„Родители обманывают своих детей, чтобы скрыть от них вещи, к которым дети, по их мнению, еще не готовы. Так же точно и дети, подрастая, скрывают от своих родителей то, что считают недоступным родительскому пониманию.“

„Только поэт может передать нюансы человеческих переживаний.“


„Лицо выдаёт обман многочисленными признаками: микрогримасы, смазанные выражения, очевидные эмоции, моргание, расширенные зрачки, слезы, румянец, бледность, ассиметрия, окаменелость, фальшивые улыбки. Некоторые признаки выдают скрываемые чувства, другие свидетельствуют о самом факте утаивания, третьи же буквально вопят, что тут сплошная фальшь.“

„Emotions can override…the more powerful fundamental motives that drive our lives: hunger, sex, and the will to survive. People will not eat if they think the only food available is disgusting. They may even die, although other people might consider that same food palatable. Emotion triumphs over the hunger drive! A person may never attempt sexual contact because of the interference of fear or disgust, or may never be able to complete a sexual act. Emotion triumphs over the sex drive! And despair can overwhelm even the will to live, motivating a suicide. Emotions triumph over the will to live!“ Emotions Revealed: Recognizing Faces and Feelings to Improve Communication and Emotional Life

„In some instances, you may care so much about the person who has hurt you, or be so unable to be angry with him (or with anyone), that you rationalize his hurtful acts by finding some basis in your own actions for his hurtful behavior; you then feel guilty rather than angry. Put in other terms, you become angry with yourself rather than with the one who hurt you.“ Unmasking the Face: A Guide to Recognizing Emotions from Facial Clues

„A broken promise is not a lie.“ Telling Lies: Clues to Deceit in the Marketplace, Politics, and Marriage

„Smiles are probably the most underrated facial expressions, much more complicated than most people realize. There are dozens of smiles, each differing in appearance and in the message expressed.“ Telling Lies: Clues to Deceit in the Marketplace, Politics, and Marriage


„People also smile when they are miserable.“ Telling Lies: Clues to Deceit in the Marketplace, Politics, and Marriage

„the unhappy person is expected to conceal negative feelings, putting on a polite smile to accompany the “Just fine, thank you, and how are you?” reply to the “How are you today?” The true feelings will probably go undetected, not because the smile is such a good mask but because in polite exchanges people rarely care how the other person actually feels.“ Telling Lies: Clues to Deceit in the Marketplace, Politics, and Marriage

„MOST LIES succeed because no one goes through the work to figure out how to catch them.“ Telling Lies: Clues to Deceit in the Marketplace, Politics, and Marriage

„Emotions change how we see the world and how we interpret the actions of others. We do not seek to challenge why we are feeling a particular emotion; instead, we seek to confirm it.“ Emotions Revealed: Understanding Faces and Feelings


„Not everyone is able to lie or is willing to do so.“ Telling Lies: Clues to Deceit in the Marketplace, Politics, and Marriage

„It is easy to conceal an emotion no longer felt, much harder to conceal an emotion felt at the moment, especially if the feeling is strong. Terror is harder to conceal than worry, just as rage is harder to conceal than annoyance. The stronger the emotion, the more likely it is that some sign of it will leak despite the liar's best attempt to conceal it.“ Telling Lies: Clues to Deceit in the Marketplace, Politics, and Marriage

„Suspicious people should be terrible lie catchers, prone to disbelieving-the-truth“ Telling Lies: Clues to Deceit in the Marketplace, Politics, and Marriage

„Remember that the polygraph test is not a lie detector. It only detects emotional arousal.“ Telling Lies: Clues to Deceit in the Marketplace, Politics, and Marriage
