why people lie?

the reasons why a person lies is unanswerable perhaps becoz we cant classify a lie as a bad one..some time we lie becoz its important to make happy someone and sometime we lie to avoid a pesonal loss but its the mentality and intention that matters much for making a lie a crime or a bad event.

i agree with lotus123.. there are situations that lie can save relationships such as friendships.. and lies can even save life!.. lie can have valid reasons why it exist.. they are called white lies.. and too bad, white or not [or whatever colors you have there,]lies are always lies and so is bad.. by the way, nice name, lotus123.. it reminds me of the old computer software..^^
