The Armor of The Fury

 

A lie can travel halfway around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes.

Mark Twain

 

 

 

Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear - not absence of fear.

Mark Twain

 

Never hold discussions with the monkey when the organ grinder is in the room.

Sir Winston Churchill

 

One ought never to turn one's back on a threatened danger and try to run away from it. If you do that, you will double the danger. But if you meet it promptly and without flinching, you will reduce the danger by half.

Sir Winston Churchill

 

Liars when they speak the truth are not believed.

Aristotle (384 BC - 322 BC), from Diogenes Laertius, Lives of Eminent Philosophers

 

False words are not only evil in themselves, but they infect the soul with evil.

Plato (427 BC - 347 BC), Dialogues, Phaedo

 

A liar should have a good memory.

Quintilian, De Institutione Oratoria

 

Oh what a tangled web we weave,
When first we practise to deceive!

Sir Walter Scott (1771 - 1832), Marmion, Canto vi. Stanza 17.

"Anasazi", "Paper Clip" & "The Blessing Way"
