As the proverb goes, honesty is the best policy. If you want to be trusted and respected by your friends, you must be honest. A liar is always looked down upon and avoided by the people around him. Definitely, all trades and professions also realize the importance of honesty. For instance, a businessman’s honesty lies in whether he plays fair in all of his dealings. Honesty in a doctor is his bounden duty to put humanitarianism above everything else. As far as a college student is concerned, honesty means seeking as much truth from his moral development as from his academic success. By social standards of today, an honesty-to-goodness graduate is of more value to society than the one who is long on brains but short on morality.
