Lying - Acceptable In Certain Circumstances ?

DestinyCalls815DestinyCalls815

Following on from Rupz Thread about being lied to,

Do any of you think it is acceptable to lie under certain circumstances,

to make people feel better about themselves, or just to make them feel better ?

    For personal gain no. But to spare someone's feelings possibly yes depending on the situation. But I'm a terrible liar.

    Lying to get any woman into bed is totally acceptable imo.

    Everyone lies multiple times throughout everyday

    I try and lie as little as possible but if I have to make a little white lie to con the pension money from an old fart then so be it

    You know, when I was younger I used to lie a lot, which was a lot to do low self esteem and lack of money... But now that im older, wiser and a billionaire philanthropist with a fleet of Ferraris and a bevvy of beauties, I don't feel the need to lie any more. :)

    A lie would have no sense unless the truth were felt to be dangerous

    The trust of the innocent is the liar's most useful tool

    Truth travels slowly and gets weaker as it goes. Lies are strong and pick up speed as they go


    I'm not upset that you lied to me, I'm upset that from now on I can't believe you

    The naked truth is always better than the best dressed lie


    It is easier to believe a lie that one has heard a thousand times than to believe a fact that no one has heard before

    The liar's punishment is not in the least that he is not believed, but that he cannot believe anyone else

    A lie never lives to be old.

    O.K. to lie to your wife e.g. I was thinking about you all day today. (when you didn't think about her even for a second coz you had a busy day) I miss you so much (when your absolutely fine really)
    -you are a peace maker and will be loved for it and it is virtuous.

    Never lie about more serious things then you are a lier and nothing but a lier and it is a big wrong.

    Watch the movie "the invention of lying" and you will see the answer is clearly yes. A world with no lies would be a terrible terrible place.

    Imagine a fat ugly man tells you he is going to kill himself because he has nothing to live for and then asked for your opinion, whilst you may agree with him would you actually tell him he was right and that he should do it?

    I can't lie, I am hopeless at it.

    The trouble is, I am often frowned upon for being too honest. I call a spade a spade regardless of who I am talking to and tend not to say things diplomatically.

    I used to think this was a great trait however as I get older I realize I must have upset an awful amount of people with my honesty over the years. I try to think more carefully how I word things now and if I think I may upset someone, I say nothing.
