In my opinion, nothing good ever really comes from lying. At some point the lie will come out in the open and be recognized as a lie. Depending upon the person and the situation, it could go horribly wrong, or be an awkward situation. However, if a person is always lying, how can you ever be able to depend on them in any way. Lying isn't always wrong, but I feel it depends on the situation.
Peace-keeping lies are lies told to avoid argument or problems and keep harm away from everyone. Viorst says "I tell these lies at times, and yet I always feel they're wrong. I understand why we tell them, but still they feel wrong." I agree with her because I find myself doing the same thing and end up feeling guilty as if I'm doing something I normally wouldn't do. If one had plans doing something or needs to be somewhere and they didn't make it or do what they were supposed to do, of course they are going to lie and make up some sort of excuse, that's just being
This leads to another question – What is a “virtue lie”? A virtue lie can be an act of protecting someone from being hurt, a virtue lie can be an act of facilitating the “best” consequence for the majority. The have one similarity – the liars “assume” the results of lying and telling truth. But who knows the actual results? We cannot predict the future.
Adults I would say, mainly lie to benefit, or to protect themselves in some way. Lies can affect people in a variety of different ways, and depending on the degree of the lie, the effect is either big, or not so big; either way there is an effect. Serious deception often makes it impossible for us to trust another person again. Lies can take over a person's life completely. The person that is lying has to tell one lie after another to keep the truth buried.
Arniesha Learson 3-23-10 ENG101 “The Ways We Lie” Lying is a form of deception, an untruthful statement, especially with the intent to deceive others. We all lie in many different ways and we may or may not do it intentionally. Some lie because we want to avoid small or important things. Lying is morally and ethically wrong and it is used to avert unnecessary conflict. There are many ways of lying.
It becomes difficult for a person with respect for others to gain power over someone who does not mind trampling over others to get to the top. These people have the ability to harm someone because their morals do not stop them, whereas one with good morals may become powerless because taking any action would mean that they have defied their morals. The main characters’ father, Sydney, is often known as someone who is abused. Sydney’s friend Connie realizes that it easy for him to blame
In light of this, does he really lie for no good reason, or is there a reasoning there?” I think he does lie for no reason, but I think that time he didn’t want to get his friend in trouble. Maybe he lied for a good cause, maybe he didn’t. Lying is not a good thing to do, it does not matter if it is for a good cause or not. It may be a bad thing for you to lie, but it may help your friend get out of trouble. What I’m
Discrimination can not only affect the person being discriminated against, it can affect their family, the wider community and the person using the discriminatory behaviour. When people are discriminated against they are denied the same advantages as others, therefore do not have the chance to reach their full potential. Thus, they do not progress or experience success which results in damage to their self-esteem which may dampen their motivation to learn. If they do not learn the required skills needed for certain rules they become excluded. Those who inflict the discrimination are also affected as they have the assumption that people have less value or are inferior to them, which leads them to have a false view/ distorted view of the world.
If a person really wants to protect one, they will tell the truth. If the protector doesn’t tell the truth, the ones who were protected will be lying the next time. So it shows that lying will not protect them for a long time. This is a cause and effect situation, if people lie to a person, majorly, they will lie again. In this case, I can see that lying to the soldiers are just an excuse for a moment, because they are just keeping the
Language Department Language Arts Lies we don’t want to know Once in our lives we have heard our parents or a teacher telling us lying is bad, that no matter what, the truth is always the answer, but in reality telling the truth can hurt as much as lying, people get affected by it. We as a society always brag about how important telling the truth is, when in fact we are not ready to hear it. According to the dictionary the meaning of ‘Truth’ is the true facts about something, rather than the things that have been invented or guessed, and of course it’s better to tell the truth than lying, but the truth can hurt as much as telling a lie and we are not ready to hear it if we react in a bad way. In the story ‘like the sun’ we see a man only saying the truth for a day, and instead of getting nice treats for doing the right thing, he gets bad consequences. Sekhar’s boss asks him to come to his house with him and tell him his truthful opinion on his singing, telling him that he can have 10 days to check the tests, but in that moment he needed to focus on his music “Well, you must listen with a free mind.
