Quotes about lied

Barbra Streisand

The audience is the best judge of anything. They cannot be lied to. Truth brings them closer. A moment that lags - they're gonna cough.

If

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or, being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise;

If you can dream - and not make dreams your master;
If you can think - and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build'em up with worn-out tools;

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,

Das Lied von einer Sommernacht

Hell schien der Mond in dieser Nacht
Als meine Liebe neu erwacht
Das Blut wie Wein durch meine Adern floß
Und Pfeile in mein Herze rein schoß
Meine Seele voll verlangen barst
Ihn zu erwarten hier am Horst
Der einzige Zeuge unserer Liebe war
Die Sommernacht so hell und klar
Der Fluß sein Lied uns leise sang
Und wie Musik dann in the Ästen hang
Laß niemals enden diese Nacht
Bis blaß der Sternenhimmel in all seiner Pracht
Ich musste gehn von diesem Ort
Geblieben ist ein kleines Wort
Gemeiselt in den großen Stein
Meine Liebe ist für immer dein.

Das Brückerl

Das Brückerl am Bach
Wo das Wasser fliesst sacht
Wenn es stolpert über Stock und Stein
Dann fühlte ich mich nie allein
In den Bäumen säuselt the Wind
Wie schön war es dort als ich noch ein Kind
Die Amsel sang ihr Lied so süß
Grillen zirpten bis es ward düsk
Jahre später dort hin mein Liebster kam
Mich stürmisch in die Arme nahm
Ein zarter Kuss bedeckt mein Mund
Wir liebten uns gar manche Stund
Die Zeit verging und all die schönen Tage
Was morgen kommt war nie eine Frage
Doch Morgen kam aus war der Traum
Traurig klang das Lied der Amsel im Baum
Der Wind verwehte uns auseinander weit
Ich war keine Braut im weissen Kleid
Doch hold war uns das Leben
Es hat uns beiden viel gegeben

Richard Nixon lied to gain love, to shore up his grandiose fantasies, to bolster his ever-wavering sense of identity. He lied in attack, hoping to win and always he lied, and this most aggressively, to deny that he lied.

Love's Growth

I SCARCE believe my love to be so pure
As I had thought it was,
Because it doth endure
Vicissitude, and season, as the grass;
Methinks I lied all winter, when I swore
My love was infinite, if spring make it more.

But if this medicine, love, which cures all sorrow
With more, not only be no quintessence,
But mix'd of all stuffs, vexing soul, or sense,
And of the sun his active vigour borrow,
Love’s not so pure, and abstract as they use
To say, which have no mistress but their Muse;
But as all else, being elemented too,
Love sometimes would contemplate, sometimes do.

And yet no greater, but more eminent,
Love by the spring is grown;
As in the firmament
Stars by the sun are not enlarged, but shown,

Biggest of All

"Put away lying:" this the preacher's text,
When a fair Sunday crowded every pew.
He preached so close that "What is coming next?"
Kept both bare heads and bonnets all askew.

Lies of all kinds he deftly classified,
Giving the forms and colors of each class.
Where was the hearer, then, that had not lied;
Who could not somewhere find his looking-glass?

Lies of good nature, pity, courtesy,
Revenge and malice, slander, envy, fear;
The lies of business and of policy,
And lies political, told once a year.

But, at the sermon's close, the preacher leant
Over the pulpit with close-folded arms
And such a gracious smile, as if it meant
To balm the conscience pricked with truth's alarms.
