So many reasons so few worthy of us. But maybe they are all worthy of us because this is our nature. To lie to cover up our true intentions; our embarrassment; our mistakes; purposely to mislead; to make money; to keep lovers; to maintain others’ views of us; to protect someone else.
Lies are our own camouflage every bit as useful as those used in war. Better than clothes which wear out, the facade we create with lies even fools us. For with every lie we give,we lie to ourselves as well. With every lie we try to redraw the Universe to our own version of it and we fail, but we often fool.
As a wise person said, you can go anywhere with lies but you can never go back.
A Brief History Of Lies will be published on 14th February 2010.
