The truths that matter most to us come always half spoken.- Baltasar Gracián
Cunning grows in deceit at seeing itself discovered, and tries to deceive with truth itsel- Baltasar Gracián
The best way to find out if you can trust somebody is to trust them.- Ernest Hemingway
The first casualty when war comes is truth.- Hiram Johnson
The pure and simple truth is rarely pure and never simple.- Oscar Wilde
