” One-year-olds learn concealment. Five-year-olds lie outright: they manipulate via flattery. Nine-year-olds – masters of the cover-up. By the time you enter college, you’re going to lie to your mom in one out of every five interactions. “


” Liars do look you in the eye. They do not always stutter, stammer, blush or fidget. “


” Speaking of trust, ever since I wrote this book, ‘Liespotting,’ no one wants to meet me in person anymore – no, no, no, no, no. They say, ‘It’s okay. We’ll email you.’ I can’t even get a coffee date at Starbucks. My husband’s like, ‘Honey, deception? Maybe you could have focused on cooking. How about French cooking? “


” Not all lies are harmful. Sometimes we’re willing participants in deception for the sake of social dignity, maybe to keep a secret that should be kept secret, secret. We say, ‘Nice song.’ ‘Honey, you don’t look fat in that, no. “


” If you’re an average married couple, you’re going to lie to your spouse in one out of every 10 interactions. Now, you may think that’s bad. If you’re unmarried, that number drops to three. “


” Pay attention to science and not myths: We think liars won’t look you in the eyes, but it turns out an honest person will only look you in the eyes about 60 percent of the time. “


” A good lie detector doesn’t jump to conclusions but tries to understand the person across the table, her personality, and her motivations. Your goal as a lie spotter isn’t to point the finger and say, ‘You’re lying’ – your goal is to get to the truth. “


” As someone who specializes in deception, I’ll tell you this much: When someone insistently implores, ‘Believe me,’ don’t. Pleading ‘believe me’ or ‘trust me’ – insisting to people that you are telling the truth – is a tell-tale sign that you probably aren’t. “
