"Choosing to be honest is the first step in the process of love. There is no practitioner of love who deceives."
– bell hooks
After reading this quote, I sat for a minute and actually tried to think of ways this isn't true. Doesn't a person sometimes have to deceive the people they love for good reasons? I truly have no idea why my brain went there first. It's not like I am in the habit of running around, lying to the people I love. (Unless, of course, we are planning a surprise party. Then I will lie like crazy. But I like to say that's a lie even Jesus would tell.)
