Honesty is the best policy

Honesty is the best policy.

One fine day, while I was on my way to school, I found a wallet. It was lying outside the lift.

Opening the wallet, I found two hundred dollars and some coins inside. There were some pieces of paper but no identity card. I was tempted to keep the money, but I remembered what my teacher had taught us. She said, “It is wrong to take things which do not belong to us. We should have the honesty.” I scolded myself for harboring such dishonest thoughts. Then, instead of going to school, I went to report what I had found to the neighborhood police.

The policeman was very kind and listened to me patiently. As I was about to finish my story, I saw my neighbor, Mr. Song, walk into the police-station. He looked surprised to see me. After much explanation, we discovered that the wallet belonged to Mr. Song. What a coincidence!

My neighbor thanked me over and over again. The policeman praised me for my honesty and for being an honest boy in the situation. He also called up my school to inform my principal of the incident. I am glad that I had not kept the wallet. Indeed, honesty is the best policy.

Article 5:
Honesty is the best policy
I agree with the statement honesty is the best policy. Everyone, to succeed in his or her life, should follow the policy. Though we can make money by improper ways, it would not give us good status in society. I believe that honesty is the best policy for both personal life and business life.
