Be honest, anyway

On the way to the airport, I left my phone behind in a cab. By the time I could get through to the cab driver, he'd already picked up another fare, and was too far away to return. Without really expecting him to do so, I asked him to drop the phone off at my mother's place whenever he was next in the area. Not only did he return the phone within a couple of hours, he refused to accept a tip from my mother.

Why do we assume people are dishonest? People are intrinsically honest, if you trust them.
If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway.
For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.”
― Mother Teresa
