Lies quotes by Michel De Montaigne
#1. The value of life lies not in the length of days, but in the use we make to them; a man may live long, yet get little from life. Whether you find satisfaction in life depends not on your tale of years, but on your will - Montaigne, Essays #Quote by Michel De Montaigne
Lies quotes by Mindy Fordham
#2. Art lovers collect paintings that demonstrate some form of imperceptible complexity. Abstract images with vague messages and symbols that keep you guessing and wondering what it all means, if anything. What these art buffs don't seem to realize is that true complexity - the real abstract image - lies in something as simple and as random as a family photo. If they bothered to look deeply and closely enough into these unremarkable images, they would see the lies, the sorrow and the dark secrets that hide behind the superficial smiles and forced joviality. A picture is worth a thousand words, but most of those words get lost in translation. #Quote by Mindy Fordham
Lies quotes by Jacqueline Francis - The Journal
#3. March 22, 2014

I have found the truth in the lies I told myself. I thought I could run from this woman, but she continues to chase me. In my mind, my heart, she's always there. An entire bottle of whiskey can't drown out her voice. I wake up each morning hoping it will finally be the day that I get over her. But then night falls and memories of her begin to torture me until sleep is no longer an option. Each night I fall into this abyss of nothingness, feeling only the emptiness of not having her beside me.

I have found the truth in the lies I told myself. I slept with another woman, all the while wishing it was her and I still went through with it.
What a fool I was. I still long to feel the satisfaction I was supposed to have felt that night. I still long to feel the freedom I'd hoped to gain from seeking refuge in the arms of another woman. But I'll never be free of her. It will take an eternity to break out of these shackles.

For one month, ONE month I couldn't keep my dick in my pants and yet for two years I haven't even so much as looked at another woman. I've remained completely faithful to a memory. Devoted to her smile.

Committed to her ever-changing green eyes. I have read through the past entries in this journal and I noticed that I have never used her name. As if inking it would somehow solidify the feelings I think I've always felt.

I have found the truth in the lies I told myself. I do love her.
Lo #Quote by Jacqueline Francis - The Journal
Lies quotes by Dalai Lama XIV
#4. After all, all human beings are the same - made up of flesh, bone, and blood. We all want happiness, and we all try to avoid suffering. We are the members of one single human family, and our arguments are born from secondary causes. Disputes, lies, and killings are useless. #Quote by Dalai Lama XIV
Lies quotes by Liz Reinhardt
#5. His mouth closes in on mine, and that single second before our lips meet spins out for eternity. And it makes graphs and flow-charts and PowerPoints underlining all the reasons we should absolutely not be doing this.
But we are.
We so completely are.
Winch walks me back to the bed and lies me down, his entire body pressed long and perfectly weighted over mine. He kisses me with a gentle, coaxing pressure for a few minutes, like he's taking my temperature, gauging my heart rate, and determining if I'm in.
I'm all in. #Quote by Liz Reinhardt
Lies quotes by Hermann Hesse
#6. Now and then I have expressed the opinion that every nation, and every person, would do better, instead of rocking himself to sleep with political catchwords about war-guilt, to ask himself how far his own faults and negligencies and evil tendencies are guilty of the war and all the other wrongs of the world, and that there lies the only possible means of avoiding the next war. #Quote by Hermann Hesse
Lies quotes by Raymond Radiguet
#7. The source of sorrows lies not in leaving life, but in leaving that which gives it meaning. #Quote by Raymond Radiguet
Lies quotes by Timothy Keller
#8. While the difference between a bad sermon and a good sermon is mainly the responsibility of the preacher, the difference between good preaching and great preaching lies mainly in the work of the Holy Spirit ... We should do the work it takes to make our communication good and leave it up to God how and how often he makes it great for the listener. #Quote by Timothy Keller
Lies quotes by Penelope Douglas
#9. Because we all eat lies when our hearts are hungry #Quote by Penelope Douglas
Lies quotes by Howard E. Koch
#10. Uneasy lies the head that craves the crown. #Quote by Howard E. Koch
Lies quotes by Brandi L. Bates
#11. Thighs made of hymns, I read 'em like I'm reading runes. Now tell me where my future lies ... your neck, can I Savion on it? #Quote by Brandi L. Bates
Lies quotes by Epictetus
#12. Is this all the habit you acquired when you studied philosophy, to look to others and to hope for nothing from yourself and your own acts? Lament therefore and mourn, and when you eat be fearful that you will have nothing to eat to-morrow. Tremble for your wretched slaves, lest they should steal, or run away, or die. Live in this spirit, and never cease to live so, you who never came near philosophy, except in name, and disgraced its principles so far as in you lies, by showing them to be useless and unprofitable to those who take them up. #Quote by Epictetus
Lies quotes by Honore De Balzac
#13. Between the daylight gambler and the player at night there is the same difference that lies between a careless husband and the lover swooning under his lady's window. #Quote by Honore De Balzac
Lies quotes by Mark Foley
#14. We're taught as young kids Acknowledge your mistakes, admit your lies, ... It's cathartic. That's what I think the speech did. He didn't just try to blame someone else. #Quote by Mark Foley
Lies quotes by Christina Aguilera
#15. Fighter"

[Spoken:]
After all that you put me through,
You think I'd despise you,
But in the end I wanna thank you,
'Cause you've made me that much stronger

Well I thought I knew you, thinkin' that you were true
Guess I, I couldn't trust called your bluff time is up
'Cause I've had enough
You were there by my side, always down for the ride
But your joy ride just came down in flames 'cause your greed sold me out in shame

After all of the stealing and cheating you probably think that I hold resentment for you
But uh uh, oh no, you're wrong
'Cause if it wasn't for all that you tried to do, I wouldn't know
Just how capable I am to pull through
So I wanna say thank you
'Cause it

[Chorus:]
Makes me that much stronger
Makes me work a little bit harder
It makes me that much wiser
So thanks for making me a fighter
Made me learn a little bit faster
Made my skin a little bit thicker
Makes me that much smarter
So thanks for making me a fighter

Never saw it coming, all of your backstabbing
Just so you could cash in on a good thing before I'd realize your game
I heard you're going round playing the victim now
But don't even begin feeling I'm the one to blame
'Cause you dug your own grave
After all of the fights and the lies 'cause you're wanting to haunt me
But that won't work anymore, no more,
It's #Quote by Christina Aguilera
Lies quotes by Cecil Day-Lewis
#16. We who fly do so for the love of flying. We are alive in the air with this miracle that lies in our hands and beneath our feet. #Quote by Cecil Day-Lewis
Lies quotes by Nick Lake
#17. No one is too old for fairy tales. #Quote by Nick Lake
Lies quotes by Jen Hatmaker
#18. It is not your responsibility to explain what God is doing with your life. He has not provided enough information to figure it out. Instead, you are asked to turn loose and let God be God. Therein lies the secret to the "peace that transcends understanding. #Quote by Jen Hatmaker
Lies quotes by Shiv Khera
#19. TRUTH may hurt temporarily, but LIES leave marks permanently. #Quote by Shiv Khera
Lies quotes by Paulo Coelho
#20. The target is the objective to be reached. It was chosen by the archer and though it is a long way off, we cannot blame it when we fail to hit it. In this lies the beauty of the way of the bow: you can never excuse yourself by saying that your opponent was stronger than you. You were the one who chose the target and you are responsible for it. #Quote by Paulo Coelho
Lies quotes by Emily P. Freeman
#21. As a good girl, my worship was small and my service was toxic because I didn't understand the completeness of my rescue. I knew I was going to heaven when I died, but I thought my life on earth was all up to me. Jesus saved me, and now he was standing back with his arms crossed, waiting to see how I would live my life. Service seemed a burden. Worship felt contrived. I had received Christ by faith for my salvation, but I was working hard for the rest. Until he said *enough*. When I began to understand that my true identity was not in how I looked, how I felt, or the lies I believed, my masks began to lose their staying power. It wasn't because I was trying hard to remove them. It was because I was seeing Jesus for who he really is, and in turn I was letting him see me. #Quote by Emily P. Freeman
Lies quotes by Ovid
#22. The art of medicine in the season lies:
Wine given in season oft will benefit,
Which out of season injures. #Quote by Ovid
Lies quotes by M. Scott Peck
#23. An unconscious, gentle process whereby people who want to be loving attempt to be so by telling little white lies, by withholding some of the truth about themselves and their feelings in order to avoid conflict. Pseudocommunity is conflict-avoiding; true community is conflict-resolving. #Quote by M. Scott Peck
Lies quotes by Johnny Rich
#24. I know everything must be a lie, but I believe it anyway. #Quote by Johnny Rich
Lies quotes by Gunter Grass
#25. Lies that do not hurt, which are different from lies that protect oneself or hurt another person. That is not my business. But the truth is mostly very boring, and you can help it along with lies. There is no harm in that. #Quote by Gunter Grass
Lies quotes by Ayn Rand
#26. She thought of the world's code that worshipped white lies as an act of mercy - she felt a stab of revulsion against that code.. #Quote by Ayn Rand
Lies quotes by Herman Melville
#27. Oh! ye whose dead lie buried beneath the green grass; who standing among flowers can say - here, HERE lies my beloved; ye know not the desolation that broods in bosoms like these. What bitter blanks in those black-bordered marbles which cover no ashes! What despair in those immovable inscriptions! What deadly voids and unbidden infidelities in the lines that seem to gnaw upon all Faith, and refuse resurrections to the beings who have placelessly perished without a grave. As well might those tablets stand in the cave of Elephanta as here. #Quote by Herman Melville
Lies quotes by Doris Kearns Goodwin
#28. York boss William Barnes issued an acid personal attack: "Mr. Roosevelt's departure for Chicago was inevitable. Undignified as it is, and impotent as it will prove to be, its chief interest lies in the disclosure of the mania for power over which Mr. Roosevelt has no control." The people of Chicago greeted the arrival of Theodore Roosevelt quite differently; word that Roosevelt was en route drove the city "plum crazy" with excitement. Ordinary business was suspended as tens of thousands made plans to celebrate Roosevelt's arrival. #Quote by Doris Kearns Goodwin
Lies quotes by Danny Saunders
#29. In my end lies my beginning" Who said that? Mary Stuart, Queen of Scots (1542-1587). #Quote by Danny Saunders
Lies quotes by Anwar Sadat
#30. This [fundamentalism] is not religion. It is obscenity. These are lies, the criminal use of religious power to misguide people. #Quote by Anwar Sadat
Lies quotes by Algernon Charles Swinburne
#31. As a god self-slain on his own strange altar, Death lies dead. #Quote by Algernon Charles Swinburne
Lies quotes by Peter L. Bernstein
#32. So we pour in data from the past to fuel the decision-making mechanisms created by our models, be they linear or nonlinear. But therein lies the logician's trap: past data from real life constitute a sequence of events rather than a set of independent observations, which is what the laws of probability demand.[...]It is in those outliers and imperfections that the wildness lurks. #Quote by Peter L. Bernstein
Lies quotes by Leah Remini
#33. You were either all in or all out. It is an extremist religion. There is no middle ground. And there within its structure lies the danger. #Quote by Leah Remini
Lies quotes by Frances Hardinge
#34. For in this sickened world, it is better to believe in something too fiercely than to believe in nothing.' Words, words, wonderful words. But lies too. 'No, it isn't!' shouted Mosca the Housefly, Quillam Mye's daughter. 'Not if what you're believin' isn't blinkin' well True! You shouldn't just go believin' things for no reason, pertickly if you got a sword in your hand! Sacred just means something you're not meant to think about properly, an' you should never stop thinking! Show me something I can kick, and hit with rocks, and set fire to, and leave out in the rain, and think about, and if it's still standing after all that then maybe, just maybe, I'll start to believe in it, but not till then. An' if all we're left with is muck and wickedness and no gods, then we'd better face it and get used to it because it's better than a lie. Which is what you are, Mr Kohlrabi.' Mosca #Quote by Frances Hardinge
Lies quotes by Marianne Williamson
#35. The point of Jesus' existence wasn't to lessen or diminish our appreciation of each other, but to expand our appreciation of each other by reminding us what lies within all of us, because Jesus was an example of the pinnacle of human evolution. #Quote by Marianne Williamson
Lies quotes by Robert Collier
#36. You can have what you want- if you know how to form the mold for it in your own thoughts. There is no dream that may not come true, if you but learn to use the Creative Force working through you. The methods that work for one will work for all. The key to power lies in using what you have ... freely, fully and thus opening wide your channels for more creative force to flow through you. #Quote by Robert Collier
Lies quotes by Sinclair B. Ferguson
#37. The notion that we are children of God, his own sons and daughters, lies at the heart of all Christian theology, and is the mainspring of all Christian living. #Quote by Sinclair B. Ferguson
Lies quotes by Charlie Huston
#38. It's not that fact of him telling me he's not going to kill me that assures me I've got some time to breathe. Predo could look me in the eye and tell me whiskey's good and cigarettes are better and I'd still need a drink and a Lucky to believe he's not lying. The man breeds lies. He spawns them asexually, with no need for any assistance. He exhales and lies fill the air. Alone in a room, he mutters lies to himself to keep from falling into the trap of truth-telling. In the day, sleeping in his bed, deep in the safest heart of Coalition headquarters, he dreams in lies. The better to keep his left hand from knowing what betrayals his right has planned.
Stretched on the rack and burned with hot irons, Dexter Predo will be in no danger of revealing the truth. Living so far beyond its borders. #Quote by Charlie Huston
Lies quotes by Bram Stoker
#39. Far, far away, there is a beautiful Country which no human eye has ever seen in waking hours. Under the Sunset it lies, where the distant horizon bounds the day, and where the clouds, splendid with light and colour, give a promise of the glory and beauty which encompass it. Sometimes it is given to us to see it in dreams. #Quote by Bram Stoker
Lies quotes by Marshall B. Rosenberg
#40. The cause of anger lies in our thinking - in thoughts of blame and judgment. #Quote by Marshall B. Rosenberg
Lies quotes by Thomas Carlyle
#41. In books lies the soul of the whole Past Time: the articulate audible voice of the Past, when the body and material substance of it has altogether vanished like a dream. #Quote by Thomas Carlyle
Lies quotes by Enna Margo
#42. His eyes were deep as ocean, and I found myself drowning in his lies. #Quote by Enna Margo
Lies quotes by Kerry Greenwood
#43. Most detective story readers are an educated audience and know there are only a certain number of plots. The interest lies in what the writer does with them. #Quote by Kerry Greenwood
Lies quotes by Iris Murdoch
#44. She must not be tempted by truthfulness, she must play the game out to the end. #Quote by Iris Murdoch
Lies quotes by Katie Klein
#45. The more lies you tell the more stories you have to remember. #Quote by Katie Klein
Lies quotes by C. JoyBell C.
#46. In the heart of the mystic lies a deep longing to be reunited with the ancient ways, coupled with a yearning to be able to show others what she can see. She wants to show others what she can see. Sadly, more often than not, others do not have the eyes with which to see, or, their eyes are blinded by bondage and fear. She is ever alone and yet ever accompanied by a thousand leagues of beauties and voices, that this mystic existence can only be described as a thorny rose - the mystic is the one who reaches for the rose because she knows that those who crave the rose must not fear the thorns. #Quote by C. JoyBell C.
Lies quotes by Ernest Hemingway,
#47. The best ammunition against lies is the truth, there is no ammunition against gossip. It is like a fog and the clear wind blows it away and the sun burns it off. #Quote by Ernest Hemingway,
Lies quotes by Holly Black
#48. You're a liar, Cassel Sharpe. A lying liar who lies. #Quote by Holly Black
Lies quotes by Sondra Allan Carr
#49. I prefer the keen edge of truth to the dull comfort of lies. #Quote by Sondra Allan Carr
Lies quotes by Greg Brown
#50. Much is written about wine ... of its makers, its nuances, its myths. The white hot center of each wine's mystery lies in humble corners of the world, where growers pour their intention, their character and their love of labor into each wine. #Quote by Greg Brown
Lies quotes by Matthew Lesko
#51. A degree of lying - you know, white lies - seems to be inherent in all languages and all forms of communication. #Quote by Matthew Lesko
Lies quotes by Xun Zi
#52. Thus, that one can find no place to walk through the breadth of the earth is not because the earth is not tranquil but because the danger to every step of the traveler lies generally with words. #Quote by Xun Zi
Lies quotes by Frank Herbert
#53. The only past which endures lies wordlessly within you. The #Quote by Frank Herbert
Lies quotes by Friedrich Wilhelm Joseph Schelling
#54. This is not the time to reawaken old oppositions, but rather to seek what lies above and beyond all opposition. #Quote by Friedrich Wilhelm Joseph Schelling
Lies quotes by Don Jose Ruiz
#55. If we allow ourselves to suffer, it takes its chance to have power over us, feeding us with lies and making us feel mortal so that it can feel immortal. #Quote by Don Jose Ruiz
Lies quotes by Alicia Suskin Ostriker
#56. And my friend Karen remembers
as a little girl
studying Hebrew she inquired
of her refugee tutor who stroked his beard
and said in Yiddish "if there is a god
or if there isn't a god
a Jew studies"
isn't that a good story
beloved, but the woman in me
says that the poet lies
the poet can afford to lie #Quote by Alicia Suskin Ostriker
Lies quotes by Ken Lange
#57. What lies before me is the hollow husk of a memory turned nightmare, with bleached colors, crumbling structures, and rot corrupting everything it touches. This is the work of Mother Nature gone insane, exacting her revenge and delving deeper into madness in the process. #Quote by Ken Lange
Lies quotes by Mercedes McCambridge
#58. My only true harmony lies deep within my soul, wherever that is. I know that somehow I am in tune with the universe. #Quote by Mercedes McCambridge
Lies quotes by Abdulazeez Henry Musa
#59. The misery of life lies in our thinking". #Quote by Abdulazeez Henry Musa
Lies quotes by Henry Miller
#60. Talk is only a pretext for other, subtler forms of communication. When the latter are inoperative speech becomes dead. If two people are intent upon communicating with one another it doesn't matter in the least how bewildering the talk becomes. People who insist upon clarity and logic often fail in making themselves understood. They are always-searching for a more perfect transmitter, deluded by the supposition that the mind is the only instrument for the exchange of thought. When one really begin to talk one delivers himself. Words are thrown about recklessly, not counted like pennies. One doesn't care about grammatical or factual errors, contradictions, lies and so on. One talks. If you are talking to some one who knows how to listen he understands perfectly, even though the words make no sense. When this kind of talk gets under way a marriage takes place, no matter whether you are talking to a man or a woman. Men talking with other men have as much need of this sort of marriage as women talking with women have. Married couples seldom enjoy this kind of talk, for reasons which are only too obvious. #Quote by Henry Miller
Lies quotes by Eudora Welty
#61. It was entirely taken for granted that there wasn't any lying in our family, and I was advanced in adolescence before I realized that in plenty of homes where I played with schoolmates, and went to their parties, children lied to their parents and parents lied to their children and to each other. It took me a long time to realize that these very same everyday lies, and the stratagems and jokes and tricks and dares that went with them, were in fact the basis of the scenes I so well loved to hear about and hoped for and treasured in the conversation of adults. My instinct - the dramatic instinct - was to lead me, eventually, on the right track for a storyteller: the scene was full of hints, pointers, suggestions, and promises of things to find out and know about human beings.I had to grow up and learn to listen for the unspoken as well as the spoken - and to know a truth, I also had to recognize a lie. #Quote by Eudora Welty
Lies quotes by Tim Kreider
#62. What someone's lies reveal about them (aspirations to being an accomplished writer, fantasies of an exotic history and a cosmopolitan family) are always sadder than the fact of the lies themselves. These inventions illuminate the negative spaces of someone's self-image, their vanity and insecurities and most childish wishes, as we can infer from warped starlight the presence of a far vaster mass of dark matter. #Quote by Tim Kreider
Lies quotes by Brandon Sanderson
#63. You like lies?" Shallan asked. "Good lies," Pattern said. "That lie. Good lie." "What makes a lie good?" Shallan asked, taking careful notes, recording Pattern's exact words. "True lies." "Pattern, those two are opposites." "Hmmmm . . . Light makes shadow. Truth makes lies. Hmmmm. #Quote by Brandon Sanderson
Lies quotes by Edward Burns
#64. The con movie is a little bit different where maybe we tell you what we're going to do but it never goes down the way you expect because there's so much double-crossing and cheats and lies going on along the whole way. #Quote by Edward Burns
Lies quotes by Mike Cosper
#65. Worship isn't merely a yes to the God who saves, but also a resounding and furious no to the lies that echo in the mountains around us. #Quote by Mike Cosper
Lies quotes by Jason E. Royle
#66. The value of this book lies in its heartfelt simplicity. #Quote by Jason E. Royle
Lies quotes by Diana Gabaldon
#67. A trained surgeon is also a potential killer, and an important bit of the training lies in accepting the fact. Your intent is entirely benign - or at least you hope so - but your are laying violent hands on someone, and you must be ruthless in order to do it effectively. And sometimes the person under your hands will die, and knowing that ... you do it anyway. #Quote by Diana Gabaldon
Lies quotes by Jenny Lawson
#68. Life passes. Then comes the depression. That feeling that you'll never be right again. The fear that these outbreaks will become more familiar, or worse, never go away. You're so tired from fighting that you start to listen to all the little lies your brain tells you. The ones that say that you're a drain on your family. The ones that say that it's all in your head. The ones that say that if you were stronger or better this wouldn't be happening to you. #Quote by Jenny Lawson
Lies quotes by Deepak Chandra
#69. There are times when one shall forgive oneself. Therein lies the best possibilities of learning & improving. #Quote by Deepak Chandra
Lies quotes by William Shakespeare
#70. Be wary then; best safety lies in fear. #Quote by William Shakespeare
Lies quotes by Rachel Abbott
#71. It was as if she would never be whole until the secrets of the past were exposed. #Quote by Rachel Abbott
Lies quotes by Ambrose Bierce
#72. The hardest tumble a man can make is to fall over his own bluff. #Quote by Ambrose Bierce
Lies quotes by Pico Iyer
#73. I love the fact that we can't explain coincidences. I think it's like sometimes you walk into a crowded room and you'll see a stranger and you feel as if you know her better than the friends that you came with. And the very fact that you can't explain it is what gives it its power, that it lies in some deeper or mysterious realm, I think. #Quote by Pico Iyer
Lies quotes by Nisargadatta Maharaj
#74. Humanity's problem lies in the misuse of the mind only.
All the treasures of nature and spirit are open to man who will use his mind rightly. #Quote by Nisargadatta Maharaj
Lies quotes by Marya Hornbacher
#75. You know those afternoons," he asks, drawing a shaking breath, "where you're just going along, doing fine, and then afternoon comes and it feels like you've just got the wind knocked out of you and everything is wrong?" He sighs and slowly pushes himself so he's sitting upright. His shoulders are slumped. "That's all," he says. "It's just one of those afternoons."
We are silent for a minute. Then he lies back down on the couch.
I should say I love him. I should say it will be all right. But it won't.
I walk down the hall to my bedroom. I lie down on my side and stare at the wall, the blue-flowered wallpaper next to my nose. Despite my best efforts, I start to cry.
I know those afternoons. #Quote by Marya Hornbacher
Lies quotes by Timur Vermes
#76. We all know, of course, what to make of our newspapers. The deaf man writes down what the blind man has told him, the village idiot edits it, and their colleagues in the other press houses copy it. Each story is doused afresh with the same stagnant infusion of lies, so that the "splendid" brew can then be served up to a clueless Volk. #Quote by Timur Vermes
Lies quotes by Mark Akenside
#77. The man forget not, though in rags he lies, and know the mortal through a crown's disguise. #Quote by Mark Akenside
Lies quotes by Libba Bray
#78. Reminds us that greatness lies even in the smallest of moments, in the humblest of hearts, and we shall, each of us, be called to greatness. Whether we shall rise to meet it or let it slip away is the challenge put before us all. #Quote by Libba Bray
Lies quotes by Muna Adnan Naqi
#79. Every time you think of escaping mentally or physically, grab the book that lies inches away from your heart. #Quote by Muna Adnan Naqi
Lies quotes by Martin H. Fischer
#80. Knowledge is a process of piling up facts; wisdom lies in their simplification. #Quote by Martin H. Fischer
Lies quotes by Salman Rushdie
#81. How treacherous history is! Half-truths, ignorance, deceptions, false trails, errors and lies, and buried somewhere in between all of that, the truth, in which it is easy to lose faith, of which it is consequently easy to say, it's a chimera, there's no such thing, everything is relative, one man's absolute belief is another man's fairy tale; but about which we insist, we insist most emphatically, that it is too important an idea to give up to the relativity merchants. #Quote by Salman Rushdie
Lies quotes by Julia Fierro
#82. everyone is lied to for his or her own good. A mother telling a child it will be okay. A lover telling a lover I will always love you. Politicians promising a better and brighter future. Generals and admirals insisting war begets peace. #Quote by Julia Fierro
Lies quotes by Akshay Vasu
#83. They lied to her every day saying that she can't fly. And the most painful thing about it was, she believed it till the end. #Quote by Akshay Vasu
Lies quotes by Charles Bukowski
#84. I have, he went on, betrayed myself with
belief, deluded myself with love
tricked myself with sex.
the bottle is damned faithful, he said,
the bottle will not lie #Quote by Charles Bukowski
Lies quotes by Fredrik Backman
#85. And time is a curious thing. Most of us only live for the time that lies right ahead of us. A few days, weeks, years. One of the most painful moments in a person's life probably comes with the insight that an age has been reached when there is more to look back on than ahead. And when time no longer lies ahead of one, other things have to be lived for. memories, perhaps. #Quote by Fredrik Backman
Lies quotes by George R R Martin
#86. Who would attack Astapor?" Ser Jorah asked. "Meereen and Yunkai are rivals but not enemies, the Doom destroyed Valyria, the folk of the eastern hinterlands are all Ghiscari, and beyond the hills lies Lhazar. The Lamb Men, as your Dothraki call them, a notably unwarlike people." "Yes," she agreed, "but north of the slave cities is the Dothraki sea, and two dozen mighty khals who like nothing more than sacking cities and carrying off their people into slavery." "Carrying them off where? What good are slaves once you've killed the slavers? Valyria is no more, Qarth lies beyond the red waste, and the Nine Free Cities are thousands of leagues to the west. And you may be sure the sons of the harpy give lavishly #Quote by George R R Martin
Lies quotes by Charles Baxter
#87. When you break the heart of the philosopher, you must apply great force and cunning strategy, but when the deed is completed, the heart lies in great stony ruin at your feet. If you succeed in breaking it, the job is done once and for all. It will not be repaired. #Quote by Charles Baxter
Lies quotes by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
#88. Don't feel guilty if you don't immediately love your stepchildren as you do your own, or as much as you think you should. Everyoneneeds time to adjust to the new family, adults included. There is no such thing as an "instant parent."
Actually, no concrete object lies outside of the poetic sphere as long as the poet knows how to use the object properly. #Quote by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
Lies quotes by Hirohito
#89. To strive for the common prosperity and happiness of all nations, as well as the security and wellbeing of our subjects, is the solemn obligation which has been handed down by our imperial ancestors and which lies close to our heart, #Quote by Hirohito
Lies quotes by Robert Browning
#90. Such a scribe
you pay and praise for putting life in stones,
Fire into fog, making the past your world.
There's plenty of 'How did you contrive to grasp
The thread which led you through this labyrinth?
How build such solid fabric out of air?
How on so slight foundation found this tale,
Biography, narrative?' or, in other words,
How many lies did it require to make
The portly truth you here present us with? #Quote by Robert Browning
Lies quotes by Jason Goodwin
#91. Lies beget lies," he said. "Until, one day, someone needs the truth." Palewski #Quote by Jason Goodwin
Lies quotes by S.E. Hinton
#92. I lie to myself all the time. But I never believe me. #Quote by S.E. Hinton
Lies quotes by Gabriel Chevallier
#93. There is nothing in human affairs that is a true subject for ridicule. Beneath comedy lies the ferment of tragedy; the farcical is but a cloak for coming catastrophe. #Quote by Gabriel Chevallier
Lies quotes by Kylie Mansfield
#94. Whispering Echoes, a contemporary fiction with Gothic undertones...

Death is not the greatest loss in life. The greatest loss is what dies inside us while we still live…

This is the tale of two women standing at opposite ends of the tunnel of life. Sally Donaldson is at the beginning, whilst Miss Bella Connelly , is at the end.

The story opens in the winter of 1990. Sally is a young woman on the verge of a breakdown, slowly drowning in the sorrow of an unimaginable loss. When her husband sends her to Brackenleigh Manor to recover, she encounters the unconventional healing methods of Miss Bella Connelly.

Sally quickly discovers that the manor itself harbor's its own sorrow, and the secrets that lay within the old groaning house are none other than the sad Whispering Echoes of Miss Bella Connelly's past.

The Story then shifts back to 1939 – Britain on the eve of WW2 – and reveals the secrets and lies that transform Bella, and completely change the lives of all who meet Miss Bella after.

The events that carved and marked Miss Bella's journey finally draw Sally out of her own shadows and back into life.

For it is within Miss Bella's story, that Sally learns that life has a measure that no one can count…

A measure that far outweighs Death… #Quote by Kylie Mansfield
Lies quotes by Patricia A. McKillip
#95. At its best, fantasy rewards the reader with a sense of wonder about what lies within the heart of the commonplace world. The greatest tales are told over and over, in many ways, through centuries. Fantasy changes with the changing times, and yet it is still the oldest kind of tale in the world, for it began once upon a time, and we haven't heard the end of it yet. #Quote by Patricia A. McKillip
Lies quotes by Renata Adler
#96. Though films become more daring sexually, they are probably less sexy than they ever were. There haven't been any convincing love scenes or romances in the movies in a while. (Nobody even seems to neck in theaters any more.) ... when the mechanics and sadism quotients go up, the movie love interest goes dead, and the film just lies there, giving a certain amount of offense. #Quote by Renata Adler

Lies quotes by Lauren Oliver
#98. Lies are just stories, and stories are all that matter. We all tell stories. Some are more truthful than others, maybe, but in the end the only thing that counts is what you can make people believe. #Quote by Lauren Oliver
Lies quotes by Mande Chambers
#99. No lie, secret, betrayal, or mistake will remain concealed if you have a past. #Quote by Mande Chambers
Lies quotes by Robert Green Ingersoll
#100. Tell me there is a God in the serene heavens that will damn his children for the expression of an honest belief! More men have died in their sins, judged by your orthodox creeds, than there are leaves in all the forests in the wide world ten thousand times over. Tell me these men are in Hell; that these men are in torment; that these children are in eternal pain, and that they are to be punished forever and forever! I denounce this doctrine as the most infamous of lies. #Quote by Robert Green Ingersoll
Lies quotes by Steven Furtick
#101. When your perspective is preloaded with the Word of God, lies lose their power over your life. #Quote by Steven Furtick
Lies quotes by Andrew Peterson
#102. All the things you think are important - money, power, material possessions - none of them will make you happy. There's no correlation between wealth and happiness. Absolutely none. It's one of society's biggest lies. #Quote by Andrew Peterson
Lies quotes by Lawrence Wright
#103. What is true is what is true for you. No one has any right to force data on you and command you to believe it or else. If it is not true for you, it isn't true. Think your own way through things, accept what is true for you, discard the rest. There is nothing unhappier than one who tries to live in a chaos of lies. #Quote by Lawrence Wright
Lies quotes by Helene Cixous
#104. Everyone knows that a place exists which is not economically or politically indebted to all the vileness and compromise. That is not obliged to reproduce the system. That is writing. If there is a somewhere else that can escape the infernal repetition, it lies in that direction, where it writes itself, where it dreams, where it invents new worlds. #Quote by Helene Cixous
Lies quotes by Thomas Nixon Carver
#105. Every improvement in our conceptions of justice, as well as in the machinery for the administration of justice, whereby a closer approximation to exact justice may be secured, will make for social peace, though the mere adjudication of conflicting interests will not remove the conflicts themselves nor their cause. That lies deeper than legislatures or courts can probe. #Quote by Thomas Nixon Carver
Lies quotes by Laura Ingalls Wilder
#106. The sweetness of life lies in usefulness, like honey deep in the heart of a clover bloom. #Quote by Laura Ingalls Wilder
Lies quotes by Alyson Noel
#107. It is the plight of man. And while the blame lies partly on the river " Lotus gestures towards the dark waters before us "most of the blame lies on man's inclination to tune into the noise that blares all around him instead of the beautiful silence that lies deep within. #Quote by Alyson Noel
Lies quotes by Erich Maria Remarque
#108. 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
Lies quotes by George Eliot
#109. There were intervals in which she could sit perfectly still, enjoying the outer stillness and the subdued light. The red fire with its gently audible movement seemed like a solemn existence calmly independent of the petty passions, the imbecile desires, the straining after worthless uncertainties, which were daily moving her contempt. Mary was fond of her own thoughts, and could amuse herself well sitting in the twilight with her hands in her lap; for, having early had strong reason to believe that things were not likely to be arranged for her peculiar satisfaction, she wasted no time in astonishment and annoyance at that fact. And she had already come to take life very much as a comedy in which she had a proud, nay, a generous resolution not to act the mean or treacherous part. Mary might have become cynical if she had not had parents whom she honoured, and a well of affectionate gratitude within her, which was all the fuller because she had learned to make no unreasonable claims.

She sat to-night revolving, as she was wont, the scenes of the day, her lips often curling with amusement at the oddities to which her fancy added fresh drollery: people were so ridiculous with their illusions, carrying their fools' caps unawares, thinking their own lies opaque while everybody else's were transparent, making themselves exceptions to everything, as if when all the world looked yellow under a lamp they alone were rosy. #Quote by George Eliot
Lies quotes by Apple Blossom
#110. The power of beauty
Lies within our soul
And how we choose
To see everything
It is not found from
The strokes of a make-up brush
Nor the acceptance from others #Quote by Apple Blossom
Lies quotes by Penelope Douglas
#111. You're poisonous, toxic, bad for my health. You're greedy, sly, way too stealth. You hurt me, use me, mistreat and abuse me. But your apologetic eyes, As you tell your lies, Draw me back in, And I forgive every sin. I take you back, Your love is my crack. I'm clearly a masochist, You're my personal terrorist. My tormentor, My lover, My bully, My friend. #Quote by Penelope Douglas
Lies quotes by Jodi Picoult
#112. Lies were only as strong as the suckers that believed them. #Quote by Jodi Picoult

#113. To own beauty is the first lie of it. #Quote by Chris Campanioni
Lies quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#114. In truth, nothing could be more opposed to the purely aesthetic interpretation and justification of the world which are taught in this book than the Christian teaching, which is, and wants to be, only moral and which relegates art, every art, to the realm of lies; with its absolute standards, beginning with the truthfulness of God, it negates, judges, and damns art. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Lies quotes by Stephanie Garber
#115. She'd once heard emotions and desires fueled the magic that made wishes possible. But either Scarlett didn't feel enough, or the stories she'd heard about wishes were made of lies. #Quote by Stephanie Garber
Lies quotes by Peter Benchley
#116. He would have lied to himself as facilely as an alcoholic lies to himself to justify the 10 a.m. tumbler of vodka : it may be early here, but in Baghdad it's almost evening. #Quote by Peter Benchley
Lies quotes by Deborah Harkness
#117. She will have reason in future to thank you for it," said Mary. Her face was serious. "We women own nothing absolutely, save what lies between our ears. Our virtue belongs first to our father and then to our husband. We dedicate our duty to our family. As soon as we share our thoughts with another, put pen to paper or thread a needle, all that we do and make belongs to someone else. So long as she has words and ideas, Annie will always possess something that is hers alone." "If #Quote by Deborah Harkness
Lies quotes by Maxim Gorky

Lies quotes by Nina Joshi Ramsey
#119. Change happens internally. That's where books go too. Therein lies the power. #Quote by Nina Joshi Ramsey
Lies quotes by Oliver Sacks
#120. In this, then, lies their power of understanding
understanding, without words, what is authentic or inauthentic. Thus it was the grimaces, the histrionisms, the false gestures and, above all, the false tones and cadences of the voice, which rang false for those wordless but immensely sensitive patients. It was to these (for them) most glaring, even grotesque, incongruities and improprieties that my aphasic patients responded, undeceived and undeceivable by words.
This is why they laughed at the President's speech. #Quote by Oliver Sacks
Lies quotes by Meister Eckhart
#121. A man may go into the field and say his prayer and be aware of God, or he may be in Church and be aware of God; but if he is more aware of Him because he is in a quiet place, that is his own deficiency and not due to God, Who is alike present in all things and places, and is willing to give Himself everywhere so far as lies in Him ... He knows God rightly who knows Him everywhere. #Quote by Meister Eckhart
Lies quotes by Napoleon Hill
#122. The only trouble with this world today lies in our lack of understanding of the power of imagination. #Quote by Napoleon Hill
Lies quotes by Nikki Sex
#123. Mostly, it is lies that will destroy a relationship. Deceit is a barrier to intimacy. André Chevalier #Quote by Nikki Sex
Lies quotes by Albert Schweitzer
#124. I believe that I possess this value: to serve Jesus. I am less at peace than if my goal would be to attain a professorship and a good life, but I live. And that gives me the tremendous feeling of happiness, as if one would hear music. One feels uprooted, because one asks, what lies ahead, what decisions should I make-but more alive, happier than those anchored in life. To drift with released anchor. #Quote by Albert Schweitzer
Lies quotes by Chris Cogan
#125. Reality blithely ignores the lies we tell ourselves about it. #Quote by Chris Cogan
Lies quotes by William Hooper
#126. I am proud to find, from two astronomical observations, that Chapel Hill lies right in the orbit of Jupiter and his satellites, and that the period of his revolution is about twelve years. #Quote by William Hooper
Lies quotes by Blaise Pascal
#127. Those who do not hate their own selfishness and regard themselves as more important than the rest of the world are blind because the truth lies elsewhere #Quote by Blaise Pascal
Lies quotes by Nicolas Gomez Davila
#128. Modern man's misfortune lies not in having to live a mediocre life, but in believing that he could live one that is not mediocre. #Quote by Nicolas Gomez Davila
Lies quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
#129. How many people have I heard claim their children as the greatest accomplishment and comfort of their lives? It's the thing they can always lean on during a metaphysical crisis, or a moment of doubt about their relevancy - If I have done nothing else in this life, then at least I have raised my children well.

But what if, either by choice or by reluctant necessity, you end up not participating in this comforting cycle of family and continuity? What if you step out? Where do you sit at the reunion? How do you mark time's passage without the fear that you've just fritted away your time on earth without being relevant? You'll need to find another purpose, another measure by which to judge whether or not you have been a successful human being. I love children, but what if I don't have any? What kind of person does that make me?

Virginia Woolf wrote, "Across the broad continent of a woman's life falls the shadow of a sword." On one side of that sword, she said, there lies convention and tradition and order, where "all is correct." But on the other side of that sword, if you're crazy enough to cross it and choose a life that does not follow convention, "all is confusion. Nothing follows a regular course." Her argument was that the crossing of the shadow of that sword may bring a far more interesting existence to a woman, but you can bet it will also be more perilous. #Quote by Elizabeth Gilbert
Lies quotes by Albert Einstein
#130. There lies the weaknesss of positivists and professional atheists who are elated because they feel that they have not only successfully rid the world of gods but "bared the miracles." (That is, explained the miracles. - ed.) Oddly enough, we must be satisfied to acknowledge the "miracle" without there being any legitimate way for us to approach it . I am forced to add that just to keep you from thinking that -weakened by age-I have fallen prey to the clergy ... #Quote by Albert Einstein
Lies quotes by Beryl Markham
#131. The only disadvantage in surviving a dangerous experience lies in the fact that your story of it tends to be anticlimactic. You can never carry on right through the point where whatever it is that threatens your life actually takes it
and get anybody to believe you. The world is full of sceptics. #Quote by Beryl Markham
Lies quotes by Vaclav Havel
#132. The salvation of this human world lies nowhere else than in the human heart, in the human power to reflect, in human meekness and human responsibility. #Quote by Vaclav Havel
Lies quotes by Aya Sabrine Soussi
#133. We all need something:
The blood needs the red
The sky needs the blue
The grass needs the green
The good need the best
The last needs the first
The bye needs the same
The air needs the light
The light needs the sun
The moon needs the stars
The night needs the awake
The you need the all But then you lose'em all
The lies need the truth
The love needs the care
The mom needs the son
The son needs the dad
The parents need the both In the end they disappear
The self needs the ego
The body needs the soul
The death needs the breath
The grave needs you there. #Quote by Aya Sabrine Soussi
Lies quotes by Isaac Asimov
#134. After all, all devices have their dangers. The discovery of speech introduced communication - and lies. The discovery of fire introduced cooking - and arson. The discovery of the compass improved navigation - and destroyed civilizations in Mexico and Peru. The automobile is marvelously useful - and kills Americans by the tens of thousands each year. Medical advances have saved lives by the millions - and intensified the population explosion. #Quote by Isaac Asimov
Lies quotes by Michiko Kakutani
#135. Trump's ridiculousness, his narcissistic ability to make everything about himself, the outrageousness of his lies, and the profundity of his ignorance can easily distract attention from the more lasting implications of his story: how easily Republicans in Congress enabled him, undermining the whole concept of checks and balances set in place by the founders; how a third of the country passively accepted his assaults on the Constitution; how easily Russian disinformation took root in a culture where the teaching of history and civics had seriously atrophied. #Quote by Michiko Kakutani
Lies quotes by J.B. Richards
#136. Humankind would be so bored if we already knew all the answers! The beauty of the Universe lies in our need to understand it, for that is what challenges us to acquire the knowledge and wisdom to reach great heights! #Quote by J.B. Richards
Lies quotes by Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate
#137. Beauty is only skin deep, but ugly lies to the bone. Beauty dies and fades away, but ugly holds its own! Create and cultivate Inner Beauty that never fades away but grows and matures with Time! #Quote by Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate
Lies quotes by Heinrich Heine

Lies quotes by T.V. Rao
#139. Defining Happiness in the changing world is difficult, even you find very poor people are happy with few things. Real success comes from the quality of our relationships and the emotions that we experience each day. Many unhappy feelings will
disappear if we think Have I done something today that improved the world? Have I accomplished something worthwhile?Have I helped someone less fortunate? Every Unhappy moment reduces enjoying the present moment. always think Have I felt grateful for the incredible gift of being alive? Happiness lies only with us keeping the
moments of life Happy is art, We cannot catch happiness but only follow it let us try to perfect it Dr.T.V.Rao MD #Quote by T.V. Rao
Lies quotes by John O'Donohue
#140. In everyone's life, there is great need for an anam cara, a soul friend. In this love, you are understood as you are without mask or pretension. The superficial and functional lies and half-truths of social acquaintance fall away, you can be as you really are. Love allows understanding to dawn, and understanding is precious. Where you are understood, you are at home. Understanding nourishes belonging. When you really feel understood, you feel free to release yourself into the trust and shelter of the other person's soul. This recognition is described in a beautiful line from Pablo Neruda: "You are like nobody since I love you." This art of love discloses the special and sacred identity of the other person. Love is the only light that can truly read the secret signature of the other person's individuality and soul. Love alone is literate in the world of origin; it an decipher identity and destiny. #Quote by John O'Donohue

Lies quotes by Marya Hornbacher
#142. For a long time I believed the opposite of passion was death. I was wrong. Passion and death are implicit, one in the other. Past the border of a fiery life lies the netherworld. I can trace this road, which took me through places so hot the very air burned the lungs. I did not turn back. I pressed on, and eventually passed over the border, beyond which lies a place that is wordless and cold, so cold that it, like mercury, burns a freezing blue flame. #Quote by Marya Hornbacher
Lies quotes by Eric Overby
#143. Is our closeness all smoke and mirrors,
Just a figment in my mind?
Do you know what all your in for
With a love like mine?
I can show you what lies ahead
If we leave our lives behind #Quote by Eric Overby
Lies quotes by Tracy Malone
#144. A narcissist can be your husband, wife, mother, father, sister, brother, boyfriend, girlfriend, neighbor, boss, church member or anyone you come in contact with. There is endless possibilities of "who" they can be. The important thing to remember is the actions, behaviors are all very similar. #Quote by Tracy Malone
Lies quotes by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
#145. Death takes us by surprise,
And stays our hurrying feet;
The great design unfinished lies,
Our lives are incomplete
But in the dark unknown,
Perfect their circles seem,
Even as a bridge's arch of stone
Is rounded in the stream.
Alike are life and death,
When life in death survives,
And the uninterrupted breath
Inspires a thousand lives.
Were a star quenched on high,
For ages would its light,
Still traveling downward from the sky,
Shine on our mortal sight.
So when a great man dies,
For years beyond our ken,
The light he leaves behind him lies
Upon the paths of men. #Quote by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Lies quotes by Charles F. Glassman
#146. I'd rather someone be honest and tell me something that I didn't want to hear, rather than dishonest and tell me something I want to hear. #Quote by Charles F. Glassman
Lies quotes by Erich Maria Remarque
#147. An hour passes. I sit tensely and watch his every movement in case he may perhaps say something. What if he were to open his mouth and cry out! But he only weeps, his head turned aside. He does not speak of his mother or his brothers and sisters. He says nothing; all that lies behind him; he is entirely alone now with his little life of nineteen years, and cries because it leaves him. #Quote by Erich Maria Remarque
Lies quotes by Nicholas Sparks
#148. I've been doing this a long time, and I've come to learn that predictions don't mean much. Too much lies outside the realm of medical knowledge. A lot of what happens next comes down to you and your specific genetics, your attitude. No, there's nothing we can do to stop the inevitable, but that's not the point. The point is that you should try to make the most of the time you have left. #Quote by Nicholas Sparks
Lies quotes by Neil Hilborn
#149. You told me once that you would break my heart.
I asked you not to be such a goddamn
cliché, but then you left me because part
of you was still broken. You say some man

pried open the cracks of you, dug holes where
once there were none, so now you just cannot
love me how I deserve, and darling, therein
lies the problem: you can you can you can

you can you can you can you can you can.
Your reasons why are no good reasons why.
We said we should not fall in love and then
we showed each other our most quiet

scars: my wrists, your upper thighs, and now you say
this too easily: you say you cannot stay. #Quote by Neil Hilborn
Lies quotes by Arundhati Roy
#150. ... he remained restrained and strangely composed. It was a composure born of extreme provocation. It stemmed from a lucidity that lies beyond rage. #Quote by Arundhati Roy
Lies quotes by Zadie Smith
#151. We are split people. For myself, half of me wishes to sit quietly with legs crossed, letting the things that are beyond my control wash over me. But the other half wants to fight a holy war. Jihad! And certainly we could argue this out in the street, but I think, in the end, your past is not my past and your truth is not my truth and your solution
it is not my solution. So I do not know what it is you would like me to say. Truth and firmness is one suggestion, though there are many people you can ask if that answer does not satisfy. Personally, my hope lies in the last days. The prophet Muhammad
peace be upon Him!
tells us that on the Day of Resurrection everyone will be struck unconscious. Deaf and dumb. No chitchat. Tongueless. And what a bloody relief that will be. #Quote by Zadie Smith
Lies quotes by Meg Cabot
#152. My life is a convoluted web of lies. #Quote by Meg Cabot
Lies quotes by Epictetus
#153. As for us, we behave like a herd of deer. When they flee from the huntsman's feathers in affright, which way do they turn? What haven of safety do they make for? Why, they rush upon the nets! And thus they perish by confounding what they should fear with that wherein no danger lies. . . . Not death or pain is to be feared, but the fear of death or pain. Well said the poet therefore: -

Death has no terror; only a Death of shame! #Quote by Epictetus
Lies quotes by Maryanne Wolf
#154. There are few more powerful mirrors of the human brain's astonishing ability to rearrange itself to learn a new intellectual function than the act of reading. Underlying the brain's ability to learn reading lies its protean capacity to make new connections among structures and circuits originally devoted to other more basic brain processes that have enjoyed a longer existence in human evolution, such as vision and spoken language. [...] we come into the world programmed with the capacity to change what is given to us by nature, so that we can go beyond it. We are, it would seem from the start, genetically poised for breakthroughs. #Quote by Maryanne Wolf
Lies quotes by Frederick Lenz
#155. The art of love is to embrace the world and that which lies beyond it. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Lies quotes by David Foster Wallace
#156. Some people, from what I've seen, boo, when they lie, they become very still and centered and their gaze very concentrated and intense. They try to dominate the person they lie to. The person to whom they're lying. Another type becomes fluttery and insubstantial and punctuates his lie with little self-deprecating motions and sounds, as if credulity were the same as pity. Some bury the lie in so many digressions and asides that they like try to slip the lie in there through all the extraneous data like a tiny bug through a windowscreen ... Then there are what I might call your Kamikaze-style liars. These'll tell you a surreal and fundamentally incredible lie, and then pretend a crisis of conscience and retract the original lie, and then offer you the like they really want you to buy instead, so the real lie'll appear a some kind of concession, a settlement with through. That type's mercifully easy to see through ... Or then the type who sort of overelaborates on the lie, buttresses it with rococo formations of detail and amendment, and that's how you can always tell ... So Now I've established a subtype of the over-elaborator type. This is the liar who used to be an over-elaborator and but has somehow snapped to the fact that rococo elaborations give him away every time, so he changes and now lies tersely, sparely, seeming somehow bored, like what he's saying is too obviously true to waste time on. #Quote by David Foster Wallace

Lies quotes by Terence McKenna
#158. Meaning lies in the confrontation of contradiction - the coincidencia apositorum. That's what we really feel, not these rational schemes that are constantly beating us over the head with the "thou shalts" and "thou should", but rather a recovery of the real ambiguity of being and an ability to see ourselves as at once powerful and weak, noble and ignoble, future-oriented, past-facing. #Quote by Terence McKenna
Lies quotes by Alain De Botton
#159. Perhaps because the origins of a certain kind of love lie in an impulse to escape ourselves and out weaknesses by an alliance with the beautiful and noble. But if the loved ones love us back, we are forced to return to ourselves, and are hence reminded of the things that had driven us into love in the first place. Perhaps it was not love we wanted after all, perhaps it was simply someone in whom to believe, but how can we continue to believe the the beloved now that they believe in us? #Quote by Alain De Botton
Lies quotes by Julie Johnson
#160. It might've started as a lie, Faith, but it sure as hell didn't end as one. I might not have been real to you, and that's fine. But you have to know ... you were real to me." His voice dropped so low I could barely hear him. "It was real to me. It's still real. The realest fucking thing I've ever felt. #Quote by Julie Johnson
Lies quotes by Ken Starr
#161. Lying under oath, and encouraging lies under oath, does go to the very heart and soul of what courts do. If we say we don't care, let's forget about courts, and we'll just have other ways of figuring out how to handle disputes. #Quote by Ken Starr
Lies quotes by Philip Reeve

Lies quotes by Andrew Carnegie
#164. I have never known a concern to make a decided success that did not do good, honest work, and even in these days of fiercest competition, when everything would seem to be a matter of price, there lies still at the root of great business success the very much more important factor of quality. The effect of attention to quality, upon every man in the service, from the president of the concern down to the humblest laborer, cannot be overestimated. #Quote by Andrew Carnegie
Lies quotes by Marquis De Sade

Lies quotes by John McLaughlin
#166. If I can get out of the way, if I can be pure enough, if I can be selfless enough, and if I can be generous and loving and caring enough to abandon what I have in my own preconceived silly notions of what I think I am - and become truly who in fact I am, which is really just another child of God - then the music can really use me. And therein lies my fulfillment. That's when the music starts to happen. #Quote by John McLaughlin
Lies quotes by Anonymous
#167. The wicked conceive evil; they are pregnant with trouble and give birth to lies. 15 They dig a deep pit to trap others, then fall into it themselves. 16 The trouble they make for others backfires on them. The violence they plan falls on their own heads. 17 I will thank the LORD because he is just; I will sing praise to the name of the LORD Most High. #Quote by Anonymous

Lies quotes by William S Lind
#170. At the heart of this phenomenon, Fourth Generation war,4 lies not a military evolution but a political, social, and moral revolution: a crisis of legitimacy of the state. All over the world, citizens of states are transferring their primary allegiance away from the state to other entities: to tribes, ethnic groups, religions, gangs, ideologies, and "causes." Many people who will no longer fight for their state are willing to fight for their new primary loyalty. #Quote by William S Lind

Lies quotes by Joseph S. Pulver Sr.
#179. Off the street. Out of the wind. Into a bar . . . like a million other bars . . . bottles of lies to ease pain . . . dollar bills traded to dose the dreams of hungry eyes . . . men transmuted from dust . . . women knitted from dead tomorrows, legs crossed, the language of their painted smiles ready to find the other side open . . . #Quote by Joseph S. Pulver Sr.
Lies quotes by Joseph Campbell
#180. Half the people in the world think that the metaphors of their religious traditions, for example, are facts. And the other half contends that they are not facts at all. As a result we have people who consider themselves believers because they accept metaphors as facts, and we have others who classify themselves as atheists because they think religious metaphors are lies. #Quote by Joseph Campbell
Lies quotes by Bryant McGill
#181. The acceptable is unacceptable. The truth is a lie. The good is pure evil. Even freedom has become a prison. #Quote by Bryant McGill
Lies quotes by Marcel Proust
#182. He knew that the very memory of the piano falsified still further the perspective in which he saw the elements of music, that the field open to the musician is not a miserable stave of seven notes, but an immeasurable keyboard (still almost entirely unknown) on which, here and there only, separated by the thick darkness of its unexplored tracts, some few among the millions of keys of tenderness, of passion, of courage, of serenity, which compose it, each one differing from all the rest as one universe differs from another, have been discovered by a few great artists who do us the service, when they awaken in us the emotion corresponding to the theme they have discovered, of showing us what richness, what variety lies hidden, unknown to us, in that vast, unfathomed and forbidding night of our soul which we take to be an impenetrable void. #Quote by Marcel Proust
Lies quotes by Irvin D. Yalom
#183. You say that imperishable happiness lies elsewhere. Tell me about this 'elsewhere.'" "I only know that it does not lie in perishable objects. It lies not outside but within. It is the mind that determines what is fearful, worthless, desirable, or priceless, and therefore it is the mind, and only the mind, that must be altered." "What #Quote by Irvin D. Yalom
Lies quotes by Don DeLillo

Lies quotes by Elizabeth Chandler

Lies quotes by Sherwood Anderson
#186. I think the whole glory of writing lies in the fact that it forces us out of ourselves and into the lives of others. #Quote by Sherwood Anderson
Lies quotes by J.D. Vance
#187. We'll get fired for tardiness, or for stealing merchandise and selling it on eBay, or for having a customer complain about the smell of alcohol on our breath, or for taking five thirty-minute restroom breaks per shift. We talk about the value of hard work but tell ourselves that the reason we're not working is some perceived unfairness: Obama shut down the coal mines, or all the jobs went to the Chinese. These are the lies we tell ourselves to solve the cognitive dissonance - the broken connection between the world we see and the values we preach. We #Quote by J.D. Vance
Lies quotes by Wendell Phillips
#188. Do not take the yardstick of your ignorance to measure what the ancients knew, and call everything which you do not know lies. Do not call things untrue because they are marvelous, but give them a fair consideration. #Quote by Wendell Phillips
Lies quotes by Brian Basilico
#189. Social networking can also have a negative effect on relationships when you only treat people as potential sales. The responsibility to build a relationship lies with you and depends on how you choose to use social media. #Quote by Brian Basilico
Lies quotes by Miguel Ruiz
#190. Your nature is to love; remember your nature. If you are acting against your nature, you're pretending to be another species. You've pretended so long that you actually are another species. Awareness means seeing, and remembering, the truth - it never went away. It never was gone, but your attention has been on the lies. #Quote by Miguel Ruiz
Lies quotes by Patrick Rothfuss
#191. I don't mind being called a liar. I am. I am a marvelous liar. But I hate being called a liar when I´m telling the perfect truth. #Quote by Patrick Rothfuss
Lies quotes by Sylvia Day
#192. Let the world talk and spread lies. We knew what we had. It didnt need to be qualified, justified or expressed. #Quote by Sylvia Day
Lies quotes by Carian Cole
#193. Loving me will not be easy, loving me will be war.
You will hold the gun and I will hand you the bullets.
So breathe, and embrace the beauty of the massacre that lies ahead.
- R.M. Drake #Quote by Carian Cole
Lies quotes by Joyce Tenneson
#194. I seek what lies beneath surface beauty. What interests me are intimate human complexities - the darkness as well as the light. I cannot will this kind of transcendent communication into existence. I have to be open and truly present, and if I am lucky, grace descends. My best photographs are an honest collaboration, and when the viewer also connects, I feel the circle is complete. #Quote by Joyce Tenneson
Lies quotes by Henry Louis Gates
#195. I rebel at the notion that I can't be part of other groups, that I can't construct identities through elective affinity, that race must be the most important thing about me. Is that what I want on my gravestone: Here lies an African American? #Quote by Henry Louis Gates
Lies quotes by Mark Twain
#196. It is full of interest, it has noble poetry in it and some clever fables and some blood drenched history, some good morals and a wealth of obscenity and upwards of a thousand lies.
(Re The Bible) #Quote by Mark Twain
Lies quotes by Gabriel Boutros
#197. Lies don't become truth just because everybody believes them." Face/Mask #Quote by Gabriel Boutros
Lies quotes by Mark Hodder
#198. Here lies the body of Colonel Cornell's. The rest of the fellow, I fancy, in hell is. #Quote by Mark Hodder
Lies quotes by Sapana Bhandari
#199. I find myself somehow different
My eyes running in his presence
His walk as if he was drunk
Neither day nor night, the moments were somewhere tonight
Still unknown where his soul was
Just thinking about him today onwards

My soul says he needs me
In my absence he cries behind me
My presence makes him peaceful
As if I remain in his soul

Till my heart the love is tied
His eyes unfolding every lies
Say my friends are we made for life?! #Quote by Sapana Bhandari
Lies quotes by Bernard Cornwell
#200. Folk tell their children that success lies in working hard and being thrifty, but that is as much nonsense as supposing that a badger, a fox and a wolf could build a church. The way to wealth is to become a Christian bishop or a monastery's abbot and thus be imbued with heaven's permission to lie, cheat and steal your way to luxury. #Quote by Bernard Cornwell
