“You know I hate, detest, and can’t bear a lie, not because I am straighter than the rest of us, but simply because it appals me. 
There is a taint of death, a flavour of mortality in lies – which is exactly what I hate and detest in the world – what I want to forget. It makes me miserable and sick, like biting something rotten would do.”

Joseph Conrad writer 1857-1924
