Lie (Noun)
  A great lie is like a great fish on dry land; it may fret and fling, and make a frightful bother, but it cannot hurt you; you have only to keep still and it will die of itself.
            —George Crabbe
  A lie is like a snow-ball; the longer it is rolled, the larger it is.
            —Martin Luther
  A lie is like a vizard, that may cover the face, indeed, but can never become it.
            —Robert South
