Text Illustrations

Signs do not create a reality; they merely expose it. For example, a sign on a highway may read "Chicago: 160 miles". If we changed the sign to read "60 miles" instead, it wouldn't change the fact that Chicago is really 160 miles away.

Truth doesn't change, no matter what you believe, what you say, how you act, or what you do to expose it differently. Similarly, character can't be faked--it can only be covered up, painted differently, or exposed for what it is. Real integrity only develops honestly.
