Our lives improve only when we take chances- and the first and most difficult risk we can take is to be honest with ourselves.
Honesty is more than not lying. It is truth telling, truth speaking, truth living, and truth loving.
James E. Faust
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.
If I have been of service, if I have glimpsed more of the nature and essence of ultimate good, if I am inspired to reach wider horizons of thought and action, if I am at peace with myself, it has been a successful day.
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 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.

this is very truthful
zion gabourel, caye caulker
I would add that there are two types of people in the world; not good and evil as you might imagine, but rather those that love truth.......and those that do not. Both are capable of good and evil but those that love truth prevail because they build their estates upon rock rather than sand.
Dennis Dinzeo, Las Vegas, Nevada
Love of Truth is the prime value from which all the others issue. Commit to truth and all good things will follow.
