If everyone here says we haven’t lied in our lives, I think it’s a lie itself. I used to steal money from my mom’s wallet when I was a kid. And I lied to my mom that my sister stole it. Of course, I got caught and scolded!
People all may have experiences to tell lies to their parents, friends, or teachers. They might tell lies to deceive other people intentionally, to hide their faults to protect themselves, or to gain some advantages for themselves over others.

A white lie is a mirror of tears that shines inside of a human being like this.
The following is the relationship between white and black lies. The work of giving color to lies has existed from time to time.
