This article is on Swami Vivekananda's quotes on Honesty. This article also includes Swami Vivekananda's quotes on dishonesty.
  • Acceptance, love, toleration for everything sincere and honest — but never for hypocrisy.[Source]
  • "An honest God's the noblest work of man", said one of your Western thinkers. God is as man is. No man can see God but through these human manifestations.[Source]
  • Be honest and say, "I see the ideal but I cannot yet approach it"; but do not pretend to give up when you do not. If you give up, stand fast. If a hundred fall in the fight, seize the flag and carry it on. God is true for all that, no matter who fails. Let him who falls hand on the flag to another to carry on; it can never fall.[Source]
  • . . . Have patience and be faithful unto death. Do not fight among yourselves. Be perfectly pure in money dealings. . . . We will do great things yet. . . . So long as you have faith and honesty and devotion, everything will prosper.[Source] 
  • . . . Honesty is the best policy, and a virtuous man must gain in the end. . . .[Source]
  • Mark you, let us all be honest. If we cannot follow the ideal, let us confess our weakness, but not degrade it; let not any try to pull it down.[Source]
  • Some social vigilance is needed. How are we to do that? A few men (old men, preferably) should take charge as the warders for the day. They will make circuits round the scene of the festival, and in case they find any man or woman showing impropriety of speech or conduct, they will at once expel them from the garden. But so long as they behave like good men and women, they are Bhaktas and are to be respected — be they men or women, honest citizens or unchaste.[Source]
  • To attain God, the first thing that you have to do is to give up this playing "hide-and-seek with your ideas", this dishonesty, this "theft within the chamber of thought".[Source]
