I don't understand this phrase and I hope you could explain it to me.
Thank you very much in advance.
Oh what a wicked web we weave...when first we practice to deceive.
When we lie about something, it is rarely done with one sentence or action.
It becomes a spider's web of half truths and falsehoods that must be remembered. You feel trapped by what may have started out as an innocent "white" lie that gets out of control and requires you to add more and more lies to support the original falsehood.
