I see, I know, I believe, I am undeceived
We are deceived by promises and time disappoints us...
It is twice the pleasure to deceive the deceiver
We are easily fooled by that which we love
It is not only old and early impressions that deceive us; the charms of novelty have the same power
Whatever deceives men seems to produce a magical enchantment
When a person cannot deceive himself the chances are against his being able to deceive other people
No deceit is so veiled as that which lies concealed behind the semblance of courtesy
Men who cannot deceive others are very often successful at deceiving themselves
We deceive and flatter no one by such delicate artificies as we do our own selves

On Anger: "For every minute you remain angry, you give up sixty seconds of peace of mind."
On Destiny: "Our destiny exercises its influence over us even when, as yet, we have not learned its nature: it is our future that lays down the law of our today."
Human, All Too Human
On Friendship: "A crowd is not company; and faces are but a gallery of pictures; and talk but a tinkling cymbal, where there is no love."
