Why the liar can be far more civilized

The statues of Oscar Wilde and Estonian writer 
Eduard Wilde sitting on a bench, in Tartu, Estonia.

"The liar at any rate recognizes that recreation, not instruction, is the aim of conversation, and is a far more civilised being than the blockhead who loudly expresses his disbelief in a story which is told simply for the amusement of the company."

- Oscar Wilde
