Honesty Quotes

Love and dignity cannot share the same abode.
Ovid
Ethical religion can be real only to those who are engaged in ceaseless efforts at moral improvement. By moving upward we acquire faith in an upward movement, without limit.
Felix Adler
This is the flag of the future, but it does not dishonor the past. (On his country's new Maple Leaf flag)
Lester Bowles Pearson
The most dangerous man, to any government, is the man who Is able to think things out for himself, without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos. Almost invariably he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane and intolerable, and so, if he is romantic, he tries to change it. And if he is not romantic personally, he is apt to spread discontent among those who are.
Henry Louis Mencken
There are people who think that everything one does with a serious face is sensible.
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg
Moral victories don't count.
Savielly Grigorievitch Tartakower
Reputation is what other people know about you. Honor is what you know about yourself.
Lois McMaster Bujold

Alice James
First the grub, then the morals.
Bertolt Brecht
Free from gross passion or of mirth or anger constant in spirit, not swerving with the blood, garnish'd and deck'd in modest compliment, not working with the eye without the ear, and but in purged judgement trusting neither Such and so finely bolted didst thou seem.
William Shakespeare
Of all tyrannies a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.
Clive Staples Lewis
Honesty rare as a man without self-pity, kinders as large and plain as a prairie wind.
Stephen Vincent Benet
If we want a free and peaceful world, if we want to make the deserts bloom and man grow to greater dignity as a human being -- we can do it.
Roosevelt, Eleanor
Life is a game in which the rules are constantly changing nothing spoils a game more than those who take it seriously. Adultery Phooey You should never subjugate yourself to another nor seek the subjugation of someone else to yourself. If you follow that Crispian principle you will be able to say 'Phooey,' too, instead of reaching for your gun when you fancy yourself betrayed.
Quentin Crisp
Marriage love, honor, and negotiate.
Joe Moore
If you can impress any man with an absorbing conviction of the supreme importance of some moral or religious doctrine if you can make him believe that those who reject that doctrine are doomed to eternal perdition if you then give that man power, and by means of his ignorance blind him to the ulterior consequences of his own act,-he will infallibly persecute those who deny his doctrine.
Henry Thomas Buckle
