Honesty is the best virtue?

Short talk: I'm gonna die soon!!! 2 tests and 2 external exams in a week!!! Taking a break to blog and read blogs for a while.

I was having an academic discussion with my friends yesterday in my campus. While I was making my way to go back home, I saw this - The naked truth is always better than the best dressed lie.

Concerning this, I argued shared my thought with a friend of mine before. I'm a good pretender and liar, and so I always feel that, to certain extent, telling a lie is good to both parties.

But what my friend said-do we lie just to protect the party we lie to, or do we lie to protect ourselves- is worth a while for us to contemplate. And when I saw that "naked TRUTH is better than best dressed LIE", my friend's words rang in my mind, until I decided to write a post about this.

Should we be so inflexible determined to be so honest?
