Can someone please tell me who said:

A LIE IS AS GOOD AS THE TRUTH IF YOU CAN FIND SOMEONE TO BELIEVE IT.

A lie told often enough becomes the truth.
~ Lenin (1870 - 1924

The public will believe anything, so long as it is not founded on truth.
~ Edith Sitwell

Liars when they speak the truth are not believed.
~ Aristotle (384 BC - 322 BC), from Diogenes Laertius, Lives of Eminent Philosophers

A lie would have no sense unless the truth were felt as dangerous.
~ Alfred Alder

All great truths begin as blasphemies.
~ George Bernard Shaw (1856 - 1950)

It is always the best policy to tell the truth, unless, of course, you are an exceptionally good liar.
~ Jerome K Jerome

Me and Jesus, a few years back, used to hang
And he said "It's your choice babe, just remember
I don't think you'll be back in 3 days time so you choose well"

Tori Amos, "Me And A Gun"

old adage: a lie is as good as the truth if you stick to it.

'a lie is as good as the truth, as long as it is believed'
http://www.zdnet.com/anchordesk/talkback/talkback_212131.html

a lie is as good as the truth if it advances the Leftist agenda

a lie is as good as the truth as long as you believe it

A lie is as good as the truth when you'd rather lie than tell the truth.

the new USA CYCLING MISSION STATEMENT:
A LIE IS AS GOOD AS THE TRUTH AND SOMETIMES A LOT BETTER.

At MacArthur's trial in 1993, the same prosecutor's office that had relied on his testimony to convict Garcia attacked MacArthur "a proficient liar" and presented testimony from MacArthur's colleagues in the police department that his motto was "[a] lie is as good as the truth, if someone believes it."

The Truth without kindness is not the truth it"s cruelty.

However, the truth, the whole, truth and nothing

but the truth so help you God, sets me free.

A lie doesn't set me free it "binds me to

anxiety."

People who lie suffer and try to manipulate and

even if it works it backfires because it's not

foundationed with Decent Intentions and worst

of all people who lie intentionally can't trust

other because they don't trust themselves or

they wouldn't be consistantly avoiding the truth.

Scott Peck in his great book "The Road Less

Traveled" makes some great comparisons, also.

His book People of The Lie is outstanding.

The simple difference is lying seperates me from

God,
Others
andSelf.

Does this mean I can be perfectly honest ? NO

Honesty is not a absolute, but I strive to be

honorable not dishonorable.

There's no right way to do the wrong thing and no

wrong way to do the right thing, in my opinion.

Michael

Hello, I sent this massage because I would like to ask you for help. I am looking for who said a quote my teacher assigned me. "a lie is as good as a truth if you can get somebody believe it". Some people in this forum attribute this quote to Goebbels, but my teacher says no. So, I have no idea who said this. Could you give me some hint please?

Believe it or not it was the comedian Flip Wilson that said it in one of his stand up routines.
