Die Wahrheit zu sagen, wenn die Unwahrheit herrscht, ist mit so viel Vergnügen gemischt, dass der Mensch ihretwegen das Exil, ja noch Schlimmeres erwählt.

"To speak the truth, when the lie rules, is mixed with so much joy, that the person will for its sake choose exile or even worse."

- Nietzsche, notebooks, fall 1876

I stopped telling lies a long time ago. I couldn't remember which lies I had told which people so I just said "to hell with it" and started telling the truth. Some people didn't like it and wanted me to return to lying. I refused.
