Life is short, and truth works far and lives long: let us then speak the truth. -Arthur Schopenhauer
By speaking the truth you can never go wrong. And after you have left this short life, you will be remembered because of it.
The Virtue of Justice
What does it mean to live a just life? If right thoughts and right actions equal righteousness, can we be righteous? Our hope is that others treat us with justice. This of course is no guarantee, but it does not change our responsibilities. It is our responsibility to be honest in our deeds and in our words, and that we treat others with justice.
