The grand principles of virtue and honor, however they may be distorted by arbitrary codes, are the same the world over: and where these principles are concerned, the right or wrong of any action appears the same to the uncultivated as to the enlightened mind.
My responsibility to myself, my neighbors, my family and the human family is to try to tell the truth.
Toni Cade Bambara
You don't have to preach honesty to men with creative purpose. Let a human being throw the engines of his soul into the making of something, and the instinct of workmanship will take care of his honesty.
The grateful person, being still the most severe exacter of himself, not only confesses, but proclaims, his debts.
