A lie is still a lie no matter what color it is. It is better to be sincere than be tricky.
In the children’s story “The Emperor’s New Clothes,” the characters, including the Emperor, have been fooled by their own liking when they failed to acknowledge that the Emperor is naked and not wearing his new wardrobe, which according to the tailors (who are actually thieves) can be only seen by the wise ones, and so as not to look stupid, they have been pretending that they are seeing the new clothes until one innocent child shouts that the Emperor is not wearing anything. It is only then when they realize that they have been cheated and have acted so stupid for not admitting that the Emperor is undressed.

Trust is such a strong word. It encompasses all kinds of relationships in the world for a healthy and strong relationship is built on trust.
