Mahatma Ghandi once said, “Truth never damages a cause that is just.” We believe that while a little white lie about your daughter’s not-so-perfect pitch or your mother-in-law’s new couch-pattern floral blouse may not do much harm, telling the truth is always the better road to take. Even after telling a lie, there is always the opportunity to come clean and make an attempt at redemption. Lance Armstrong, for example, is doing his best after being as truthful as he’s probably ever going to be, and we respect him just a bit more than we would have had he chosen to maintain a facade until the end.
Here are 25 reasons why the truth will set you free. Though, don’t hold us responsible for what happens after you tell your suegra that her shirt looks like old curtains.
