Yes.Sometimes its better to let the truth be hidden for it may devastate the lives of the concerned.Sometimes lies can be Savior but as the universally recognized saying goes,"Truth cant remain hidden forever"...The duplicitous of truth,gets unravelled sooner than later. And lies dont have truth in it.But its upto the people portraying lies,how geniune their excuse is that determines the intention of that person,whether its the truthfulness of the person who decided to lie for no harm or the double faceted cheat who used truth for their own benefit.Not all the truth speakers are genuine and not all the people lying are cheats.Truth and lies are intertwined.One cant live without the other:))))

Yes, all lies have SOME truth to them, that is what makes them believable. Truth can be used to reveal things for selfish and cruel reasons, making it deceitful for one to lie. All lies and truths are only defined by the perspectives of those we tell them to and those who know what really happened.

There are those statements known as "lies of omission," wherein a person makes a statement that is "technically" true, but is actually dishonest in its nature. A simple example could be: Employer: "Have you ever had your driver's license revoked" Employee: "Nope!" (The truth being that the employee never HAD a license to begin with.) He "Technically" told the truth, but he is being dishonest by not informing his employer that he is not licensed to drive.
