Do you believe honesty is the best policy?

So many people these days find it easier to fib so is honesty still the best policy in most cases? I want to believe it still is.

I believe in honesty. I don't think any lie will ever do anything but hurt you in the end, even white lies. Every single time I've lied in my life, it's come back to haunt me in the end. I believe that in every situation, any time, to anyone, you should tell the truth. I can't say that I always do, because sometimes I still take the easy way out and tell what I think will be a white lie. But it always gets me back.

I do believe in honesty, i think dishonesty can make a little benefit but after that we have to pay for that. So its better to be honesty so that people can rely on us otherwise you very well know what is the image of a dishonest person in society. Happy mylotting!

yes, honesty is the best policy. when we give a false statement we try to hide a fact from someone but we dont realise that by being untrue to someone we are being untrue to ourselves to. moreover, truth has to power to show itself. if nt today it would come to light tomorrow. so it is better to reveal the truth today because when it comes out tomorrow the punishment would be greater than today. finally if you hide facts about somthing, then you would carry a guilt in yuor heart. so it better to be honest rather than a dishonest person.
