The Dichotomy between Honesty & Truth

"Three blind men stand around an elephant, and converse with one another as they attempt to describe what they've discovered. The first places his hands on the elephant's leg, and declares it to be a tree. The second is knocked-over by its tusks, and shouts that it is a tremendous and angry bull. The third grasps hold of its trunk, and responds that it is a snake.

Not a one among them lied; but though they all spoke Honestly, not a one spoke the Truth, for they could not grasp it - and there lies the dichotomy between the Virtue of intent, and the State of wisdom and true knowledge."
