Deceit

If you once forfeit the confidence of your fellow citizens, you can never regain their respect and esteem. You may fool all of the people some of the time; you can even fool some of the people all the time; but you can't fool all of the people all of the time.

Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865) Politician. President of the United States.

The easiest person to deceive is one's own self.

Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton (1803-1873) British politician, poet and critic.
