Still More Lies

‘In my opinion the truth, so called, is a much overrated quantity. The trouble with it is that it is closed: when you tell the truth, that’s the end of it; lies, on the other hand, ramify in all sorts of unexpected directions; complicting things, knotting them up in themselves, thickening the texture of life… To lie is to create’ (John Banville, Ghosts)
