A white lie - The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time. - Mark Haddon

This quote was added by lighttyping
When I got home Father was sitting at the table in the kitchen and he had made me a supper. He was wearing a lumberjack shirt. The supper was baked beans and broccoli and two slices of ham and they were laid out on the plate so that they were not touching. He said, "Where have you been?" And I said, "I have been out." This is called a white lie. A white lie is not a lie at all. It is where you tell the truth but you do not tell all of the truth.
