sunset and smokestacks

I'm about halfway through A Wild Sheep Chase by Haruki Murakami; I came across this passage last night:

"Speaking frankly and speaking the truth are two different things entirely. Honesty is to truth as prow is to stern. Honesty appears first and truth appears last. The interval between varies in direct proportion to the size of the ship. With anything of size, truth takes a long time in coming."
