My take on honesty or lack thereof : Dwight L. Moody “Character is what a man is in the dark.”
* You shouldn’t tell people everything, but you should always tell the truth
*People ignore harsh truths to swallow sweet lies, and will do so without blinking an eye
*Makeup; hairstyles; clothing; all of these are lies that are chosen by the psyche and therefore bear the signature of the soul. The lies that people choose are the truths that betray them.
*The most confident of people are calm: So if one roars like a lion, treat them like the deer that they are.
*The person who wants to do right and proclaims so verbally is unaccustomed to such a virtue. Some think that generosity is a tool to assuage guilt, and I’m inclined to agree.
* If you know something about someone, or understand a subject or an idea better than another, do not let it be known that you do. If do volunteer your understanding, you clearly do not understand how ideas or people are best understood.
* When you hear someone talk about actions, what they will do or what they will not do, you now know which promises they are sure to break.
