“Honesty is a very expensive gift. Don’t expect it from cheap people”

"Honesty is a very expensive gift. Don’t expect it from cheap people” is a quotation that has been printed on GIFs. “Honesty is a expensive gift. Don’t expect that gift from cheap people” was cited on Twitter on May 25, 2010. The author is unknown.

American investor Warren Buffett is often credited for coining the saying. However, Buffett was first credited with the saying in August 2011—over a year after the first citations.
