Only enemies speak the truth; friends and lovers lie endlessly, caught in the web of duty.
If you're gonna be two-faced at least make one of them pretty.
The victor will never be asked if he told the truth.

A faith that cannot survive collision with the truth is not worth many regrets.
Never tell the truth to people who are not worthy of it.

Do not be afraid to take a chance on peace, to teach peace, to live peace...Peace will be the last word of history.
