Do people deceive themselves? Do people act theatrically in their private lives? I am asking you that because I just thought of 'the Divine Comedy' by Dante and this book inspired my questions. Are we true to ourselves? What makes our lives a theatre play? Gosh, aren't I in a philosophical mood? I guess I am not enjoying my current role.
"If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude. Don't complain". Maya Angelou

"The most common lie is that which one lies to himself; lying to others is relatively an exception." Nietsche
We only know the partial truth about anything. Wittingly or unwittingly we tell half truths all the time.
