On the Decay of the Art of Lying
Mark Twain
3 Installments

In this short, satirical essay, Twain describes the lie as, “as a recreation, a solace, a refuge in time of need, the fourth Grace, the tenth Muse, man's best and surest friend” and suggests that rather than fight the inevitable, we acknowledge that we all lie - all the time - and only learn to do it better.

One of my favorite authors--Twain speaks with authority on the topic as a master of the art of lying and tall tales. But the genius of this piece about 'lying' is that it is founded in truth and decorated with Twain's usual sense of humor. I enjoyed it very much.
