100 Words, 100 Days: Day 68. On Lying.

Lies are bad things, right? Honesty is the best policy; the truth will always come out, and lies will always catch up with you. Bear no false witness against your neighbour no matter how many times he leaves his rubbish in your garden.

The truth is, truth has its place. Lies have their places, too. As Dr House would say, “Everybody lies.” I lie, you lie, your government lies (no surprise there). But if we were to be truly moral, lying wouldn’t come into the equation. Not even to save someone’s life.

Too much truth can be dangerous too, though.

  1. I don’t lie…I tell partial truths:) Like recognizing a change…”Hey, you got your hair cut.” (Didn’t say I liked it) lol

  2. If one tells the truth all of the time, one doesn’t have as much to remember. At my age, that is a definite plus.
