King Fredrick II of Prussia visited a prison. He asked all the 30 men who were imprisoned the reason of their imprisonment.

29 men said that they were all innocent and wrongly imprisoned. Only one man admitted that he was imprisoned because he had committed some serious crimes. Then, then the king said to that one man that: “Because you are a criminal you cannot be among so many innocent people. You should be released at once.” The man was immediately released and sent home.

Point: In life, there is no virtue, moral or value which is greater than honesty. The mother of honesty is integrity (purity or moral uprightness).
