Quote: Don’t Make is Worse

If you do something you know is wrong, such as going where you don’t belong. Don’t make it worse by telling lies; Say you’re sorry and apologize.

-Madeline
Truth
Our French friend is correct. As with all mistakes and accidents, the quicker it is acknowledged, owned and apologized for the better. Eventually the truth comes out and a lie is almost always more regrettable than the original mistake or accident.
