Deception is a cruel act... It often has many players on different stages that corrode the soul. ~ You can fool some of the people all the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you cannot fool all of the people all the time-

Man's mind is so formed that it is far more susceptible to falsehood than to truth.
Tricks and treachery are the practice of fools, that don't have brains enough to be honest. ~ You can't cheat the public for long.
To cheat oneself out of love is the most terrible deception; it is an eternal loss for which there is no reparation, either in time or in eternity ~
It takes years to build up trust, and only seconds to destroy it. ~ The scars you can't see are the hardest to heal. ~ Anger is just a cowardly extension of sadness. It's a lot easier to be angry at someone than it is to tell them you're hurt. ~
You know that when I hate you, it is because I love you to a point of passion that unhinges my soul. ~
Julie de Lespinasse
~ If you make money your god, it will plague you like the devil. ~ A man is usually more careful of his money than of his principles. ~
Money may be the husk of many things but not the kernel. It brings you food, but not appetite; medicine, but not health; acquaintance, but not friends; servants, but not loyalty; days of joy, but not peace or happiness. ~
Money is power, freedom, a cushion, the root of all evil, the sum of blessings. ~
It's a kind of spiritual snobbery that makes people think they can be happy without money. ~
I have learned now that while those who speak about one’s miseries usually hurt, those who keep silence hurt more. ~
