David Hume – A set of harmless liars

Share this quote:
David HumeThere is a set of harmless liars, frequently to be met with in company, who deal much in the marvelous. Their usual intention is to please and entertain; but as men are most delighted with what they conceive to be the truth, these people mistake the means of pleasing, and incur universal blame.

David Hume   (1711-1776)
