Honesty is the best policy!

Honesty 

Truth exists; only falsehood has to be invented. ~ George Braque

The truth is more important than the facts. ~ Frank L. Wright
In the mountains of truth, you never climb in vain. ~ Nietzsche
Honesty is the first chapter in the book of wisdom. ~ Jefferson
One falsehood spoils a thousand truths. ~ Ashanti proverb
 
If you tell the truth, you have infinite power supporting you.

8 great reasons to tell the truth

1. Telling the truth lets everyone know what really happened. There’s less chances of misunderstandings, confusion, or conflict.
2. Telling the truth protects innocent people from being blamed or punished.
3. Telling the truth allows everyone to learn from what happened.
4. You usually get into less trouble for telling the truth than for lying (and getting caught).
5. Other people trust you more when you tell the truth.
6. You don’t have to tell more lies to keep your story straight.
7. You gain a reputation for being truthful – a trait that most people value.
8. Telling the truth helps you feel secure and peaceful inside.
I hope someone takes this message to heart today.
