Truth

People always pretend to be what they are not. They smile and pretend to be nice when they want something. And then their face turns sour when they don’t get it. They dress up in a nice suit and pretend to be respectable. But the only respectable thing about them is the suit. And they pretend to be truthful. But they can’t seem to remember exactly what the truth is. Now, as the old Turkish saying goes, if you really want to find out who a person is, give him wine and lots of it. The more you give him, the more truthful he will become. You see, there’s no truth in a person until you give him wine.
