Chapter 4, Page 7, Book 18

Be true to your work, your word, and your friend.

Henry David Thoreau

Honesty is the best policy...

Truth is such a rare thing, it is delightful to tell it.

Emily Dickinson

I believe that honesty and seeking the truth is always the way to go.  Honesty causes us to have confidence, faith, empowers our will power and represents us in the best possible way.

Even when it’s hard, telling the truth always has a better outcome than a bunch of lies.  lying destroys relationships.  Truth builds them. 

The best reputation you can have is an honest one.  You can always count on the truth over a lie.  No change is possible without the knowing the truth.  I cannot change something in myself if I’m not aware that its there and needs to be changed. 

 Real friends will tell you what you don’t want to hear.  Telling truths shows that you really care.  The truth might be painful to hear, but a truth that comes from a place of love and consideration will be appreciated.

Remember:  If you can’t tell the truth, don’t lie.

The real things haven’t changed.  It is still best to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasure and have courage when things go wrong.

Laura Ingalls Wilder



seeking the truth is indeed the only way to go. " lying destroys relationships. Truth builds them. "

'Not always the case in my past, but I remember how free-ing it felt when I embraced truth-telling. Agreed, it's all in the way one communicates.

Ain't it the TRUTH! That old saying, "And the Truth will set you free." still reigns as a fact!
