Dishonesty Quotations

The more people rationalize cheating, the more it becomes a culture of dishonesty. And that can become a vicious, downward cycle. Because suddenly, if everyone else is cheating, you feel a need to cheat, too.
Stephen Covey

The greatest truth is honesty, and the greatest falsehood is dishonesty.
Abu Bakr

Dishonesty is all about the small acts we can take and then think, 'No, this not real cheating.' So if you think that the main mechanism is rationalization, then what you come up with, and that's what we find, is that we're basically trying to balance feeling good about ourselves.
Dan Ariely

Time will inevitably uncover dishonesty and lies; history has no place for them.
Norodom Sihanouk

I detest politics, to be honest with you. It's a cesspool. And I don't think I would fare well in that cesspool because I don't believe in political correctness and I certainly don't believe in dishonesty.
Benjamin Carson
