The wisdom of George Bernard Shaw (part 3)

"The liar's punishment is not in the least that he is not believed,
            but that he cannot believe anyone else."
George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950)
Winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature

This may be a distinctly Shavian point of view…it never occurred to me....

I think what makes this comment so remarkably old-fashioned is the assumption that your typical liar gives a rat's bandanna about the personal impact of his mendacity.

Perhaps liars had more character in days gone by…

Shaw speaks again

...and again
