Honesty is the best policy. If, however, circumstance makes lying necessary, a gentleman omits, exaggerates and obscures facts rather than fabricates them.

The lies of a gentleman are less blatant deceits than discourteous misrepresentations, and thus more believable, and easily forgiven, than complete inventions.
