The sky is not less blue because the blind man does not see it. In the kingdom of the blind, the one-eyed man is king..

If someone says that you are honest, 
it means that you are truthful, sincere, and morally upright. 

To boil it down to the simplest terms, being honest means that you are truthful – you tell the truth. 

Inevitably, whenever this discussion comes up, there are those who love to debate this issue and argue that truth is relative and that everyone has their own truth. 
While it may be true that everyone sees the truth from their own point of view, that is not proof that all truth is relative.

There is a Danish proverb which states,

 “The sky is not less blue because the blind man does not see it.” 

What this proverb means is that the truth do not change simply because someone sees it a certain way from his or her own point of view. 

Carl Frederick wrote, 
“The truth simply is that’s all. It does not need reasons: it does not have to be right: it’s just the truth. Period.”


Perception is key, as is justification which one is true to the other depends on the situation and what one knows, or perceives even through an opinion, which also is just what it is , as is mine.
