This quote reflects the idea that telling a lie can help make a statement seem much more logical.On the other hand, things can get really ugly if you get caught in a lie. For example, if you and your best friend tell each other everything, and you just recently found out that she has been lying to you constantly, then the situation could become crazy. If you are in a good relationship with someone, then there are some things that you shouldn't lie to...
