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.
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.
Chilon of Sparta
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.
Our lives improve only when we take chances- and the first and most difficult risk we can take is to be honest with ourselves.
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.

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.

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.
