Love this quote. Not sure who came up with it, just something I saw on someone’s facebook page. It is so very true and something I have always thought since I was a kid.
“One lie is all it takes for someone to lose faith in you. The best thing you can do is be upfront, always be real, and always tell the truth.”
Then there is the classic, which again not sure who came up with it first but heard it on one of the Star Trek spinoffs.
“Always tell the truth, that way you never have to remember what you lied about in the first place.”
A phoenix is truth and only speaks such. Light, dark, or gray you can always trust in a phoenix no matter what.
