"He who permits himself to tell a lie once, finds it much easier to do a second and third time, till at length it becomes habitual; he tells lies without attending to it, and truths without the world's believing him. This falsehood of the tongue leads to that of the heart, and in time depraves all its good dispositions."source: Notes on the State of Virginia, 1781-1785.lies, falsehoods, truth, trust, honesty, integrity
