Frank Lloyd Wright
We have to stand up for what we believe in, even when we might not be popular for it. Honesty starts with being ourselves, authentic and true to who we are and what we believe in, and that may not always be popular, but it will always let you follow your dreams and your heart.
Each day offers us the gift of being a special occasion if we can simply learn that as well as giving, it is blessed to receive with grace and a grateful heart.
Sarah Ban Breathnach
To be honest, to be kind - to earn a little and to spend a little less, to make upon the whole a family happier for his presence, to renounce when that shall be necessary and not be embittered, to keep a few friends, but these without capitulation — above all, on the same grim condition, to keep friends with himself — here is a task for all that a man has of fortitude and delicacy.
Robert Louis Stevenson
The grateful person, being still the most severe exacter of himself, not only confesses, but proclaims, his debts.
We all need to know what it means to be honest. Honesty is more than not lying. It is truth telling, truth speaking, truth living, and truth loving.

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.
