“I wish to speak to you frankly about being honest. Honesty is a moral compass to guide us in our lives. You… are under great pressure to learn… However, the tremendous push to excel in secular learning sometimes tempts people to compromise that which is more important—their honesty and integrity.

“In reality, we are only in competition with ourselves. Others can challenge and motivate us, but we must reach down deep into our souls and call forth our God-given intelligence and capabilities. We cannot do this when we depend on the efforts of someone else.” – Honesty—a Moral Compass by James E. Faust
