You want the truth?
Who can forget the delivery of the line "You want the truth? You can't handle the truth!".
This is something that has stuck with me ever since seeing the movie. It is an iconic line, and the way it is delivered is with such venom and such disdain. Jack Nicholson has an air about him that intimidates.
The thing is, the truth only intimidates those who are trying to hide from it. Ever heard the saying "The truth will out"? It's because a lie, no matter how small, will falter. Some people lie and think nobody can see throw it, but in reality they may as well carry a banner stating they are full of crap.
I believe in the truth. Why? Well firstly I don't like liars. I don't lie, I don't see the point. Lying and believing it is delusional. By telling the truth, no matter how difficult it may be for it to be heard will always carry respect. Respect is what is important. You can't ever assume it, you should always earn it. Telling the truth will earn you more respect than you could ever imagine.
The truth is the truth - even if nobody believes it.
A lie is a lie - even if everyone believes it.
