Treat those who are good with goodness, and also treat those who are not good with goodness. Thus goodness is attained. Be honest to those who are honest, and be also honest to those who are not honest. Thus honesty is attained.

  • -- Lao Tzu 老子



Men are as we have always known them, neither better nor worse from the hearts of rogues there springs a latent honesty, from the depths of honest men there emerges a brutish appetite - a thirst for extermination, a desire for blood.


Evil is committed without effort, naturally, fatally; goodness is always the product of some art.


The way my luck is running, if I was a politician I would be honest.
