“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. This means that everything you say is a white lie because when someone says, for example, “What do you want to do today?” you say, ” I want to do painting with Mrs. Peters,” but you don’t say, ” I want to have my lunch and I want to go to the toilet and I want to go home after school and I want to play with Toby and I want to have my supper and I want to play on my computer and I want to go to bed.”

-Mark Haddon, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time
