When is the whole truth not to be told?

“…compassion is more important than the truth.. if I told him it would be devastating to him.”

– Jackie Mason in Desert Island Disks on Radio 4 in interview with Kirsty Young (at the 17:25 min mark in the podcast but the context of the statement was most important).

It resonates with me, because I’ve often said that people wish more for emollient fantasies than the raw truth.
