On Deception

From Scott Berkun:

As irrational beings who find it hard to accept tough truths,
our deceptions protect us from each other and ourselves.
Deceptions help avoid unnecessary conflicts, hiding the
confusion of our psychologies from those who don’t care.
White lies are the spackle of civilization, tucked into the dirty
corners our necessary but inflexible idealisms create.
