Think before you speak; Sometimes, it's better just to keep your mouth shut !

Not so much lie as in learning to be tactful and understand that the other person has feelings. Sometimes truth hurts so be kind is all

You can look at it this way: Being blunt can sometimes mean being critical, a bit unnkind or abrupt. Being Honest is about telling the truth when it comes to serious issues. So if your friend is showing off her new outfit and tell her it makes her look like a hog, that is being blunt (and mean). If you accidentally break someone's favorite dish, and you're asked if you know how broke it, and say "i did" -- this is being honest.
