Honesty Quotes

Honesty quotes: Honesty means telling the truth even if the reality is unpalatable and unsavory.  Making someone cry by uttering truth is a lot better than concealing the reality or telling a lie in order to make the listener happy temporarily. Honesty means not only speaking truth; it is also not to steal, cheat, or deceive in anyway. Being honest is important for genuine relationships. Being honest isn’t always easy; otherwise we'd all do it all the time.

Sigmund Freud said

“Being entirely honest with oneself is a good exercise.”

We list herewith certain best quotes for being honest:
