I've begun reading a comic novel titled All About Hatterr by a Eurasian philosopher G.V. Desani whose first language is not English. On the first page we read, "Mimic me Truth successfully (that's to say, lie to me and achieve belief) and I'd credit you with Art, Skill, Imagination, and intimate Intelligence of Truth. These are quality qualifications. What if I had Faith, and trusted you? That's making it easy." further we read, "I lie only to the trusting."
