Who had deceived thee so often as thyself?

I always divide people into two groups. Those who live by what they know to be a lie, and those who live by what they believe, falsely, to be the truth.
I became a virtuoso of deceit. It wasn't pleasure I was after, it was knowledge. I consulted the strictest moralists to learn how to appear, philosophers to find out what to think and novelists to see what I could get away with. And, in the end, I distilled everything down to one wonderfully simple principle: win or die.
When a person cannot deceive himself the chances are against his being able to deceive other people.
Therefore trust to thy heart, and to what the world calls illusions.
