"We lie loudest when we lie to ourselves"

Eric Hoffer. Or to paraphrase, "The most damaging deceptions are self-inflicted." Or, the most devastating deceptions are self-decptions." Or, "The most foolish fools are those who fool themselves". Or "to thine own self be true." as the Bard quoteth. Or, as Ida McCormick Healy once said, "You can bar your door from a thief but never a liar", especially when the liar and the lie-ee are one in the same. If truth is the casualty of a lie, then lying to oneself is a form of suicide.
