Well sometimes being honest may get you in trouble and being dishonest might get you out so I’m sorry if I HAD to pick one I’d say dishonest and rich.

One must not forget that honesty is an essential quality in a human nonetheless it is not prevalent nowadays.

Remember also theres also the aspect of money perishing as well. Money comes and money goes.

Neither, honest and rich

Honest can also create all sorts of problems though - some times it is better to tell small lies, not to hurt people.

Bad habits die hard as they say! So once you have got into the habit of lying you will remain in it for some time. You cant just brush it off just because you have your ultimatum.

Well once I'm rich I could just stop being dishonest right? Also it depends on who you're being dishonest to, if it's coworkers and clients or family and friends etc

Do you mean white lies? If so they would start off small and keep increasing until theres no way out.
