My View on Honesty
Honesty is a long-lasting virtue of people and is regarded as the most important quality. People give admiration to those who are honest, while hate those who often tell lies. However, some people say that in market economy, honesty tends to be less important. But in my point of view, honesty will never be out of date no matter how the situation changes.
Firstly, honesty is always the mainstream in our society and those people who are sincere are respected. On the contrary, the dishonest will be excluded by others. Secondly, no matter in the daily life or in business, people would like to build relationships with the honest. Honesty is the basis of true friendship. In business, those who make money at the cost of honesty will certainly pay the price in someday. Finally, honesty should become part of our personality that we should treat it as the most valuable fortune of ours. It may not bring you material benefit, but your spirit must be rich.
Here, I want to give you a good example. It's my father. My father was a farmer when I was young, and we lived in a villege. Someday a lucky star fell on him, because he got a chance to go to city to do business, and his business was to sell alcohol. My father is a kind, honest and generous person. So at that time,
everyone liked to do business with him. As time went by, his business became more and more prosperous ['pr?sp?r?s], and now, he is rather successful. He has set a good example to me, because I have witnessed his process of being successful. From the bottom of my heart, I know that it's his honesty that contributes to his career.
In short, honesty is an important quality that should deeply root in everyone's heart.
