Just Tell the Truth

I read an article over the weekend that got me thinking about how often people lie and I remembered this Mark Twain quote that my dad would use with me when I was a little kid and just learning about how important it is to just tell the truth:

“Always tell the truth. That way, you don’t have to remember what you said.” – Mark Twain

He’s a couple of other good quotes in regards to lies that I think speak volumes:

“He who permits himself to tell a lie once, finds it much easier to do it a second and third time, till at length it becomes habitual.” – Thomas Jefferson

“Falsehood is easy, truth so difficult.” – George Eliot

“I never lie because I don’t fear anyone. You only lie when you’re afraid.” – John Gotti
