Author: John Updike
3. "Fakery is a vital currency in our social intercourse. That's not necessarily all bad. A lot of the time we pretend as a way of fortifying or easing connections.

If more people understood the acting process, the goals of good actors, the conventional wisdom would be ‘actors are terrible liars,' because only bad actors lie on the job.

What's called for, what actors are hired for, is to bring reality to the arbitrary."
Author: Rob Lowe
8. "Money management has been a profession involving a lot of fakery - people saying they can beat the market, and they really can't."
