Good People give when they does not have to, because it seems fair.

One who makes a promise, intending to keep, but does not when it is inconvenient, is dishonorable.

One who makes a promise, not intending to keep it, lacks principles.

One who tells a lie, knowing the Recipient knows it is a lie (and knowing the Recipient knows One knows it is a lie), is the lowest.
