  • An honest person is looking for truth; reads, learns and observes, rather than trying to impose their own preconceptions on events.

  • Truth leads to seeking achievement rather than accolades; growth rather than fame. Wisdom rather than greed.
  • Which is not to say that wealth, fame, applause are bad. Rather that the honest person is grounded in deeper things, and not dependent on the shallow, ephemeral, ever shifting conditions of life.
