Honesty verses loyalty


Loyalty is being honest to a person;
Honesty is being loyal to a cause.
Loyalty is being faithful
And honesty, being virtuous.
Kumbakarna was loyal;
Vibhishna was honest.
The world is run by loyalty
Rather than by honesty.

[Kumbakarna and Vibhishna are yonger brothers of King Ravana in the Hindu epic Ramayana.]
