The rare honesty

Honesty is a very expensive gift. Do not expect it from cheap people.

Warren Buffet

Well he should know, should he not?

True honesty is as uncommon as it is beatiful.

So do your best to be one of the honest people, you are sure to stick out.

Wisdom?

Honesty is the first chapter in the book of wisdom.

Thomas Jefferson

Here is a small story about the little lies in life that just don’t work out:

A woman rushed into a butcher shop at the end of the day. “I need a chicken to cook for dinner this evening,” she said.
“Well, you’re in luck,” the butcher replied. “I have a nice little bird right here. It weighs two pounds.”
The woman frowned. “That’s not quite large enough. Do you have another?”
The butcher walked into the freezer, muttering under his breath. He emerged moments later with the same chicken. “There’s also this one. It weighs three pounds.”
The woman fingered through the money in her purse and said, “Alright then, I’ll take both.”
The butcher turned red. He had only the one small chicken and a lot of explaining to do! He’d just learned the hard way that even the tiniest white lies have consequences.

About lies

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

Mark Twain

You can see this as extreme as you personally want but fact is: The more you speak the truth, the less problems your brain will have in conversations. Always thinking “Shit, what am I allowed to talk about” is stressful and a lot of work. Don’t make it so hard for you, just be honest and don’t lie around. There’s nothing wrong with making mistakes or not knowing things, but there surely is something wrong with lying about is as long as you can.
