  One of my favourite friends who was very honest man (a native Texan) and
may have been seen by his friends as being irreligious, used to tell me
that when you lie,  you need to keep track what lie you have told whom and
when. This is very taxing when you have told a lot of lies to a lot of
people over time.

  When you are truthful, it is very easy. You don't even have to remember.
