“Honesty is the first chapter in the book of wisdom” — Thomas Jefferson
That is one of my all time favorite quotes!
Why is it so hard for people to be honest sometimes? I mean if you have to lie – why not just avoid the situation to begin with??
The statement “I lied to protect XXX” doesn’t bode well with me either… I believe that everything, EVERY THING – always comes out in the end anyway!!
Another quote – “If you don’t lie, then you don’t have to remember what you said” — Mark Twain (Thanks Steve)
