Jesus Christ is the greatest salesman ever, yet Napoleon Bonaparte explains the secret of his success in words I understand.

“Well, then,” he said, “give to Caesar what belongs to Caesar, and give to God what belongs to God.” – Matthew 22:21

There are 10 commandments in the Bible, and the 9th one, not the first, is:

"You must not testify falsely against your neighbor."

A more precise way of saying that is:

"You shall not lie."

Napoleon Bonaparte

Parables and diplomatic words are clever ways of avoiding the truth. One might believe that straight-out lying is a sin, yet tricky, twisty words are considered fair game.

As I watched this video of famous quotes by Napoleon Bonaparte, I felt as though these words are true – without the editing.

I dream of a world where I do not have to try to figure out what people are saying, and do not have to agree when they lie to me.
