Truth quotes

Everything you add to the truth subtracts from the truth.

- Solzhenitsyn, Alexander

Science is but an image of the truth.

- Bacon, Francis

Truth, naked, unblushing truth, the first virtue of all serious history, must be the sole recommendation of this personal narrative.

- Gibbon, Edward

Have patience awhile; slanders are not long-lived. Truth is the child of time; erelong she shall appear to vindicate thee.

- Immanuel Kant

Violence has settled more issues in history than any other factor; and contrary opinion is wishful thinking at its worst. Breeds that forget this basic truth have always paid for it with their lives and their freedoms.

- Robert Heinlein

The search for truth begins with the doubt of all'truths'in which one has previously believed.

- Frederich Nietzsche

Truth is always exciting. Speak it, then, Life is dull without it.

- Pearl Buck

A half truth is a whole lie.

- Proverb, Yiddish

New knowledge is the most valuable commodity on earth. The more truth we have to work with, the richer we become.

- Kurt Vonnegut

For historians ought to be precise, truthful, and quite unprejudiced, and neither interest nor fear, hatred nor affection, should cause them to swerve from the path of truth, whose mother is history, the rival of time, the depository of great actions, the witness of what is past, the example and instruction of the present, the monitor of the future.

- Cervantes, Miguel De

That which we have not been forced to decipher, to clarify by our own personal effort, that which was made clear before, is not ours. Only that issues from ourselves which we ourselves extract from the darkness within ourselves and which is unknown to others. And as art exactly recomposes life, an atmosphere of poetry surrounds those truths within ourselves to which we attain, the sweetness of a mystery which is but the twilight through which we have passed.

- Marcel Proust

When the righteous man truth away from his righteousness that he hath committed and doeth that which is neither quite lawful nor quite right, he will generally be found to have gained in amiability what he has lost in holiness.

- Butler, Samuel

I know that most men, including those at ease with problems of the greatest complexity, can seldom accept even the simplest and most obvious truth if it be such as would oblige them to admit the falsity of conlusions which they have delighted in explaining to colleages, which they have proudly taught to others, and which they have woven, thread by thread, into the fabric of their lives.

- Leo Tolstoy

Time, whose tooth gnaws away at everything else, is powerless against truth.

- Huxley, Thomas H.

That in the beginning when the world was young there were a great many thoughts but no such thing as truth. Man made the truths himself and each truth was a composite of a great many vague thoughts. All about in the world were truths and they were all beautiful.

- Anderson, Sherwood

An aphorism can never be the whole truth; it is either a half-truth or a truth-and-a-half.

- Kraus, Karl

Truth is so obscure in these times and falsehood so established that unless one loves the truth, he cannot know it.

- Blaise Pascal

The peril of every fine faculty is the delight of playing with it for pride. Talent is commonly developed at the expense of character, and the greater it grows, the more is the mischief. Talent is mistaken for genius, a dogma or system for truth, ambition for greatest, ingenuity for poetry, sensuality for art.

- Ralph Waldo Emerson

A man should never put on his best trousers when he goes out to battle for freedom and truth.

- Henrik Ibsen

The people have a right to the truth as they have a right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

- Epictetus
