„They claimed that the old man had a knuckle-duster on his right, which is ridiculous and a dirty lie. He had it on his left.“

"The Pit of the Serpent" (1929)
Контексте: The men on the Dauntless have disliked the Sea Girl's crew ever since our skipper took their captain to a cleaning on the wharfs of Zanzibar--them being narrow-minded that way. They claimed that the old man had a knuckle-duster on his right, which is ridiculous and a dirty lie. He had it on his left.

„By a lie a man throws away and, as it were, annihilates his dignity as a man.“

—  Immanuel Kant German philosopher 1724 - 1804

Контексте: By a lie a man throws away and, as it were, annihilates his dignity as a man. A man who himself does not believe what he tells another … has even less worth than if he were a mere thing. … makes himself a mere deceptive appearance of man, not man himself.

Doctrine of Virtue as translated by Mary J. Gregor (1964), p. 93
