Yeah yeah I know, “what week”, but I mean that this struck me “this week”. Good excuse no?
Since a couple of weeks I’m back into listening to Depeche Mode (again) and one of their many lyrics that struck me is (from Policy of Truth):
You’ll see your problems multiplied
If you continually decide
To faithfully pursue
The policy of truth
Now when browsing throught the quotes of that Quotemeister General, Oscar Wilde, I found this one:
A little sincerity is a dangerous thing, and a great deal of it is absolutely fatal.
Unfortunately for me, I tend to be honest; as a result I can attest to the truth of these quotes.
Maybe I should follow Oscar Wilde’s advice from another of his quotes a bit more often:
If you want to tell people the truth, make them laugh, otherwise they’ll kill you.
