True Lies.


I obsess about the truth. As though that makes me a lily-white saint.


However, in my continued mania, I have come to an uncomfortable question; do I really want to know the truth about everything like I claim to want to?


The answer is unequivocally NO.


Sometimes, it’s better to let some lies lie.

    True. Once a Communications Professor, in a class discussion on “being objective” as against “being subjective” remarked that too much objectivity would often lead to subjectivity itself.
    There are some many “truths” in this world that doesn’t satisfy the need to know. Instead, you’re terrified and haunted by such realities. The burden of carrying such knowledge makes life of a task than it already is.
