Honest quotes by Joan D. Chittister
#1. Benedict sets up a community, a family. And families, the honest among us will admit, are risky places to be if perfection is what y ou are expecting in life. #Quote by Joan D. Chittister
Honest quotes by Sebastian Horsley
#2. I am a fraud. I have cobbled together my personality from hundreds of little bits. I am simultaneously the most genuine and the most artificial person you will ever meet. #Quote by Sebastian Horsley
Honest quotes by Lauren Barnholdt
#3. If there's one thing I've realized, it's that you have to be honest. Even if you're scared, even if you're worried that you're going to get your heart stomped on, even if you think that the truth is going to ruin everything, you have to put it out there. Because otherwise, you're fucked. #Quote by Lauren Barnholdt
Honest quotes by Eric Brown
#4. Well, to be honest I think I'm a better short story writer than a novelist. Novels I find very hard, hours and hours, weeks and weeks, of conscious thought - whereas short stories slip out painlessly in a few days. #Quote by Eric Brown
Honest quotes by Karen Witemeyer
#5. Tori chanced a glance out of the corner of her eye to the man at her side. His attention appeared riveted to the road in front of them. Good. He probably didn't even notice. His head suddenly swiveled her way as if he sensed her gaze. He winked at her. Winked! "I gotta say your stamina is impressive." His voice held a warm, teasing lilt. "I didn't think you'd make it past Mrs. Cooper's chicken farm with that iron-poker spine, and here you lasted three times as long." Tori stiffened, then realized the irony of the action and settled for pursing her lips instead. "I'm sure I have no idea what you are talking about." Mr. Porter chuckled. "And here I'd always thought you the honest type." Tori #Quote by Karen Witemeyer
Honest quotes by Plato
#6. The three wishes of every man: to be healthy, to be rich by honest means, and to be beautiful. #Quote by Plato
Honest quotes by J.H. Wyman
#7. The God-honest truth is that Jeff and I just do what we do. You have no control. We didn't have control last year, or the year before either, or the year before that. We can only do what we do, which is to make the show that we love, continue to follow the path for the stories that we want to tell, tell great and compelling stories, week-to-week, that interest our fans, and really hope for the best. #Quote by J.H. Wyman
Honest quotes by Nicki Minaj
#8. Being honest, if I had a daughter I wouldn't want her listening to a Nicki Minaj CD until she was a certain age. Even when I meet my fans and they tell me they are 12, I cringe a little. I always say, 'Listen. I don't want you saying the bad words, put school first.' #Quote by Nicki Minaj
Honest quotes by Jeanie Jenny Cameron
#9. Honest listening is one of the best medicines we can offer the dying and the bereaved. #Quote by Jeanie Jenny Cameron
Honest quotes by Brett Dennen
#10. What I strive to do with songwriting is be really honest, authentic and try to be open and share that with people. I choose that over trying to be clever, poetic, or lyrical. #Quote by Brett Dennen
Honest quotes by Greg Norman
#11. If you're serious about improving your play, be brutally honest with yourself. #Quote by Greg Norman
Honest quotes by Joel S. Goldsmith
#12. The reason that you cannot feel any progress in yourself is that you cannot feel spiritual. There is no such thing as a person's feeling spiritual. That is as impossible as feeling that you are honest or feeling that you are moral. #Quote by Joel S. Goldsmith
Honest quotes by Ayn Rand
#13. I am speaking to those among you who have retained some sovereign shred of their soul, unsold and unstamped: '- to the order of others'. If, in the chaos of the motives that have made you listen to the radio tonight, there was an honest, rational desire to learn what is wrong with the world, you are the man whom I wished to address. By the rules and terms of my code, one owes a rational statement to those whom it does concern and who are making an effort to know. Those who are making an effort to fail to understand me, are not a concern of mine. #Quote by Ayn Rand
Honest quotes by Shane Filan
#14. If I'm honest, I thought Westlife would keep going for longer than it did - we all did - but it sort of came to a natural end. When we decided we were going to split, I thought, 'If I'm going to sing, I'm going to have to do it solo.' Also, financially I was broke, so the decision was ultimately made for me. #Quote by Shane Filan
Honest quotes by Karen Traviss
#15. Do we get to do assassinations?"
"If we do, they never happened. You imagined them."
"Whoops. My trigger finger just slipped, Sarge. Honest. #Quote by Karen Traviss
Honest quotes by Robert Green Ingersoll
#16. At the bottom of religious persecution is the doctrine of self-defence; that is to say, the defence of the soul. If the founder of Christianity had plainly said: 'It is not necessary to believe in order to be saved; it is only necessary to do, and he who really loves his fellow-men, who is kind, honest, just and charitable, is to be forever blest' - if he had only said that, there would probably have been but little persecution. #Quote by Robert Green Ingersoll
Honest quotes by Nicole Kidman
#17. I do research. I do emotional sort of Method work. Somehow it's a huge mishmash of things that becomes my own acting process and my own way of navigating through something. But ultimately the desire is to be honest, and for that truth to bleed through into your work and onto the screen. #Quote by Nicole Kidman
Honest quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#18. Konstantin Levin regarded his brother as a man of immense intellect and culture, as generous in the highest sense of the word, and possessed of a special faculty for working for the public good. But in the depths of his heart, the older he became, and the more intimately he knew his brother, the more and more frequently the thought struck him that this faculty of working for the public good, of which he felt himself utterly devoid, was possibly not so much a quality as a lack of something - not a lack of good, honest, noble desires and tastes, but a lack of vital force, of what is called heart, of that impulse which drives a man to choose someone out of the innumerable paths of life, and to care only for that one. The better he knew his brother, the more he noticed that Sergey Ivanovitch, and many other people who worked for the public welfare, were not led by an impulse of the heart to care for the public good, but reasoned from intellectual considerations that it was a right thing to take interest in public affairs, and consequently took interest in them. Levin was confirmed in this generalization by observing that his brother did not take questions affecting the public welfare or the question of the immortality of the soul a bit more to heart than he did chess problems, or the ingenious construction of a new machine. #Quote by Leo Tolstoy
Honest quotes by Leonard Ravenhill
#19. You know, people say that today. "I am a saved sinner." That is like saying you are a married bachelor. That is like saying you are an honest thief, or a pure harlot. you can't be a saved sinner. You are either saved or you are a sinner. He came. "Thou shalt call his name Jesus. He shall save his people from their sins." #Quote by Leonard Ravenhill
Honest quotes by Emily Ruskovich
#20. Kindness that is nothing special is the rarest and most honest. #Quote by Emily Ruskovich
Honest quotes by Alison Goodman
#21. I have come to understand that I have offended you with my honest about your power,' he said. 'I am not accustomed-' He paused and rubbed his chin. 'I mean apart from my father, there has been no one whose opinion I was required to consider. And I've never had to'-his finger traced the edge of the pearl-'pursue a woman.'
Was the emperor apologizing to me?
He took a deep breath. 'I cannot take back those words-we both know they were the truth-but I regret that I caused you hurt.' He reached across and took my hand. 'And they did not take into account the importance I place upon your role as Niaso. Eona, you are the moon balance to my sun. #Quote by Alison Goodman
Honest quotes by Robert M. Pirsig
#22. Dad?"
"What?" A small bird rises from a tree in front of us.
"What should I be when I grow up?"
The bird disappears over a far ridge. I don't know what to say. "Honest," I finally say. #Quote by Robert M. Pirsig
Honest quotes by J.L. Vallance
#23. I always look to the eyes; they seem to be the one honest thing about a person. #Quote by J.L. Vallance
Honest quotes by Genevieve Bujold
#24. The main thing in acting is honesty, to feel the humanity and get to the essence of the character. You can't put anything into a character that you haven't got within you. #Quote by Genevieve Bujold
Honest quotes by Joe Swanberg
#25. I think in general I personally have a tendency to protect other people's feelings, and I've noticed that becomes a major hindrance to communication. It's better to just be honest, even if it's painful. #Quote by Joe Swanberg
Honest quotes by Elizabeth Warren
#26. It matters whether the government blows tens of billions of dollars on tax loopholes for billionaires or whether that same money is used to lower costs for students who have to borrow money to go to college. It matters whether Wall Street can pocket billions of dollars by cheating people on mortgages and tricking them on credit cards or if there's a cop on the beat to keep them honest. It matters whether the minimum wage is set so low that a full-time worker still lives in poverty or if minimum wage also means a livable wage. When #Quote by Elizabeth Warren
Honest quotes by David James Duncan
#27. The truth is I'm in a place without a bright side or a one best thing. I'm in a place where, honest to God, you feel you can kill your friends just by asking the names of stars. #Quote by David James Duncan
Honest quotes by Rebecca Onie
#28. If we are honest with ourselves and listen quietly ... we all harbor one fiercely held aspiration for our healthcare - that it keep us healthy. #Quote by Rebecca Onie
Honest quotes by John Hodgman
#29. Don't concentrate on becoming a better humor writer, just concentrate on being the best writer that you can become. If you're funny, the work will end up being funny. And if you're not funny, the work will still end up being good. Concentrate on being the most honest writer you can be, and let everything else follow--because it will. #Quote by John Hodgman
Honest quotes by C.S. Pacat
#30. Damen's grip tightened in helpless reflex, his forehead bent to Laurent's neck as the heat of that admission pulsed through him. He wanted Laurent fully against him. He wanted to feel every cooperative muscle, every encouraging movement, so that every time he looked at Laurent he would remember that he had been like this. His arm slid around Laurent's chest, thigh fit against thigh. Damen's grip, still oiled, was wrapped around the hottest, most honest part of Laurent. Laurent's body responded, moving, finding its own pleasure. They were moving together. It #Quote by C.S. Pacat
Honest quotes by Gore Vidal
#31. Seward appreciated the honest and open way that Stanton lied; it was the hallmark of the truly great lawyer, and demonstrated a professional mastery not unlike his own. #Quote by Gore Vidal
Honest quotes by J.R.R. Tolkien
#32. Gandalf: Confound it all, Samwise Gamgee. Have you been eavesdropping?
Sam: I ain't been droppin' no eaves sir, honest. I was just cutting the grass under the window there, if you'll follow me.
Gandalf: A little late for trimming the verge, don't you think?
Sam: I heard raised voices.
Gandalf: What did you hear? Speak.
Sam: N-nothing important. That is, I heard a good deal about a ring, and a Dark Lord, and something about the end of the world, but ... Please, Mr. Gandalf, sir, don't hurt me. Don't turn me into anything ... unnatural. #Quote by J.R.R. Tolkien
Honest quotes by Josef Albers
#33. When we are honest - that's my saying - if we are honest then we will reveal ourselves. But we do not have to make an effort to be individualistic, different from others. #Quote by Josef Albers
Honest quotes by Russell Banks
#34. Through writing, through that process, they realize that they become more intelligent, and more honest and more imaginative than they can be in any other part of their life. #Quote by Russell Banks
Honest quotes by Robert Aris Willmott
#35. Honest fiction may be made to supplement the pulpit. #Quote by Robert Aris Willmott
Honest quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#36. Wish to deal with my most distinguished contemporaries, not personally or in a merely literary manner, but in relation to the real body of doctrine which they teach. I am not concerned with Mr. Rudyard Kipling as a vivid artist or a vigorous personality; I am concerned with him as a Heretic - that is to say, a man whose view of things has the hardihood to differ from mine. I am not concerned with Mr. Bernard Shaw as one of the most brilliant and one of the most honest men alive; I am concerned with him as a Heretic - that is to say, a man whose philosophy is quite solid, quite coherent, and quite wrong. #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Honest quotes by Claudia Gray
#37. Lucas had told me only one lie, ever; he kept the secret of black Cross because it wasn't his secret to tell. In every other way, he'd been honest with me and shared the hard truths nobody else thought I deserved to hear. #Quote by Claudia Gray
Honest quotes by Greg Forster
#38. Liberals and conservatives tend to view the economy in purely materialistic terms. They make growth, security, and prosperity ends in themselves. They exalt enlightened self-interest. They tell us that productive work is the fundamental source of human dignity.

But for Christians, (Greg) Forster insists, the materialistic view is a lie. The modern economic man is prone to workaholism, Envy, greed, anxiety, and a host of other ills. The great task for Christians is to become, broadly speaking, innovative entrepreneurs: people who are not only more productive in their work then there would be leaving neighbors, but also more creative, generous, honest, and humane. #Quote by Greg Forster
Honest quotes by Josie Silver
#39. He adjusts our hands, his fingers warm around mine.

And then he looks down at me, and his eyes say all the things he cannot. His gaze holds mine as we dance slowly, and I silently tell him that I'll always carry him in my heart, and he silently tells me that in another place, another time, we'd have been pretty damn close to perfect.

'For what it's worth' - his hand slips into my hair and he strokes his thumb along my jaw - 'and because we're finally being honest with each other, you're just about my favourite person in the world, and it was the single most spectacular kiss of my whole life. #Quote by Josie Silver
Honest quotes by Eleanor Roosevelt
#40. Someone once asked me what I regarded as the three most important requirements for happiness. My answer was: A feeling that you have been honest with yourself and those around you; a feeling that you have done the best you could both in your personal life and in your work; and the ability to love others. #Quote by Eleanor Roosevelt
Honest quotes by Noah Levine
#41. A good basic guideline for our speech (in relation to Ethical Conduct) is to reflect whether what we are saying is both true and useful. There may be times when we are honest in what we say, but our words are too brutal or harsh. And there may be other times when we are deliberately being kind with the words we choose, but what we are saying is not totally true. #Quote by Noah Levine
Honest quotes by Mohammed Sekouty
#42. Even crocodile has honest tears..sometimes #Quote by Mohammed Sekouty
Honest quotes by Ingmar Bergman
#43. I have always appreciated the honest brutality of the international film world. One need never doubt one's worth in the market. Mine was zero. #Quote by Ingmar Bergman
Honest quotes by Brennan Manning
#44. Getting honest with ourselves does not make us unacceptable to God. It does not distance us from God, but draws us to Him - as nothing else can - and opens us anew to the flow of grace. While Jesus calls each of us to a more perfect life, we cannot achieve it on our own. To be alive is to be broken; to be broken is to stand in need of grace. It is only through grace that any of us could dare to hope that we could become more like Christ. #Quote by Brennan Manning
Honest quotes by Atticus Poetry
#45. To be honest
you scare me
I'm terrified of letting you in
of seeing myself
more clearly through your eyes
wondering if I'm good enough
or if one day I'll lose you
but the truth is
not having you at all scares me more
than all the other truths of love
and that thought
makes me brave. #Quote by Atticus Poetry
Honest quotes by Kenneth Williams
#46. People need to be peppered or even outraged occasionally. Our national comedy and drama is packed with earthy familiarity and honest vulgarity. Clean vulgarity can be very shocking and that, in my view, gives greater involvement. #Quote by Kenneth Williams
Honest quotes by Carl Jung
#47. The utter failure came at the Crucifixion in the tragic words, 'My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?' If you want to understand the full tragedy of those words you must realize what they meant: Christ saw that his whole life, devoted to the truth according to his best conviction, had been a terrible illusion. He had lived it to the full absolutely sincerely, he had made his honest experiment, but it was nevertheless a compensation. On the cross his mission deserted him. But because he had lived so fully and devotedly he won through to the Resurrection body. #Quote by Carl Jung
Honest quotes by Bernie Sanders
#48. Vermonters often ask me whether I am pessimistic about the future of our country. My honest answer is that I am not. #Quote by Bernie Sanders
Honest quotes by Sarah Cross
#49. It was hard to be honest, to open up, and reveal something that sounded crazy. Because once you told someone the truth, that person had a piece of you - and they could belittle it, destroy it. They could turn your confession into a wound that never healed. #Quote by Sarah Cross
Honest quotes by Cornell Woolrich
#50. Well, this is the hardest part to believe; look, you can suspend me if you want to, but it's the God's honest truth. This man Tompkins came all the way down to where I was bending over the body at the foot of the stairs. I straightened up and covered him with my gun. It didn't faze him in the least, he kept moving right on past me toward the street-door. Not quickly, either; as slowly as if he was just going out for a walk. He said, 'It isn't my time yet. You can't do anything to me with that.' ("Speak To Me Of Death") #Quote by Cornell Woolrich
Honest quotes by Maxime Lagacé
#51. If you're truly honest with yourself, you'll disturb some people, some of the time. If you don't, you're a sheep. #Quote by Maxime Lagacé
Honest quotes by Jeff Greenfield
#52. It strikes me as a sound, honest statement for a prospective voter to say: 'Look, I haven't given this election a minute's thought, and it's just not fair for me to cancel out the vote of someone who actually gives a damn.' Indeed, it's not just sound and honest - it's the ethically responsible thing to do. #Quote by Jeff Greenfield
Honest quotes by Joe Abercrombie
#53. Brand stared in sick disbelief. He'd been sure among all those lads someone would speak, for they were honest enough. Or Hunnan would tell his part in it, for he was a respected master-at-arms. The king or the queen would draw out the truth, for they were wise and righteous. The gods wouldn't allow such an injustice to pass. Someone would do something. Maybe, like him, they were all waiting for someone else to put things right. #Quote by Joe Abercrombie
Honest quotes by J. Paul Getty
#54. It has always been my contention that an individual who can be relied upon to be himself and to be honest unto himself can be relied upon in every other way. #Quote by J. Paul Getty
Honest quotes by Michael Jackson
#55. I'm just a person who wants to be honest and do good, make people happy and give them the greatest sense of escapism through the talent God has given me. That's where my heart is, that's all I want to do. Just let me share and give, put a smile on people's faces and make their hearts feel happy. #Quote by Michael Jackson
Honest quotes by Meher Baba
#56. Live a sincere life; be natural, and be honest with yourself. #Quote by Meher Baba
Honest quotes by Charlize Theron
#57. Tommy [ Lee Jones] doesn't suffer fools easily. I think everybody knows that, but I have great respect for someone that's very direct and very honest. I don't have thin skin so I'm okay with that. #Quote by Charlize Theron
Honest quotes by Robert A. Heinlein
#58. ...too many facts hamper a diplomat, especially an honest one."
"I'm not especially honest."
"But you have no talent for dishonesty, so your refuge must be ignorance and stubbornness. You have the latter; try to preserve the former. #Quote by Robert A. Heinlein
Honest quotes by Toni Braxton
#59. It sometimes makes me feel sexy to wear something revealing. But I have gone too far. I have to be honest about that. #Quote by Toni Braxton
Honest quotes by Tim Wise
#60. Being asked to describe what 'post-racial' means is a bit like being asked to describe a leprechaun, cold fusion or unicorns: we know what is meant, but, if we are willing to be honest, we also know that none of the four describe something real, something tangible, something true. #Quote by Tim Wise
Honest quotes by Robert Green Ingersoll
#61. Tell me there is a God in the serene heavens that will damn his children for the expression of an honest belief! More men have died in their sins, judged by your orthodox creeds, than there are leaves in all the forests in the wide world ten thousand times over. Tell me these men are in Hell; that these men are in torment; that these children are in eternal pain, and that they are to be punished forever and forever! I denounce this doctrine as the most infamous of lies. #Quote by Robert Green Ingersoll
Honest quotes by M.C. Scott
#62. Corbulo: a name to conjure with, a name to follow into battle, wherever he led; a name to have a man marching to the gates of Rome, crying Imperator! until the crowds and the idiot senate and the corrupt wax-brains of the Praetorian Guard and every other man with voting powers in the city came to understand what we already knew: that this man should be our emperor, that Rome would thrive under his rule, in place of the fool who presently held the throne.
Corbulo, who stood before us that bright, brisk spring afternoon and watched as our centurions bawled us through our paces, and then as Cadus took charge and marched us through the display that we had been practising, if we were honest, for the last four years, just for this moment. #Quote by M.C. Scott
Honest quotes by Beccy Cole
#63. Rainbows is a pretty honest look at my approach to life and love. While I admit to not exactly being an angel, I do try and live life to the fullest and give as much as I can of myself in the process #Quote by Beccy Cole
Honest quotes by Arnold Schwarzenegger
#64. The secret is contained in a three-part formula I learned in the gym: self confidence, a positive mental attitude, and honest hard work. #Quote by Arnold Schwarzenegger
Honest quotes by Henry Miller
#65. No more peeping through keyholes! No more masturbating in the dark! No more public confessions! Unscrew the doors from their jambs! I want a world where the vagina is represented by a crude, honest slit, a world that has feeling for bone and contour, for raw, primary colors, a world that has fear and respect for its animal origins. I'm sick of looking at cunts all tickled up, disguised, deformed, idealized. Cunts with nerve ends exposed. I don't want to watch young virgins masturbating in the privacy of their boudoirs or biting their nails or tearing their hair or lying on a bed full of bread crumbs for a whole chapter. #Quote by Henry Miller
Honest quotes by Cynthia Hand
#66. This meant that Alexander's side business was actually the revenge business. Though to be completely honest, he had just the one customer, himself. #Quote by Cynthia Hand
Honest quotes by S.L. Jennings
#67. I'm a lot of things – crass, stubborn, brutally honest, egotistical – but one thing I am not, is careless. I know my boundaries, and I never cross them. In a business where lines can be easily blurred, those boundaries are outlined in black Sharpie, traced in gasoline, then set the fuck on fire, ensuring that no one even gets close enough to inhale the fumes of temptation.
Yet, here I am, touching, tempting, tasting the limits. Begging to get burned by an angel with a halo of fire. #Quote by S.L. Jennings
Honest quotes by Robert Graves
#68. I happened to notice that among the men who had willingly presented themselves for jury-service was one whom I knew to be the father of seven children. Under a law of Augustus's he was exempt for the rest of his life; yet he had not pleaded for exemption or mentioned the size of his family. I told the magistrate: "Strike this man's name off. He's a father of seven." He protested: "But, Caesar, he has made no attempt to excuse himself." "Exactly," I said, "he wants to be a juryman. Strike him off." I meant, of course,that the fellow was concealing his immunity from what every honest man considered a very thankless and disagreeable duty and that he therefore was almost certain to have crooked intentions. Crooked jurymen could pick up a lot of money by bribes, for it was a commonplace that one interested juryman could sway the opinions of a whole bunch of uninterested ones; and the majority verdict decided a case. #Quote by Robert Graves
Honest quotes by Katee Robert
#69. It's okay if you're intimidated by my overwhelming masculinity. I promise to take good care of you."
"How sweet of you. But let's be honest. I'd ruin you for other women, and I'm just too nice to do that to an adorable thing like you. #Quote by Katee Robert
Honest quotes by Munia Khan
#70. If you are a finger, your honesty is the hand to make your existence worth living. #Quote by Munia Khan
Honest quotes by Dorothea Benton Frank
#71. Fortitude is a value missing in our society today. There is a reality about sticking things out for a better day to dawn that is not cliché, but honest-to-God good advice that we should all weigh and consider #Quote by Dorothea Benton Frank
Honest quotes by Curt Gowdy
#72. I thought it was terrible. I don't know who to believe. Williams was very loyal and honest. Nobody could ever say different. Sometimes, that got him into a lot of trouble. But after he died and they cut his head off, that made me sick. #Quote by Curt Gowdy
Honest quotes by Jesse Harris
#73. To be honest, making albums is really never easy. It's always a bit excruciating because there's always this fight to make it great, and then you hit these stumbling blocks along the way. #Quote by Jesse Harris
Honest quotes by G.S. Jennsen
#74. Semantics, Admiral. I'd appreciate an honest answer."

"I'd appreciate a multitude of honest answers, but I rarely expect to receive them." Miriam sighed; the verbal tete-a-tete was growing tiresome. Time to bring an end to it with, ironically, honesty. #Quote by G.S. Jennsen
Honest quotes by Rob Bell
#75. When we get to what happens when we die, we don't have any video footage. So let's at least be honest that we are speculating, because we are. #Quote by Rob Bell
Honest quotes by Coolio
#76. But when I really look back on my life, being really honest about it and now that I've got the chance to travel the world, seeing how a lot of little kids grow up - my life wasn't so bad. #Quote by Coolio
Honest quotes by Laurie Perez
#77. Step into the center of the center of the center - right into your Now - and see: how elegant and honest this moment is. Just being yourself, a world to hold your feet, a universe to lift your gaze, a heart beating - constant, in the center of it all. #Quote by Laurie Perez
Honest quotes by Terry Pratchett
#78. Untruthful?" said Ridcully. "Me? I'm as honest as the day is long! Yes, what is it this time?" Ponder had tugged at his robe and now he whispered something in his ear. Ridcully cleared his throat. "I am reminded that this is in fact the shortest day of the year," he said. "However, this does not undermine the point that I just made, although I thank my colleague for his invaluable support and constant readiness to correct minor if not downright trivial errors. I am a remarkably truthful man, sir. Things said at University council meetings don't count. #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Honest quotes by Donald Miller
#79. Unless we're honest with each other, we can't connect. We can't be intimate. #Quote by Donald Miller
Honest quotes by Thierry Henry
#80. I am always honest, and I am not the sort of player to say, 'Oh, I love Arsenal' and then sign for someone else. I think if I was unhappy, I would say that, but I'm not. I do love Arsenal. #Quote by Thierry Henry
Honest quotes by Richard Hornby
#81. Emotional release by itself, no matter how "real," "honest," etc. the emotion may be, is never enough to create a character ... such release has no artistic form. #Quote by Richard Hornby
Honest quotes by Jenny Lawson
#82. I control it by being painfully honest about just how crazy I am. I control it by allowing myself to hide in bathrooms and under tables during important events. And sometimes I control it by letting it control me, because I have no other choice. #Quote by Jenny Lawson
Honest quotes by Charles Neider
#83. I was as hurt by this as if I were engaged in some honest occupation. There is nothing surprising about this. Human beings feel dishonor the most, sometimes, when they most deserve it. #Quote by Charles Neider
Honest quotes by David Brooks
#84. First, they had good character. They were energetic, honest, and dependable. They were persistent after setbacks and acknowledged their mistakes. #Quote by David Brooks
Honest quotes by Max Lucado
#85. Confession is a radical reliance on grace. A proclamation of our trust in God's goodness. "What I did was bad," we acknowledge, "but your grace is greater than my sin, so I confess it." If our understanding of grace is small, our confession will be small: reluctant, hesitant, hedged with excuses and qualifications, full of fear of punishment. But great grace creates an honest confession. #Quote by Max Lucado
Honest quotes by Imogen Binnie
#86. It's a problem, you grow up reading about punk and grunge and earnest dude rock in all the magazines andinternalizing the idea that artifice is totally bullshit, man, and we wear these clothes because they're comfortable, not for any kind of fashion statement, and we're just trying to communicate, not be cool, and then you transition and realize, oh shit, there is going to have to be some intentionality in the way I present my body and my actions. I am going to have to break the patterns of clothing and voice and hair I've had in place all my life if I'm ever going to be read the way I want to be read. Like, it would be nice to believe that you could just exist, just be some true, honest, essential self. But you only really get to have a true honest essential self if you're white, male, het, and able-bodied. Otherwise your body has all these connotations and you don't get the benefit of the doubt. #Quote by Imogen Binnie
Honest quotes by Jim Clyburn
#87. We are hopeful about the opportunities ahead, and stand ready to join this President in an open and honest dialogue about improving the state of our union for all Americans not the select few. #Quote by Jim Clyburn
Honest quotes by Michael Haneke
#88. To be perfectly honest, I think that as I'm growing older, I'm just growing more impatient. I'll be very happy if at some point people say, 'Michael's grown wiser and softer in his old age.' But we'll have to wait and see what my next project is. #Quote by Michael Haneke
Honest quotes by Alexander Ostrovsky
#89. To pronounce something clever and honest is not such a big deal, lots of them have been said and written. For a statement of truth to be effective and for it to make people wiser, it has to be filtered through the soul of a highest quality, the soul of an artist. #Quote by Alexander Ostrovsky
Honest quotes by Jane Harper
#90. The the street was quiet again. Country quiet.

That's partly what took city natives like the Whitlams by surprise, Falk thought: the quiet. He could understand them seeking out the idyllic country lifestyle, a lot of people did. The idea had an enticing, wholesome glow when it was weighed out from the back of a traffic jam, or while crammed into a gardenless apartment. They all had the same visions of breathing fresh clean air and knowing their neighbors. The kids would eat home-grown veggies and learn the value of an honest day's work.

On arrival, as the empty moving truck disappeared form sight, they looked around and were always taken aback by the crushing vastness of the open land. The space was the thing that hit them first. There was so much of it. There was enough to drown in. To look out and see not another soul between you and the horizon could be a strange and disturbing sight.

Soon, they discovered that the veggies didn't grow as willingly as they had in the city window box. That every single green shoot had to be coaxed and prized from the reluctant soil, and the neighbors were too busy doing the same on an industrial scale to muster much cheer in their greetings. There was no daily bumper-to-bumper commute, but there was also nowhere much to drive to.

Falk didn't blame the Whitlams, he'd seen it many times before when he was a kid. The arrivals looked around at the barrenness and the scale and the sheer bloody hardne #Quote by Jane Harper

#91. If some people are so hungry for a feeling of importance that they actually go insane to get it, imagine what miracle you and I can achieve by giving people honest appreciation this side of insanity. #Quote by Dale Carnegie
Honest quotes by Charles F. Glassman
#92. I'd rather someone be honest and tell me something that I didn't want to hear, rather than dishonest and tell me something I want to hear. #Quote by Charles F. Glassman
Honest quotes by Elisabeth Elliot
#93. A few clear pronouncements on one side and a few honest questions on the other had, in a matter of minutes, shown me that life was not going to be as simple, ever again, as I had thought. #Quote by Elisabeth Elliot
Honest quotes by Jonathan Jackson
#94. That's what rock music is, I think - constantly searching for authenticity, and being as honest as possible. #Quote by Jonathan Jackson
Honest quotes by Danielle Brooks
#95. My biggest thing is telling a truthful story, something that is rooted in something and is very honest. If I read a script and you want me to take off my top, and it doesn't serve a purpose, then I'm not going to do it. #Quote by Danielle Brooks
Honest quotes by Wes Fesler

Honest quotes by Mia Sheridan
#97. Fairy tales helped me disappear into worlds where princes were loyal and honest and where princesses were strong and brave. #Quote by Mia Sheridan
Honest quotes by Irvine Welsh
#98. Ah don't really know, Tam, ah jist dinnae. It kinday makes things seem mair real tae us. Life's boring and futile. We start aof wi high hopes, then we bottle it. We realise that we're aw gaunnae die, withoot really findin oot the big answers. We develop aw they long-winded ideas which just interpret the reality ay oor lives in different weys, withoot really extending oor body ay worthwhile knowledge, about the big things, the real things. Basically, we live a short, disappointing life; and then we die. We fill up oor lives wi shite, things like careers and relationships tae delude oorsels that it isnae totally pointless. Smack's an honest drug, because it strips away these delusions. Wi smack, whin ye feel good, ye feel immortal. Whin ye feel bad, it intensifies the shite that's already thair. It's the only really honest drug. It doesnae alter yer consciousness. It just gies ye a hit and a sense ay well-being. Eftir that, ye see the misery ay the world as it is, and ye cannae anaesthetise yirsel against it. #Quote by Irvine Welsh
Honest quotes by Al Capone
#99. I got nothing against the honest cop on the beat. You just have them transferred someplace where they can't do you any harm. But don't ever talk to me about the honor of police captains or judges. If they couldn't be bought they wouldn't have the job. #Quote by Al Capone
Honest quotes by Deyth Banger
#100. To be honest the future of The Life of One Kid... won't go very far... but I won't only put books/films.... and so on and so on... and some short stories I am going to put... from my darkness. #Quote by Deyth Banger
Honest quotes by Zadie Smith
#101. And in the past, Archie wondered, was it just that fewer people cheated? Were they more honest, and did they leave their front doors open, did they leave their kids with the neighbors, pay social calls, run up tabs with the butcher? The funny thing about getting old in a country is people always want to hear that from you. They want to hear it really was once a green and pleasant land. They need it. #Quote by Zadie Smith
Honest quotes by J. Aleksandr Wootton
#102. Fairytales teach children that the world is fraught with danger, including life-threatening danger; but by being clever (always), honest (as a rule, but with common-sense exceptions), courteous (especially to the elderly, no matter their apparent social station), and kind (to anyone in obvious need), even a child can succeed where those who seem more qualified have failed.
And this precisely what children most need to hear.
To let them go on believing that the world is safe, that they will be provided for and achieve worthwhile things even if they remain stupid, shirk integrity, despise courtesy, and act only from self-interest, that they ought to rely on those stronger, smarter, and more able to solve their problems, would be the gravest disservice: to them, and to society as a whole.
-On the Supposed Unsuitability of Fairytales for Children #Quote by J. Aleksandr Wootton
Honest quotes by Mohammad Salman B. Sanayon
#103. If you know that by improving a certain skill, you will get you the job you want, work on it until you see the results. It is difficult to start, but when you see results, you'll never want to give up - you create your individuality. Be honest with yourself and continue to improve upon your uniqueness. #Quote by Mohammad Salman B. Sanayon
Honest quotes by James Russell Lowell
#104. This imputation of inconsistency is one to which every sound politician and every honest thinker must sooner or later subject himself. The foolish and the dead alone never change their opinion. #Quote by James Russell Lowell
Honest quotes by James T. Hubbell
#105. The artist's role is to do what is honest for them. So if you're in New York and everyone is looking at the floor, you can look up. It's not your role to follow the others. It's your role to go to your centre and then reflect that, not just to be a mirror to what's happening. #Quote by James T. Hubbell
Honest quotes by Justin Chon
#106. To be honest, I'm really into folk music, and I love Big Phony. I like Priscilla Ahn, and yeah, I really support Asian-American artists. #Quote by Justin Chon
Honest quotes by Andrew Carnegie
#107. I have never known a concern to make a decided success that did not do good, honest work, and even in these days of fiercest competition, when everything would seem to be a matter of price, there lies still at the root of great business success the very much more important factor of quality. The effect of attention to quality, upon every man in the service, from the president of the concern down to the humblest laborer, cannot be overestimated. #Quote by Andrew Carnegie
Honest quotes by Simon Baker
#108. I try to be straightforward and honest with my kids, and I believe nothing beats good old hard work. #Quote by Simon Baker
Honest quotes by Sarah Dessen
#109. Fifteen minutes later, a meeting was called.
"Okay, look." Deb's face was dead serious. "I know I just joined this project, and I don't want to offend anyone. But I'm going to be honest. I think you've been going about this all wrong."
"I'm offended," Dave told her flatly. #Quote by Sarah Dessen
Honest quotes by George Washington
#110. I hope I shall possess firmness and virtue enough to maintain what I consider the most enviable of all titles, the character of an honest man. #Quote by George Washington
Honest quotes by Guy Deutscher
#111. Gladstone's was neither the first nor the last of great minds to be led astray by religious fervor, but in the case of his Studies on Homer, his convictions took the particular unfortunate turn of trying to marry Homer's pagan pantheon with the Christian creed. ... The Times was not amused: "Perfectly honest in his intentions, he takes up a theory, and no matter how ridiculous it is in reality, he can make it appear respectable in argument. Too clever by half! #Quote by Guy Deutscher
Honest quotes by Jackie Kessler
#112. If Melissa Miller were an artist, she would have painted the world in vicious streaks of red. Nothing like Picasso's rose period, all soft and cheerful and so optimistic that it made you want to puke. Missy's red phase would have been brutal and bright enough to cut your eyes. Missy's art would have been honest. #Quote by Jackie Kessler
Honest quotes by Jack R. Rose

Honest quotes by Bill Hader

Honest quotes by Stephen Richards
#117. Someone once asked me if I knew the feeling of fear. Oh, I knew fear. Well, really speaking I never feared any fucker at that time; I've got to be honest. But I knew fear, the fear of losing! There was never any fear of combat! My father instilled that fear in to me and that was what drove me on to win ... the fear of what was to come after you went home saying you'd lost! #Quote by Stephen Richards
Honest quotes by Vimala McClure

Honest quotes by Sarina Bowen

Honest quotes by Raquel Cepeda
#120. Listen kid, it's just you and me now, so let's help each other out. Always be honest with me, and show me how to be the mother and father I never had. I'll make a mess of things sometimes, and I'm sorry in advance, but I'll try. My word is bond. #Quote by Raquel Cepeda
Honest quotes by Prince William

Honest quotes by Henry George
#122. He who by an exertion of mind or body, adds to the aggregate of enjoyable wealth, increases the sum of human knowledge, or gives to human life higher elevation or greater fullness - he is, in the larger meaning of the words, a " producer," a " working man," a " laborer," and is honestly earning honest wages. #Quote by Henry George

Honest quotes by Joyce Tenneson
#124. I seek what lies beneath surface beauty. What interests me are intimate human complexities - the darkness as well as the light. I cannot will this kind of transcendent communication into existence. I have to be open and truly present, and if I am lucky, grace descends. My best photographs are an honest collaboration, and when the viewer also connects, I feel the circle is complete. #Quote by Joyce Tenneson
Honest quotes by Stephanie Clifford
#125. I just wanted to be open and honest, and being open and honest is a practice rather than a quality. #Quote by Stephanie Clifford
Honest quotes by Abby Jimenez
#126. She was like a unicorn. A mythical creature. An honest, no-drama woman who didn't bullshit and drank beer and cussed and didn't care about what people thought of her. She was a unicorn, tucked in the body of an attractive woman with a great ass.
And I couldn't have her. #Quote by Abby Jimenez
Honest quotes by Bill Nighy
#127. When a movie is called 'searingly honest,' it's almost invariably grim and demonstrates how bad things can get. #Quote by Bill Nighy
Honest quotes by Danka V.
#128. As far as boyfriends were concerned, I dated, had a lot of
meaningless relationships and that was pretty much it. It was really
hard to find a decent guy. A guy that would be worthwhile. They
were all great in the beginning, sweet and caring, sensitive and
romantic. But if you scratched deeper, you would find NOTHING.
Plenty of nothing. Sometimes one might even be surprised just how
much nothing there was, but not me. No. Somehow, I had learned
to brace myself for the worst. But, to be honest, it wasn't always
the case. Some of the guys weren't that empty beneath the surface,
some even proved to be quite the opposite. True-Prince-charming
kind of guys... And their girlfriends! They were even more charming
princesses when they found out. Well, I guess we all have our little
flaws... So, after some time, I was finally coming to terms with the
genuine truth that there was no such thing as a perfect boyfriend.
On the other hand, Melina was waiting for her prince on a
white horse, and was honestly expecting him to show up single. No
matter how many times I'd tried to convince her that all a girl gets
from that prince-on-a-white-horse fairytale is actually and inevitably
a horse and no prince, she never believed that. #Quote by Danka V.
Honest quotes by Mark Twain
#129. This morning arrives a letter from my ancient silver-mining comrade, Calvin H. Higbie, a man whom I have not seen nor had communication with for forty-four years ... [Footnote: Roughing It is dedicated to Higbie.] ... I shall allow myself the privilege of copying his punctuation and his spelling, for to me they are a part of the man. He is as honest as the day is long. He is utterly simple-minded and straightforward, and his spelling and his punctuation are as simple and honest as he is himself. He makes no apology for them, and no apology is needed. #Quote by Mark Twain
Honest quotes by Marjorie M. Liu
#130. I am not a total pervert. Although, to be honest, consider the night we've been having. First handcuffs, and
now this? Way more kinky than I expected."
"Please," M'cal said. "Do not talk."
"You like the strong and silent type, huh?"
"If you do not shut up, I will kill you with my voice."
"I love it when you talk dirty."
"Fine. Which would you prefer to lose first? Your soul or your testicles?"
"You know, you're just a bit obsessed with chopping off balls. Do you have issues with your masculinity? #Quote by Marjorie M. Liu
Honest quotes by Sarah Dessen
#131. I think having a good agent is key. I've been with mine for ten years now, and she's very honest with me. There are a lot of times I've sent her books that were not so good because I was tired of writing, or panicked about money, and she's told me flat out, "You don't want this to be your next book. Trust me." #Quote by Sarah Dessen
Honest quotes by Taylor Schilling
#132. It takes a lot of bravery to be authentic and honest and to take that social mask off in order to connect with another human being. So much of what makes us who we are is smoothed away online. And what truly connects us is the wrinkles, not the smoothness. #Quote by Taylor Schilling
Honest quotes by Leon Uris

Honest quotes by Melanie Harlow
#134. But had it been the wine? Maybe it was something else. I was no math expert, but this was an intoxicating equation: Hot Guy with Mysterious Past + Way With Pretty Words x Chivalry at Beach / His Aloofness at Coffee Shop (Immunity to My Face & Flirty Efforts) + Innuendo at Hardware Store x Honest Confession about OCD Struggles - > Curiosity + Arousal (Belly Flutters + Pulse Quickening)=ATTACKISS. #Quote by Melanie Harlow
Honest quotes by Durjoy Datta

Honest quotes by Cornell Woolrich

Honest quotes by Maggie Stiefvater
#140. Jeong. You never say the word, but you live it anyway. I will be honest, I did not expect to find it in a guy such as yourself. It's like we've met each other before. No, not really. We are friends at once, we would instantly do what friends would do for each other. Not just pals. Friends. Blood brothers. You just feel it. We instead of you and me. That's jeong. #Quote by Maggie Stiefvater
Honest quotes by Stephen King

Honest quotes by Gena Showalter
#143. When you were little, what did you want to be when you grew up?" ( ... )
A sigh of longing. "To be honest, I wanted to be ruler of the entire world. Or the ruler's trophy wife. #Quote by Gena Showalter
Honest quotes by Truman Capote
#144. It's a bore, but the answer is good things only happen to you if you're good. Good? Honest is more what I mean. Not lawtype honest
I'd rob a grave, I'd steal two-bits off a dead man's eyes if I thought it would contribute to the day's enjoyment
but unto-thyself-type honest. Be anything but a coward, a pretender, an emotional crook, a whore: I'd rather have cancer than a dishonest heart. Which isn't being pious. Just practical. Cancer may cool you, but the other's sure to. #Quote by Truman Capote
Honest quotes by Matthew Kahn
#145. One of the most commonly overlooked spiritual practices is daring to be completely honest with everyone you encounter. Some may say others cannot handle their honesty, but true honesty is not a strategy or a weapon of any kind. It is the willingness to be open and absolutely transparent in sharing how any moment feels in your heart. It has nothing to do with confrontation, accusation, or any form of blame. True honesty is the willingness to stand completely exposed, allowing the world to do what it may, and say what it will, only so you may know who you are - beyond all ideas. #Quote by Matthew Kahn
Honest quotes by Winna Efendi
#146. Being afraid is part of living, Rory, just as much as being scared is part of being courageous. You can only be happy when you're brutally honest with yourself. #Quote by Winna Efendi
Honest quotes by Michael J. Shank
#147. It takes muscle and a shovel to read the Bible. It takes a heart that's willing to dig. It takes an honest heart that's willing to lay aside preconceived ideas. #Quote by Michael J. Shank
Honest quotes by Thomas Hardy
#148. Tess's feminine hope - shall we confess it - had been so obstinately recuperative as to revive in her surreptitious visions of a domiciliary intimacy continued long enough to break down his coldness even against his judgement. Though unsophisticated in the usual sense, she was not incomplete; and it would have denoted deficiency of womanhood if she had not instinctively known what an argument lies in propinquity. Nothing else would save her, she knew, if this failed. It was wrong to hope in what was of the nature of strategy, she said to herself; yet that sort of hope she could not extinguish. His last representation had now been made, and it was, as she said, a new view. She had truly never though so far as that, and his lucid picture of possible offspring who would scorn her was one that brought deadly conviction to an honest heart which was humanitarian to its centre. Sheer experience had already taught her that, in some circumstances, there was one thing better than to lead a good life, and that was to be saved from leading any life whatever. Like all who have been previsioned by suffering, she could, in the words of M. Sully-Prudhomme, hear a penal sentence in the fiat, 'You shall be born,' particularly if addressed to potential issue or hers. #Quote by Thomas Hardy
Honest quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#149. All countries must be governed by the modern people; they must be governed by the progressive people; they must be governed by those who believe in the reason and science; they must be governed by the compassionate and just, by the ethical and honest, by the nonviolent and peaceful people; they must be governed by the libertarians; they must be governed by the people who believe in the enlightenment and who refuse to shape the society based on some childish religious stories! #Quote by Mehmet Murat Ildan
Honest quotes by Henry Fielding
#150. Conscience is a judge in every man's breast, which none can cheat or corrupt, and perhaps the only incorrupt thing about him; yet, inflexible and honest as this judge is (however polluted the bench on which he sits), no man can, in my opinion, enjoy any applause which is not there adjudged to be his due. #Quote by Henry Fielding
Honest quotes by Chelsea Handler

Honest quotes by Noel Fisher
#152. I really loved Michelangelo. I've always been a little partial to Donatello to be honest, especially with the animated series. There's just something about Donnie that I really like. But, you know, Mikey's also Mikey. It's kind of just a given he's the most fun one. #Quote by Noel Fisher

Honest quotes by Chila Woychik
#156. Let's face it: suffering discredits goodness. I'm agnostic in practice though faith-based in theory. I used to pray but now know he'll do what he darn well pleases when he darn well pleases. Will he listen? Maybe. We have a book that says so, but how much happens beyond that book, I can't say. That's agnosticism in its bleakest and most honest form. Don't judge me, yet believe me when I tell you that years of abuse tend to wring out every ounce of one's ability to understand and adhere to faith in standard form. #Quote by Chila Woychik
Honest quotes by Adam Green

Honest quotes by Rod Serling
#158. I suppose we think euphemistically that all writers write because they have something to say that is truthful and honest and pointed and important. And I suppose I subscribe to that, too. But God knows when I look back over thirty years of professional writing, I'm hard-pressed to come up with anything that's important. Some things are literate, some things are interesting, some things are classy, but very damn little is important. #Quote by Rod Serling
Honest quotes by David Ogden Stiers

Honest quotes by Lionel Trilling
#160. We live, understandably enough, with the sense of urgency; our clock, like Baudelaire's, has had the hands removed and bears the legend, "It is later than you think." But with us it is always a little too late for mind, yet never too late for honest stupidity; always a little too late for understanding, never too late for righteous, bewildered wrath; always too late for thought, never too late for naïve moralizing. We seem to like to condemn our finest but not our worst qualities by pitting them against the exigency of time. #Quote by Lionel Trilling
Honest quotes by Gavin De Becker
#161. Ernest Becker writes, "The urge to heroism is natural, and to admit it honest. For everyone to admit it would probably release such pent-up force as to be devastating to society." Well, #Quote by Gavin De Becker
Honest quotes by Pema Chodron
#162. As long as we don't want to be honest and kind with ourselves, then we are always going to be infants. When we begin just to try to accept ourselves, the ancient burden of self-importance lightens up considerably. Finally there's room for genuine inquisitiveness, and we find we have an appetite for what's out there. #Quote by Pema Chodron
Honest quotes by Thomas Keller
#163. I drank more wine when I wasn't working as much, to be honest. #Quote by Thomas Keller
Honest quotes by Tony Alessandra

Honest quotes by Chil Rajchman
#165. I become almost wild and shout at them: - To whom are you reciting Kaddish? Do you still believe? And what do you believe, whom are you thinking? Are you thanking the Lord for his mercy and taking away our brothers and sisters, our fathers and mothers? No, no! It is not true; there is no God. If there were a God, he would not allow such misfortune, such transgression, where innocent small children, only just born, or killed, by people who want only to to honest work and make themselves useful to the world are killed! and you, living witnesses of the great misfortune, remain thankful. Whom are you thanking? #Quote by Chil Rajchman
Honest quotes by Andre Vltchek
#166. Donald Trump is horrendous, but he is also honest. Both Presidents [Bill] Clinton and [Barak] Obama were great speakers, but unrepentant mass murderers. #Quote by Andre Vltchek
Honest quotes by Craig D. Lounsbrough
#167. What excites us the most or likewise scares us the most is when something is exactly what it says it is. And when it comes to Christmas, we're going to end up finding ourselves on one side of that line or the other. #Quote by Craig D. Lounsbrough
Honest quotes by Aravind Adiga
#168. An honest politician has no goodies to toss around. This limits his effectiveness profoundly, because political power in India is dispersed throughout a multi-tiered federal structure; a local official who has not been paid off can sometimes stop a billion-dollar project. #Quote by Aravind Adiga

Honest quotes by Walter Scott
#170. Those who remarked in the countenance of this young hero a dissolute audacity mingled with extreme haughtiness ... could not yet deny to his countenance that sort of comeliness which belongs to an open set of features, well formed by nature, modeled by art to the usual rules of courtesy, yet so far frank and honest, that they seemed as if they disclaimed to conceal the natural working of the soul. #Quote by Walter Scott
Honest quotes by Bebe Neuwirth
#171. I know when I'm bad, I know when I'm good, and I know when I'm everything in between. I don't have any delusions of grandeur or delusions of failure. In terms of my work, I've got a pretty cold honest eye. #Quote by Bebe Neuwirth
Honest quotes by Pema Chodron
#172. Even though there are so many teachings, so many meditations, so many instructions, the basic point of it all is just to learn to be extremely honest and also wholehearted about what exists in your mind - thoughts, emotions bodily sensations, the whole thing that adds up to what we call "me" or "I". #Quote by Pema Chodron
Honest quotes by Slobodan Milosevic

Honest quotes by Paloma Faith
#176. Anything that's on television as often as someone on 'The X Factor' is what's successful. That doesn't mean that I condone that or think that it's right. To be honest, I'd be the first to say I think it's a shame. But if that's the way it is then that's the way it is. #Quote by Paloma Faith

Honest quotes by Larry David
#181. In those days, reserve duty lasted for six years, which, I might add, was three times as long as service in the regular army, although to be perfectly honest, I was unable to fulfill my entire obligation because I was taking acting classes and they said I could skip my last year. #Quote by Larry David

#186. Will:"You know, when two people narrowly escape falling to their deaths, they usually have something to talk about, Even if they hadn't met before that moment, they usually have something to sayto each other afterward. But you haven't said anything to me. I've been tryingto give you some time. I've been trying to give you some space. All I want is-"
Ivy:"Thank you. Thank you for risking your life. Thank you for saving me."
"That's not what I wanted! Gratitude is the last thing I-"
"Well, let me tell you what I want, Honesty."
"When haven't I been honest? When?"
"I found your note, Will. I know you blackmailed Gregory. I didn't tell the police yet, but I will."
"So tell them, go ahead! It's old news to them, but if you've got the note, it's one more piece for the police files. I just don't get- Wait a minute. Do you think- You couldn't really think I did that to make money, could you?"
"That's usually why people blackmail."
"You think I'd betray you like that? Ivy I set up that blackmail--I got the Celentanos to help me out, and i videotaped it-so that i had something to take to the police." "Back in August when you were in the hospital, Gregory called me and told me you had tried to commit suicide. I couldn't believe it. I knew how much you missed Tristan, but I knew you were a fighter, too. I went to the train station that morning to look around and try to figure out what had gone through your head. As i was leaving I found the jacket #Quote by Elizabeth Chandler
Honest quotes by Bill Vaughan

Honest quotes by Melody Beattie
#191. There's a secret to get through loss, pain and grief. If we're alone we can't see who we are. When we join the club, other people become the mirror. Through them, we see ourselves and gain an understanding of what we're going through. Then slowly, real slowly, we learn to accept who we see in the mirror. Then you become the mirror for them; by being honest about who you are, you'll help them learn to love and accept themselves. #Quote by Melody Beattie

Honest quotes by Richelle E. Goodrich
#198. Ian was a good man - honest, trustworthy, loyal, and of honorable character. His desire to keep his promise to Angelle and to be a respectable servant of Harrowbeth would always take president over any personal feelings, no matter how intense or gratifying they might be. He would never betray Harrowbeth. He would never cheat Derian or Angelle. He would never deceive his queen, even if in so doing he would find a love and happiness they both longed to share. His commitment to what he saw as right meant more. #Quote by Richelle E. Goodrich
Honest quotes by Patrick Rothfuss

Honest quotes by Alexander Solschenizyn
#200. It has been known for centuries that Hunger . . . rules the world! (And all your Progressiv Doctrine is, incindentally, built on Hunger, on the thesis that hungry people will inevitable revolt against the well-fed.) Hunger rules every human being, unless he has himself consciously decided to die. Hunger, which forces an honest person to reach out and steal ("When the belly rumbles, conscience flees"). Hunger, which compels the most unselfish person to look with envy into someone else's bowl, and to try painfully to estimate what weight of ration his neighbor is receiving. Hunger, which darkens the brain and refuses to allow it to be distracted by anything else at all, or to think about anything else at all, or to speak about anything else at all except food, food, and food. Hunger, from which it is impossible to escape even in dreams -- dreams are about food, and insomnia is over food. #Quote by Alexander Solschenizyn
