Many of us think we’re honest. I know I do! But often you’ll find yourself uttering little lies, consciously or not. What does honesty mean to you? How can you live a more honest life? What do you do when you’re met with a dose of honesty?
Honesty is the best policy.
Honesty is the first chapter in the book of wisdom.
It has always seemed strange to me… the things we admire in men, kindness and generosity, openness, honesty, understanding and feeling, are the concomitants of failure in our system. And those traits we detest, sharpness, greed, acquisitiveness, meanness, egotism and self-interest, are the traits of success. And while men admire the quality of the first they love the produce of the second.
Confidence… thrives on honesty, on honor, on the sacredness of obligations, on faithful protection and on unselfish performance. Without them it cannot live.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
Honesty is the best policy - when there is money in it.
Treat those who are good with goodness, and also treat those who are not good with goodness. Thus goodness is attained. Be honest to those who are honest, and be also honest to those who are not honest. Thus honesty is attained.
Drawing is the honesty of the art. There is no possibility of cheating. It is either good or bad.
The secret of life is honesty and fair dealing. If you can fake that, you’ve got it made.
Groucho MarxA sarcastic person has a superiority complex that can be cured only by the honesty of humility.
Lawrence G. Lovasik
The foundation stones for a balanced success are honesty, character, integrity, faith, love and loyalty.
It is discouraging how many people are shocked by honesty and how few by deceit.
I believe in using words, not fists. I believe in my outrage knowing people are living in boxes on the street. I believe in honesty. I believe in a good time. I believe in good food. I believe in sex.
Almost any difficulty will move in the face of honesty. When I am honest I never feel stupid. And when I am honest I am automatically humble.
