It is that old ideas are seldom entirely false, but have truth, great truth in them.

Dr. Dale E. Turner

But again the practical question is, how much lying for private profit is to be permitted by law? Carl L. Becker
Sometimes I lie awake at night, and I ask, Where have I gone wrong? Then a voice says to me, This is going to take more than one night. Charles M. Schulz, Charlie Brown in "Peanuts"
