Sad we don't trust anyone these days. Remember when it was just sleazy car salesman? Yes, they've now become the exception.
Truth is the breath of life to human society. It is the food of the immortal spirit. Yet a single word of it may kill a man as suddenly as a drop of prussic acid.
So remember, as spoken from this guy:
“I'd rather be hated for who I am, rather than loved for who I am not."
In other words, tell the truth, or someone else will. Diamonds cut diamonds.
