It is impossible to calculate the moral mischief, if I may so express it, that mental lying has produced in society. When a man has so far corrupted and prostituted the chastity of his mind as to subscribe his professional belief to things he does not believe he has prepared himself for the commission of every other crime.
Supporting the truth, even when it is unpopular, shows the capacity for honesty and integrity.
An excuse is worse and more terrible than a lie; for an excuse is a lie guarded.
Each time you are honest and conduct yourself with honesty, a success force will drive you toward greater success. Each time you lie, even with a little white lie, these are strong forces pushing you toward failure.
Honest people don't hide their deeds.
When we are not honest, we are cut off from a significant resource of ourselves, a vital dimension that is necessary for unity and wholeness.
Be honest to those who are honest, and be also honest to those who are not honest. Thus honesty is attained.
