Chapter 5, Page 25, Book 17

With the new day comes new strength and new thoughts

Eleanor Roosevelt

Truth is often scary, and it hurts pretty bad sometimes and sometimes it even changes everything

Truth has no special time of its own.  Its hour is now--always.

Albert Schweitzer

Telling the truth is never easy but truth has incredible power in itself and is a necessary part of living a fulfilling life. It is not only beneficial for the person who is telling the truth, but also for the person who is told the truth. 

If you tell the truth you don't have to remember anything. 

Mark Twain

I think the worst thing about being lied to is knowing you're not worth the truth. I’ve been in that situation and it is painful.  I’d rather know the real truth of the matter than to be lied to.  Truth might be painful to some, but lying can hurt even more.

When our lives are guided by our values, our decisions are based on truth  By being true to yourself, it becomes easier for you to be true to others. 

A lie may take care of the present, but it has no future.

Being able to tell the truth will earn your respect because telling the truths shows that you really care for others. The truth might often be painful to hear, so we need to learn to deliver it in a way that won’t lead other people to get defensive. Truth that comes from a place of love and consideration will always be appreciated.

Always tell the truth. If you can't always tell the truth, don't lie.
