"It is a great importance to set a resolution, not to be shaken, never
to tell an untruth. There is no vice so mean, so pitiful, so
contemptible and he who permits himself to tell a lie once, finds it
much easier to do it 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 it's good

                                        --Thomas Jefferson

(Truth IS a wonderful concept, but sometimes it depends on what "is"
 is.) RB
