Lies Quotes A-Z by Author|
It really is my opinion that media in general
are so bad that we have to question whether
the world wouldn't be better off without
them altogether. They are so distortive
to how the world actually is that the result
is.. we see wars, and we see corrupt governments
Assange - Media
One of the hopeful things that Ive
discovered is that nearly every war that
has started in the past 50 years has been
a result of media lies. The media could've
stopped it if they had searched deep enough;
if they hadn't reprinted government propaganda
they could've stopped it.
Assange - Media
You have to start with the truth. The truth
is the only way that we can get anywhere.
Because any decision-making that is based
upon lies or ignorance can't lead to a good
Assange - Truth
It's not enough to rage against the lie..
you've got to replace it with the truth.
The notion that somehow or another theyll
(Iran) put it in a picnic basket and hand
it to some terrorist group is merely an
argument that may be convincing to some
people who don't know anything about nuclear
dont find that argument very credible,
Im not sure that people who make it
even believe in it. But its a good
argument to make if you have no other argument
to make. The fact of the matter is, Iran
has been around for 3000 years, and that
is not a symptom of a suicidal instinct.
Brzezinski - Geopolitics
A nation can survive its fools, and even
the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason
from within. An enemy at the gates is less
formidable, for he is known and carries
his banner openly. But the traitor moves
amongst those within the gate freely, his
sly whispers rustling through all the alleys,
heard in the very halls of government itself.
For the traitor appears not a traitor; he
speaks in accents familiar to his victims,
and he wears their face and their arguments,
he appeals to the baseness that lies deep
in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul
of a nation, he works secretly and unknown
in the night to undermine the pillars of
the city, he infects the body politic so
that it can no longer resist. A murderer
is less to fear.
Tullius Cicero - Fool
You find actually over the years that you
get attributed with a lot of things you
didn't do and you don't get reported on
a lot of things you did do and I must say,
when I read some of these things I wonder
where the journalists get them from. They
generally speak to somebody who's spoken
to somebody who was down the back of a pub
who heard the barman say, and gradually
finds its way into magazines or articles
but no, that's not the case.
Costello - Journalism
Harshness to me is giving somebody false
hopes and not following through. Thats
harsh. Telling some guy or some girl whove
got zero talent that they have zero talent
actually is a kindness.
Cowell - Mean
Religion is about turning untested belief
into unshakable truth through the power
of institutions and the passage of time.
Dawkins - Religion
I see myself as a climate change skeptic
and a skeptic looks at the evidence and
bases conclusions on the evidence rather
than on belief. To hold the view that this
is not an issue that you need to do something
about, to hold the view that its all
a furphy takes belief.
Garnaut - Facts
Change - Ignorance
Everybody in politics lies, but they do
it with such ease, it's troubling.
Geffen - Politics
In Hollywood people lie to each other and
cheat each other and then go and play tennis.
But I don't want to be a tennis player.
Geffen - Lies
Business - Cheat
This country was taken into war based on
lies about weapons of mass destruction and
Al Qaeda's role with respect to Iraq, which
there wasn't one at the time we went in.
I want to state that Mr.
Cheney must be held accountable. He
is already ginning up a cause for war against
Iran. Now, we have to stand for this Constitution,
we have to protect and defend this Constitution.
Kucinich - Military
In today's regulatory environment, it's
virtually impossible to violate rules.
Madoff - Regulation
The government consists of a gang of men
exactly like you and me. They have, taking
one with another, no special talent for
the business of government; they have only
a talent for getting and holding office.
Their principal device to that end is to
search out groups who pant and pine for
something they can't get and to promise
to give it to them. Nine times out of ten
that promise is worth nothing. The tenth
time is made good by looting A to satisfy
B. In other words, government is a broker
in pillage, and every election is sort of
an advance auction sale of stolen goods.
L. Mencken - Government
The Greens have not been providing you with
the full information about where their money
comes from or what it's about. I
think the Greens in this upcoming state
election should resign if they're being
funded by an offshore political power. It's
tantamount to treason and something needs
to be done about it.
Palmer - Australia
There have been people.. ever since I've
had any kind of position in the world..
who have accused me of being ruler of the
world. I have to say that I think for the
large part, I would have to decide to describe
them as crack pots. It makes no sense whatsoever,
and isn't true, and won't be true, and to
raise it as a serious issue seems to me
to be irresponsible.
Rockefeller - Power
Theory - Irresponsible
In the 1960s, if you introduced a new product
to America, 90% of the people who viewed
it for the first time believed in the corporate
promise. Then 40 years later if you performed
the same exercise less than 10% of the public
believed it was true. The fracturing of
trust is based on the fact that the consumer
has been let down.
Schultz - Lies
The liar's punishment is not in the least
that he is not believed, but that he cannot
believe anyone else.
Bernard Shaw - Karma
Quotes - Liar
If you don't read the newspaper, you are
uninformed; if you do read the newspaper,
you are misinformed.
Twain - Newspapers
A man is never more truthful than when he
acknowledges himself a liar.
Twain - Truth
A military operation involves deception.
Even though you are competent, appear to
be incompetent. Though effective, appear
to be ineffective.
Tzu - Battle
I have said to you to speak the truth is
a painful thing. To be forced to tell lies
is much worse.
Wilde - Truth
