Tells

Famous quotes containing the word tells:

    No man dies for what he knows to be true. Men die for what they want to be true, for what some terror in their hearts tells them is not true.
    Oscar Wilde (1854–1900)

    Mental health data from the 1950’s on middle-aged women showed them to be a particularly distressed group, vulnerable to depression and feelings of uselessness. This isn’t surprising. If society tells you that your main role is to be attractive to men and you are getting crow’s feet, and to be a mother to children and yours are leaving home, no wonder you are distressed.
    Grace Baruch (20th century)

    If we’ve told lies, you’ve told half-lies. And a man who tells lies, like me, merely hides the truth, but a man who tells half-lies has forgotten where he put it.
    Robert Bolt (1924–1995)
