Somebody once said that lies will lock you up.
With truth the only key.

What do you think everyone?

i would also have accepted: lies will lock you up.
With truth the only WD40.
define 'lies' and 'truths'.
What context are we talking about? Are we defining truthfulness based on what the speaker thinks? Truth independent of individual beliefs? Are we taking into account intents?

Also, I am curious... Where did this question come from?

Lies often have short tracks, as the majority of our species is about as good at lying as your average dog but yes, sometimes it's better to lie than not to.
Like when the phone salesman calls you.
It's 4am, I won't even try making sense.
Hey. Even salesman gotta do his job.
If no one knows the truth then no one will know you're lying either. Therefore they'd take your lie as being the truth. Right?
Lies are useful tools for smart people and dangerous for dumb people. same as with everything kinda.
They are the sharpest tools in the shed,
But not much use for the biggest. (tools in the shed)

The irony is that the honest man gets figured as being the liar, while people buy into the lies that the liars spread.
