Honest Friend Quotes

Well, said Staines, frowning slightly, thats very difficult to say—which to value higher. Honesty or loyalty. From a certain point of view one might say that honesty is a kind of loyalty—loyalty to the truth ... though one would hardly call loyalty a kind of honesty! I suppose that when it came down to it—if I had to choose between being dishonest but loyal, or being disloyal but honest—Id rather stand by my men, or by my country, or by my family, than by truth. So I suppose Id say loyalty ... I myself. But in others ... in the case of others, I feel quite differently. Id much prefer an honest friend to a friend who was merely loyal to me; and Id much rather be loyal to an honest friend than to a sycophant. Lets say that my answer is conditional; in myself, I value loyalty; on others, honesty
— Eleanor Catton —

Having an honest friend-one before whom you can dump all your heart's pockets and still feel that you are worth something-is a form of wealth that will buy you nothing but will give you everything. And mysteriously and rightly, to find such a friend, we must be such a friend.

— Mark Nepo

The noblest part of a friend is an honest boldness in the notifying of errors. He that tells me of a fault, aiming at my good, I must think him wise and faithful
wise in spying that which I see not; faithful in a plain admonishment, not tainted with flattery.

— Owen Feltham
