“A lie told often enough becomes the truth.”
The Lenin's quote says that a lie told too many times often becomes the truth.
Telling a lie implies a person's falsehood, which is not good. However, we divide lies into "positive lies" and "negative lies."
A harmful lie is something intentionally told that leads to a worse situation. For example, when we brag about something we did not do, that shows the other person to believe in a false case, and finding out such a thing ruins many things, especially the relationship and our credibility.
A positive lie can be told intentionally or without intention. However, it does not necessarily lead to adverse situations. For example, when a close friend of ours is sick, we can tell a lie to make him feel good. Although it is a lie, the cause is right. But we must not go overboard with lies.
Too many lies make that false situation become a truth. Believing too much of what we falsely say can make us feel superior, which is an absolute evil. So our attitude must always be rational and realistic. We avoid being liars.
