Truth quotes
Truth
If the truth doesn't save us, what does that say about us?

- Lois McMaster Bujold
Let no one believe that he has received the divine kiss, if he knows the truth without loving it or loves it without understanding it. But blessed is that kiss whereby not only is God recognized but also the Father is loved; for there is never full knowledge without perfect love.

- Bernard, St.
Sincerity and truth are the basis of every virtue.

- Confucius
Is discord going to show itself while we are still fighting, is the Jew once again worth less than another? Oh, it is sad, very sad, that once more, for the umpteenth time, the old truth is confirmed: What one Christian does is his own responsibility, what one Jew does is thrown back at all Jews.

- Frank, Anne
I tore myself away from the safe comfort of certainties through my love for truth; and truth rewarded me.

- Warner, Sylvia Ashton
I drink because she nags, he said I nag because he drinks. But if the truth be known to you, He's a lush and she's a shrew.

- Ogden Nash
If the truth be known, most successes are built on a multitude of failures.

There are those, and, thanks to Almighty God, they are to be numbered by tens of thousands, who will not perplex themselves with questionings; simple, genial hearts, who try to do what good they can in the world, and meddle not with matters too high for them; people whose religion is not abstruse but deep, not noisy but intense, not aggressive but laboriously useful; people who have the same habit of mind as the early Christians seem to have worn, ere yet Catholic truth had been defined in formulae, when the Apostles' Creed was symbol enough for the Church, and men were orthodox in heart rather than exact in head. For such it is enough if a fellow-creature loves Him whom they love, and serves Him whom they serve. Personal affection and loyalty to the same unseen Being is to them a communion of saints both real and actual, in the genial warmth of which all minor differences of opinion vanish. . . .

- Preface to Tauler's Sermons. 1854.
Historians desiring to write the actions of men, ought to set down the simple truth, and not say anything for love or hatred; also to choose such an opportunity for writing as it may be lawful to think what they will, and write what they think, which is a rare happiness of the time.

- Raleigh, Sir Walter
Every creature of God is good, if it be sanctified with prayer and thanksgiving! This to me is the master-truth of Christianity, the forgetfulness of which is at the root of almost all error. It seems to me that it was to redeem man and the earth that Christ was made man and used the earth!--that Christianity has never yet been pure, because it never yet, since St. Paul's time, has stood on this as the fundamental truth, and that it has been pure or impure, just in proportion as it has practically and really acknowledged this truth.

- Letters and Memories. 1842.
A caricature is putting the face of a joke on the body of a truth.

- Conrad, Joseph
Who has a daring eye tell downright truths and downright lies.

- Lavater, Johann Kaspar
A platitude is simply a truth repeated until people get tired of hearing it.

- Stanley Baldwin
Our test of truth is a reference to either a present or imagined future majority in favour of our view.

- Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.
Flattery makes friends and truth makes enemies.

- Proverb, Spanish
Say not,'I have found the truth,'but rather,'I have found a truth.'

- Kahlil Gibran
The absolute truth is the thing that makes people laugh

- Reiner, Carl
The truth is the kindest thing we can give folks in the end.

- Harriet Beecher Stowe
The truth is rarely pure and never simple.

- Oscar Wilde
The professors laugh at themselves, they laugh at life; they long ago abjured the bitch-goddess Success, and the best of them will fight for his scholastic ideals with a courage and persistence that would shame a soldier. The professor is not afraid of words like truth; in fact he is not afraid of words at all.

- Bowen, Catherine Drinker
