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

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

Honesty and loyalty are key. If two people can be honest with each other about everything, that's probably the biggest key to success.
Taylor Lautner

No legacy is so rich as honesty.
William Shakespeare
