Truth or beauty: Which has a greater impact on society?

Truth has more impact on society than beauty because telling the truth makes people thoughtful and kind. Some people may look good but they are no generous. Honesty is more important than looking good.

Truth is important because it’s honesty. Truth is being a good friend and a good person. It is always important to be honest because then people will trust you.
The sunset it beautiful to me because it’s bright and colorful. I find beauty in natural things. Things that are beautiful make me peaceful. Things that are beautiful make me feel cozy. Things that are beautiful make me think about what is coming next.
