Some scribbles in a journal that Gallant mused over about 20 years ago. How time flies:
- Appearances - A good man often appears gauche simply because he does not take advantage of the myriad mean little chances of making himself look stylish. Preferrring truth to form, he is not constantly at work upon the facade of his appearance.
- “In Vino Veritas” - In wine truth.
- An artist must know how to convince others of the truth of his lies.
- Flattery makes friends and truth makes enemies.
- One should never put on one’s best clothing when going out to battle for freedom and truth.
- And, after all, what is a lie? ‘Tis but the truth in masquerade.
- It is always the best policy to speak the truth, unless of course you are an exceptionally good liar.
- It takes two to speak the truth - one to speak, and another to hear.
- Telling the truth to people who misunderstand you is generally promoting falsehood.
- A truth that’s told with bad intent
Beats all the lies you can invent.
- The terrible thing about the quest for truth is that you find it.
- Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing had happened.
- The truth would become more popular if it were not always stating ugly facts.
