There are no 'perfect liars' in the world; there are only 'perfect believers' who believe in even the most obvious lies!
This was our language: half-truths, obvious lies, accusations neither one of us would ever make. It was a system eery bit as complicated as Morse code or the dancing of bees. Don't ask, don't tell, stay civil.
The secret of all victory lies in the organization of the non-obvious.

When witnesses concoct lies, they often miss the obvious.
It's obvious that things aren't going well over there. This is a war based on lies.
The chief value of the rule lies in preventing an immediate and obvious but inferior good from replacing a longer-range, less obvious but superior one.
Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.
Thomas A. Edison
When it is obvious that the goals cannot be reached, don't adjust the goals, adjust the action steps.
