“If you can’t be good, be honest.”
That’s the phrase that I heard — for it was different than the rest.
The sentiment portrayed is, I would say, excellent in more than one way — but how many people are willing to follow such a principle ? And if they are willing, then how long will it last ?
I would hope that the two are not mutually exclusive — good people can be true, true people can be good (saying “true people” is a certain way of reminding me of a loyalist quote, “Ser Willem is a good man and true.” — while still portraying such dramatic an instance that it brings about… memories? Maybe…).
I wanted to say more, but my mind goes round in circles so I’ve lost the original ideas I might have wanted to write down.
When can we compromise honesty ? Who (or what) would be worth it ?
Unfortunately, I am afraid… that hypocrisy is much too prevalent for most to be honest…
So the previous questions realign : How do we regain honesty ?
