Please help me find the Latin phrase that means if you keep repeating a lie, people will start to believe it. Thanks

I lurk much better than I post - and my lurking skills really suck.

Doesn’t ring a bell, sorry… I know that ‘lie/falsehood’ in Latin is ‘Mendacem’ – ‘Fides’ = honesty, ‘Nulla fides’ = no honesty, ‘Veritas’ = truth… try some google-fu?


“Mendacem memorem esse oportet”

It is fitting that a liar should be a man of good memory


“Mendacium semper in multiloquio”

There is always a lie in too much talk


“Verum est, quod pro salute fit, mendacium”

A lie told to save yourself is true


“Fama crescit eundo”

Rumors grow through circulation


“Homines quod volunt credunt”

Men believe what they want to


“Mala malus mala mala dat”

A bad apple tree gives bad apples (Evil begets evil)


“Mundus vult decipi, ergo decipiatur”

The world desires to be deceived; therefore it is

That phrase is most likely much younger than the Roman Empire. Hitler first wrote about the so called Big Lie propaganda technique in 1925 and Goebbels altered the phrase slightly later. The best known wording comes from a US psychological profile for Hitler where it says,

...people will believe a big lie sooner than a little one; and if 
you repeat it frequently enough people will sooner or later believe it.
