Verdade e falsidade
"In his intimate journals Vollard tells us that Degas feigned deafness to escape disputations and harangues concerning things that he considered false and distasteful. If the speaker or subject changed, his hearing immediately improved. We must marvel at his wisdom since he must have only surmised what we know definitely today: that the constant repetition of falsehood is more convincing than the demonstration of truth."
