To honour honesty and its importance in relationships, National Honesty Day is celebrated every year. Here are 20 inspiring quotes to share with loved ones.

Honesty is considered the best policy yet practicing it in every circumstance may not appear pragmatic to many. It requires a certain amount of courage and fearlessness when it comes to be honest and truthful to yourself and the world. The easiest and fastest way of earning trust is to be honest to people and stand by your set of values. To honour honesty and its importance in relationships, National Honesty Day is celebrated every year in the US on April 30. The day was established in the early 1990s by M. Hirsh Goldberg, author of The Book of Lies. Its aim is to promote honesty and straightforward communication in politics, relationships, consumer relations and historical education. Goldberg chose the last day of April to be celebrated as National Honesty Day because the month starts with April Fools' Day, a holiday that celebrates pranks and jokes which are not rooted in truth.
