The best liars do 'often' tell the truth, if and when it suits them to do so. The critical question is "How when, where, to whom and why?" It's all in the timing, the detail, and the context of their telling of it, and, most importantly, what the underlying motive involved, in the telling of it, really is .
For the well practiced Liar, the Truth is, more often than not, merely a useful tool in their personal arsenal which is to be used strategically, selectively, judiciously and always to their personal end, agenda and/or primary advantage. For the honest Truth seeker and Truth teller, the Truth is to be used unreservedly, transparently and 'honestly' even if it turns out to be to their own hurt, detriment, loss, cost and/or personal disadvantage. This is so, for them, in most, if not all, times and contexts, with only very rare and critical exceptions ever being allowed to change that dynamic at all.
So, for the habitual Liar, the Truth can be used dishonestly whereas, for the Truthful soul, the Truth must always be used honestly. Thus there are those who are honestly dishonest, those who are dishonestly honest, and those who are honestly honest and therefore Truthful, by default. The trick is to know who is who, which is which and when and why it is thus and so, which, in this day and age, is often not an easy ask or task to discern and then decide upon with any certainty of confidence, since honesty is not considered as highly as it once was in times past.. ~ Deanoceans
