Truth quotes
Truth
Working is praying, said one of the holiest of men. And he spoke truth; if a man will but do his work from a sense of duty, which is for the sake of God.

- Sermons.
Those who believe in their truth -- the only ones whose imprint is retained by the memory of men -- leave the earth behind them strewn with corpses. Religions number in their ledgers more murders than the bloodiest tyrannies account for, and those whom humanity has called divine far surpass the most conscientious murderers in their thirst for slaughter.

- Cioran, E. M.
A few observation and much reasoning lead to error; many observations and a little reasoning to truth.

- Carrel, Alexis
Where the flag of truth waves unfurled, there you will find superstition waiting in ambush.

- Platen
She say, Celie, tell the truth, have you ever found God in church? I never did. I just found a bunch of folks hoping for him to show. Any God I ever felt in church I brought in with me. And I think all the other folks did too. They come to church to share God, not find God.

- Walker, Alice
Truth is generally the best vindication against slander.

- Abraham Lincoln
Anyone who clings to the historically untrue -- and thoroughly immoral -- doctrine that `violence never settles anything'I would advise to conjure up the ghosts of Napoleon Bonaparte and of the Duke of Wellington and let them debate it. The ghost of Hitler could referee, and the jury might well be the Dodo, the Great Auk, and the Passenger Pigeon. Violence, naked force, has settled more issues in history than has any other factor, and the contrary opinion is wishful thinking at its worst. Breeds that forget this basic truth have always paid for it with their lives and freedoms.

- Robert Heinlein
All Faith is false, all Faith is true: Truth is the shattered mirror strown In myriad bits; while each believes His little bit the whole to own.

- Sir Richard Francis Burton
I tell the truth, not as much as I would like to, but as much as I dare. I dare more and more as I grow older.

- Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
Risk! Risk Anything! Care no more for the opinion of others, for those other voices. Do the hardest thing on earth for you. Act for yourself. Face the truth.

- Mansfield, Katherine
A Frenchman is self-assured because he regards himself personally both in mind and body as irresistibly attractive to men and women. An Englishman is self-assured as being a citizen of the best-organized state in the world and therefore, as an Englishman, always knows what he should do and knows that all he does as an Englishman is undoubtedly correct. An Italian is self-assured because he is excitable and easily forgets himself and other people. A Russian is self-assured just because he knows nothing and does not want to know anything, since he does not believe that anything can be known. The German's self-assurance is worst of all, stronger and more repulsive than any other, because he imagines that he knows the truth -- science -- which he himself has invented but which is for him the absolute truth.

- Tolstoy, Count Leo
Things are more like they are now than they have ever been before.

- Eisenhower, Dwight D.
It is the essence of truth that it is never excessive. Why should it exaggerate? There is that which should be destroyed and that which should be simply illuminated and studied. How great is the force of benevolent and searching examination! We must not resort to the flame where only light is required.

- Hugo, Victor
In the world of knowledge, the essential Form of Good is the limit of our inquiries, and can barely be perceived; but, when perceived, we cannot help concluding that it is in every case the source of all that is bright and beautiful --in the visible world giving birth to light and its master, and in the intellectual world dispensing, immediately and with full authority, truth and reason --and that whosoever would act wisely, either in private or in public, must set this Form of Good before his eyes.

- Plato
The ultimate good desired is better reached by free trade in ideas [and] the best test of truth is the power of the thought to get itself accepted in the competition of the market.

- Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.
If you begin the day with love in your heart, peace in your nerves, and truth in your mind, you not only benefit by their presence but also bring them to others, to your family and friends, and to all those whose destiny draws across your path that day.

A lie can run around the world before the truth can get its boots on.

- Watt, James
Earthly minds, like mud walls, resist the strongest batteries; and though, perhaps, somethimes the force of a clear argument may make some impression, yet they nevertheless stand firm, keep out the enemy, truth, that would captivate or disturbe them.

- John Locke
Beauty is truth, truth beauty -- that is all ye know on earth, and all ye need to know.

- Keats, John
When my love swears that she is made of truth, I do believe her, though I know she lies.

- William Shakespeare
