… let me give you the advice of an old and world-weary customer — Myself. This thing of demanding honesty of people is in the upper reaches of extreme Innocence…When you ask [someone] to be honest with you, you are asking him to act like God, whom he is not … and it doesn’t make him show up too well, of course. Never, above all things, ask your family to be honest with you. This is putting a strain on the human frame it can’t bear. [A person’s] honesty is only honesty, not truth, and it can’t be of much value to you intellectually or otherwise. To love people you have to ignore a good deal of what they say while they are being honest, because you are not living in the Garden of Eden any longer. The last thing I find I want of my kinfolks is their honesty. Oeeewarrrrhggghhh. — Flannery O’Connor, Letter
