Lies and Deceit Quotes

How we cite our quotes:

Quote #10

What would happen in the morning, when the constable found her in the cell and had to bring her home for the second time? What would they say? Would they ever trust her again? Winnie squirmed, sitting in the rocker, and swallowed uncomfortably. Well, she would have to make them understand, somehow, without explaining. (23.8)

Sir Walter Scott put it best: "Oh what a tangled web we weave, / When first we practice to deceive!" (Marmion, 7.17). Winnie has gotten herself into a sticky situation, that's for sure.
