Quotes 5 - Lies and honesty

We tell lies when we are afraid...Afraid of what we dont know, afraid
of what others will think, afraid of what will be found out about us.
But every time we tell a lie, the thing that we fear grows stronger.......
  -Ruth Carter-Bourdon-

Honesty consists of the unwillingness to lie to others;
maturity, which is equally hard to attain, consists of
the unwillingness to lie to oneself.

- Sydney J. Harris

Honesty has a beautiful and refreshing simplicity about it. No ulterior motives.
No hidden meanings. An absence of hypocrisy, duplicity, political games, and
verbal superficiality. As honesty and real integrity characterize our lives, there
will be no need to manipulate others.
Chuck Swindoll

We know the truth, not only by
the reason, but also by the heart.
- Blaise Pascal

It is better to ultimately succeed with the truth
than to temporarily succeed with a lie.
-Adrian Rodgers
