- Some people condemn whatever they like but are unable to afford or achieve. If you just listen to them and trust their words you would be misled. If a chance arises and such people get access to that target, they would quickly switch their stand and show their true colours.
- A stay with the poor you would hear a number of them speak ill of the wealth but in real sense they too wish to be rich.
- That extra ordinary kind person to you but mean to others, you need to think of him more than once as the chances of him having hidden cards are extremely high. See him beyond the gifts as that will be his true picture.
Remember the best deceivers do everything they can to cloak their roguish qualities. They cultivate an air of honesty in one area to disguise their dishonesty in others. Honesty is merely another decoy in their arsenal of weapons……………Robert Greene, The 48 Laws of Power.
Every society has its expected code of behaviour for all its members. This helps to regulate what to do and what to avoid. There are consequences in case you violate these norms.
In a society there are all kind of people you may think about and they use all types of tactics to fulfil their desires. Human beings are generally greedy in nature that is why there is need to control what they should not do to avoid making the society hard to live for some of its members and try to be accommodative to all members as each and everyone has a role to play.
Fully aware that the society discourages greed those not willing to follow the laid down regulations devises some clever ways to practice their greed while minimizing the chances of being caught.
Acting in a naive way is one of the methods applied to hide the true character by the deceivers. You will find an adult with a baby face not wanting to be termed as a baby. The same should apply to other facets of life do not use looks to judge someone. Try to find out the intention of one’s actions.
Some conmen and women will look for the vulnerable persons and behave as if they have a lot of care and concern for their situations especially during the times of hardships.
If a man is experiencing marital problems, then he happens to meet a con as he goes on with his businesses for example at a hotel or in a friend’s party, she will pretend to be caring. Should the man feel attracted to her due to her courteous nature the con would be happy to trap him.
Should the gentleman go ahead and disclose that he is experiencing some struggles in her marriage the newly found love will capitalize on this to enquire all weaknesses in the marriage and promise to fulfil all of them making her appeal more and more only to swindle the resources of her lover instead of advising him on what to do in order to reconcile with his wife.
Whenever you find anyone demonizing something with great strength then know they have interest in the issue they are fighting. They may have had bad experience in it or know somebody who have bad experience in.
In contrast others are fans of whatever they publicly fight but due to their greed making them not to want others enjoy it they talk ill about it for it to be thought it is bad.
There is a group of people who go against the grain and do what is not according to public expectation for anyone holding such a position so in private they engage in the vice but condemn it while in public. This makes it difficult for the public to associate them with these vices instead many will argue that they know him as an advocate against such ills.
Some people condemn whatever they like but are unable to afford or achieve. If you just listen to them and trust their words you would be misled. If a chance arises and such people get access to that target, they would quickly switch their stand and show their true colours.

The sweet coated medicine should never be treated as ordinary sweet as this is a sign that its extremely bitter but due to the need for it to pass through the mouth it is sugar coated. Dare not to chew it as the bitterness in it may be regrettable.
When one lies to avoid answering a certain question, he needs to keep doing this to defend that lie as it will have consequences.
He also needs to keep remembering the lie as at different times the matter in question may be examined or the question raised may be rephrased and the answer is expected to remain constant.
What was pleasing to lie about may become costly as you will be left with burden of proof, if proved to be lying it may cost your trust as that person will forever remain suspicious to your statements.
In 1175 a French monk named Alain de Lille wrote that you should not hold everything to be gold because it is shining like gold.
In his book Merchant of Venice William Shakespeare rephrased it to read all that glitters is not gold this version has remained popular to date. It means that not everything that looks to be precious that turns to be so. Always try to examine whatever you come across if you want to ascertain its true nature instead of using guess work.
