A friend was speaking to a man accompanied by his young daughter. The man felt that he could not get by without lying. “Do you lie to your daughter?” asked my friend. “Oh, no, never,” was his reply. “Then why not extend the same towards others?” asked my friend.
A man told me he lies all the time. It felt like a brick wall. Later I realized that is logically impossible, because he would have to have been lying when he told me that, if he always lies, and if he wasn’t lying when he told me that, then for once he was telling the truth. Oh, well. I will be ready if anyone else says that.
