[Manvotional: The Power of Truth](http://www.artofmanliness.com/2014/03/22/manvotional-the-power-of-truth/)
>Man is usually loyal to what he most desires. The man who lies to save a nickel, merely proclaims that he esteems a nickel more than he does his honor. He who sacrifices his ideals, truth and character, for mere money or position, is weighing his conscience in one pan of a scale against a bag of gold in the other. He is loyal to what he finds the heavier, that which he desires the more the money. But this is not truth. Truth is the heart’s loyalty to abstract right, made manifest in concrete instances.
