Qoutes About Honesty

“The least initial deviation from the truth is multiplied later a thousandfold.” -Aristotle   Aristotle

It starts in a subtle suspectable way, you can call it slippery slope syndrome. Here we are today when finding men and women of honest character requires an advanced search tool. It all started with that initial deviation from the truth, the moral principles that hold families and institutions together. Never trade in your core values for any fleeting thing of this life.

“Every lie is two lies the life we tell others and the lie we tell ourselves to justify it.” Robert Brault

That’s like saying one sin leads to another. Start by being true to yourself, and then you will be true to others. Doubling down in wrong-doing complicates your problem now and later.

Success, Economy, Team, Team Spirit

“It’s discouraging to think how many people are shocked by honesty and how few by deceit.”  –Noel Coward

Still shocking to me to see why anyone should feel otherwise.

“Who lies for you will lie against you.” —Bosnian Proverb

Beware  for that is so true, it is happening even now. Politicians be honest to yourself and honest to the people and leave the rest of the fight for the supreme power.

I rather have a few honest friends, men and women of character, integrity, than a bunch of hypocrites, double faced friends. Honest will help you select your friends.

“Before the truth can set  you free you need to recognize which lie is holding you hostage.” —

That’s why it is important to know the truth   

“It’s simple… Never lie to someone who trusts you, and never trust someone who lies to you.”

This called for making use of your common sense.

“The vulnerability that honesty requires isn’t something that everybody can handle. Lying allows people to be comfortable.” —KUSHANDWIZOOM

I will rather allow my means to justify the end than otherwise. Being good is not a matter of convenience.

  1. The quote I like best is the one by Thomas Jefferson “honesty is the first chapter in the book of wisdom”. Honesty is always the way to live. I have seen people that get caught up in their own lies, and then have to tell more lies to cover it up, and it never works. Being honest means you can relax and look others in the eye without worrying that you might be found out. This is a great post and I love the quotes on wisdom. 

    1. Hi-Line, and thank you so very much for your candid comment on this post.  I like your remark, “Being honest means you can relax and look others in the eye without worrying that you might be found out. You stated it beautifully.  And that is true because a clear conscience does not fear any accusation. I know that this is a narrow path where very few have dared to take, I encourage us to remain steadfast to it. Hold your ground, cherish and defend them at all cost. 

      Thanks so much for sharing and remain

  2. After reading your article, I must wonder, am I an honest man? Let me review the section to determine whether I am an honest man or not.

    I deal honestly with people and people define me as a man of honesty. Is my life fulfilling, trusting and respected? I would say yes.

    I am not sure can realize confidence with my Korean boss, they do not conclude any action based on moral value.

    I hope that business, politics, religion and sports media desperately need decent men and women in leadership positions. But the truth is that everywhere, it is not the honest ones who lead.

    Thank you for your choice of quotes and words of wisdom to remind me and encourage me to live an honest life. As a Christian, I must be honest, treat others, whether they are Christian or not. 

    I found quotes that help me – First be true to yourself, and then you will be true to others. 

    I can’t have people lying to me.  I will do my best to be honest and honor the Lord, not me. If I’m lost in a world of lies, may God restore me to honesty.

    Your article is an alarm for me, but I am still able to tell myself truthfully. I hope your article can trigger alerts for everybody, especially business and politics can be run by honest men and women. 

    1. Stephen, thank you so much, for your candid excellent comment on this article. I must tell you, I felt so emotional while reading your comment!  Well, all I can say is do not allow the enemy who is the accuser of brethren to sow the seed of self-doubt and lack of self-confidence in you. 

      The mere fact that you have the desire, and self-awareness of who you are, matters most. But at the same time as a believer, you have to understand that we are still dealing with the flesh and its susceptibility for sin and worldliness. That’s why I believe that abiding in God’s word and grace gives us victory.

      What is required is living or acting on your belief, and Galatians 5:22-24, the fruit of Spirit provides us with an awesome way to live the Christian life. If we can apply that verse in our daily living, we will be victorious and affect others positively.

      In one of the quotes, it says, therefore, let us strive to live an honest life.

      “Honesty is more than not lying. It is truth-telling, truth speaking, truth living, and truth loving.” —James E. Faust
