A Quote by unknown on truth and lies

in

A truth's initial commotion is directly proportionalto how deeply the lie was believed.
 When a well packaged web of lies has been sold gradually to the masses over generation's,
 truth will seem utterly preposterous and it's speaker a raving lunatic.

A Quote by Guy Kawasaki on market, business, entrepreneurship, entrepreneurs, and lies

“(Big name research firm) says our market will be $50 billion in 2010.” Every entrepreneur has a few slides about how the market potential for his segment is tens of billions. It doesn't matter if the product is bar mitzah planning software or 802.11 chip sets. Venture capitalists don't believe this type of forecast because it's the fifth one of this magnitude that they've heard that day. Entrepreneurs would do themselves a favor by simply removing any reference to market size estimates from consulting firms.

A Quote by Rudyard Kipling on courage, dreaming, hate, forgiveness, trust, truth, patience, lies, triumph, disaster, and perseverance

If you can keep your head when all about you
   Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
   But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
   Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
   And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:

If you can dream -- and not make dreams your master;
   If you can think -- and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
   And treat those two imposters just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
   Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
   And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools:

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
   And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
   And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
   To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
   Except the Will which says to them: "Hold on!"

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
   Or walk with Kings -- nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
   If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
   With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
   And -- which is more -- you'll be a Man, my son!

Rudyard Kipling (1865 - 1936)

A Quote by Raphie on belief, lies, believable fiction, and unbelievable truth

The believeable fiction is far more likely to be believed than the unbelievable truth. As often as not, then, we lie not to deceive, but to be believed.
