Honesty is a very expensive gift. Don't expect it from cheap people. - Warren Buffett

Honesty is a very expensive gift and you cannot expect anyone and everyone to be honest. It is important to understand that in today’s world full of hypocrites, it is really difficult to find one who is honest enough.

Mostly, you tend to get people who are either too complex or tend to lie all the time just for their own selfish benefits. You need to understand the fact that you cannot expect everyone to be honest with you.

It is essential to realize that at times, you will have to accept the reality and know that you cannot trust all. At times, you need to understand that you could be an honest person, but you cannot expect everyone to be equally honest to you.

Honesty is extremely expensive and not everyone is honest enough! Hence, it is absolutely your call to decide if you are going to trust someone or not. You need to have your understanding about the same.


You should be able to evaluate the people who are genuine and the ones who are not, and accordingly, you should expect them to behave with you.

You must know that honesty is not everyone’s cup of tea. You cannot wish it from all. You need to know the fact that honesty is extremely precious and most importantly, not everyone in today’s generation is worth doing it.

You will definitely find a set of people around you who would be loyal and honest to you, but on the other hand, you will come across a bunch of people who are not loyal at all.

However, you should not get disappointed by that, but should rather understand that the reality is such that you cannot wish to have it from the cheap people.
