March 3--Deception

When a person cannot deceive himself, the chances are against his being able to deceive other people.  --Mark Twain

    As time has passed, I've learned that I am not good at deceiving myself, and it's not helpful to try. I have little desire to deceive others, because I can't keep track of lies of any magnitude. 
    I'm guessing the opposite is true. If someone is good at deceiving others, I'll bet he or she is good at self-deception. Former President Trump is a perfect example. 
    Mark Twain was quite wise and clever.
