With a secret like that at some point the secret itself becomes irrelevant. The fact that you keep does not. Lies and secrets, they are like cancer in the soul. They eat away what is good and leave behind only destruction behind. The prettiest smile hide the deepest secrets. The prettiest eyes have cried the most tears. And the kindest hearts have felt the most pain. Tell your friend a lie. If he keeps it secret, then tell him the truth. Keeping secrets will always lead to unhappiness and communication is the key to love. No one who loves life can ignore literature, and no one who loves literature can ignore life. Life is short, but there is always time enough for courtesy. It does not matter how you came into the world, what matters is that you are here.
