“Every lie we tell incurs a debt to the truth..."

 



"What is the cost of lies? It's not that we'll mistake them for the truth. The real danger is that if we hear enough lies, then we no longer recognise the truth at all." 
“Every lie we tell incurs a debt to the truth. Sooner or later that debt is paid.”
~ Valery Legasov from HBO's Chernobyl (written by Craig Mazin and Jonathan Renck)
