true. Let's say these are the perpendicular lines. |dw:1440958731502:dw|

They have negative reciprocal slopes. You can draw an infinite amount of lines through that intersection point, but it's not possible to draw a line through that point that's perpendicular to either of the original lines. At least in 2 dimensions |dw:1440958948013:dw|

Of course if you expand this to consider 3 dimensions, the statement is false. At each corner 3 lines intersect and each is perpendicular to the other 2. |dw:1440959112205:dw|
