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, people who tell the truth won't get in as much trouble when someone finds out that they lied to them. The last reason why telling the truth is better is, people will trust and respect them more. I agree with the statement 'honesty is the best policy'. Everyone that reads this should also agree with me. The points I made are very good examples of why people should tell the truth and not lie. People get more respect, trust and more liked than liars..
