Honesty quotes by Bess Streeter Aldrich
#7. ...And how that girl did talk against time to make us think she was crazy about her Louie. She called attention to his honesty and his ability and his nose and the shape of his feet and his blue blood and his energy and what-have-you, and all the time, I was dying to quote that smart old Billy Shakespeare who was just as wordy as she was: 'Methinks the lady doth protest too much. #Quote by Bess Streeter Aldrich
Honesty quotes by Sherwood Smith
#8. If you're rebelling, then you must have someone in mind for the throne. Who?"
Bran pointed across the table at Shevraeth. "He seems to want to do it, and I have to say, he'd be better at it than I."
"No, he wouldn't," I said without thinking.
Bran winced and rubbed his chin. "Mel…"
"Please, my dear Lord Branaric," the Prince murmured. "Permit the lady to speak. I am interested to hear her thoughts on the matter."
Rude as I'd been before, my response had shocked even me, and I hadn't intended to say anything more. Now I sneaked a peek at the Marquis, who just sat with his goblet in his fingers, his expression one of mild questioning.
I sighed, short and sharp. "You'd be the best because you aren't Court trained," I said to Bran. It was easier than facing those other two. "Court ruined, I'd say. You don't lie--you don't even know how to lie in social situations like this. I think it's time the kingdom's leader is known for honesty and integrity, not for how well he gambles or how many new fashions he's started. Otherwise we'll just be swapping one type of bad king for another."
Bran drummed his fingers on the table, frowning. "But I don't want to do it. Not alone, anyway. If you are with me--"
"I'm not going to Remalna-city," I said quickly.
All three of them looked at me--I could feel it, though I kept my own gaze on my brother's face. His eyes widened. I said, "You're the one who always wanted to go there. I've been. Once. It's n #Quote by Sherwood Smith
Honesty quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#9. Congratulate yourself if you have done something strange, extravagant and broken the monotony. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Honesty quotes by Ayn Rand
#10. Integrity is the recognition of the fact that you cannot fake your consciousness, just as honesty is the recognition of the fact that you cannot fake existence. #Quote by Ayn Rand
Honesty quotes by Tucker Carlson
#11. Living in Washington, you can't take politics too seriously. I draw the line at honesty. I have no time for political hacks who say things they don't believe because they get paid to. #Quote by Tucker Carlson
Honesty quotes by Salman Rushdie
#12. With death comes honesty. #Quote by Salman Rushdie
Honesty quotes by Georgette Heyer
#13. My goddess! My queen!'
'Oh, no, no, no!'
He raised his head, smiling a little crookedly down at her. 'Do you dislike to hear yourself called so? There is nothing I would not do to please you, but you cannot help but be my goddess! You have been so these seven years!'
'Only a goddess could dislike it! You see by that how wretchedly short of the mark I fall. I have a little honesty - enough to tell you *now* that you must not worship me.'
He only laughed, and kissed her again. She protested no more, too much a woman not to be deeply moved by such idolatry, and awed by the constancy which, though it might have been to a false image, could not be doubted. #Quote by Georgette Heyer
Honesty quotes by Elizabeth Berg
#14. And there is such honesty and innocence to her voice I want to hold her. The bedside lamplight is a rich golden color, and it is falling on her face in a way that makes it seem gilded. For a moment, L.D. looks to me like an angel. Another case of illusion only being the larger truth. #Quote by Elizabeth Berg
Honesty quotes by Rasheed Ogunlaru
#15. Authenticity is hard to fake #Quote by Rasheed Ogunlaru
Honesty quotes by Robert M. Pirsig
#16. 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
Honesty quotes by Thomas Browne
#17. Live by old Ethicks and the classical Rules of Honesty. Put no new names or notions upon Authentick Virtues and Vices. Think not that Morality is Ambulatory; that Vices in one age are not Vices in another; or that Virtues, which are under the everlasting Seal of right Reason, may be Stamped by Opinion. And therefore though vicious times invert the opinion of things, and set up a new Ethicks against Virtue, yet hold thou unto old Morality; and rather than follow a multitude to do evil, stand like Pompey's pillar conspicuous by thyself, and single in Example of Virtue; since no Deluge of Vice is like to be so general but more than eight will escape; Eye well those Heroes who have held their Heads above Water, who have touched Pitch, and have not been defiled, and in the common Contagion have remained uncorrupted. #Quote by Thomas Browne
Honesty quotes by Genevieve Bujold
#18. 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
Honesty quotes by Anne McCaffrey
#19. Harper to your word be true
Holder, crafter you also hew
To honesty, integrity, and respect
All others without regard to intellect #Quote by Anne McCaffrey
Honesty quotes by Lois McMaster Bujold
#20. Honesty is the only way with anyone, when you'll be so close as to be living inside each other's skins. #Quote by Lois McMaster Bujold
Honesty quotes by Mark Schatzker
#21. Can these foods [low-fat, vitamin-enriched, etc] even be called "healthy"? Perhaps we should think about it this way: If you cut a batch of pharmaceutical-grade cocaine with chai, you could say with some degree of honesty that it is "healthier," "less addictive," and "now with chai!" But would you say it's "good for you"? #Quote by Mark Schatzker
Honesty quotes by Abraham Lincoln
#22. If once you forfeit the confidence of your fellow-citizens, you can never regain their respect and esteem. #Quote by Abraham Lincoln
Honesty quotes by Charles F. Glassman

Honesty quotes by Thomas More

To the executioner: 'Pick up thy spirits, Man, and be not afraid to do thyne office; my neck is very short; take heed, therefore thou strike not awry, for saving of thyne honesty.' #Quote by Thomas More
Honesty quotes by Joseph Muscat
#26. What the people out there are calling for is honesty which has been missing for quite some time now. We are tired of all the deceit and incompetence of this government. #Quote by Joseph Muscat
Honesty quotes by Yogi Bhajan
#27. Our purpose in this life is to live in higher consciousness and to teach others to live in higher consciousness. But the best test to that consciousness is humility, selflessness, and sweetness. When you teach, teach with honesty, truthfulness, and straightforwardness. As a teacher, never compromise. As a man, always compromise. The teacher who compromises is an idiot; a person who does not compromise is an idiot. Because the teacher does not teach for himself, but for the higher consciousness. And higher consciousness will never compromise with lower consciousness. This is a straight law and that has to be considered as a law; that has to be observed as a law. #Quote by Yogi Bhajan
Honesty quotes by Stephen King
#28. The world has given me a good life since then, I won't deny it, but sometimes I hate the world, anyway. Dick Cheney, that apologist for water boarding and for too long chief preacher in the Holy Church of Whatever it Takes, got a brand-new heart while I was writing this - how about that? He lives on; other people have died. #Quote by Stephen King
Honesty quotes by Maxime Lagacé
#29. 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
Honesty quotes by J. Paul Getty
#30. 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
Honesty quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#31. I think if you wanted a peaceful marriage and orderly household, you should have proposed to any one of the well-bred simpletons who've been dangled in front of you for years. Ivo's right: Pandora is a different kind of girl. Strange and marvelous. I wouldn't dare predict-" She broke off as she saw him staring at Pandora's distant form. "Lunkhead, you're not even listening. You've already decided to marry her, and damn the consequences."
"It wasn't even a decision," Gabriel said, baffled and surly. "I can't think of one good reason to justify why I want her so bloody badly."
Phoebe smiled, gazing toward the water. "Have I ever told you what Henry said when he proposed, even knowing how little time we would have together? 'Marriage is far too important a matter to be decided with reason.' He was right, of course."
Gabriel took up a handful of warm, dry sand and let it sift through his fingers. "The Ravenels will sooner weather a scandal than force her to marry. And as you probably overheard, she objects not only to me, but the institution of marriage itself."
"How could anyone resist you?" Phoebe asked, half-mocking, half-sincere.
He gave her a dark glance. "Apparently she has no problem. The title, the fortune, the estate, the social position... to her, they're all detractions. Somehow I have to convince her to marry me despite those things." With raw honesty, he added, "And I'm damned if I even know who I am outside of them."
"Oh, my dear..." Ph #Quote by Lisa Kleypas
Honesty quotes by David Whyte
#32. Honesty is reached through the doorway of grief and loss. #Quote by David Whyte
Honesty quotes by Alfred North Whitehead
#33. There are no whole truths; all truths are half-truths. It is trying to treat them as whole truths that plays the devil. #Quote by Alfred North Whitehead
Honesty quotes by Munia Khan
#34. If you are a finger, your honesty is the hand to make your existence worth living. #Quote by Munia Khan
Honesty quotes by Claudia Acevedo
#35. When a person is connected to its true essence, there is nothing more rewarding than continuously developing it; there is no money that can buy the pleasure of putting into practice the talents each person has. #Quote by Claudia Acevedo
Honesty quotes by Abbi Glines
#36. I sank down onto the bed against the headboard and leaned back. I crossed my legs underneath me. "Then we'll talk." I said with a smile. Rush sat down onto the bed and leaned back against the wall. A deep chuckle came from his chest and I watched as a real smile broke out on his face. "I can't believe I just begged a female to sit and talk to me." In all honesty, I couldn't either. #Quote by Abbi Glines
Honesty quotes by Michael David Lukas
#37. She hadn't lied. She hadn't betrayed anyone's trust; still, she felt she had done something wrong. Or rather, she had not yet done the right thing. Was there a difference between these two sins? #Quote by Michael David Lukas
Honesty quotes by G.S. Jennsen
#38. 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
Honesty quotes by Alessandro Baricco

Honesty quotes by Hilary Flower
#43. I want my girls to see their relationship with me as a place of refuge, a place they can retreat to for honesty, unconditional love, and support. I want to teach them and have them trust me, not fear me. I want to preserve the gentle souls that I see in them. -Liz. M. #Quote by Hilary Flower
Honesty quotes by Marty Vaughn
#44. When you lie things become harder to grasp, but honesty will take you right to the thing you desire. #Quote by Marty Vaughn
Honesty quotes by Thomas Kretschmann
#45. Acting is all about truth and honesty, and the sensitivity that's capable of transporting you. #Quote by Thomas Kretschmann
Honesty quotes by Thomas Huxley
#46. It ought not to be unpleasant to say that which one honestly believes or disbelieves. That it so constantly is painful to do so, is quite enough obstacle to the progress of mankind in that most valuable of all qualities, honesty of word or of deed. #Quote by Thomas Huxley
Honesty quotes by Charles F. Glassman
#47. 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

Honesty quotes by Joo

Honesty quotes by Daniel W. Jones
#55. The spirit of the whites was really devilish; they seemed determined to drive the Indians to the wall, not one had spoken a word in their behalf. . . I told the whites that they demanded of the natives, what none of them could do; that if they were required to make all their wrongs right that they had committed for the last two years, it would bankrupt them morally and financially. . . I referred to the virtue and honesty of the Pimas when the whites first came among them, showing that all their vile degradation and dishonesty was copied from the white man. Also, that many now present were corrupt and immoral, much more so than the average Indian. #Quote by Daniel W. Jones
Honesty quotes by William James
#56. Of all the beautiful truths pertaining to the soul None is more gladdening or fruitful than to know You can regenerate and make yourself what you will. #Quote by William James
Honesty quotes by Marie Coulson
#57. You had me Jared. I gave you all of me and I gave it willingly but from the first time we met you lied, hid and kept things from me. We didn't have honesty and without it our foundations crumbled, taking us down with it. I have cried a river of tears over you and I can't do it anymore. I don't think I will ever stop loving you, no matter how heartbreakingly hard I try to. But it's not enough. Let me go. #Quote by Marie Coulson
Honesty quotes by Alexandra Elle
#58. There is no love without respect.
There isn't much truth if spoken without genuine honesty. #Quote by Alexandra Elle
Honesty quotes by Moliere
#59. A shoemaker, in making a pair of shoes, cannot spoil a scrap of leather without having to bear the loss; but in our business we may spoil a man without its costing us a farthing. The blunders are never put down to us, and it is always the fault of the fellow who dies. The best of this profession is, that there is the greatest honesty and discretion among the dead; for you never find them complain of the physician who has killed them. #Quote by Moliere
Honesty quotes by Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
#60. A conscious understanding of the kind of cloth we wear, each moment of time, makes us be aware of what we must do or what we should never think of doing because of the cloth we wear! #Quote by Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
Honesty quotes by Marianne Williamson
#61. A spiritual relationship is not necessarily one in which two people are smiling all the time. Spiritual means to be above all else, authentic. Real work can only occur in the presence of rigorous honesty We all long for that, but we're afraid of communicating honestly with another person because we think they'll leave us if they see who we really are. #Quote by Marianne Williamson
Honesty quotes by Henry George
#62. 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
Honesty quotes by John Fowles
#63. I acquired expensive habits and affected manners. I got a third-class degree and a first-class illusion: that I was a poet. But nothing could have been less poetic that my seeing-through-all boredom with life in general and with making a living in particular. I was too green to know that all cynicism masks a failure to cope-- an impotence, in short; and that to despise all effort is the greatest effort of all. But I did absorb a small dose of one permanently useful thing, Oxford's greatest gift to civilized life: Socratic honesty. It showed me, very intermittently, that it is not enough to revolt against one's past. One day I was outrageously bitter among some friends about the Army; back in my own rooms later it suddenly struck me that just because I said with impunity things that would have apoplexed my dead father, I was still no less under his influence. The truth was I was not a cynic by nature, only by revolt. I had got away from what I hated, but I hadn't found where I loved, and so I pretended that there was nowhere to love. Handsomely equipped to fail, I went out into the world. #Quote by John Fowles
Honesty quotes by Joel M. McMains
#64. They were as different as honesty and truth, but it takes experience to see the dissimilarities. Rocky was friendly, outgoing and boisterous; Charger was sullen, withdrawn and paranoid. Rocky liked people; Charger didn't. Rocky could trust; Charger didn't know the meaning of the word. #Quote by Joel M. McMains
Honesty quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#65. We are franker towards others than towards ourselves. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Honesty quotes by Wes Fesler
#66. In time, lies bring turmoil, where honesty brings peace. #Quote by Wes Fesler
Honesty quotes by Novoneel Chakraborty
#67. Honesty is the essence of every successful relationship. #Quote by Novoneel Chakraborty
Honesty quotes by Bill Thrall
#68. Character – the inner world of motives and values that shapes our actions – is the ultimate determiner of the nature of our leadership. It empowers our capacities while keeping them in check. It distinguishes those who steward power well from those who abuse power. Character weaves such values as integrity, honesty, and selfless service into the fabric of our lives, organizations, and cultures. #Quote by Bill Thrall
Honesty quotes by Lamine Pearlheart
#69. A bank is but honesty with a premium. At least this is what it is supposed to be. #Quote by Lamine Pearlheart
Honesty quotes by Amaka Imani Nkosazana
#70. Do not allow another person to set you back. Continue moving forward not backwards. When someone pulls you back, be like the arrow to a bow and spring forth greater than ever. And, what they thought would be your disadvantage, you turn it into your advantage. #Quote by Amaka Imani Nkosazana
Honesty quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#71. I might point out that the rich do not so much buy honesty as curtains to cover dishonesty. #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Honesty quotes by Truman Capote
#72. 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
Honesty quotes by Matthew Kahn
#73. 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
Honesty quotes by Nicholaa Spencer
#74. I need to know something, and I need you to answer me in full honesty." Cullan said, breaking the silence. Alynna nodded.

"When you saw me kissing that woman...were you jealous?"

Alynna looked in his eyes. Was I jealous? She asked herself.

"Yes, I was."

Cullan heard enough. He raised his head and brushed his thumb against Alynna's soft lips. Just that simple admission from her made him feel alive, as if it was all he had been waiting for a long time. #Quote by Nicholaa Spencer
Honesty quotes by Tomi Adeyemi
#75. The truth cuts like the sharpest knife I've ever known. #Quote by Tomi Adeyemi
Honesty quotes by Marcus Tullius Cicero
#76. Where is there dignity unless there is honesty? #Quote by Marcus Tullius Cicero
Honesty quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#77. Honesty is overrated. As someone once said, 'Secrecy is the first essential in affairs of the heart.' "
"It was the Duc de Richelieu," said Lillian, who had read the same book of philosophy during their schoolroom lessons. "And the accurate quote is, 'Secrecy is the first essential in affairs of the State.' "
"He was French, though," Daisy argued. "I'm sure he meant the heart as well. #Quote by Lisa Kleypas
Honesty quotes by Siri Hustvedt
#78. Even in fiction, I feel rigorous honesty applies. It doesn't apply to facts; it applies to what I think of as not telling emotional lies, which is a funny business. #Quote by Siri Hustvedt
Honesty quotes by Whit Woodard
#79. Integrity, honesty, reverence toward God, avoidance of evil and consistent religious affection are graces that ought to characterize the servant of God. They are not developed instantly, but result from the consistently demonstrable growth of a "new creation"30 in Christ. #Quote by Whit Woodard
Honesty quotes by Don Peppers
#80. Being trustworthy requires: Doing the right thing. And doing things right. #Quote by Don Peppers
Honesty quotes by Harvey S. Firestone
#81. I believe fundamental honesty is the keystone of business. #Quote by Harvey S. Firestone
Honesty quotes by Jane Austen
#82. But the inexplicability of the General's conduct dwelt much on her thoughts. That he was very particular in his eating, she had, by her own unassisted observation, already discovered; but why should he say one thing so positively, and mean another all the while, was most unaccountable. How were people, at that rate, to be understood? #Quote by Jane Austen
Honesty quotes by Rachel Thompson
#83. This is a book about fracture. About the experiences that make up a life. About the pieces of me.
Delving into naked emotion is a terrifying proposition. Digging into our souls to look for answers that may not be there is a ledge most of us avoid.
And yet, here I am. #Quote by Rachel Thompson
Honesty quotes by Paul Hoffman
#84. The man who believes that honesty is the best policy is not an honest man. #Quote by Paul Hoffman
Honesty quotes by Christopher Bollen
#85. We've come under the influence of television, where in all honesty we can follow a show that could just get cancelled midway through the season and the entire plotline never resolves itself. #Quote by Christopher Bollen
Honesty quotes by William Congreve
#86. No mask like open truth to cover lies, As to go naked is the best disguise. #Quote by William Congreve
Honesty quotes by Steven Pressfield
#87. The hack is like a politician who consults the polls before he takes a position. He's a demagogue. He panders. #Quote by Steven Pressfield
Honesty quotes by Richard P. Feynman
#88. By honest I don't mean that you only tell what's true. But you make clear the entire situation. You make clear all the information that is required for somebody else who is intelligent to make up their mind. #Quote by Richard P. Feynman
Honesty quotes by Elizabeth Chandler
#89. 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
Honesty quotes by Shanna Star
#90. Honesty with yourself about yourself is the only way to ensure you will create a different outcome by changing the roots of your thinking. You cannot change what you do not admit to. #Quote by Shanna Star
Honesty quotes by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
#91. An honest man nearly always thinks justly. #Quote by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
Honesty quotes by Pliny The Elder
#92. The largest land animal is the elephant, and it is the nearest to man in intelligence: it understands the language of its country and obeys orders, remembers duties that it has been taught, is pleased by affection and by marks of honour, nay more it possesses virtues rare even in man, honesty, wisdom, justice, also respect for the stars and reverence for the sun and moon. #Quote by Pliny The Elder
Honesty quotes by Christian Bale
#93. In honesty, there are probably a lot of stories that can be told with Batman. I like the idea of him growing older and he can't quite do it as much anymore. #Quote by Christian Bale
Honesty quotes by Ovid
#94. As the yellow gold is tried in fire, so the faith of friendship must be seen in adversity. #Quote by Ovid
Honesty quotes by Ernest Hemingway,
#95. A cat has absolute emotional honesty: human beings, for one reason or another, may hide their feelings, but a cat does not. #Quote by Ernest Hemingway,
Honesty quotes by David Foster Wallace
#96. The depressed person's therapist was always extremely careful to avoid appearing to judge or blame the depressed person for clinging to her defenses, or to suggest that the depressed person had in any way consciously chosen or chosen to cling to a chronic depression whose agony made her (i.e., the depressed person's) every waking hour feel like more than any person could possibly endure. This renunciation of judgment or imposed value was held by the therapeutic school in which the therapist's philosophy of healing had evolved over almost fifteen years of clinical experience to be integral to the combination of unconditional support and complete honesty about feelings which composed the nurturing professionalism required for a productive therapeutic journey toward authenticity and intrapersonal wholeness. Defenses against intimacy, the depressed person's therapist's experiential theory held, were nearly always arrested or vestigial survival-mechanisms; i.e., they had, at one time, been environmentally appropriate and necessary and had very probably served to shield a defenseless childhood psyche against potentially unbearable trauma, but in nearly all cases they (i.e., the defense-mechanisms) had become inappropriately imprinted and arrested and were now, in adulthood, no longer environmentally appropriate and in fact now, paradoxically, actually caused a great deal more trauma and pain than they prevented. Nevertheless, the therapist had made it clear from the outset that she #Quote by David Foster Wallace
Honesty quotes by Junot Diaz
#97. Sure, I liked girls but I was always too terrified to speak to them unless we were arguing or I was calling them stupidos, which was one of my favorite words that year. #Quote by Junot Diaz
Honesty quotes by Saaif Alam
#98. Mercy should be given once to a person and it is priceless. This person then should be very honest and should promise not to commit the same particular mistake again. #Quote by Saaif Alam
Honesty quotes by Emily Post
#99. An overdose of praise is like 10 lumps of sugar in coffee; only a very few people can swallow it. #Quote by Emily Post
Honesty quotes by James Comey
#100. In that moment, something else occurred to me: The "leader of the free world," the self-described great business tycoon, didn't understand leadership. Ethical leaders never ask for loyalty. Those leading through fear – like a Cosa Nostra boss- require personal loyalty. Ethical leaders care deeply about those they lead, and offer them honesty and decency, commitment and their own sacrifice. They have a confidence that breeds humility. Ethical leaders know their own talent but fear their own limitations-to understand and reason, to see the world as it is and not as they wish it to be. They speak the truth and know that making wise decisions requires people to tell them the truth. And to get that truth, they create an environment of high standards and deep consideration – "love" is not too strong a word – that builds lasting bonds and makes extraordinary achievement possible. It would never occur to an ethical leader to ask for loyalty. #Quote by James Comey

Honesty quotes by Casey McQuiston
#102. He's not afraid of anything he feels. He's not afraid of saying it. He's only afraid of what happens when he does. #Quote by Casey McQuiston
Honesty quotes by Toshikazu Kawaguchi
#103. When in the presence of someone with whom you have a bond, and to whom you have entrusted your feelings, it is hard to lie and get away with it. The truth just wants to come flowing out. This is especially the case when you are trying to hide your sadness or vulnerability. It is much easier to conceal sadness from a stranger, or from someone you don't trust. #Quote by Toshikazu Kawaguchi
Honesty quotes by Kenny Burrell
#104. I strive for honesty in playing what I feel. #Quote by Kenny Burrell
Honesty quotes by Cindy Skaggs
#105. Logan felt raw inside from the look of betrayal she had leveled on him. Who was he to demand honesty when every aspect of his presence in her life, even on the periphery, was a lie? #Quote by Cindy Skaggs
Honesty quotes by Traci LaRussa
#106. If there is anything I have learned, it is this - we must seek truth and goodness and stop stroking the ego of a crowd. In the words of C.S. Lewis, "Courage, dear heart. #Quote by Traci LaRussa

#107. All stories should have some honesty and truth in them, otherwise you're just playing about. #Quote by Nigel Kneale
Honesty quotes by Charles Lindbergh
#108. It is always easier to deal in truth and honesty and follow these to their legitimate ends, than it is to construct and adjust a false superstructure upon a false base. #Quote by Charles Lindbergh
Honesty quotes by Craig D. Lounsbrough
#109. To save myself I must face myself, which may be the hardest of all things to face. #Quote by Craig D. Lounsbrough
Honesty quotes by Vincent Scarpa
#110. And who could you tell about feeling ugly? You could tell no one, not without it seeming like the most desperate kind of bait. You said, Oh, I'm just terribly ugly, and everyone rushed in with their refusals, disallowing such - such what? Honesty? What a hollow and thoughtless gesture it was, to deny someone the acknowledgement of her own mediocrity. #Quote by Vincent Scarpa
Honesty quotes by Bob Dylan
#111. You say you've lost your faith
But that's not where it's at
You have no faith to lose and you know it #Quote by Bob Dylan
Honesty quotes by Steve Aylett
#112. Honesty is the voice that is acceptable in every matter. #Quote by Steve Aylett
Honesty quotes by Robert Greene
#113. The problem is that you often do not know your friends as well as you imagine. Friends often agree on things in order to avoid an argument. They cover up their unpleasant qualities so as to not offend each other. They laugh extra hard at each other's jokes. Since honesty rarely strengthens friendship, you may never know how a friend truly feels. Friends will say that they love your poetry, adore your music, envy your taste in clothes - maybe they mean it, often they do not. When you decide to hire a friend, you gradually discover the qualities he or she has kept hidden. Strangely enough, it is your act of kindness that unbalances everything. #Quote by Robert Greene
Honesty quotes by Pamela Morsi
#114. She wanted to be loved. But she deserved a relationship based on honesty, respect and consideration. Mazy was no longer willing to accept any romance that was not a pairing of equals. #Quote by Pamela Morsi
Honesty quotes by Derek Hough
#115. Lies always hurt.

Shirley made it clear to me that she would accept nothing but 100 percent honesty in our relationship. That slap across the face was an eye-opener. It made me feel that I didn't need to sneak around behind her back. It gave me the freedom for the first time in my life to let go of my secrets. It's a lesson that I continue to learn--if you lie, no matter how good your intentions, you carry the lie with you. It weighs you down, it holds you back, and you start to lose respect for yourself.
The biggest lies of all are those we tell ourselves. Every time you say, "I can't do that," "I don't have what it takes," "It's too late," or "I'm not good enough," you're keeping yourself from living your truth. This is always a tough one for me, and something I continually have to work on. Why do we lie to ourselves? Because a lie feels easy and comfortable. It keeps fear and pain away; it shields you from the unknown. But you deserve more. You deserve not to settle, not to be distracted, and not to deny yourself your highest potential. As the saying goes, "The truth shall set you free." Be honest about what you want, what you need, and what you're capable of. Tune out the negative voices in your head that hold you back. Change your mind, change yourself. #Quote by Derek Hough
Honesty quotes by Elana Johnson
#116. LAST YEAR,
Honesty and I still talked,
Planned weekend activities together.

Last year,
I used to have friends,

Last year,
Honesty lived,

But now -
Now I live with the knowledge that
Some things
Kill others #Quote by Elana Johnson

Honesty quotes by Patricia Highsmith
#119. Honesty, for me, is usually the worst policy imaginable. #Quote by Patricia Highsmith
Honesty quotes by Leigh Newman
#120. Maybe it's easier to think about dishonesty and what kind of trouble you can get into as a writer when love and honesty collide and you sidestep that collision, either because you want to protect somebody or you want to blame somebody - which are the usual impulses in love: protection and blame, frequently at the same time - so you don't exactly tell the truth. #Quote by Leigh Newman
Honesty quotes by Christopher Paolini
#121. It's better to be sworn to an honest fool than to a lying scholar #Quote by Christopher Paolini
Honesty quotes by Raymond Chandler
#122. There are people who can write their memoirs with a reasonable amount of honesty, and there are people who simply cannot take themselves seriously enough. I think I might be the first to admit that the sort of reticence which prevents a man from exploiting his own personality is really an inverted sort of egotism. #Quote by Raymond Chandler
Honesty quotes by Audre Lorde
#123. What gets me about the United States is that it pretends to be honest and therefore has so little room to move toward hope. #Quote by Audre Lorde

#124. You can't be spontaneous within reason. #Quote by Brittany DeLaBarrera
Honesty quotes by Will Durant
#125. The qualities of character can be arranged in triads, in each of which the first and last qualities will be extremes and vices, and the middle quality a virtue or an excellence. So between cowardice and rashness is courage; between stinginess and extravagance is liberality; between sloth and greed is ambition; between humility and pride is modesty; between secrecy and loquacity, honesty; between moroseness and buffoonery, good humor; between quarrelsomeness and flattery, friendship; between Hamlet's indecisiveness and Quixote's impulsiveness is self-control.49 "Right," then, in ethics or conduct, is not different from "right" in mathematics or engineering; it means correct, fit, what works best to the best result. The #Quote by Will Durant
Honesty quotes by Ana Claudia Antunes
#126. For there is no such thing:
Right person at the right time!
Instead with the right team,
Embrace Time that simply flies.
Never when meeting old friends
Does time really pass by?
In trust and truth they make amends
So Time they can really defy.
Hence, no one denies then:
In all it revitalizes.
Principled friendship never dies! #Quote by Ana Claudia Antunes
Honesty quotes by Randy Pausch
#127. If I only had three words of advice, they would be, Tell the Truth. If got three more words, I'd add, all the time. #Quote by Randy Pausch
Honesty quotes by Arthur Miller
#128. He'll come back. We all come back, kate. These private little revolutions always die. The compromise is always made. In a peculiar way. Frank is right
every man does have a star. The star of one's honesty. And you spend your life groping for it, but once it's out it never lights again. I don't think he went very far. He probably just wanted to be alone to watch his star go out. #Quote by Arthur Miller
Honesty quotes by Suzanne Brockmann
#129. Showtime,' Jamie said, heavy on the sh. 'You gonna tell her your real name or make something up? I always liked Ferd McGurgle. It's not one of those names you forget, where you have to stop and think, Now, who did I say I was again, Tom Smith or Bill Jones . . .?'
'Actually,' A.J. said, trying his best to ignore Jamie's help, 'you do know my name.' He cleared his throat as she looked puzzled, that little ever-present almost-smile ready to expand across her face. He exhaled and just said it. 'It's Gallagher.'
'Nicely done.' Jamie applauded. 'Good segue, good choice - honesty. Much better than Ferd. I'm proud of you, kid.'
But Allison was still puzzled, still about to smile, until she realized what he'd said. Her mouth dropped open, but she closed it fast. 'Gallagher?' she repeated and the smile was definitely gone. 'As in Gallagher?'
'As in Austin James Gallagher,' A.J. told her with a nod. 'I'm A.J. for short. I was named after my great-grandfather.' He lifted her file. 'Jamie. He dropped the Austin after he came west. Too many people thought he was from Texas, which kind of pissed him off.' He tried to make a joke. 'He'd met a few Texans he didn't particularly like, so . . .'
Yeah. #Quote by Suzanne Brockmann
Honesty quotes by Jaden Smith

Honesty quotes by Sara Teasdale
#131. When I can look life in the eyes, grown calm and very coldly wise, life will have given me the truth, and taken in exchange - my youth. #Quote by Sara Teasdale
Honesty quotes by William Faulkner
#132. The Lord can see into the heart. If it is His will that some folks has different ideas about honesty from other folks, it is not my place to question His decree. #Quote by William Faulkner
Honesty quotes by T.H. White
#133. I suppose one has to be desperate, to be a successful writer. One has to reach a rock-bottom at which one can afford to let everything go hang. One has got to damn the public, chance one's living, say what one thinks, and be oneself. Then something may come out. #Quote by T.H. White
Honesty quotes by Walter Isaacson
#134. (In a letter from Einstein to Curie) Do not laugh at me for writing you without having anything sensible to say. But I am so enraged by the base manner in which the publc is presently daring to concern itself with you that I absolutely must give vent to this feeling. I am impelled to tell you how much I have come to admire your intellect, your drive, and your honesty, and that I consider myself lucky to have made your personal acquaintance in Brussels. Anyone who does not number among these reptiles is certainly happy, now as before, that we have such personages amoung us as you, and Langevin too, real peole with whom one feels privileged to be in contact. If the rabble continues to occupy itself with you, then simply dont read that hogwash, but rather leave it to the reptile for whom it has been fabricated. #Quote by Walter Isaacson
Honesty quotes by Nelson Algren
#135. That's how it's always been: I was always in the clear so long as I was truly guilty. But the minute my motives were honest someone would finger me. #Quote by Nelson Algren
Honesty quotes by Sharon Kay Penman
#136. But in all honesty, I do not find it so peculiar a notion, that a Welshman should rule Wales. #Quote by Sharon Kay Penman
Honesty quotes by Anne Perry
#137. is not the time you spend with someone, it is what happens in that time. I have known people for years, and yet never met the real person inside, if there is one. Others I have spoken with for only an hour or two, and yet what was said had meaning and honesty that will last forever. #Quote by Anne Perry
Honesty quotes by Marty Rubin
#138. A cheerful readiness is what seems honest now, facing an uncertain future with humor, grace and dignity. #Quote by Marty Rubin
Honesty quotes by Nelson Mandela
#139. People tend to measure themselves by external accomplishments, but jail allows a person to focus on internal ones; such as honesty, sincerity, simplicity, humility, generosity and an absence of variety. You learn to look into yourself. #Quote by Nelson Mandela
Honesty quotes by Jane Austen
#140. There is not one in a hundred of either sex who is not taken in when they marry. #Quote by Jane Austen
Honesty quotes by Frances Vick
#141. Keep your confidence up. Read. Mostly though, you have to sit down each day for a few hours and write whether you feel like it or not - don't wait for inspiration. Writing is a job. Do your research. All that research will give your novel an edge, because you know what you're writing about, it will be authentic. Expect disappointment - your manuscript WILL be rejected - you'll have to develop a thick skin. But if you stick with it and write with honesty, energy and originality, you'll succeed. #Quote by Frances Vick
Honesty quotes by Douglas Petrie
#142. Glory: I look around at this world you're so eager to be a part of and all I see is six billion lunatics looking for the fastest ride out. Who's not crazy? Look around, everyone's drinking, smoking, shooting up, shooting each other, or just plain screwing their brains out 'cause they don't want 'em anymore. I'm crazy? Honey, I'm the original one-eyed chicklet in the kingdom of the blind, 'cause at least I admit the world makes me nuts. #Quote by Douglas Petrie
Honesty quotes by Jack Nicklaus
#143. If there is one thing golf demands above all else, it is honesty. #Quote by Jack Nicklaus
Honesty quotes by Philipp Melanchthon
#144. The eyes are witnesses that the heavens revolve in the space of twenty- four hours. But certain men, either from the love of novelty, or to make a display of ingenuity, have concluded that the earth moves; and they maintain that neither the eighth sphere nor the sun revolves ... Now, it is a want of honesty and decency to assert such notions publicly, and the example is pernicious. It is the part of a good mind to accept the truth as revealed by God and to acquiesce in it. #Quote by Philipp Melanchthon
Honesty quotes by Anne Lamott
#145. You don't always have to chop with the sword of truth. You can point with it too. #Quote by Anne Lamott
Honesty quotes by John Dominic Crossan
#146. I glimpse again that biblical rhythm of expansion-and-contraction, assertion-and-subversion. As that rhythm becomes ever clearer as the very heartbeat of the biblical tradition, we will see the basic solution for How to Read the Bible and Still Be a Christian. Read it all carefully and thoughtfully, recognize radicality's assertion, expect normalcy's subversion, and respect the honesty of a story that tells the truth. #Quote by John Dominic Crossan
Honesty quotes by Ray Lewis
#147. I like to see honesty out of people. People who are trustworthy. I like to see people who are involved with The Lord. #Quote by Ray Lewis

Honesty quotes by Caroline George
#150. Boys are unpredictable and stupid and brash. They do creepy, stalkerish things because they believe in extreme measures. They love to the fullest and ignore completely. They heal hearts and grind them to dust. To have nothing from a boy is devastating, but when he gives his all, the world becomes an electric place, and that is why women love them so - their all is worth the risk. #Quote by Caroline George
Honesty quotes by Maurice Sendak
#151. If there's anything I'm proud of in my work
it's not that I draw better; there's so many better graphic artists than me
or that I write better, no. It's
and I'm not saying I know the truth, because what the hell is that? But what I got from Ruth and Dave, a kind of fierce honesty, to not let the kid down, to not let the kid get punished, to not suffer the child to be dealt with in a boring, simpering, crushing-of-the-spirit kind of way. #Quote by Maurice Sendak
Honesty quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#152. You must pay for conformity. All goes well as long as you run with conformists. But you, who are honest men in other particulars, know that there is alive somewhere a man whose honesty reaches to this point also, that he shall not kneel to false gods, and, on the day when you meet him, you sink into the class of counterfeits. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Honesty quotes by C. JoyBell C.
#153. I continue to marvel at the reluctancy of people to look into the mirror and see all the darkness that's within them: all the deceit, the dishonesty, the insincerity, the lack, the need, the want, the lies ... they would rather look upon the mural of themselves that they've painted on the wall, and stare at that inanimate portrait of beauty, all the while telling themselves that it is the mirror image of them! This is a falsity, this is unreal! It is only when you turn to the unveiled mirror and bravely face your light and your darkness at once, that you will be able to see the true image of you! How can you pull the thorns from your skin if you are too afraid to open your eyes and look at them? You must open your eyes first, look at the thorns where they are piercing your flesh, and only then can you pull them out! #Quote by C. JoyBell C.
Honesty quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan

Honesty quotes by John Steinbeck
#159. It has always seemed strange to me," said Doc. "The things we admire in men, kindness and generosity, openness, honesty, understanding and feeling are the concomitants of failure in our system. And those traits we detest, sharpness, greed, acquisitiveness, meanness, egotism and self-interest are the traits of success. And while men admire the quality of the first they love the produce of the second. #Quote by John Steinbeck
Honesty quotes by Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu
#160. 'Birdman' came from a very beautiful side of me, from a part of honesty and surrender about things. #Quote by Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu
Honesty quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#161. Of the various executive abilities, no one excited more anxious concern than that of placing the interests of our fellow-citizens in the hands of honest men, with understanding sufficient for their stations. No duty is at the same time more difficult to fulfil. The knowledge of character possessed by a single individual is of necessity limited. To seek out the best through the whole Union, we must resort to the information which from the best of men, acting disinterestedly and with the purest motives, is sometimes incorrect. #Quote by Thomas Jefferson
Honesty quotes by John Taylor
#162. Show and prove to the world, to angels and to God, that you are on the side of truth and right, of honesty, purity and integrity, and that you are for God in His kingdom. #Quote by John Taylor
Honesty quotes by Zarina Bibi
#163. The world is on fire with hate- everyone is blaming one another saying that religion is responsible for it!
In all honesty, hate has no fate.
But greed does it needs money, its faith. #Quote by Zarina Bibi
Honesty quotes by Lisa Kerman
#164. Religion has normalized the massive side-step from logic and reason but this is just an escape from intellectual honesty. #Quote by Lisa Kerman
Honesty quotes by James E. Faust
#165. Honesty is a principle, and we have our moral agency to determine how we will apply this principle. We have the agency to make choices, but ultimately we will be accountable for each choice we make. We may deceive others, but there is One we will never deceive. From the Book of Mormon we learn, "The keeper of the gate is the Holy One of Israel; and he employeth no servant there; and there is none other way save it be by the gate; for he cannot be deceived, for the Lord God is his name." [2 Nephi 9:41] #Quote by James E. Faust

Honesty quotes by Flora Thompson
#167. Strict honesty was the policy of most of them; although there were a few who were said to 'find anything before 'tis lost' and to whom findings were keepings. #Quote by Flora Thompson
Honesty quotes by G. Willow Wilson
#168. In the West, anything that must be hidden is suspect; availability and honesty are interlinked. This clashes irreconcilably with Islam, where the things that are most precious, most perfect and most holy are always hidden: the Kaaba, the faces of prophets and angels, a woman's body, Heaven. #Quote by G. Willow Wilson
Honesty quotes by Gerrit Smith
#169. But I love honesty, and, therefore; do I make great account of facts. #Quote by Gerrit Smith
Honesty quotes by Charles Mackay
#170. Aid the dawning, tongue and pen; Aid it, hopes of honest men! #Quote by Charles Mackay
Honesty quotes by Vladimir Nabokov
#171. No doubt, he is horrible, he is abject, he is a shining example of moral leprosy, a mixture of ferocity and jocularity that betrays supreme misery perhaps, but is not conductive to attractiveness.
He is ponderously capricious.
Many of his casual opinions on people and scenery of this country are ludicrous.
A desperate honesty that throbs through his confession does not absolve him from sins of diabolical cunning.
He is abnormal.
He is not a gentleman.
But how magically his singing violin can conjure up a tendresse, a compassion for Lolita that makes us entranced with the book while abhorring it's author! #Quote by Vladimir Nabokov
Honesty quotes by Franchesca Ramsey
#172. As with any job, you don't just sit around achieving
all day- you have to put in hours. Until that point, whenever I saw someone doing something I wanted to do, I'd devote many of those hours to negative energy. I would try to convince myself that these strangers weren't worthy of the things I wanted instead of being honesty with myself about how they got there. #Quote by Franchesca Ramsey
Honesty quotes by Jessica Warman

Honesty quotes by Tammy Bruce
#174. My friendships and relationships in the conservative world are not predicated on political correctness and enforced conformity of thought. They are based, instead, on mutual respect, honesty and understanding - concepts many modern liberals should consider revisiting. #Quote by Tammy Bruce
Honesty quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#175. With your talents and industry, with science, and that steadfast honesty, which eternally pursues right, regardless of consequences, you may promise yourself everything but health, without which there is no happiness. #Quote by Thomas Jefferson
Honesty quotes by Meredith Monk
#176. That inner voice has both gentleness and clarity. So to get to authenticity, you really keep going down to the bone, to the honesty, and the inevitability of something. #Quote by Meredith Monk
Honesty quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#177. Singapore, Switzerland, Austria, and many of the European countries that we all admire today, don't have one tenth of the natural resources that African countries have. Yet, because of the principles of truth and honesty, they have been able to build some of the most civilized societies in the modern world. #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Honesty quotes by Ruben Papian

Honesty quotes by John Katzenbach
#182. Belief is an odd thing for a defense counsel, Tommy. It is not necessary to believe in your client to defend him.

Honesty quotes by Chetan Bhagat
#184. Societies that value excellence, innovation, entrepreneurship and integrity do well. If we want India to be rich, we have to value excellence and honesty first. This is where a reset, a re-prioritization of something very core to society is required. This core is our values. #Quote by Chetan Bhagat
Honesty quotes by Alfred Kinsey
#185. The history of medicine proves that in so far as man seeks to know himself and face his whole nature, he has become free from bewildered fear, despondent shame, or arrant hypocrisy. As long as sex is dealt with in the current confusion of ignorance and sophistication, denial and indulgence, suppression and stimulation, punishment and exploitation, secrecy and display, it will be associated with a duplicity and indecency that lead neither to intellectual honesty nor human dignity. #Quote by Alfred Kinsey
Honesty quotes by Orison Swett Marden

Honesty quotes by Amy A. Bartol
#187. I look away from his eyes. Since I've met you, Brennus, my life has not been mine, I say with more honesty than I like to admit to myself. Time with you is visceral ... white-knuckle moments that make me know that I'm alive. I think I have become addicted to the rush of fear and desire you create ... the uncertainty that I was once forced to endure has now become a need, like those pills that people keep in their medicine cabinets. #Quote by Amy A. Bartol
Honesty quotes by Robin Williams
#188. How much more can you give? Other than, literally, open-heart surgery onstage? Not much. But the only cure you have right now is the honesty of going, this is who you are. I know who I am. #Quote by Robin Williams
Honesty quotes by Charlie Munger

Honesty quotes by Rachel Hawthorne
#190. Why…why do you think you need to do that?" I asked.
Dad touched his glasses. "These work you know."
"Only for close up."
Shaking his head, he gave me an indulgent grin. "Dani, your mom and I were young once. We see the way you and Jason look at each other."
I glanced over at Mom. She was leaning against the counter, her arms crossed.
"I know I promised--" I began.
"Sweetie, no girl is going to keep that kind of promise when she starts falling for a guy. But you could have said something."
"Like what?"
"Like…'we have problem.'"
"In all honesty, we didn't realize we had a problem until last night," Jason said from the doorway. #Quote by Rachel Hawthorne
Honesty quotes by Anonymous
#191. Psalm PSALM - NOTE ON 37. This can be called a wisdom psalm because it reflects on themes normally dealt with in the Bible's Wisdom Literature, particularly in Proverbs. It addresses the issue of why godless people often prosper. It shows that it really is better to stay loyal to the Lord - a loyalty expressed in contentment, honesty, and generosity. In his own good time, the Lord will make a clear distinction between the godless and the faithful. Meanwhile, the faithful must wait patiently. #Quote by Anonymous

Honesty quotes by Louisa May Alcott
#194. You do me proud, Captain. But, dear, I want to say one thing and then I'm done; for you don't need much advice of mine after my good man has spoken. I read somewhere that every inch of rope in the British Navy has a strand of red in it, so wherever a bit of it is found it is known. That is the text of my little sermon to you. Virtue, which means honour, honesty, courage, and all that makes character, is the red thread that marks a good man wherever he is. Keep that always and everywhere, so that even if wrecked by misfortune, that sign shall still be found and recognized. Yours is a rough life, and your mates not all we could wish, but you can be a gentleman in the true sense of the word; and no matter what happens to your body, keep your soul clean, your heart true to those who love you, and do your duty to the end. #Quote by Louisa May Alcott
Honesty quotes by Socrates
#195. ...[Y]ou know very well the truth of what I [say]... I have incurred a great deal of bitter hostility; and this is what will bring about my destruction, if anything does... the slander and jealousy of a very large section of the people. They have been fatal to a great many other innocent men, and I suppose will continue to be so; there is no likelihood that they will stop at me. But perhaps someone will say 'Do you feel no compunction, Socrates, at having followed a line of action which puts you in danger of the death-penalty?' I might fairly reply to him 'You are mistaken, my friend, if you think that a man who is worth anything ought to spend his time weighing up the prospects of life and death. He has only one thing to consider in performing any action; that is, whether he is acting rightly or wrongly, like a good man or a bad one...['] The truth of the matter is this, gentlemen. Where a man has once taken up his stand, either because it seems best to him or in obedience to his orders, there I believe he is bound to remain and face the danger, taking no account of death or anything else before dishonour. #Quote by Socrates
Honesty quotes by Howard Cosell
#196. Stand for something. Don't quest for popularity at the expense of morality and ethics and honesty. #Quote by Howard Cosell
Honesty quotes by Craig Groeschel
#197. When I ask God to change my actions, that honesty about my own inconsistent behaviors forces me not to be so hard on other believers. Humble acknowledgment of the plank in my own eye gives me more patience with the specks in everyone else's (see Matthew 7:1-5). Instead of pointing the finger at others, let's allow God to examine us. #Quote by Craig Groeschel
