dishonesty

A Quote by Ayn Rand on evil, dishonesty, and virtue

Then no rightful cause was left, and the pain of anger was turning into the shameful pain of submission.  He had no right to condemn anyone - he thought - to denounce anything, to fight and die joyously, claiming the sanctity of virtue.  The broken promises, the unconfessed desires, the betrayal, the deceit, the lies, the fraud - he was guilty of them all.  What form of corruption could he scorn?  Degrees do not matter, he thought; one does not bargain about inches of evil.

A Quote by Ayn Rand on honesty, liars, lies, dishonesty, and victims

People think that a liar gains a victory over his victim.  What I've learned is that a lie is an act of self-abdication, because one surrenders one's reality to the person to whom one lies, making that person one's master, condemning oneself from then on to faking the sort of reality that person's view requires to be faked.  And if one gains the immediate purpose of the lie - the price one pays is the destruction of that which was intended to serve.  The man who lies to the world, is the world's slave from then on
