Alec Guinnness: The Good Lie Based on Hope

Interview with Alec Guinness
Conducted by James Grissom
Via Telephone

We are quite capable--quite comfortable--lying to ourselves each and every day about the unfortunate things, the evil things, that are about to happen to us, and it is based on...what? Fear, I think. Well, how hard can it be to lie to ourselves about how glorious, how happy, how beautiful things are about to be? And this is based on...what? Hope, I guess. And we have hope, don't we? I'm fairly certain it's what we coasted on to find each other, today, right now. So go for the good lie--the good lie based on hope.
