Honesty is Still the Best Policy

Honesty is Still the Best Policy

The truth out lives a lie. “Truth exists; only falsehood has to be invented”. Truth will rise above falsehood as oil above water. White lies leave black marks on your reputation. You can’t stretch the truth, without making your story look pretty thin. And when you stretch the truth, it snaps back at you. Truth will win every argument if you stick with it long enough. Though honesty may not be popular, it is always right. The fact that people don’t want to believe what is true, doesn’t prevent it from being correct. Half truths don’t make a whole truth. Beware of half truths: you may have gotten ahold of the wrong half. You’ll find out that a lie has no legs; it has to be supported with other lies. The truth is something which there is no known substitute. There is no acceptable replacement; there is no valid excuse for dishonesty. And nothing shows dirt like a white lie. It may seem like a lie has taken care of the present, but it has no future. Hope built on a lie is always the beginning of loss. A shady person never introduces a bright life. “Show me a liar and I will show you a thief”. A lie’s main assignment is to steal from others. Liars have no true friends for how can you trust them? If you lie, and then tell the truth, the truth will be considered a lie. A liar will not be believed even if he tells the truth. An honest person alters his ideas to fit the truth; a dishonest person alters the truth to fit his ideas. Always tell the truth and you never have to remember what you said.
