An honest man is respected by all parties.
      - William Hazlitt (1)

Who is the honest man?
  He that doth still and strongly good pursue
    To God, his neighbor, and himself most true:
      Whom neither force nor fawning can
        Unpin, or wrench from giving all their due.
      - George Herbert

When men cease to be faithful to their God, he who expects to find them so to each other will be much disappointed.
      - Thomas Hartwell Horne

When then cease to be faithful to their God, he who expects to find them so to each other will be much disappointed.
      - Thomas Hartwell Horne

An honest God is the noblest work of man.
      - Robert Green Ingersoll

Every honest man will suppose honest acts to flow from honest principles, and the rogues may rail without intermission.
      - Thomas Jefferson

He that departs with his own honesty
  For vulgar praise, doth it too dearly buy.
      - Ben Jonson, Epigram II

An entirely honest man, in the severe sense of the word, exists no more than an entirely dishonest knave; the best and the worst are only approximations to those qualities. Who are those that never contradict themselves? yet honesty never contradicts itself. Who are they that always contradict themselves? yet knavery is mere self-contradiction. Thus the knowledge of man determines not the things themselves, but their proportions, the quantum of congruities and incongruities.
      - Johann Kaspar Lavater (John Caspar Lavater)

He who freely praises what he means to purchase, and he who enumerates the faults of what he means to sell, may set up a partnership with honesty.
      - Johann Kaspar Lavater (John Caspar Lavater)

If all mankind were suddenly to practice honesty, many thousands of people would be sure to starve.
      - Georg Christoph Lichtenberg

I have always wanted to deal with everyone I meet candidly and honestly. If I have made any assertion not warranted by facts, and it is pointed out to me, I will withdraw it cheerfully.
      - Abraham Lincoln

The measure of life is not length, but honestie.
      - John Lyly (Lylie or Lyllie),
        Euphues--The Anatomy of Wit--Letters of Euphues--Euphues and Eubulus

Friends, if we be honest with ourselves, we shall be honest with each other.
      - George MacDonald, The Marquis of Lossie
         (ch. LXXI)

Put it out of the power of truth to give you an ill character; and if anybody reports you not to be an honest man, let your practice give him the lie; and to make all sure, you should resolve to live no longer than you can live honestly; for it is better to be nothing than a knave.
      - Marcus Aurelius (Marcus Aurelius Antoninus)

An honest man is always a child.
  [Lat., Semper bonus homo tiro est.]
      - Martial (Marcus Valerius Martialis),
        Epigrams (XII, 51, 2)

The man who pauses in his honesty wants little of a villain.
      - Henry Martyn

I am one of the few men honest enough to say they do not understand women.
      - Robert Gordon Menzies

Lands mortgaged may return, and more esteem'd,
  But honesty once pawn'd, is ne'er redeem'd.
      - Thomas Middleton

I'd rater know a square guy than own a square mile.
      - Wilson Mizner

All other knowledge is hurtful to him who has not honesty and good-nature.
      - Michel Eyquem de Montaigne

Honesty needs no pains to set itself off.
      - Edward Moore

The badge of honesty is simplicity.
      - Novalis (pseudonym of Frederich Leopold von Hardenberg)

Honesty needs no disguise nor ornament; be plain.
      - Thomas Otway

It is necessary in this life,--at first honesty; then usefulness, which follows nearly always, for they cannot be separated.
      - Domenico Palmieri

Money dishonestly acquired is never worth its cost, while a good conscience never costs as much as it is worth.
      - Jean-Antoine Petit-Senn
