  • I LOVE this. Did Warren Buffet really say this? This is something that is very deep. Honesty is something that is under-rated and seems to be VERY hard to come by in this day and age. People seem like they love to lie in this day and age, they lie about stuff that they don’t even need to lie about.

  • This should not be the case. It is a social tragedy that honesty is so rare these days. The lack of honesty is destroying relationships, homes, lives, jobs, entire companies across the country, perhaps across the world. Honesty should be expected from every person, every time, under every circumstance. If you feel you can not answer honestly, decline to answer the question to protect your privacy, don’t lie.

  • Its hard to find honest people these days. When I say cheap I don’t mean the person is a cheap buyer but their cheap in the way they run their life and how they lie. Honesty is expensive and hardly anyone is willing to follow it anymore.

  • I’ve met a lot of cheap people in my life, and it’s not that they lie a lot but rather they have created their own truths and are deluded by them. It’s best to stay clear of these people because they will drag you down eventually. Being honest is only expensive when you’re not used to being honest. What honesty really is, is genuine.

  • That’s so true. I also agree with the fact that we shouldn’t expect it from cheap people who lie and do not have that gift. It’s only people who are genuine and kind hearted who I would say are totally honest, we should look after them, they have a rare gift.
