"Always speak your mind and base men will avoid you."
"Respect for the truth comes close to being the basis for all morality."
"While you live tell, tell truth and shame the devil."
"When every person learns to speak the Truth, a complete salvation will come to the world."
"If you tell the truth you don't have to remember anything."
"Always tell the truth, not only because it is the decent thing to do, but because it gives you such an advantage over the man who is trying to remember his lies!"
"At a time of universal deceit - telling the truth is a revolutionary act."
"THE ONLY WAY YOU CAN CONTROL
PEOPLE IS TO LIE TO THEM."
"You can write that down in your book in great big letters. The only way you can control anybody is to lie to them. When you find an individual is lying to you, you know that the individual is trying to control you. One way or another this individual is trying to control you. That is the mechanism of control. Conversely, if you see an impulse on the part of a human being to control you, you know very well that that human being is lying to you. Not is going to, but is lying to you.
Check these facts, you will find they are always true. That person who is trying to control you is lying to you. He's got to tell you lies in order to continue control, because the second you start telling anybody close to the truth, you start releasing him and he gets tougher and tougher to control. So, you can't control somebody without telling them a bunch of lies."
