FALSITY

Whatever is only almost true is quite false, and among the most dangerous of errors, because being so near truth, it is the more likely to lead astray.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

To be true is manly, chivalrous, Christian; to be false is mean, cowardly, devilish.
      - Thomas Carlyle

So the false spider, when her nets are spread, deep ambushed in her silent den does lie.
      - John Dryden

It is far better to be deceived than undeceived by those whom we tenderly love.
      - Francois Duc de la Rochefoucauld

He seemed
  For dignity compos'd and high exploit:
    But all was false and hollow.
      - John Milton, Paradise Lost
         (bk. II, l. 110)

False as the adulterate promises of favorites in power when poor men court them.
      - Thomas Otway

False-dealing travels a short road, and surely detected.
      - William Penn

As false
  As air, as water, as wind, as sandy earth;
    As fox to lamb; as wolf to heifer's calf;
      Pard to the hind, or stepdame to her son.
      - William Shakespeare

False as stairs of sand.
      - William Shakespeare

Had she been true,
  If Heaven would make me such another world
    Of one entire and perfect chrysolite,
      I'd not have sold her for it.
      - William Shakespeare

Stealing her soul with many vows of faith;
  And ne'er a true one.
      - William Shakespeare

I pray you do not fall in love with me,
  For I am falser than vows made in wine.
      - William Shakespeare, As You Like It
         (Rosalind at III, v)

He who is false to his fellow-man is also false to his Maker.
      - P.J. Stahl (pseudonym of Pierre Jules Hetzel)
