Right Lying

Jedis and Vulcans both lie like the Buddha.

“There is a story I was once told by a monk that illustrates this. The story goes that the Buddha was doing walking meditation in the forest when he perceived with his “all-seeing eye” an incident about to occur, and planned how to respond to it. A moment later a terrified-looking man ran past. The Buddha then stepped a few feet to the left and waited. A gang of brigands approached and asked, “While standing there, did you see a man run past?”

““No,” replied the Buddha. He was, of course, telling the truth. He had been standing somewhere else when he saw the man run past.”
