A lie can travel halfway around the world while the truth is still putting on its shoes.
I couldn't decide what to write about for my T post today. I thought about Travel and I thought about Truth, then I came upon the quote by Twain and was amused to find he combined the two into one pithy comment.
So, a few quick words about each.
TRUTH: In my H post for the Blogging A-Z Challenge, I related a story about honesty. I find honesty and truth to be tightly twined concepts. Telling the truth involves being honest, and being honest requires one to be truthful. My husband and I recently felt compelled to tell the truth to someone about one of those "elephant in room" situations. We paid a price for telling the truth and hurt was part of the fallout. He and I have no regrets about telling the truth, and despite the hurt, peace and relief also resulted. Moral of the story? Let truth prevail.
T is done, now it is time to move onto the letter U.
