interested deception is superior to the truth itself, which is why so many men pay so high a price to clever deceivers. #Quote by Honore De Balzac
Deception quotes by Mark Schatzker
#13. Can these foods [low-fat, vitamin-enriched, etc] even be called "healthy"? Perhaps we should think about it this way: If you cut a batch of pharmaceutical-grade cocaine with chai, you could say with some degree of honesty that it is "healthier," "less addictive," and "now with chai!" But would you say it's "good for you"? #Quote by Mark Schatzker
Deception quotes by Karl Ove Knausgaard
#14. For that's how it is, we cover up our mistakes and failings, we invent stories that put ourselves in a more favorable light. Self-deception is perhaps the most human thing of all. #Quote by Karl Ove Knausgaard
Deception quotes by Kris Waldherr
#15. OUT OF THE MOUTHS OF BABES
It is a pity that we often succeed in our endeavors to deceive each other.
~Empress Irene~ #Quote by Kris Waldherr
Deception quotes by John Irving
#16. You bet I write disaster fiction. We have compiled a disastrous record on this planet, a record of stupidity and absurdity and self-abuse and self-aggrandizement and self-deception and pompousness and self-righteousness and cruelty and indifference beyond what any other species has demonstrated the capacity for, which is the capacity for all the above. #Quote by John Irving
Deception quotes by T. S. Eliot
#17. What was to be the value of the long looked forward to,
Long hoped for calm, the autumnal serenity
And the wisdom of age? Had they deceived us
Or deceived themselves, the quiet-voiced elders,
Bequeathing us merely a receipt for deceit?
The serenity only a deliberate hebetude,
The wisdom only the knowledge of dead secrets
Useless in the darkness into which they peered
Or from which they turned their eyes. There is, it seems to us,
At best, only a limited value
In the knowledge derived from experience.
The knowledge imposes a pattern, and falsifies,
For the pattern is new in every moment
And every moment is a new and shocking
Valuation of all we have been. We are only undeceived
Of that which, deceiving, could no longer harm. #Quote by T. S. Eliot
Deception quotes by S.E. Hinton
#18. I lie to myself all the time. But I never believe me. #Quote by S.E. Hinton
Deception quotes by Phoebe Cary
#19. For of all hard things to bear and grin, / The hardest is knowing you're taken in. #Quote by Phoebe Cary
Deception quotes by James F. Cooper
#20. The demagogue is usually sly, a detractor of others, a professor of humility and disinterestedness, a great stickler for equality as respects all above him, a man who acts in corners, and avoids open and manly expositions of his course, calls blackguards gentlemen, and gentlemen folks, appeals to passions and prejudices rather than to reason, and is in all respects, a man of intrigue and deception, of sly cunning and management. #Quote by James F. Cooper
Deception quotes by Nawal El Saadawi
#21. Men impose deception on women and punish them for being deceived, force them down to the lowest level and punish them for falling so low, bind them in marriage and then chastise them with menial service for life, or insults, or blows. #Quote by Nawal El Saadawi
Deception quotes by Christopher Hawke
#22. There are casualties in war. Those who don't make it back to a place of sound hopes and dreams. Some take on their demons alone. They are deceived into fearlessness and trampled by the hooves of their oppressor.
Besides intervention, there is little justice for the thousands-upon-thousands hacked to pieces all around us.
How dare we try to take life to the next level. Instead of merely protecting ourselves or scrounging up our next meal, we have the audacity to hope for something more - a witness for our lives who will survive alongside us. #Quote by Christopher Hawke
Deception quotes by Erich Maria Remarque
#23. Sweet words. Gentle deceptive balm. Help, love, to belong together, to come back again - words, sweet words. Nothing but words. How many words existed for this simple, wild, cruel attraction of two bodies! What a rainbow of imagination, lies, sentiment, and self-deception enclosed it! #Quote by Erich Maria Remarque
Deception quotes by Beryl Dov
#24. Politics 1.1 [10w]
Steal the high moral ground from your opposition by deception. #Quote by Beryl Dov
Deception quotes by Walel Watson
#25. Once the doors close there can be no lie or deception and the lights will tell all! #Quote by Walel Watson
Deception quotes by Marty Rubin
#26. I'm not the person I used to be. I never was. #Quote by Marty Rubin
Deception quotes by Chris Cogan
#27. Reality blithely ignores the lies we tell ourselves about it. #Quote by Chris Cogan
Deception quotes by Ernest Hemingway,
#28. The purple, formalized, iridescent, gelatinous bladder of a Portuguese man-of-war was floating close beside the boat. It turned on its side and then righted itself. It floated cheerfully as a bubble with its long deadly purple filaments trailing a yard behind in the water. #Quote by Ernest Hemingway,
Deception quotes by Anna C. Salter
#29. But in any case, validity, offender self-reports have dubious validity, especially when the offender's self-interest is at stake. The only rule for deception in sex offenders I have ever found is this: If it is in the offender's best interests to lie, and if he can do it and not get caught, he will lie.
Being victimized as a child has become a ready excuse for perpetrating child molestation. The offender who claims he himself was victimized gets seen as less of a "monster" than one who wasn't a victim, and he gains much more empathy and support. It is hard to trust self-reports of sex offenders about abuse in their past when such reports are in their best interest.
Only a few studies on this topic have used objective measures, and they have found very different results.[102] #Quote by Anna C. Salter
Deception quotes by J. Aleksandr Wootton
#30. Just because you believe in fairies doesn't mean you have to believe everything they say!
-Petra Godfellow #Quote by J. Aleksandr Wootton
Deception quotes by Antonio Porchia
#31. Everything had been stripped of deceptions, that time. And that time I was afraid of everything. #Quote by Antonio Porchia
Deception quotes by Greg Bear
#32. Oh, there will still be deception. The fresh crew will emerge as adults, will have memories of past training and lives. Our stories, our lives, will go on. I refuse to allow that love to die, just because it was never real. #Quote by Greg Bear
Deception quotes by Rebecca Manley Pippert
#33. We tend to be taken aback by the thought that God could be angry. how can a deity who is perfect and loving ever be angry? ... We take pride in our tolerance of the excesses of others. So what is God's problem? ... But love detests what destroys the beloved. Real love stands against the deception, the lie, the sin that destroys. Nearly a century ago the theologian E.H. Glifford wrote: 'Human love here offers a true analogy: the more a father loves his son, the more he hates in him the drunkard, the liar, the traitor.' ... Anger isn't the opposite of love. Hate is, and the final form of hate is indifference ... How can a good God forgive bad people without compromising himself? Does he just play fast and loose with the facts? 'Oh, never mind ... boys will be boys'. Try telling that to a survivor of the Cambodian 'killing fields' or to someone who lost an entire family in the Holocaust. No. To be truly good one has to be outraged by evil and implacably hostile to injustice. #Quote by Rebecca Manley Pippert
Deception quotes by Charles R. Swindoll
#34. Wisdom is looking at life from God's point of view. You look at life's difficulties and tests as God looks at them. You look at family life and child rearing as God looks at them. You interpret current events as God would interpret them. You see the truth even though all around you are deception and lies. #Quote by Charles R. Swindoll
Deception quotes by Batuhan Ibal
#35. Ignorance is a bliss. One does not simply believe everything they see on the Internet. If an individual has full swag control and mastery of the deception of swag, one could have easily seen through this 'troll'. This is why learning the basic 4 swag principles and mastering them is extremely necessary. Basically, one must AT least master the 4 elements of swag in order to see through deception and perceive where the swag count energy is being emitted from. this state of mind is not common, but it is essential for right thinking , where it is absent, discussion is adapted to become worse than useless.
My title as 'Man of Swag' can never be replaced. I am Swag #Quote by Batuhan Ibal
Deception quotes by Zoe Marriott
#36. How much easier life was once you learned how to lie. I had gotten into trouble by speaking out of turn, arguing and answering back so many times. Not anymore. Now I would do what I wanted, and no one would stop me. #Quote by Zoe Marriott
Deception quotes by Rembrandt
#37. Sincerity is the eventual deception of all great men. #Quote by Rembrandt
Deception quotes by Michel De Montaigne
#38. The human face is a weak guarantee; yet it deserves some consideration. And if I had to whip the wicked, I would do so more severely to those who belied and betrayed the promises that nature had implanted on their brows; I would punish malice more harshly when it was hidden under a kindly appearance. #Quote by Michel De Montaigne
Deception quotes by Evita Ochel
#39. Until you realize how easily it is for your mind to be manipulated, you remain the puppet of someone else's game. #Quote by Evita Ochel
Deception quotes by Iain Macleod Higgins
#40. one might argue that the Mandeville author's original deception was not a simple trick for its own sake, but rather that it allowed him the freedom to speak his mind in a society that did not encourage such expression: to critique the moral state of his fellow Christians through an unusually open-minded presentation of the sectarian Christian and non-Christian world beyond Latin Christendom,2 an open-mindedness extended to nearly every group except the Jews and some nomads like the Bedouins. If so, the deception can be considered akin to the sort of literary device used by his near contemporary, William Langland, who, to obtain similar critical freedom, couched his impassioned critique of Christendom in an allegorical dream vision called Piers Plowman (five of whose some fifty surviving copies are bound with TBJM, suggesting that they have concerns in common).3 #Quote by Iain Macleod Higgins
Deception quotes by Marty Rubin
#41. Man is the most irrational of beings, because his imagination is always deceiving him about reality. #Quote by Marty Rubin
Deception quotes by Suzanne Finnamore
#42. I feel incendiary, a wildfire. My spirit licks at the gates of a very elaborate, customized, and distracting emotional Hades. #Quote by Suzanne Finnamore
Deception quotes by R.D. Ronald
#43. He had an intrusive gaze and quietly confident manner, that seemed to strip away the layers of protective deception Scott would usually adopt around strangers. #Quote by R.D. Ronald
Deception quotes by Bianca Scardoni
#44. The most dangerous enemy is not the one who lingers behind you in the shadows, but the one who walks beside you as a friend. #Quote by Bianca Scardoni
Deception quotes by Maria Karvouni
#45. Curses to the crooked, to the liars and to the immoral people, because only truth must triumph. #Quote by Maria Karvouni
Deception quotes by Alice Munro
#46. She would have said that love was hocus-pocus, a deception, and she believed that. But at the prospect she still felt a hush, a flutter along the nerves, a bowing down of sense, a flagrant postration #Quote by Alice Munro
Deception quotes by C. JoyBell C.
#47. We are all tricked. We think that religion tells us what to believe; but it doesn't, it is telling us what not to believe. Atheism is not the absence of religion; atheism is the most undiluted form of religion: it tells us not to believe in anything at all. Atheists hate the religious and the religious hate atheists, but this is only a deception! We are all deceived! There is only one boat and we are all in it! All at the same time! #Quote by C. JoyBell C.
Deception quotes by D.R. Cozen
#48. Man's unconscious believes that it must use deception and self-deception to allow the conscious mind to survive and justify itself within our material realm. To do this it must eliminate vast amounts of information form man's conscious mind. Deception and self-deception are the methods it uses to eliminate this information. #Quote by D.R. Cozen
Deception quotes by Lord Chesterfield
#49. Without some dissimulation no business can be carried on at all. #Quote by Lord Chesterfield
Deception quotes by John Irving
#50. For a terrible time of life a teen-ager deceives himself; he believes he can trick the world. He believes he is invulnerable. An adolescent who is an orphan at this phase is in danger of never growing up. #Quote by John Irving
Deception quotes by Khaled Hosseini
#51. Writing fiction is the act of weaving a series of lies to arrive at a greater truth. #Quote by Khaled Hosseini
Deception quotes by Bell Hooks
#52. Trusting that another person always intends your good, having a core foundation of loving practice, cannot exist within a context of deception. #Quote by Bell Hooks
Deception quotes by Cambria Hebert
#53. The snow was endless, a heavy blanket on the outdoors; it had a way about it. A beauty. But I knew that, like many things, beauty could be deceiving. #Quote by Cambria Hebert
Deception quotes by Alison   Miller
#54. Some survivors have found small metallic "implants" in their teeth or ears, and believe these were designed to monitor their location or to broadcast their words or thoughts to the abusers. Such technology has been developed recently for keeping task of animals or persons with dementia.
But to what extent it was used years ago by mind controllers is unknown at this point. At least some of it may be similar to the "bombs" in the stomach, a trick to convince survivors that their abusers monitor them continuously. The presence of an object does not mean it is capable of collecting complex information and sending it back to abusers, or even sending them signals, for twenty or more years as some survivors believe. As with other apparently bizarre beliefs of our survivor clients, we must acknowledge that something happened, and remain open both to the possibility that there was such technology and the possibility that it is yet another deception to convince survivors they cannot escape the grip of their abusers.
p205 #Quote by Alison Miller
Deception quotes by Friedrich August Von Hayek
#55. The history of government management of money has, except for a few short happy periods, been one of incessant fraud and deception. #Quote by Friedrich August Von Hayek
Deception quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#56. The biggest awakening is the awakening from the childish deceptions and the invented tales of the religion. #Quote by Mehmet Murat Ildan
Deception quotes by Angelica Hopes
#57. Security means the state of being free from danger or threat.

Danger means the possibility of suffering harm or injury. The possibility of something unwelcome or unpleasant happening.

There are times I have to stress as I express the correct, precise, real and honest definitions; so that the deceptive, politically motivated folks who destructively branded me as "threat to danger" would realise their double denial duplicity, dishonesty and hypocrisy.

Have you at least questioned the personal motives and faulty malicious and intentional misjudgment or at least be honestly curious to discern the motive of a cunning person who warns you against another as a danger, a threat or a risk to life or security?

Did the political harridan mean political threat to her political coalition or a danger to reveal the harridan's creative deception matched with her political ambitious power links? ~ Angelica Hopes, K.H. Trilogy #Quote by Angelica Hopes
Deception quotes by Charles Grandison Finney
#58. Understand now what lying is. Any species of designed deception. If the deception is not designed it is not lying. But if you design to make an impression contrary to the naked truth, you lie. #Quote by Charles Grandison Finney
Deception quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#59. He looked down at the mask hanging around his neck. So simple a lie, and he could walk freely throughout the world.
But would he then be trapped within the web of his own deception? What freedom could he find in denying the truth about himself? #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Deception quotes by Sean DeLauder
#60. For all their simplicity, humans could be remarkably perceptive, though they didn't know it most of the time, and their ability to thrust straight through deception and see to the heart of truth was often lost with childhood. By adulthood humans had trained themselves to be coy and manipulative in response to the coy and manipulative society in which they lived, which led them to believe that everyone was trying to be as coy and manipulative as themselves and were uncertain about what was true and what was not. Beyond their few flashes of clarity, everything became a muddle of colliding doubts. #Quote by Sean DeLauder
Deception quotes by Walter Lippmann
#61. There is nothing disastrous in the temporary nature of our ideas. They are always that. But there may very easily be a train of evil in the self-deception which regards them as final. I think God will forgive us our skepticism sooner than our Inquisitions. #Quote by Walter Lippmann
Deception quotes by D.A. Blankinship
#62. We cannot separate doubt from deception. Doubt robs a man of his confidence; it is a fearful thing. Offer him deception to restore that confidence and he will embrace the falsehood for the comfort it brings. If you would deceive, begin with doubt. #Quote by D.A. Blankinship
Deception quotes by Haruki Murakami
#63. You can hide as cleverly as you like, but in the final analysis mimicry is deception, pure and simple. It doesn't solve a thing. #Quote by Haruki Murakami
Deception quotes by Suzanne Finnamore
#64. I know my vision is impaired and cannot be trusted with even the simplest tasks, much less dating. Not that I´ve come within talon distance of a man. #Quote by Suzanne Finnamore
Deception quotes by Jack London
#65. Truth often finds its way to the mind close muffled in robes of sleep, and then speaks with uncompromising directness of matters in regard to which we practise an unconscious self-deception during our waking moments. #Quote by Jack London
Deception quotes by Angelica Hopes
#66. In order to know something, you must go back to the source. You have to be critical and wise what are the original roots and not the corrupted outcome but in order to know the truth, you have to examine all angles, all sides, all possible traces of deception, the fortress of protection of hidden elements camouflaged with what it seemed overlapping masks along a river of clear or dirty water. The water flows in varying speed depending on the atmospheric factors and men's interventions in using the flowing water however, the stone remains.

Think of the truth: many would hide it, distort it, change it, bury it, or even destroy it but the uncorrupted truth, the unparalleled truth shall always come out.

How do you seek the truth?

When you seek for the truth, are you guided with an honest heart?

Why do you seek the truth?

Or, are you among those folks who prefer to hide or bury the truth thinking that the majority won't find it out?

If and when the truth comes out, are you among those persons who will target sacrificial lambs for scapegoats?

It is wise to remember that the truth however hidden shall eventually come out.

A Cameroonian proverb says, "Water always finds a way out."

The same thing I can say about the truth:
the truth however hidden shall eventually come out.

The water flows, the stones remain.
The lies flow, the truth remains.

The truth th #Quote by Angelica Hopes
Deception quotes by Dark Jar Tin Zoo
#67. I love that she loves me a 10, on a 5-point scale. Well, I know it's a 5-point scale, though I asked her on a 1-100 scale. #Quote by Dark Jar Tin Zoo
Deception quotes by Elizabeth I
#68. I would gladly chastise those who represent things as different from what they are. Those who steal property or make counterfeit money are punished, and those ought to be still more severely dealt with who steal away or falsify the good name of a prince. #Quote by Elizabeth I
Deception quotes by Scott B. Pruden
#69. By the standards of a tourist strolling past looking for a quick lunch, the place was a dive. The sign on the window was small and easy to miss, and the antique feel of the place wasn't the prepackaged, old-shit-on-the-wall nostalgia that came with so many chain restaurants. The cafe was just old, and everything about it said old. But Jon liked it that way, if only because it kept the tourists away and spared him from hearing imported ignorance when there was plenty of local ignorance to go around. #Quote by Scott B. Pruden
Deception quotes by Lewis Gordon Pugh
#70. On my second swim at Deception Island, the water was very clear and I was looking at hundreds of whale bones beneath me. It was a graveyard from the whaling some time in the 1920s-30s. #Quote by Lewis Gordon Pugh
Deception quotes by Georg C. Lichtenberg
#71. Men still have to be governed by deception. #Quote by Georg C. Lichtenberg
Deception quotes by Suzanne Finnamore
#72. He announces that lately he keeps losing things. "Like your wife and child," I want to say, but don´t. At fourty, I´ve learned not to say everything clever, not to score every point. #Quote by Suzanne Finnamore
Deception quotes by Mark Twain
#73. Everybody lies ... every day, every hour, awake, asleep, in his dreams, in his joy, in his mourning. If he keeps his tongue still his hands, his feet, his eyes, his attitude will convey deception. #Quote by Mark Twain
Deception quotes by Tana French
#74. What I warn you to remember is that I am a detective. Our relationship with truth is fundamental but cracked, refracting confusingly like fragmented glass. It is the core of our careers, the endgame of every move we make, and we pursue it with strategies painstakingly constructed of lies and concealment and every variation on deception. #Quote by Tana French
Deception quotes by Derek Landy
#75. The fact is that we have no way of knowing if the person who we think we are is at the core of our being. Are you a decent girl with the potential to someday become an evil monster, or are you an evil monster that thinks it's a decent girl?"
"Wouldn't I know which one I was?"
"Good God, no. The lies we tell other people are nothing to the lies we tell ourselves. #Quote by Derek Landy
Deception quotes by Scott Lynch
#76. We're a different sort of thief here, Lamora. Deception and misdirection are our tools. We don't believe in hard work when a false face and a good line of bullshit can do so much more. #Quote by Scott Lynch
Deception quotes by Maria Karvouni
#77. Start believing in conspiracies, because those who have the power conspire, and they keep their power by having people not believing in conspiracies. #Quote by Maria Karvouni
Deception quotes by Stefan Zweig
#78. The instinct for self-deception in human beings makes them try to banish from their minds dangers of which at bottom they are perfectly aware by declaring them non-existent. #Quote by Stefan Zweig
Deception quotes by Bamigboye Olurotimi
#79. Some human beings in their craftiness thought they can pretend to be good when they are actually bad. #Quote by Bamigboye Olurotimi
Deception quotes by Oscar Auliq-Ice
#80. If capitalism was under another system which regulated it, so that supplies would fit the demand, rather than the suppliers trying to manipulate demands with deception to sell, then capitalism would be a great system. #Quote by Oscar Auliq-Ice
Deception quotes by Lewis Gordon Pugh
#81. The swim at Deception Island was by far the hardest swim I've ever done. Antarctica is a very unforgiving environment. If you don't train properly, you'll die. #Quote by Lewis Gordon Pugh
Deception quotes by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
#82. We sometimes benefit way more from being lied to than the person lying to us. #Quote by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
Deception quotes by Erna Paris
#83. Finally, I had held up examples of Goldhagen's inflammatory language and suggested that he had missed the essence of what Primo Levi once called the 'grey zone' of human affairs, described by the historian Christopher Browning as that foggy universe of mixed motives, conflicting emotions, personal priorities, reluctant choices, opportunism and accomodation, all wedded, when convenient, to self-deception and denial. I thought that by marshalling his research into an overly narrow narrative, painted without nuance in black and white, the author had missed the human complexity and the ordinariness of racism. #Quote by Erna Paris
Deception quotes by Thomas Sowell
#84. The media are less a window on reality, than a stage on which officials and journalists perform self-scripted, self-serving fictions. #Quote by Thomas Sowell
Deception quotes by Thomas Hood
#85. When Eve upon the first of Men
The apple press'd with specious cant,
Oh! what a thousand pities then
That Adam was not adamant! #Quote by Thomas Hood
Deception quotes by Rene Descartes
#86. It is only prudent never to place complete confidence in that by which we have even once been deceived. #Quote by Rene Descartes
Deception quotes by James Jacob Prasch
#87. In the deception he perpetrates, the Antichrist will attempt to counterfeit the Millennial Reign of Christ #Quote by James Jacob Prasch
Deception quotes by Suzanne Finnamore
#88. I´ve blown it, the whole grisly charade. #Quote by Suzanne Finnamore
Deception quotes by Ralph Robert Moore
#89. I loved all the Hardy Boy books. Once I collected my paperboy money each Friday I'd walk into town, make the rounds of all the local thrift shops (where you could buy a used hardback for a quarter.) I'd always get excited swinging open the front cover of a newly discovered book in the series. Let's solve a mystery! And investigate the long-abandoned water tower north of town. They were a lot of fun. And science fiction, although these were paperbacks. I stopped going to church when I was about ten. I'd get dressed and go out the front door telling my mom I was going to church, but I'd have a science fiction paperback jammed in the back pocket of my trousers. Once I got near the church (St. Mary's on Greenwich Avenue), I'd veer down a side street, pull out my book, and stumble along the sidewalks for an hour, visiting another planet, sometimes another galaxy. My mother eventually found out about my deception - a friend told her she had spotted me walking, reading, when I was supposed to be at mass. I explained to my mother I didn't want to attend church anymore, and she accepted that. If it made her sad, she never showed me. She was actually an incredibly good mother, which I realize more and more as I age. #Quote by Ralph Robert Moore
Deception quotes by Ellen G. White
#90. Again Satan was defeated, and again he resorted to deception, in the hope of converting his defeat into a victory. To stir up rebellion in the fallen race, he now represented God as unjust in having permitted man to transgress his law. "Why," said the artful tempter, "when God knew what would be the result, did he permit man to be placed on trial, to sin, and bring in misery and death?" And the children of Adam, forgetful of the long-suffering mercy that had granted man another trial, regardless of the amazing, the awful sacrifice which his rebellion had cost the King of heaven, gave ear to the tempter, and murmured against the only Being who could save them from the destructive power of Satan. #Quote by Ellen G. White
Deception quotes by Stanley Victor Paskavich
#91. I'm contemplating if book sales and promotions can actually be rigged like so many other things in our everyday lives? #Quote by Stanley Victor Paskavich
Deception quotes by Elizabeth Gaskell
#92. Oh! that look of love!" continued he, between his teeth, as he bolted himself into his own private room. "And that cursed lie; which showed some terrible shame in the background, to be kept from the light in which I thought she lived perpetually! Oh, Margaret, Margaret! Mother, how you have tortured me! Oh! Margaret, could you not have loved me? I am but uncouth and hard, but I would never have led you into any falsehood for me. #Quote by Elizabeth Gaskell
Deception quotes by CLB520
#93. Your words they cut me,
Like a knife creating a scar.
But one thing I'll always remember,
I know NOW who & what you are.

Deception quotes by Joseph B. Wirthlin
#94. Lucifer is a master at gradual deception. #Quote by Joseph B. Wirthlin
Deception quotes by Richard Wright
#95. Was emotionally true because I had already grown to feel that there existed men against whom I was powerless, men who could violate my life at will. I resolved that I would emulate the black woman if I were ever faced with a white mob; I would conceal a weapon, pretend that I had been crushed by the wrong done to one of my loved ones; then, just when they thought I had accepted their cruelty as the law of my life, I would let go with my gun and kill as many of them as possible before they killed me. The story of the woman's deception gave form and meaning to confused defensive feelings that had long been sleeping in me. My imaginings, of course, had no objective #Quote by Richard Wright
Deception quotes by The Arbinger Institute
#96. Self-deception is like this. It blinds us to the true causes of problems, and once we're blind, all the "solutions" we can think of will actually make matters worse. Whether at work or at home, self-deception obscures the truth about ourselves, corrupts our view of others and our circumstances, and inhibits our ability to make wise and helpful decisions. #Quote by The Arbinger Institute
Deception quotes by Arthur K. Flam
#97. You know, everything's a sort of lie, and then you die. #Quote by Arthur K. Flam
Deception quotes by William James
#98. To give up pretensions is as blessed a relief as to get them ratified. #Quote by William James
Deception quotes by Jennifer McGowan
#99. It's never an easy thing to be a woman, Beatrice. And a woman in power is more at risk than any other. She invites attention. She is strong when the whole world thinks she should be weak, and there are those who don't like that fact. Remember that. #Quote by Jennifer McGowan
Deception quotes by John Negroponte
#100. It should be obvious that this pattern of systematic holes and gaps in Iraq's declaration is not the result of accidents, editing oversights or technical mistakes. These are material omissions that - in our view - constitute another material breach. It is up to Iraq to prove that there is some other explanation besides the obvious one, that this declaration is just one more act of deception in a history of lies from a defiant dictator. #Quote by John Negroponte
Deception quotes by B.H. Liddell Hart
#101. Looking back on the stages by which various fresh ideas gained acceptance, it can be seen that the process was eased when they could be presented, not as something radically new, but as the revival in modern terms of a time-honoured principle or practice that had been forgotten. This required not deception, but care to trace the connection-since 'there is nothing new under the sun'. A notable example was the way that the opposition to mechanization was diminished by showing that the mobile armoured vehicle-the fast-moving tank-was fundamentally the heir of the armoured horseman, and thus the natural means of reviving the decisive role which cavalry had played in past ages. #Quote by B.H. Liddell Hart
Deception quotes by Vincent Cheung
#102. God has not left us defenseless against the devil's strategies of deception. If Satan's weapon of attack is intellectual deception, then our defense and counterattack consist in truth. #Quote by Vincent Cheung
Deception quotes by Courtney M. Privett
#103. History is the lie. History's words stain otherwise pristine books, drops of inky poison frosted in sugared deception. #Quote by Courtney M. Privett
Deception quotes by T.F. Hodge
#104. Betrayal and dishonor is usually an inside job. Keep it 'sucka-free', loved one! #Quote by T.F. Hodge
Deception quotes by Lemony Snicket
#105. I don't know why wicked places generally look wicked. You'd think they'd look nice, to fool people, but they hardly ever do. #Quote by Lemony Snicket
Deception quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#106. Did you like my novel?" she couldn't resist asking.
"Yes, I did. At first I thought it would be typical silver-fork fare. But I liked the way your well-bred characters began to unravel. I liked the portrayal of decent people moved to deception, violence, betrayal... you don't seem to shrink from anything in your writing."
"Critics say my work is lacking in decency."
"That's because your underlying theme- that ordinary people are capable of extraordinary things in their private lives- makes them uncomfortable. #Quote by Lisa Kleypas
Deception quotes by S.A. David
#107. The polygrapher is not one's friend even if he or she tries to convince one he or she is on one's side. Outright deception! What the polygrapher frequently does is attempt to plant fear in the 'interviewee' by hyping the accuracy of the polygraph machine. For the love of God the polygraph machine isn't God! The more one's afraid that the skeletons in one's closet would be unearthed; the greater one's physiological reactions would turn out. Enough! #Quote by S.A. David
Deception quotes by Martin Heidegger
#108. the more concretely I am in the world, the more genuine the existence of deception. #Quote by Martin Heidegger
Deception quotes by Thomas More
#109. As God loves me, when I consider this, then every modern society seems to me to be nothing but a conspiracy of the rick, who while protesting their interest in the common good pursue their own interests and stop at no trick and deception to secure their ill-gotten possessions, to pay as little as possible for the labor that produces their wealth and so force its makers to accept the nearest thing to nothing. They contrive rules for securing and assuring these tidy profits for the rich in the name of the common good, including of course the poor, and call them laws! #Quote by Thomas More
Deception quotes by Grenville Kleiser
#110. Tact, the kind of tact you should cultivate, is not a form of deception or make-believe, but a cultivated taste which gives fine perception in seeing and doing what is best under all circumstances. There is nothing which will so readily bring you into favor, or disarm an opponent, as the right use of tact. #Quote by Grenville Kleiser
Deception quotes by Sherry Thomas
#111. At deception he means. Perhaps I am better than some, but every woman has a great deal of experience presenting herself as someone other than who she is, since no girl is ever everything the world wants her to be. #Quote by Sherry Thomas
Deception quotes by Wayne Gerard Trotman
#112. The weak will try to convince you that weakness is strength. #Quote by Wayne Gerard Trotman
Deception quotes by Jim Steinmeyer
#113. The art of a magician is not found in the simple deception, but in what surrounds it, the construction of a reality which supports the illusion. #Quote by Jim Steinmeyer
Deception quotes by Renzo Novatore
#114. LOVE: Deception of the flesh and damage to the spirit. Disease of the soul, atrophy of the brain, weakening of the heart, corruption of the senses, poetic lies from which one gets ferociously inebriated two or three times a day in order to consume this precious but stupid life more quickly. And yet I would prefer to die of love. Its the only swindler, after Judas, that can kill with a kiss. #Quote by Renzo Novatore
Deception quotes by Pope John Paul II
#115. The greatest deception, and the deepest source of unhappiness, is the illusion of finding life by excluding God, of finding freedom by excluding moral truths and personal responsibility. #Quote by Pope John Paul II
Deception quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#116. The Holy Spirit will teach you, how to distinguish between right and wrong doctrines #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Deception quotes by Lindsey Rietzsch
#117. Satan wants you to believe that you don't have a choice in the matter. You can't be happy until things go the way that you want them to. Once you have the perfect marriage, your finances under control, a better job, or a nicer home - then you'll be happy. LIES, LIES, LIES. You will never be happy until you make the decision to do so. #Quote by Lindsey Rietzsch
Deception quotes by Karl Jaspers
#118. An ideology is a complex of ideas or notions which represents itself to the thinker as an absolute truth for the interpretation of the world and his situation within it; it leads the thinker to accomplish an act of self-deception for the purpose of justification, obfuscation and evasion in some sense or other to his advantage. #Quote by Karl Jaspers
Deception quotes by Michelle McKinney Hammond
#119. [ ... ]patience is the weapon that forces deception to reveal itself. It is the insurance against being deceived or making wrong decisions. Some things can only be made known by waiting. God takes his time. #Quote by Michelle McKinney Hammond
Deception quotes by Chris  Pavone
#120. But there's this giant deception at the foundation of their relationship, their happiness. This impure motive. There was that small mistake that the woman made, uttering the wrong number. And then the man reconstructed an entire intrigue, a big thick plot - a seduction and affair and relationship and marriage proposal, a whole life - around her error and his notice of it. Taking advantage of her lie.

But does that make their relationship less real? Does that make it impossible that they genuinely love each other? #Quote by Chris Pavone
Deception quotes by Anonymous
#121. the form of deception being produced is a BFL, the truthful information one possesses is contextually unproblematic, the truthful information is easily accessible within memory (i.e., involves data that recently were uploaded to working memory), and any false information that might be used to construct the BFL must be retrieved from long-term memory. #Quote by Anonymous
Deception quotes by Shannon Mullen
#122. How can any of us even know what to believe anymore? Our culture's full of so much phoniness and deception. Companies advertise products to make us believe that we will be more beautiful, more healthy, or live longer by consuming their products. We are seduced by lovers who feed their porn addictions when we're asleep. We're taught to believe that if we work hard and take risks, that we can achieve our dreams, yet youth unemployment is the highest it's been in decades. Fairytales tell us that true love exists, but half of all marriages end in divorce. #Quote by Shannon Mullen
Deception quotes by Pablo Picasso
#123. Academic training in beauty is a sham. We have been so deceived, but so well deceived that we can scarcely get back even a shadow of the truth. #Quote by Pablo Picasso
Deception quotes by Janie Chang
#124. The best gardens are created through the art of deception, says Fox. Gardens should employ the art of the large in the small and the small in the large, providing for the real in the unreal and the unreal in the real. #Quote by Janie Chang
Deception quotes by Stanley Cohen
#125. By contrast, the late-modern and post-modern self has in essence no essence. To this fragmented, fluid and compartmentalized self, denial, far from being an aberration, is only to be expected. This, however, is not just a change in world-views. Freud himself was quite clear that the unitary self of even the healthiest, 'integrated' person was permanently under siege. The self could never be fully socialized; denial and self-deception are part of being human. #Quote by Stanley Cohen
Deception quotes by Demosthenes
#126. Nothing is easier than self-deceit.
For what every man wishes,
that he also believes to be true. #Quote by Demosthenes
Deception quotes by Ahmed Mostafa
#127. You only reveal your game plan when you know you're winning, or losing. #Quote by Ahmed Mostafa
Deception quotes by Keith R.A. DeCandido
#128. All aspects of honor derive from honesty. A liar cannot truly be honorable, for where is the honor in deception? #Quote by Keith R.A. DeCandido
Deception quotes by Suzanne Finnamore
#129. They feel life is for the taking, and that everyone deserves happiness no matter what the cost. I must remember these tricks if I ever decide to have my soul surgically removed. #Quote by Suzanne Finnamore
Deception quotes by Os Hillman
#130. Sin makes our armor vulnerable to attack from Satan, who then gains permission from God to attack us in the area where we have failed to uphold righteousness. If we break down in moral purity, Satan comes in and establishes a stronghold. If we give place to bitterness and unwillingness to forgive, we break fellowship with God and others. If we become money-focused, we fall into greed and deception. Sin is a vicious cycle that leaves us weak and vulnerable to ever more sin. #Quote by Os Hillman
Deception quotes by Suzanne Finnamore
#131. I love you as the mother of my child: the kiss of death.
Mother of His Child: demotion. I am beginning to see this truism: Mothers are not always wives. I have been stripped of a piece of self. #Quote by Suzanne Finnamore
Deception quotes by Rush Limbaugh
#132. Everything about the left is perception, manipulation, and lies. Everything. Everything is 'Wag the Dog.' Everything is a structured deception. #Quote by Rush Limbaugh
Deception quotes by Napoleon Bonaparte
#133. History is a set of lies agreed upon. #Quote by Napoleon Bonaparte
Deception quotes by Terence McKenna
#134. Every culture that's ever existed has operated under the illusion that it understood 95% of reality and that the other 5% would be delivered in the next 18 months, and from Egypt forward they've been running around believing they had a perfect grip on things and yet we look back at every society that preceded us with great smugness at how naive they all were. Well, it never occurs to us, then, that maybe we're whistling in the dark too! That the universe is stranger than you CAN suppose, and that that openness that that perception imparts is a great joy, a great blessing, because then you can live your life not in service to some fascistic metaphor but in service to the living mystery: the fact that you're not going to understand it; it is not going to yield to logic; or magic; or any other technique that's been developed ... #Quote by Terence McKenna
Deception quotes by Debasish Mridha
#135. Love! In the midst of deception, you are my trust. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Deception quotes by Thomas Bernhard
#136. People are always talking about it being their duty to find their way to their fellow men - to their neighbour, as they are forever saying with all the baseness of false sentiment - when in fact it is purely and simply a question of finding their way to themselves. Let each first find his way to himself! And since hardly anyone has yet found his way to himself, it is inconceivable that any of these unfortunate millions has ever found his way to another human being - or to his neighbour, as they say, dripping with self-deception. #Quote by Thomas Bernhard
Deception quotes by Ortega Y Gasset
#138. There might be a deceptive tendency to believe that a life born into a world of plenty should be better, more really a life than one which consists in a struggle against scarcity. #Quote by Ortega Y Gasset
Deception quotes by Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
#139. Make an effort with tenacity to make real impact that works and don't just create an impression with deception #Quote by Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
Deception quotes by Pete Kahle
#140. the creature had learned much. It had learned to survive in the wild and among humanity. It had learned camouflage and stealth and deception. It had learned to identify danger and to protect itself against attackers. Through its feline and rodent thralls, the creature had even learned empathy and a sense of belonging. However, it had never found a name that it considered worthy. #Quote by Pete Kahle
Deception quotes by Hans Arp
#141. Dada aimed to destroy the reasonable deceptions of man and recover the natural and unreasonable order. #Quote by Hans Arp
Deception quotes by Elyn R. Saks
#142. I was afraid the staff would laugh at me - and as frightened as I was, the thought of derision frightened me even more. In retrospect, it was a life-threatening deception, somewhat along the lines of hiding recurrent chest pains from one's cardiologist from embarrassment. Nearly #Quote by Elyn R. Saks
Deception quotes by Sun Tzu
#143. A military operation involves deception. Even though you are competent, appear to be incompetent. Though effective, appear to be ineffective. #Quote by Sun Tzu
Deception quotes by Suzanne Finnamore
#144. This does not escape my notice, it is a context. I resent the fact of a context; my social status has shifted and no one is going to acknowldege it, that´s certain. I´m expected to be Brave and Rise Above. I dress for the role; I must look far better now that I did when I was married. I must look pulled together into a nice tight Hermès knot of self-containment. I don´t make the rules; I just do my best to follow them. #Quote by Suzanne Finnamore
Deception quotes by Vladimir Lenin
#145. People always have been and they always will be stupid victims of deceit and self-deception in politics. #Quote by Vladimir Lenin
Deception quotes by Donald Capps
#146. the mystery of love bespeaks another mystery - the mystery of God. If we refuse to ascribe the name of God to the mystery of love, we shall remain in the throes of endless self-deception. Which means that melancholia cannot but be deeply, inherently religious. It has its human players and counterplayers, yet, in the end, it always comes down to one's personal experience of the mystery, the uncanniness of love. And there is nothing more uncanny than a love that has no knowable boundaries. #Quote by Donald Capps
Deception quotes by Gail Trebesch Opper
#147. The world is nearing spiritual death, and America is second only to Europe in the digging of its grave - a grave dug by deception. #Quote by Gail Trebesch Opper
Deception quotes by Darynda Jones
#148. The regular I both feared and salivated to see was names Reyes Farrow. Where others exuded aggression, deception, and insecurity, he literally dripped confidence, sex, and power. Mostly sex. #Quote by Darynda Jones
Deception quotes by Upton Sinclair
#149. Man is an evasive beast, given to cultivating strange notions about himself. He is humiliated by his simian ancestry, and tries to deny his animal nature, to persuade himself that he is not limited by its weaknesses nor concerned in its fate. And this impulse may be harmless, when it is genuine. But what are we to say when we see the formulas of heroic self-deception made use of by unheroic self-indulgence? #Quote by Upton Sinclair
Deception quotes by James E. Faust
#150. Cheating in school is a form of self-deception. We go to school to learn. We cheat ourselves when we coast on the efforts and scholarship of someone else. #Quote by James E. Faust
Deception quotes by Marcel Proust
#151. It is the wicked deception of love that it begins by making us dwell not upon a woman in the outside world but upon a doll inside our head, the only woman who is always available in fact, the only one we shall ever possess, whom the arbitrary nature of memory, almost as absolute as that of the imagination, may have made as different from the real woman as the real Balbec had been from the Balbec I imagined- a dummy creation that little by little, to our own detriment, we shall force the real woman to resemble. #Quote by Marcel Proust
Deception quotes by Fred Munoz
#152. You cannot weave the truth from a string of lies #Quote by Fred Munoz
Deception quotes by H.G.Wells
#153. I don't think you fully appreciate the importance of Illusion in life, the Essential Nature of Lies and Deception of the body politic. #Quote by H.G.Wells
Deception quotes by Major Owens
#154. It's a sad day when the leaders of the free world engage in such deception and trickery. I voted against this unnecessary war and will continue to argue that the best way to support our troops is to bring them home. #Quote by Major Owens
Deception quotes by Billy Graham
#155. Our culture will stand in roaring ovations for the illusionists, escape artists, and magicians. Deception is everything opposite the truth. #Quote by Billy Graham
Deception quotes by Sol Luckman
#156. So it was a crossroads summer, when the universe seemed to stand perilously still like an egg wobbling on a precipice, a regular rite of passage summer that saw us traverse the hazardous divide between the illusions of boyhood and the far more pernicious deceptions of maturity, et cetera. #Quote by Sol Luckman
Deception quotes by Brom
#157. A house built on lies has a weak foundation. #Quote by Brom
Deception quotes by George Washington
#158. I hate deception, even where the imagination only is concerned. #Quote by George Washington
Deception quotes by Jason Lohman
#159. There is one thing I know for sure and I address this topic in a later chapter, as well. Demons love to masquerade as dead people and deceive the living as if it is their loved ones. Demons are masters of deception. They also know the art of residual and intelligent haunting, which I will explain in a later chapter. #Quote by Jason Lohman
Deception quotes by Adrian Rogers
#160. The Mafia and crime bosses of this world are amateurs compared to this syndicate, ruled by the prince of darkness and the master of deception who wears many disguises and has many aliases. #Quote by Adrian Rogers
Deception quotes by William James
#161. I believe there is no source of deception in the investigation of nature which can compare with a fixed belief that certain kinds of phenomena are IMPOSSIBLE. #Quote by William James
Deception quotes by Joseph Finder
#162. Surely you know the Thirty-Six Stratagems." I shook my head. "The ancient Chinese art of deception." "Oh, right. Sun Tzu. Jay Stoddard's favorite." "Forget Sun Tzu's Art of War. That's so commonplace." He held up a gnarled, age-spotted finger. "Far more interesting than Sun Tzu is Chu-ko Liang. Perhaps the most brilliant military strategist ever. One of his stratagems was to defeat your enemy from within. Infiltrate the enemy's camp in the guise of cooperation or surrender. Then, once you've discovered the source of his weakness, you strike." Somehow the setting - the visitors' room of the Altamont Correctional Facility - made my father's advice a little less authoritative. As I walked out of the visitors' room, I savored a feeling of relief. Because at that moment I knew that my brother was alive. #Quote by Joseph Finder
Deception quotes by Kathleen Hall Jamieson
#163. Spin' is a polite word for deception. Spinners mislead by means that range from subtle omissions to outright lies. Spin paints a false picture of reality by bending facts, mischaracterizing the words of others, ignoring or denying crucial evidence, or just 'spinning a yarn' - by making things up. #Quote by Kathleen Hall Jamieson
Deception quotes by Michayla Roth
#164. Deception was another phase of life, with betrayal at its heels; or sometimes, shining in its eyes. #Quote by Michayla Roth
Deception quotes by Dorothy L. Sayers
#165. [On marriage and permanent attachment:]
Well, well
the prizes all go to the women who 'play their cards well'
but if they can only be won in that way, I would rather lose the game ... [C]lever [women] bide their time
make themselves indispensable first, and then se font prier [=play hard to get]. Clever
but I can't do it. #Quote by Dorothy L. Sayers
Deception quotes by Thomas Pynchon
#166. The moment of assassination is the moment when power and the ignorance of power come together, with Death as validator. #Quote by Thomas Pynchon
Deception quotes by John Calvin
#167. The flesh is willing to flatter itself, and many who now give themselves every indulgence, promise to themselves an easy entrance into life. THus men practice mutual deception on each other and fall asleep in wicked indifference. #Quote by John Calvin
Deception quotes by Neil T. Anderson
#168. The worst thing you can do for your loved one caught in alcoholism or addiction is to help the person continue in the deception that he or she is OK. Your best course of action is to speak the truth in love (see Eph. 4:15) and don't allow him or her to escape the consequences of wrong behavior. #Quote by Neil T. Anderson
Deception quotes by John Steinbeck
#169. It was strange to Old Robert that he, who knew so much more than his neighbors, who had pondered so endlessly, should be not even a good farmer. Sometimes he imagined he understood too many things ever to do anything well. #Quote by John Steinbeck
Deception quotes by Thomas Merton
#170. The Christ we find in ourselves is not identified with what we vainly seek to admire and idolize in ourselves - on the contrary, he has identified himself with what we resent in ourselves, for he has taken upon himself our wretchedness and our misery, our poverty and our sins…. We will never find peace if we listen to the voice of our own fatuous self-deception that tells us the conflict has ceased to exist. We will find peace when we can listen to the 'death dance' in our blood, not only with equanimity but with exultation because we hear within it the echoes of the victory of the Risen Savior. #Quote by Thomas Merton
Deception quotes by Ephrem The Syrian
#171. When you begin to read or listen to the Holy Scriptures, pray to God thus: "Lord Jesus Christ, open the ears and eyes of my heart so that I may hear Thy words and understand them, and may fulfill Thy will." Always pray to God like this, that He might illumine your mind and open to you the power of His words. Many, having trusted in their own reason, have turned away into deception. #Quote by Ephrem The Syrian
Deception quotes by Barbara Ehrenreich
#172. In other words, it requires deliberate self-deception, including a constant effort to repress or block out unpleasant possibilities and 'negative' thoughts. The truly self-confident, or those who have in some way made their peace with the world and their destiny within it, do not need to expend effort censoring or otherwise controlling their thoughts. #Quote by Barbara Ehrenreich
Deception quotes by Ava Dellaira
#173. No guilt or anger or longing changes that. #Quote by Ava Dellaira
Deception quotes by Ahmed Mostafa
#174. You're such a sucker for sweet talk that you'd lie with every scumbag who comes your way. #Quote by Ahmed Mostafa
Deception quotes by Jessica Park
#175. Matthew, confess now. Are you a closeted font nerd? Do you go to these conferences? I promise I won't respect you any less if you are. OK, fine, secretly I will, but it's better to get this off your chest and be who you are, than to live in deception. Hiding the truth will only cripple your emotional development"
"Well, I'm sorry to dissapoint you. I'm not a font nerd. You can email me in Papyrus and I won't care. #Quote by Jessica Park
Deception quotes by Jonathan Grant
#176. Although we should affirm the wonder and mystery of sexual intimacy and romantic attraction as God's good creations, we need to set these aesthetic enjoyments within the context of the Christian virtues of fidelity, self-sacrifice, and patience in suffering.

Bringing this together, our pastoral approach should be double-edged, seeking to challenge our culture's worship of sexual desire and personal fulfillment while offering a different vision of human flourishing. Christian formative involves both RESISTANCE and REDIRECTION. But is is the redirection of our desires that enables our resistance of cultural idolatries. Failure to attend to the dynamics of our desires leads to inevitable self-deception regarding the 'freedom' of our actions. Especially within our sexual lives, our hearts must be truly captivated by the goodness of the Christian vision of life, so that our whole self is drawn toward it, or our commitment to live in tune with it will be brittle. #Quote by Jonathan Grant
Deception quotes by Errol Morris
#177. If you asked me what makes the world go round, I would say self-deception. Self-deception allows us to create a consistent narrative for ourselves that we actually believe. I'm not saying that the truth doesn't matter. It does. But self-deception is how we survive. #Quote by Errol Morris
Deception quotes by Elizabeth Gaskell
#178. Thus, you see, he arrived at the same end, via supposed duty, that he was previously pledged to via interest. I fancy a good number of us, when any line of action will promote our own interest, can make ourselves believe that reasons exist which compel us to it as a duty. #Quote by Elizabeth Gaskell
Deception quotes by Suzanne Finnamore
#179. There is that, and there is also the Irreconcilable Differences line. It seems so catchall, so vague. You could say that about anyone, any man and woman at all. Jesus and Mary Magdalene: "Irreconcilable Differences." JFK and Jackie, anyone at all. It´s built into the man-woman thing. What kind of paltry reason is that? "Insanity" is another box to be checked on the divorce petition, the only alternative to "Irreconcilable Differences." I would like to check it. #Quote by Suzanne Finnamore
Deception quotes by Kiese Laymon
#180. Your letter reminds me that any love that necessitates deception is not love. It doesn't matter if that supposed love is institutional or personal. #Quote by Kiese Laymon
Deception quotes by Ai Yazawa
#181. People's feelings are easily swayed. The things reflected in people's eyes are full of deception. Nothing is as it appears. #Quote by Ai Yazawa
Deception quotes by Serge Schmemann
#182. Recorded engine sounds, however, are a deliberate deception. They're like going to a concert and listening to a recording. On the other hand, I wouldn't mind buying a BMW recording and installing it in my '96 Jeep Cherokee. #Quote by Serge Schmemann
Deception quotes by Epictetus
#183. Thus Epicurus also, when he designs to destroy the natural fellowship of mankind, at the same time makes use of that which he destroys.

For what does he say? 'Be not deceived, men, nor be led astray, nor be mistaken: there is no natural fellowship among rational animals; believe me. But those who say otherwise, deceive you and seduce you by false reasons.' - What is this to you? Permit us to be deceived.

Will you fare worse, if all the rest of us are persuaded that there is a natural fellowship among us, and that it ought by all means to be preserved? Nay, it will be much better and safer for you.

Man, why do you trouble yourself about us? Why do you keep awake for us? Why do you light your lamp? Why do you rise early? Why do you write so many books, that no one of us may be deceived about the gods and believe that they take care of men; or that no one may suppose the nature of good to be other than pleasure?

For if this is so, lie down and sleep, and lead the life of a worm, of which you judged yourself worthy: eat and drink, and enjoy women, and ease yourself, and snore.

And what is it to you, how the rest shall think about these things, whether right or wrong? For what have we to do with you?

You take care of sheep because they supply us with wool and milk, and last of all with their flesh. Would it not be a desirable thing if men could be lulled and enchanted by the Stoics, and sleep and present themselves #Quote by Epictetus
Deception quotes by TemitOpe Ibrahim
#184. Anger is a deception. You engage it thinking you'll feel better but ultimately it drills you deeper in the hurt. #Quote by TemitOpe Ibrahim
Deception quotes by Upton Sinclair
#185. Hitler was calling upon Almighty God to give him courage and strength to save the German people and right the wrongs of Versailles...and then to settle down and govern the county in the interest of those millions of oppressed "little people" for whom he spoke so eloquently. #Quote by Upton Sinclair
Deception quotes by Richard Dawkins
#186. For example, if (as Dawkins argues) deceit is fundamental in animal communication, then there must be strong selection to spot deception and this ought, in turn, to select for a degree of self-deception, rendering some facts and motives unconscious so as not to betray - by the subtle signs of self-knowledge - the deception being practiced. #Quote by Richard Dawkins
Deception quotes by Thomas Merton
#187. When the light of God's truth begins to find its way through the mists of illusion and self-deception with which we have unconsciously surrounded ourselves, and when the image of God within us begins to return to itself, the false self which we inherited from Adam begins to experience the strange panic that Adam felt when, after his sin, he hid in the trees of the garden because he heard the voice of the Lord God in the afternoon.
If we are to recover our own identity, and return to God by the way Adam came in his fall, we must learn to stop saying: "I heard you in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked. And I hid." [Genesis 2:10] We must cast away the "aprons of leaves" and the "garments of skins" which the Fathers of the Church variously interpret as passions, and attachments to earthly things, and fixation in our own rigid determination to be someone other than our true selves. #Quote by Thomas Merton
Deception quotes by Pema Chodron
#188. It is only when we begin to relax with ourselves that meditation becomes a transformative process. Only when we relate with ourselves without moralizing, without harshness, without deception, can we let go of harmful patterns. Without maitri (metta), renunciation of old habits becomes abusive. This is an important point. #Quote by Pema Chodron
Deception quotes by Allama Iqbal
#189. Fareb-e-nazar hai sakoon-o-sabaat
Tarapta hai har zarra-e-qayanaat
Thehrata Nahin Karwaan-E-Wajood
Ke Har Lehza Hai Taza Shaan E Wajood
Samjhta Hai Tu Raaz Hai Zindagi
Faqat Zauq-E-Parwaaz Hai Zindagi

Allama Iqbal

Steadiness is a deception from our eyes,
Every particle in this universe pulsates with a revolution.
Caravan of the existence does not rest,
Every moment life renews itself.
You might think life is a mystery,
Whereas life is merely a flight of desires.
*Translation by Jasz Gill #Quote by Allama Iqbal
Deception quotes by Tatjana Ostojic
#190. Once there are no more obstacles to overcome,
no sudden closeness to achieve,
the eyes open the windows to deception and lies,
when two intimate hearts become strangers again,
that's how the love dies. #Quote by Tatjana Ostojic
Deception quotes by Lee Ellis
#191. Fearful leaders side-step issues instead of dealing with them, cover up mistakes instead of owning up to mistakes; they skulk back into the shadows and hope that the crisis - whatever it is - will somehow blow over instead of facing their fears. Worse, they resort to lies and deception to cover up the truth. #Quote by Lee Ellis
Deception quotes by Chris Hedges
#192. The cult of self dominates our cultural landscape. This cult has within it the classic traits of psychopaths: superficial charm, grandiosity, and self-importance; a need for constant stimulation, a penchant for lying, deception, and manipulation, and the inability to feel remorse or guilt. This is, of course, the ethic promoted by corporations. It is the ethic of unfettered capitalism. It is the misguided belief that personal style and personal advancement, mistaken for individualism, are the same as democratic equality. In fact, personal style, defined by the commodities we buy or consume, has become a compensation for our loss of democratic equality. We have a right, in the cult of the self, to get whatever we desire. We can do anything, even belittle and destroy those around us, including our friends, to make money, to be happy, and to become famous. Once fame and wealth are achieved, they become their own justification, their own morality. How one gets there is irrelevant. Once you get there, those questions are no longer asked. #Quote by Chris Hedges
Deception quotes by George Eliot
#193. Our sweet illusions are half of them conscious illusions, like effects of colour that we know to be made up of tinsel, broken glass and rags. #Quote by George Eliot
Deception quotes by Ellie Lieberman
#194. There's something about the thousands of glittering lights, the veil of nighttime that almost makes this place beautiful, especially in the reflection of the water. It makes everything askew, disoriented. There's more truth in a ripple of water than in a clear day. #Quote by Ellie Lieberman
Deception quotes by Eric Redmon
#195. Quote from Deadly Deception:

He had always killed before just like a mechanic tightens a bolt; dispassionately, no attachments, with a trigger that responded perfectly to his command.

Deception quotes by Michael Stuckey

Deception quotes by Wataru Watari
#197. Tossing out ideas itself was good. Stimulating the conference was something that should be welcomed.

I didn't mind if a formal brainstorm was chosen for the sake of presenting many ideas.

But in the brainstorm and conference we were holding where nobody's ideas were rejected, there was no foreseeable conclusion in sight.

The conference I thought was proceeding on smoothly was beginning to look nonsensical.

When I noticed, my hands recording the minutes had stopped. I loosely let my hands hang under the desk and sat there in silence watching the conference. The expression that I had was completely different from those who were energetically involved in the discussion. They had vivid and bright smiles floating on their faces. That was when I noticed.

They were all enjoying this moment. That's to say, they were enjoying this exchange between each other. What they wanted wasn't the very idea of volunteer
service, but the self­-acknowledgement of them doing these activities.

It's not that they wanted to do work. They just wanted to be immersed with the feeling of working. They just wanted to feel like they were actually doing it.

And then, they would feel like they did everything that they could, where ultimately, everything had turned into nothing. #Quote by Wataru Watari
Deception quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#198. Life has not been devised by morality: it wants deception, it lives on deception. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Deception quotes by Stephen Dau
#199. The recruiters came and talked with us in school, and I remember it like yesterday. I wasn't interested. I told them I wanted to do something good. I told them I wanted to help people. I told them I couldn't do it, told them I wasn't interested.
But they told me that there was no better way to do good and help people. They told me they helped people all the time. Doing good was what they were about. Plus they were going to pay me. Where else could I get paid for helping people? Plus they would pay for my college. Plus, in addition to helping people, and paying me, and paying for my college, they would teach me a skill. I would be helping people, and seeing the world, and earning money, and having college paid for, and learning a skill that I could use later to earn money and help people.
In the end, it was a pretty easy decision. #Quote by Stephen Dau
Deception quotes by Soren Kierkegaard
#200. Only one deception is possible in the infinite sense, self-deception. #Quote by Soren Kierkegaard
