Sally and her husband Jack have both been driving for three years.
Jack has always driven very carefully.
He has never been in an accident.
Sally, however, has never been a good driver.
She has already gotten into 4 accidents this year.
Each time she has had an accident, she has claimed that it was not her fault.
Yesterday, Sally drove into a tree.
She blamed it on the tree, saying that she honked the horn, but the tree didn't get out of the way.
John has been trying to learn how to play the guitar.
He has been taking lessons for half a year.
However, he hasn't been study ing seriously.
He has only been going to his lessons every now and then.
Moreover, he seldom practices.
On the other hand, his cousin, Tim, has been playing the guitar for about three months.
He plays much better than John.
Tim isn't more talented than John, though.
He is just more determined.
if you are honest,people will trust you.
it is important for a person to have the reputation for being honest.
if a person is dishonest,no one will want to be his friend.
he will soon become an outcast.
on the other hand, an honest man wins the respect of others.
honesty is, indeed, the best policy.
