#EngQuote: Honesty

Hey fellas! How was your day? I hope it was fine. Mine, to be honest, wasn’t really interesting. By the way, why do we say ‘to be honest’? Why do we feel like we have to warn people when we’re about to tell some truth? To answer it myself, I think it’s because honesty isn’t always good to hear. Sometimes the easy and acceptable answer is not the truth. And sometimes we’re tempted to lie, because it saves us from awkwardness or difficult situations, albeit only in the short run. In the long run, honesty is important – it’s how we gain trust, and therefore nurture good relationships with people.

That said, I’m going to share to you some quotes about honesty:

“If you tell the truth you don’t have to remember anything.” —Mark Twain

“Every lie is two lies — the lie we tell others and the lie we tell ourselves to justify it.” —Robert Brault

“A lie may take care of the present, but it has no future.” —Anonymous

“A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to put its pants on.” —Winston Churchill

“Honesty doesn’t always pay, but dishonesty always costs.” —Michael Josephson

“The truth needs so little rehearsal.” —Barbara Kingsolver

“The biggest consequence to telling a lie is, it leads you to telling another one.” —Gary King

“Honesty is the first chapter of the book wisdom.” —Thomas Jefferson

“One of the most striking differences between a cat and a lie is that a cat has only nine lives.” —Mark Twain
