Chapter 3, Page 28, Book 19

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

Emily Dickenson

March 28th- Be on the level and you won’t go downhill

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

Mark Twain

To be on level means that someone is sincere or honest, and not attempting to deceive others. When we trust someone we think they are reliable, and we have confidence in them.

Honesty is the first chapter of the book wisdom.

Thomas Jefferson

If someone is described as level headed, they are calm and sensible even in difficult situations.  Their level headed approach to life, means they will do what ever is necessary. They say what they mean, and mean what they say.  

I strive to be on the level and to be level headed too. I think one begets the other.  Being a level headed person means you express your thoughts, feelings and beliefs in a direct and honest way. You are straightforward and sincere.

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

Henry David Thoreau

You should always mean what you say and only say what you mean. Be quick to listen and slow to speak.

We have driven under that 'Truth' sign a couple times. It seems today there are more people who must 'keep their stories straight' than ever before. Mark Twain is correct, I have always admired that quote and tried to stick with it....

I love the "if you tell the truth you don't have to remember anything".!! HA HA! I remember when I was in addiction and had to cover one lie with another became a job to keep track of the lies! UGH! Today is so much easier! Tell the truth no matter what! What a wonderful way to live! Annster's Domain

It is so true that if you tell the truth, you don't have to remember what you said because if you have to repeat something, it will still be the truth. Always good to tell the truth!

What a super photo of that level to illustrate a point! Long ago, I also went through a dark period where lies fell freely from my lips. How incredibly GOOD it feels to be free of those traps and be thought of as a 'straight up' sort of person.

When you lie you are just delaying the truth - it will come out.
