No legacy is so rich as honesty
- William Shakespeare
This picture was taken this summer when we were in Florida. There is something beautiful about being at the ocean and watching the sunset. It is so peaceful. Tonight at dinner we were all talking about peace, honesty and wisdom.
Today is my Dad's birthday. He is 49. He said he is hopefully getting wiser as he is getting older and something he wants us to know is it is never a good idea to lie. There is an old Yiddish proverb that says, A half truth is a whole lie. Sometimes it might seem like a lie is helping, but in the end it will catch up to you.
Honesty is the first chapter in the book of wisdom.
- Thomas Jefferson
That was a good message. Happy Birthday Dad.
