It is a great importance to set a resolution, not to be shaken, never to tell an untruth. There is no vice so mean, so pitiful, so contemptible and he who permits himself to tell a lie once, finds it much easier to do it a second and third time, till at length it becomes habitual, he tells lies without attending to it, and truths without the world's believing him. This falsehood of the tongue leads to that of the heart, and in time depraves all its good dispositions.
I have found no greater satisfaction than achieving success through honest dealing and strict adherence to the view that, for you to gain, those you deal with should gain as well.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

i enjoy watching those vidoes make some more!
The honest will embrace constructive criticism whereas the dishonest will be offended and go to great lengths to discredit the source. They will in fact expend more time and energy discrediting their critics than addressing the problem.
