I came across a marvelous quote from a book I have owned since 1976. I find this brilliant because it’s a philosophy that I have always believed in.

“Conjuring is the only absolutely honest profession – a conjurer promises to deceive and does.”

- Karl Germaine the Wizard
1878-1959

I've been using something similiar to that for awhile. During my shows, I tell the audience that magicians are some of the most honest people they will ever meet, because we tell them when we lie to them.
