Unable To Recognize Truth

Public art seen in Vancouver BC CanadaA man who lies to himself, and believes his own lies, becomes unable to recognize truth, either in himself or in anyone else, and he ends up losing respect for himself and for others.

-- Fyodor Dostoevsky (1821-1881), Russian novelist, The Brothers Karamazov (1879-1880)
