A Quote by Clare Boothe Luce on creativity, deed, egotism, facts, idealism, lies, nature, nobility, romance, speech, and words

Lying increases the creative faculties, expands the ego, lessens the friction of social contacts. . . . It is only in lies, wholeheartedly and bravely told, that human nature attains through words and speech the forebearance, the nobility, the romance, the idealism, that-being what it is-it falls so short of in fact and in deed.

Clare Boothe Luce (1903 - 1987)
