Lie to a Liar?

An ancient Arabian saying —

Lie to a liar, for lies are his currency; steal from a thief, it is easy; lay a trap for the cheat and catch him quickly; but beware an honest man!

Sakyamuni Buddha declared that one of the greatest gifts one human can offer another is honesty…a supreme gift to all other beings — to be truthful with them, that they know you will never try to cheat or trick them...even in the age of Mammon’s reign. As Warren Buffet proclaims, "Honesty is a very expensive gift, don't expect it from cheap people."

Non-violence is another cardinal virtue and the supreme gift that a human being can offer the world of beings…the gift that all beings  are entirely safe around you. You would not deliberately harm any of them.

May you have happiness and the causes thereof!
