    I wish truth had a tongue, then all of the issues going on in the world meanwhile would have disappeared for good. Honesty, Loyalty, Truthfulness, Faithfulness is all we need.

    Truth saturates emotions in the most extreme of both good and bad. Better to risk the bad in the lucky chance you get the good.
