Beschreibungen

On the Decay of the Art of Lying is a short essay by Mark Twain from 1885. In it he deplores that way man's &quote;most faithful friend&quote; is being used and indeed misused, declaring that &quote;the wise thing is for us diligently to train ourselves to lie thoughtfully, judiciously; to lie with a good object, and not an evil one; to lie for others' advantage, and not our own; to lie healingly, charitably, humanely, not cruelly, hurtfully, maliciously; to lie gracefully and graciously, not awkwardly and clumsily; to lie firmly, frankly, squarely, with head erect, not haltingly, tortuously, with pusillanimous mien, as being ashamed of our high calling.&quote;
