  1. honesty

    Truth is primarily and verity is always a quality of thought or speech, especially of speech, as in exact conformity to fact. Veracity is properly a quality of a person, the habit of speaking and the disposition to speak the truth; a habitual liar may on some occasions speak the truth, but that does not constitute him a man of veracity; on the other hand, a person of undoubted veracity may state (through ignorance or misinformation) what is not the truth. Truthfulness is a quality that may inhere either in a person or in his statements or beliefs. Candor, frankness, honesty, and ingenuousness are allied with veracity, and verity with truth, while truthfulness may accord with either. Truth in a secondary sense may be applied to intellectual action or moral character, in the former case becoming a close synonym of veracity; as, I know him to be a man of truth.

How to use honesty in a sentence?

  1. Tom Holland:

    Maybe in the future, but in all honesty I'm just too busy right now. I don't have the time, i've got an' Uncharted' press tour to do, and then I start shooting in early March for this TV show [ Apple TV +'s' The Crowded Room' ] which is going to take up a lot of my time and is definitely the hardest role I've ever taken on. So maybe one day in the future. But no, not right now. Honestly, I just don't have the time. And you know I would love to do that — I love that kind of thing, I love being put under pressure and doing things that I feel uncomfortable doing. So I'm interested in it, but I just don't have the time.

  2. Luther Standing Bear:

    Civilization has been thrust upon me... and it has not added one whit to my love for truth, honesty, and generosity.

  3. Mother Teresa:

    Honesty and transparency make you vulnerable. Be honest and transparent anyway.

  4. Bernie Sanders:

    The man is out there like an open book, i want to tell you what I like about him: His honesty, his integrity.

  5. William Shakespeare, "Timon of Athens", Act 3 scene 1:
