Honesty is a Process

Only God can fully know what absolute honesty is. Therefore, each of us has to conceive what this great ideal may be -- to the best of our ability. Fallible as we all are, and will be in this life, it would be presumption to suppose we could ever really achieve absolute honesty. The best we can do is to strive for a better quality of honesty.

c. 1967 AAWS, As Bill Sees It, p. 172
