Clare Boothe Luce
WORDS ABOUT WORDS
Lying increases the creative faculties, expands the ego, lessens the friction of social contacts...It is only in lies, wholeheartedly and bravely told, that human nature attains through words and speech the forebearance, the nobility, the romance, the idealism, thatbeing what it isit falls so short of in fact and in deed.
Clare Boothe Luce, Vanity Fair
