  • Truth Vs Lie Essay
    362 words
    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 que...

Hughes, however, uses more concrete diction, with words such as raisin, feste...
