Truth vs. Lie Essay


I agree with the statement "honesty is the best policy". People will be able to trust
people who are honest, liars will have rumors spread around about them, and it's just
plain easier to tell the truth. Nobody likes people who lie all the time and won't know
whether to trust them or not. People get annoyed by people who lie a lot.

Being honest and having a reputation of never lying makes people trust them more. People
are more likely to come up to a person who tells the truth and ask them a question. They
are more likely to get the right answer and not a lie. People who tell the truth are more
respected and aren't looked down at for being a liar. People can be trusted more when they
constantly tell the truth. When they ask if they can go out and do something, they are
more likely to be able to because others trust them and they don't have to worry.

Liars have rumors spread around about how they lie all the time. Nobody wants to talk to
them because they won't know if they are lying to them or not. They aren't trusted as much
as people who don't lie. Liars never get very far in life and always have a reputation of
lying. It's much better to tell the truth and have friends who trust them, rather than
lying and having rumors spread around making no one like them.

It's actually easier to just tell the truth. There are many reasons for this. One reason
is, people don't have to think of lame excuses, making it much faster. Another reason is,

    Aesthetics 1.To try to explain how and why aesthetics is understood, as a philosophical endeavor should first start with what I think and feel through my learning experiences what is art.

When these traits come together you are in presence of a work of art in my mind and the definition of aesthetics in art. I feel that the

  • Sad Outlook of Society
    Sad Outlook of Society Lately I have noticed that society thinks the people should act and look like something that most people aren’t. Appearance is a main issue of society today. People look more at looks of one person more than their personality or abilities. Growing old is frowned upon and more people try to make them themselves look younger by having surgery, taking pills, or using creams. Most people don’t really care about what is on the inside because they are more concerned with other s

  • Fatalism in Tess
    Fatalism in Tess If written today, Tess of the d\'urbervilles by Thomas Hardy may have been called Just Call Me Job or Tess: Victim of Fate. Throughout this often bleak novel, the reader is forced by Tess\'s circumstance to sympathize with the heroine (for lack of a better term) as life deals her blow after horrifying blow. One of the reasons that the reader is able to do so may be the fatalistic approach Hardy has taken with the life of the main character. Hardy writes Tess as a victim of Fate.

In John Milton\'s epic poem Paradise Lost , the issue of who is to blame for the fall of man is one that for the most part can be interpreted from a close reading of book IX. Based on the text, Eve played a larger role in the decision to eat the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, and Adam\'s role was more passive in that he simply followed the wishes of Eve.
