Instructions on How To Lie

Disregard the misconceptions of hostility in the act of lying. It is just a mechanism brought to us first by Darwin. A bird nips at the soil, her beak raw from the tragic repetition of giving and giving. She will return to her burrowed nest, with her throat gated and stomach full, and she will tell her young that she could not find their breakfast. And for once in her life, she will be satisfied. 

Begin by purging yourself of all guilt. Deliver confidence and mask the mountains behind your pupils. Only seconds until the infant will accept the bottle over the breast. The symbiosis of lying is much overlooked, as it is a philosophy, practiced by many politicians and businessmen. 

Disclaimer: trust no one.
