From

The Roycroft Dictionary – Concocted by Ali Baba and the Bunch on Rainy Days —- printed in 1914

(Done into a printed book by the Roycrofters at their shop for the divertisement of the Gloomsters.)

LIAR: 1. One who tells the truth about something that never happened; hence, a poet, a preacher, a politician, or an arctic explorer. 2. An expert witness on the side of the Prosecution, or any witness called by the Defense. 3. One who reasons far ahead of his time; a seer. (As all combinations of facts must occur in endless time, the liar, no matter how absurd his statement, is uttering a truth, because he is stating a fact that has occurred or will occur at some future date. Thus, a liar, in the sense of one who utters a falsehood, can not be said, strictly speaking, to exist. As dirt is merely nectar in the process of evolving, so a liar is an observer born out of his time. He is a victim of a divine prank.)
