Mujib [Rahman], as you've seen, is a congenital liar. He can't help telling lies - it's something stronger than he.
Everything starts with a lie and ends with an apology.
I sort of consider myself a comedic actress, not a comedienne. I think it's different. You know, I'm not a stand-up or anything, but playing into comedic situations is sort of where, I think, my strength lies.
There's thieves among us Painting the walls All kinds of lies , and lies I never told it all
The average person tells a few white lies.
It's very rare that you get a part that you actually like. People have a misconception, whether it be because actors lie or because you're reading interviews from giantly, massively famous actors, but you don't just get offered parts, all the time. You actually have to work to get them.
I've been an audience member for friends in plays that I don't enjoy and I have to lie to their faces. It's just part of that lifestyle unfortunately, especially in New York.
You always have to lie. I've been in plays that people don't enjoy and I pray that they lie to my face when I come outside.
If you keep hiding your true self, your life becomes like slow death. Once you become free from the lies and the hiding of yourself, then life becomes vibrant again.
The roots of our ecological crises are axiomatic: they lie in our belief and value structures which shape our relationship with nature, with each other and the lifestyles we lead.
The difference does not lie in the things that news does that novels do not do, but in the things that novels do that news cannot do. In other words, this basic technique of news - just one among many - is something a novel can use, but a novel can deploy a multitude of other techniques also. Novels are not bound by the rules of reportage. Far from it. They're predicated on delivering experience.
Your preciousness lies in your essence; it cannot be lost by anything that happens.
To regard the fundamental as the essence, to regard things as coarse, to regard accumulation as deficiency, and to dwell quietly alone with the spiritual and the intelligent - herein lie the techniques of Tao of the ancients.
Men honor what lies within the sphere of their knowledge, but do not realize how dependent they are on what lies beyond it.
Even if a minefield or the abyss should lie before me, I will march straight ahead without looking back.
People are stupid; given proper motivation, almost anyone will believe almost anything. BecauHse people are stupid, they will believe a lie because they want to believe it's true, or because they are afraid it might be true.
I arise full of eagerness and energy, knowing well what achievement lies ahead of me.
Find your major flaw. There lies your glory.

In light of Jamey [Rodemeyer]'s death - it became clear to me in an instant that living a gay life without publicly acknowledging it - is simply not enough to make any significant contribution to the immense work that lies ahead on the road to complete equality.
I'm a big believer in the notion that our greatest potential lies in our darkest parts. To a certain extent it's only in facing those parts of ourselves that we can truly grow, and I think that's true of all of the characters I've played, certainly in the past few years.
As much as I try to grow as a lyricist, I tend to laugh at even calling myself that, because I think that my actual talents lie more in arrangements than they do words.
The future of Yosemite climbing lies not in Yosemite, but in using the new techniques in the great granite ranges of the world.
Just why is Yosemite climbing so different ? Why does it have techniques, ethics and equipment all of its own ? The basic reason lies in the rock itself. Nowhere else in the world is the rock so exfoliated, so glacier-polished and so devoid of handholds. All of the climbing lines follow vertical crack systems. Every piton crack, every handhold is a vertical one. Special techniques and equipment have evolved through absolute necessity.
On the acting side, they actually tell us to lie about things that we don't know and later scramble to learn. "Do you ride horses?" "Yes, I do." I think scrambling is the death of most of us in the industry.
Plausibility is a trap for the truth laid by lies.
Even if you lie to me...that's okay. I'll be satisfied with as much of yourself as you can give me.
Nobody even imagines how well one can lie about the state of one's own heart.
Beyond doubt, there was a certain splendor in pain, which bore a deep affinity to the splendor that lies hidden within strength.
A father is a reality-concealing machine, a machine for dishing up lies to kids, and that isn't even the worst of it: secretly he believes that he represents reality.
I shall not be deterred by people who don't see where the future of Africa lies. It is the short-sighted people who put their opinions in writing. They don't understand that the future of all countries lies in processing.
In politics, sometimes you have to lie, or you make a promise that you cannot keep.
A kid who has just started to lie is taking the first step as a storyteller.
As things stand now the feudal lords are content to look on while the shogunate carries on in a highhanded manner. Neither the lords nor the shogun can be depended upon, and so our only hope lies in grass-roots heroes.
It seems hopeless, hopeless. Those who eat meat [at public expense] are a mean, selfish lot, and so the country is doomed. Our only hope lies in the grass-roots folk who eat our traditional food.
Within our perceived weaknesses and imperfections lies the key to realizing our true strength.
— Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche
Faces can lie. Backsides can't.
You can say that designing is quite easy; the difficulty lies in finding a new way to explore beauty
Clothing doesn't lie, it shows everything.
