Sweet lie (love?), bitter truth - if ever they will be compatible with each other? Rhetorical question, I guess...

From : The chapter epigraphs from Pudd'nhead Wilson's New Calendar
in Following the Equator (1897)


THE PUDD'NHEAD MAXIMS
THESE WISDOMS ARE FOR THE LURING OF YOUTH
TOWARD HIGH MORAL ALTITUDES. THE AUTHOR
DID NOT GATHER THEM FROM PRACTICE, BUT
FROM OBSERVATION. TO BE GOOD IS NOBLE;
BUT TO SHOW OTHERS HOW TO BE GOOD
IS NOBLER, AND NO TROUBLE.


CHAPTER VII.

Truth is the most valuable thing we have. Let us economize it.
—Pudd'nhead Wilson's New Calendar.

I should add: Let us be prodigal with truth so our life could be rich.

The truth is scarce but renewable asset - and our mistakes prove that from time to time...

Indeed, so valuable that it is used sparingly for fear of running into a shortage.
