The visionary lies to himself, the liar only to others.
The only thing worse than a liar is a liar that's also a hypocrite! There are only two great currents in the history of mankind: the baseness which makes conservatives and the envy which makes revolutionaries.
The loss of certainty of truth has ended in a new, entirely unprecedented zeal for truthfulness - as though man could afford to be a liar only so long as he was certain of the unchallengable existence of truth and objective reality, which surely would survive and defeat all his lies.
The worst sort of hypocrite and liar is the man who lies to himself in order to feel at ease.
A liar is not believed even though he tell the truth.
