Ryan Morris Prof. VanMeter Comm. 1 7 April 2008 The Ways We Lie Stephanie Ericsson wrote an interesting essay about lies. She talks about the many kinds of lies and she goes into depth about how most people don’t think about what a lie can do to other people. She states that people lie to look out for themselves and don’t’ really care about what they do to other people. We also lie so that we help people with the truth. We lie so that we don’t hurt someone’s feelings or to spare them the despair of the truth. People lie for all sorts of reasons and most of them are for the good but if someone would really sit back and think about how they lie and how many times they lie in a week they would be astonished. Some people lie without even knowing that they lie because lies come in so many different forms.

Lies can help and hurt people. They help people that tell the lie and can hurt the people that are lied to depending on the lie. Ericsson, Stephanie.The Ways We Lie 50 Essays: A Portable Anthology.
