"Wenn du jemandem Freundschaft gibst der Liebe will, ist es so als w├╝rdest du jemandem Brot geben obwohl er am verdursten ist."



Unfortunately, too often people find themselves falling into the habit of telling little white lies and tall tales, in an effort to get ahead or to avoid getting into trouble. But we have to remind ourselves that telling the truth is a powerful virtue that we might sometimes find ourselves bypassing. By consciously making an effort to be truthful , we should remember that telling the truth really is the best policy..always.

If it is not right do not do it; if it is not true do not say it.
-- Marcus Aurelius

Where is there dignity unless there is honesty?
-- Cicero

Sorry I ever expected more of you. Sorry I thought you were better than that. Sorry I thought you could be so much more. Sorry for believing in you.

Have you ever wondered which hurts the most: saying something and wishing you had not, or saying nothing, and wishing you had?

There comes a point in your life when you realize who really matters, who never did, and who always will.

" Sooner or later we all discover that the important moments in life are not the advertised ones, not the birthdays, the graduations, the weddings, not the great goals achieved. The real milestones are less prepossessing. They come to the door of memory unannounced, stray dogs that amble in, sniff around a bit, and simply never leave. Our lives are measured by these. "
