“Your parents say you’re always lying.”


“Oh, I lie now and then, I suppose. Sometimes I’d tell them the truth and they still wouldn’t believe me, so I prefer to lie.”


Antoine Doinel (Jean-Pierre Léaud),  from the film The 400 Blows, 1959, French Director Francois Turffaut, 50 Greatest Films – British Film Institute
