    I don't think so. I mean when your a kid you really don't know any better, you become a teenager and lying to your parents become a daily thing that you don't even think about, you become an adult and discover that white lies aren't always bad, and then you become a parent and realize that sometimes you have to lie to your children for their best interest. Good question!!

    I don't think that there's any possible way. Either subconsciously or consciously, we all lie.

    I don't know, I don't think so.  Sometimes we lie when we aren't even thinking about it.  Most often it would be to our children, telling them little things to make them feel better and reassure them of things.

    Yes it is possible by living it moment by moment and set a goal of 1 day out of 7 days a week. You have to start somewhere and that is a good place to start at to live without a single lie. So for your whole life from birth to death the answer is no. It will take a whole new way of living and outlook on life overall from our upbringing as a child to an adult. There is only 1 person that I can think of that have done this and it is Jesus Christ.

    No.  People sometimes lie to make others feel better.  They don't even realize they are really lying.

    Someone told me that the average person lies on a daily basis. Whether purposly or subconsciously people lie. To me, honestly is the best policy. I try to tell the truth always, but I have caught myself at times lying at really dumb things!

    Perhaps, but you will not get along well with others!

    Even a young child will story-tell, when they risk disappointing a favored, dad, grandma etc.   

    I think it is a self defense mechanism.

    Nope.  I lie down quite often.   When I'm not standing or sitting I'm lying.   It's good for you, too.    George Bernard Shaw said "I never stand when I can sit.  I never sit when I can lie down," and he lived to over ninety!

    Oh, you mean telling fibs?   Untruths?   I think we're all subject to that, whether consciously or not.   No, I doubt it's possible to live without the slightest lie.

    Yes....rigorous honesty. It is a learned way of life. I believe we come to  it a little later in life though...after we experience the hurt lies have caused ourselves and others. In the long run, it is always easier to tell the truth.

    Absolutely not, even if you make it through childhood. The first time your wife/girlfriend asks "does this make my a#@ look fat?" It's over.

    P.S. The answer for this is not . . "No, but your A#@ makes those pants look huge!" (ha ha)

    At some point of time, every person wants somebody to look after them.

    So there is nothing like that a person want to live life alone, though some person want to lead their lives lonely, But that does not mean that they do not want somebody to love them, they also want family memebers and friends support,
