Lies beget other lies. Unlike statements of fact, which require no further work on our part, lies must be continually protected from collisions with reality.

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. [...] The man who lies to the world, is the world`s slave from then on.
