another truth quote

Sometimes we tell the truth because we just can't help ourselves. Sometimes we tell the truth because the truth is all we have to give. And sometimes, we tell the truth because we owe the other person at least that much.

A to-become-beloved teacher, on the first night I attended her class told us that truth is good, but honesty is not always so. She believed that honesty can hurt too much, and so we must sometimes withhold the truth.

I trust most those whom I can rely on to tell me the truth about absolutely anything. I don't need fake plaudits for my new hairdo, my cooking or my fashion sense. I'd rather know the truth. Then I know I can trust you when you tell me something important.

Unfortunately, sometimes when I tell the truth, however I may try to soften a negative, I get in trouble for it often enough that I think I would be better off to be dishonest about some things!
