I hadn't come across this quote ( though of course in rality, you would need to remember what acually happened, which isn't always easy ) ; but in my work on truth-telling in healthcare, I always emphasized that while truth is hard to remember, lies are far more difficult to recall. To remember exact details of the lie, and who you told what to ? Much harder than liars tend to assume
