That one American farmer can now feed himself and fifty-six other people may be, within the narrow view of the specialist, a triumph of technology; by no stretch of reason can it be considered a triumph of agriculture or of culture. It has been made possible by the substitution of energy for knowledge, of methodology...
Deception and privileged secrets are common facets of politics.
Oh, what a tangled web we weave…when first we practice to deceive.
It really comes down to greed and deception and finger-pointing,
The thing is, Ms. Embers, they aren’t exactly on our side.
Just because a man is dressed in a clean white robe does not mean his heart and hands are clean. Any man who neglects his conscience is a dangerous animal. Never judge a man by his image. Images can be bought or produced by any Hollywood producer, marketing team or fleet of stylists. Even kids...
Together we agree that there are few tableaus more pathetic than a woman poring over a plethora of self-help books, while in a small café across town her husband is sharing a bottle of Pouilly-Fuissé and fettucini Alfredo with a beautiful woman, fondling her fishnet knee and making careful plans to escape his life.
Anything someone gets conned into will never be that great.
It wasn’t a deception: all lovers live on partial knowledge.
Betrayal and dishonor is usually an inside job. Keep it ‘sucka-free’, loved one!
This explained to me–and I suppose, forgave me–my inability to see the face of this man, because whoever must deceive us in order to live will by necessity far exceed the skill of ordinary men, who are as much tempted by the desire to be honest as they are plagued by guilt and shame when...
i have to love myself more than i love him, in order to leave him.
Unlike grown ups, children have little need to deceive themselves.
The power of His gentleness..In the Eye of Deception – This is my story.
The setting sun burned the sky pink and orange in the same bright hues as surfers’ bathing suits. It was beautiful deception, Bosch thought, as he drove north on the Hollywood Freeway to home. Sunsets did that here. Made you forget it was the smog that made their colors so brilliant, that behind every pretty...
You just sit there and tolerate it, the same way everything in this country is tolerated. Every deception, every lie, every bullet in the brains. Just as you are already tolerating bullets in the brains that will be implemented only after the bullet is put in your brains.
Men lie to get laid, women lie about orgasms, and hermaphrodites lie to themselves.
The final portrait is often furthest from the truth.
…I wanted to remove,my diamond earrings,for I felt they were,weighing a little heavy.I wanted to remove my heels,for I felt they were,taking me a little,above the ground,than I needed to be.I wanted to,throw away my blazer,for it was too much,of a thick layer,to what I am deep inside.” (Poem- Unambitious, Book- Ginger and Honey)
87.—Men would not live long in society were they not the dupes of each other. [A maxim, adds Aimé Martin, “Which may enter into the code of a vulgar rogue, but one is astonished to find it in a moral treatise.” Yet we have scriptural authority for it: “Deceiving and being deceived.”—2 TIM. iii. 13.]
It’s amazing how people come to you griping about other individuals. However, you sometimes hear them out, and you sympathise with them. You observe them, and you see the exceptional thing they are complaining about. Yes! Beyond pleasantness is hypocrisy/deception. These and more, are the reasons why I like to understand human behaviour. Its complexity...
A man must be honest enough to make mistakes, if not he’s just lying to you
Don’t be stuck in a life that’s not yours just because of a bad habit
