“Seven Deadly Sins:
Wealth without work
Pleasure without conscience
Science without humanity
Knowledge without character
Politics without principle
Commerce without morality
Worship without sacrifice.”
― Mahatma Gandhi

Winners never quit.
Quitters never win.
If you quit, you can't win.
And if you win, it's because you didn't quit.
Because quitters never win.

Honesty's the best policy,
and the best policy is honesty.
You're good if you tell the truth.
So tell the truth to be good.
Honesty is the best policy.

Liar Liar pants on fire.
Pants on fire you're a liar.
Lying is bad.
If you're bad, you lie.
If you are good you avoid lying.

But what if the truth is bad?
What if carrying on with the truth could hurt?
Do you quit and loose?
Or do you tell a lie and win?

If you lie, you're bad.
If you quit, you loose.
And honesty brings pain.
So which one is really the best policy?
