How to start this essay?

QUESTION
How to start this essay?
The essay question is: is it essential to always tell the truth or are there circumstances in which it is better to lie.

I believe it is essential to always tell the truth..So what;s an interesting way to start the essay? Thanks!:)

ANSWER
Start off general about the topic of lying vs. telling the truth and then go to your thesis statement. Your thesis statement should provide an arguement (I believe it is essential to tell the truth) and have three supporting reasons behind it. For example lets say you think it is essential to tell the truth because 1. its the right thing to do, 2. it earns you respect, and 3. it keeps you out of trouble. your thesis statement would be: (I believe it is essential to tell the truth because its the right thing to do, it earns you respece, and it can keep you out of trouble. You will expan on these three ideas later in the body paragraphs, but this is how your intro. should work.
