Virtue of the Month
LIFE IS SWEET when we are HONEST!
“I try to be honest in every way, from the things that I do to the things that I say! When I’m honest with others, it’s easy to see, they tend to be friendly and honest with me.” P.K. Hallinan
“Honesty is the best policy—but not the cheapest. If you tell the truth, you don’t have to remember anything.” Mark Twain
“Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in TRUTH.
