Random Thoughts on Honesty

The person who is honest only for a “price” should be rated as dishonest.

There are no degrees of honesty. There are only absolutes. Either you are honest or you are not.

Honesty does not come for a price; honesty is its own reward.It’s also the most efficient form of human behavior.

Honest persons never have to worry about which lie they have told to whom, and they never have to worry about getting caught. Thus, they are free to focus all their energies on more productive things.

Make it a habit to be honest in all your dealings. If you can’t be truthful in what you say, don’t say anything at all. Remember, small lies start out innocently enough but soon assume lives of their own. A small lie requires a larger one to conceal it, and soon more, even larger lies are required.

Don’t tell that first lie or take a single thing that doesn’t belong to you, and you’ll never have to worry.
