Honesty Quotations

Goodness is about character - integrity, honesty, kindness, generosity, moral courage, and the like. More than anything else, it is about how we treat other people.
Dennis Prager

It has always seemed strange to me... the things we admire in men, kindness and generosity, openness, honesty, understanding and feeling, are the concomitants of failure in our system. And those traits we detest, sharpness, greed, acquisitiveness, meanness, egotism and self-interest, are the traits of success. And while men admire the quality of the first they love the produce of the second.
John Steinbeck

The foundation stones for a balanced success are honesty, character, integrity, faith, love and loyalty.
Zig Ziglar

Honesty is the first chapter in the book of wisdom.
Thomas Jefferson

The secret of life is honesty and fair dealing. If you can fake that, you've got it made.
Groucho Marx
