Truth quotes
Truth
A bare assertion is not necessarily the naked truth.

- Prentice, George D.
Life may change, but it may fly not; Hope may vanish, but can die not; Truth be veiled, but still it burneth; Love repulsed, -- but it returneth.

- Shelley, Percy Bysshe
I have always taken as the standard of the mode of teaching and writing, not the abstract, particular, professional philosopher, but universal man, that I have regarded man as the criterion of truth, and not this or that founder of a system, and have from the first placed the highest excellence of the philosopher in this, that he abstains, both as a man and as an author, from the ostentation of philosophy, i.e., that he is a philosopher only in reality, not formally, that he is a quiet philosopher, not a loud and still less a brawling one.

- Feuerbach, Ludwig
Nothing leads the scientist so astray as a premature truth.

- Rostand, Jean

- Cioran, E. M.
The greatest friend of truth is Time, her greatest enemy is Prejudice, and her constant companion is Humility.

- Colton, Charles Caleb
It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man is in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.

- Austen, Jane
Artistic growth is, more than it is anything else, a refining of the sense of truthfulness. The stupid believe that to be truthful is easy; only the artist, the great artist, knows how difficult it is.

- Cather, Willa
For everything exists and not one sigh nor smile nor tear, one hair nor particle of dust, not one can pass away.

- Blake, William
Truly, to tell lies is not honorable; but when the truth entails tremendous ruin, To speak dishonorably is pardonable.

- Sophocles
The English, in truth, do add here and there some other words when speaking; but it is obvious that ’God-damn’ is the foundation of their language.

- Pierre-Augustin Caron de Beau Marchais
Political language - and with variations this is true of all political parties, from Conservatives to Anarchists - is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind.

- George Orwell
Truth is something you stumble into when you think you're going someplace else.

- Jerry Garcia
It is always good policy to tell the truth unless of course you are an exceptionally good liar. Jerome K. Jerome It is a puzzling thing. The truth knocks on the door and you say, go away, I'm looking for the truth. and so it goes away. Puzzling.

- Pirsig, Robert M.
Nothing is true. Everything is permitted.

- Sabbah
The pursuit of truth shall set you free - even if you never catch up with it.
