In Time of Deceit
Above all, don’t lie to yourself. The man who lies to himself and listens to his own lie comes to a point that he cannot distinguish the truth within him, or around him, and so loses all respect for himself and for others. And having no respect he ceases to love.
– Fyodor Dostoyevsky –
In a time of deceit telling the truth is a revolutionary act.
– George Orwell –
The unexamined life is not worth living.
– Socrates –
