Truth is often the favorite tool of those who deceive.
One who deceives will always find those who allow themselves to be deceived.
Even though we are deceived, still believe. Though we are betrayed, still forgive. Love completely even those who hate you.
The senses deceive from time to time, and it is prudent never to trust wholly those who have deceived us even once.
Men wholly bent on wordly treasures were the dupes of their own passions, rather than deceived by the writings or pretenses of those who claimed to be Alchemists.
Those who think their intellect will keep them from deception are already deceived.
The rule seems to be that those who find no difficulty in deceiving themselves are easily deceived by others. They are easily persuaded and led.
Those who seek education in the paths of duty are always deceived by the illusion that power in the hands of friends is an advantage to them.
It is more shameful to distrust our friends than to be deceived by them.
Those who can't do, teach!
Who loves, raves.
