Truth quotes
Truth
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
Rough work, iconoclasm, but the only way to get at truth.

- Oliver Wendell Holmes
Truth is tough. It will not break, like a bubble, at a touch; nay, you may kick it about all day like a football, and it will be round and full at evening.

- Oliver Wendell Holmes
Truth crushed to the earth is truth still and like a seed will rise again.

- Jefferson Davis
If it come to prohibiting, there is aught more likely to be prohibited than truth itself.

- John Milton
Universal orthodoxy is enriched by every new discovery of truth: what at first appeared universal, by wishing to stand still, sooner or later becomes a sect.

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

- Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.
It is a pleasure to stand upon the shore, and to see ships tost upon the sea: a pleasure to stand in the window of a castle, and to see a battle and the adventures thereof below: but no pleasure is comparable to standing upon the vantage ground of truth... and to see the errors, and wanderings, and mists, and tempests, in the vale below.

- Bacon, Francis
There's a helluva distance between wisecracking and wit. Wit has truth in it; wisecracking is simply calisthenics with words.

- Parker, Dorothy
Contemplative and bookish men must of necessity be more quarrelsome than others, because they contend not about matter of fact, nor can determine their controversies by any certain witnesses, nor judges. But as long as they go towards peace, that is Truth, it is no matter which way.

- Donne, John
We must not let go manifest truths because we cannot answer all questions about them.

- Jeremy Collier
We must remember that dissatisfaction at existing evil (the feeling of all young and ardent minds), the struggle to escape from the "circumstance" of the evil world, has a carnal counterfeit--the love of novelty, and self-will, and self-conceit, which may thrust us down into the abysses of misrule and uncertainty; as it has done such men as Shelley and Byron; trying vainly every loophole, beating against the prison bars of an imperfect system; neither degraded enough to make themselves a fool's paradise within it, nor wise enough to escape from it through Christ, "the door into the sheepfold," to return when they will, and bring others with them into the serene empyrean of spiritual truth--truth which explains, and arranges, and hallows, and subdues everything.

- Letters and Memories. 1842.
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.
All great truths are simple in final analysis, and easily understood; if they are not, they are not great truths.

- Hill, Napoleon
I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

- Umberto Eco
The true snob never rests: there is always a higher goal to attain, and there are, by the same token, always more and more people to look down upon.

- Lynes, Russell
I have always loved truth so passionately that I have often resorted to lying as a way of introducing it into the minds which were ignorant of its charms.

- Giovanni Jacopo Casanova
Wit has truth in it; wisecracking is simply calisthenics with words.

- Parker, Dorothy
I want everyone to tell me the truth, even if it costs him his job.

- Goldwyn, Samuel
Neither man nor woman can be worth anything until they have discovered that they are fools. This is the first step towards becoming either estimable or agreeable; and until it be taken there is no hope. The sooner the discovery is made the better, as there is more time and power for taking advantage of it. Sometimes the great truth is found out too late to apply to it any effectual remedy. Sometimes it is never found at all; and these form the desperate and inveterate causes of folly, self-conceit, and impertinence.

- Melbourne, Lord
