Honesty Quotes

Honesty Quotes
Here’s some “honesty quotes” I’ve been saving for a rainy day:

1) No legacy is so rich as honesty. -William Shakespeare

2) Honesty towards yourself. Looking into your mirror, any time all the time will guide. -Jacob Gelt Dekker

3) Honesty is the first chapter of the book of wisdom. -Thomas Jefferson

4) To measure the man measure his heart. -Malcolm S. Forbes

5) You cannot do wrong without suffering wrong. -Ralph Waldo Emerson

6) Rather fail with honour than succeed by fraud. -Sophocles

7) Work joyfully and peacefully, knowing that right thoughts and right efforts will inevitably bring about right results. -James Allen

8 ) I contend that dishonesty will create a failure force that often manifests itself in other ways—ways not apparent to the outside observer. -Joseph Sugarman

9) Each time you are honest and conduct yourself with honesty, a success force will drive you toward greater success. Each time you lie, even with a little white lie, these are strong forces pushing you toward failure. -Joseph Sugarman

10) It is not fair to ask of others what you are unwilling to do yourself. -Ann Eleanor Roosevelt

-Shawn 🙂

    And when I became honest, I became whole, and reclaimed that part of me that had been lost to lies.

    I liked 4 and 6 the most, they all make good sense…a good read on a rainy day like today here in Ottawa.

    I love number 7. It’s interesting how we tell our kids to relax and work but we always do things in a hurry.
