Robert A. Heinlein quote about truth from Time Enough for Love - The first way to lie artistically is to tell the truth—but not all of it. The second way involves telling the truth, too, but is harder: Tell the exact truth and maybe all of it... but tell it so unconvincingly that your listener is sure you are lying.
