A quote by Mark Twain on truth is the topic of this blog post.
“If you tell the truth, you don’t have to remember anything.” Mark Twain
“This is an excellent quote by Mark Twain. If there is one thing that anyone who has worked any decent amount of time in the legal profession can tell you is that you can almost always spot a liar by the way they talk. Their stories are either way too smooth or full of obvious contradictions, and they seem to forget certain things. Mark Twain is right on the money with this comment. Telling the truth is not only the right thing to do but you don’t have to remember anything. If someone is speaking directly and forcefully about something and does not seem in the least bit forgetful they are telling the truth, or at least what they think in their hearts is the truth.” Stan Burman
