In my crimes
I thought I’d left you behind
and then you came back here
and confessed your own.

I’ll never know
if was a betrayal
or a confirmation
of our faith in each other;
it’s never been the same since then
but among a sea of regrets
we’ll always have that moment
of near perfect
honesty.

Quotes from poems on honesty

But I am tired to be an honesty rascal;
And, since the humor comes for honesty,
I must even do it, rascally. It’s certain,
There are some winds, that never blow aright.

– Henry Montague Grover

What can I hope in courts? Or how succeed?
Tigers and wolves shal in the ocean breed,
The whale and dophin fatten on the mead;
And every element exchange its kind,
Ere thriving honesty in courts we find.

– Samuel Johnson

Every man has his fault, and honesty is his.
– William Shakespeare

Though I am not naturally honest, I am so sometimes by chance.
– William Shakespeare

In thought, and in his doings true,
Who gives to every man his due,
And acts with honesty to all,
The old and young, the great and small;
I often sought, but seldom found,
A man in all his dealings sound;
Not e’en among the very best
Would all their actions stand the test.

S. Moore

The practice of utter sincerity towards other men would avail to no good end, if they were incapable of practising it towards their own minds. In fact, truth cannot be communicated until it is perceived.
–Percy Bysshe Shelley
