Examples of deceiving in a Sentence

  1. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    We don't get upset simply because someone lies, cheats and breaks our trust. In my view, we become upset because we can't trust that person (and folks like him/her) ever again. It's the violation and loss of our innocence that hurts us deep inside, for a short duration at least. Yet, when we rise from that freaky fall, we discover that we're stronger than ever before. It's true that what doesn't kill us often makes us stronger. So strange as it may sound, we should be thankful to that deceiving person, who offered us the golden opportunity in disguise - to eliminate our weakest links and to strengthen ourselves beyond our normal limitations. Cheers!

  2. Feltham:

    It was a false maxim of Domitian that he who would gain the people of Rome must promise all things and perform nothing. For when a man is known to be false in his word, instead of a column, which he might be by keeping it, for others to rest upon, he becomes a reed, which no man will vouchsafe to lean upon. Like a floating island, when we come next day to seek it, it is carried from the place we left it in, and, instead of earth to build upon, we find nothing but inconstant and deceiving waves.

  3. Mehmet Murat ildan:

    Seek for the endless life in the world, because with death, there remains neither the seeker nor the sought! The other world is altogether an illusion! Stop deceiving yourself; seek for the endless life in the world!

  4. Proverb:

    When a deceiving man tells you to climb a tree, tell him to climb it first. If he finds a comfortable spot you can follow him.

  5. Justice Hugo L. Black:

    The Press was protected so that it could bare the secrets of the government and inform the people. Only a free and unrestrained press can effectively expose deception in government. And paramount among the responsibilities of a free press is the duty to prevent any part of the government from deceiving the people.
