How to use 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. Ludwig Wittgenstein:

    Nothing is so difficult as not deceiving oneself.

  3. Francis Cardinal George, OMI:

    Appearances are deceiving when it comes to the Holy Eucharist. It looks like the bread of Jesus’ time, tastes like unleavened bread, smells and feels like bread but it’s not bread. It’s the body and blood, human soul and divine nature of Jesus of Nazareth, risen from the dead.

  4. Conte Camillo Benso di Cavour:

    I have discovered the art of deceiving diplomats. I speak the truth, and they never believe me.

  5. Mehmet Murat ildan:

    Seek truth! Seek truth in the darkness, under the oceans, above the clouds; seek it everywhere and every time! Stop deceiving yourself with the untruth, seek the truth!
