CAN LIES BE ACCEPTABLE SOMETIMES?

Is it better to lie, to make someone happy? or is it better to tell the truth, but make someone cry?

It is best to tell the truth always. Because, truthfulness is foundation of all virtues, all good, all values.
Lies cannot make anyone happy. Cheated people may feel pleased at the moment, but they will become very disappointed at discovering the lies of people they love or trust, then they lose all trust in liars and suspect the world.
Truth may make someone cry, but tears may wear away their doubts. Once trust is established among people through love, modesty, sincerity, then unity, peace, prosperity will come and reign over the world of noble humanity. Personal truth might be impossible to tell, so it is better to keep silent instead of using lies.
Of course, we all need proper education to distinguish truth from falsehood, and to know how to express truth smartly, beautifully and particularly at right time to right people.

Abdul-Baha says:
“Truthfulness is the foundation of all the virtues of the world of humanity. Without truthfulness, progress and success in all of the worlds of God are impossible for a soul. When this holy attribute is established in man, all the divine qualities will also become realized.”
(Abdu’l-Baha, Baha’i World Faith – Abdu’l-Baha Section, p. 384)
