EQUIVOCATION
[ Also see Artifice Concealment Deceit Dishonesty Dissimulation Evasion Falsehood Honesty Hypocrisy Lying Secrecy Sophistry Subtlety ]

There is no possible excuse for a guarded lie. Enthusiastic and impulsive people will sometimes falsify thoughtlessly, but equivocation is malice prepense.
      - Hosea Ballou

A sudden lie may be sometimes only manslaughter upon truth; but by a carefully constructed equivocation, truth always is with malice aforethought deliberately murdered.
      - Christopher Darlington Morley

Equivocation is half-way to lying, and lying the whole way to hell.
      - William Penn

But yet,--
  I do not like but yet, it does allay
    The good precedence; fye upon but yet;
      But yet is as a gaoler to bring forth
        Some monstrous malefactor.
      - William Shakespeare

Faith, here's an equivocator, that could swear in both the scales against either scale; who committed treason enough for God's sake, yet could not equivocate to heaven.
      - William Shakespeare

To doubt the Equivocation of the fiend,
  That lies like truth: Fear not, till Birnam wood
    Do come to Dunsinane.
      - William Shakespeare
