Truth 2

   
   
Believe those who are seeking
the truth; doubt those who find it.

Andre Gide

   

The truth will set you free.  But before it does, it might make you angry.       -Jerry Joiner

   
You ought to be true for the sake of the folks who think you are true.  You never should stoop to a deed that your folks think you would not do.  If you are false to yourself, be the blemish but small, you have injured your folks; you have been false to them all.       -Edgar A. Guest
   
If anyone can show me, and convince me, that I have acted or thought in error, I will gladly change; for I seek truth, and no one was ever injured by the truth.  But people injure themselves if they live with self-deception and ignorance.       -Marcus Aurelius
    
Truth is completely spontaneous.  Lies have to be taught.        -R. Buckminster Fuller
  
The Buddha spoke gently, "Once a person is caught by belief in a doctrine, one loses all one's freedom. When one becomes dogmatic, that person believes his or her doctrine is the only truth and that all other doctrines are heresy.  Disputes and conflicts all arise from narrow views. They can extend endlessly, wasting precious time and sometimes even leading to war. Attachment to views is the greatest impediment to the spiritual path. Bound to narrow views, one becomes so entangled that it is no longer possible to let the door of truth open."       -Thich Nhat Hanh

    
In every generation there have to be some fools who will speak the truth as they see it.      -Boris Pasternak
  
There are no new truths, but only truths that have not been recognized by those who have perceived them without noticing.  A truth is something that everyone can be shown to know and to have known, as people say, all along.       -Mary McCarthy
   
Life is short, but truth works far and lives long; let us speak the truth.       -Arthur Schopenhauer
  
Keep one thing forever in view--the truth; and if you do this, though it may seem to lead you away from the opinion of people, it will assuredly conduct you to the throne of God.      -Horace Mann
  
Truth does not change according to our ability to stomach it emotionally.      -Flannery O’Connor
  
To love truth is the principal part of human perfection in this world, and the seed-plot of all other virtues.       -John Locke
  
In proportion as we perceive and embrace the truth we do become just, heroic, magnanimous, divine.       -William Lloyd Garrison
  
Pour out light and truth as God pours sunshine and rain; no longer seek knowledge as the luxury of a few, but dispense it amongst all as the bread of life.       -Horace Mann
  
It's not enough to know your truth, you must live it!       -Stephen C. Paul
   
It is not always easy to hear the truth, but . . . . the truth can lead us on to be better than we already are.  When we walk in the truth, we are walking toward God.  God is truth, and the more time we spend in honesty, the more time we spend with God.  Not only should we seek out truth in others, but we should let others know that they will receive truth when they come to us.  There is very little we could want more than for other people to be able to trust us.  Trust is the cornerstone upon which solid and lasting friendships are built.  We can do a person no greater service than to deal with them in truth and love.        -Dan and Nancy Dick
  
Today I bent the truth to be kind, and I have no regret, for I am far surer of what is kind than I am of what is true.        -Robert Brault
  
If you do not tell the truth about yourself, you cannot tell it about other people.       -Virginia Woolf
  
Truth has no special time of its own.  Its hour is now--always, and indeed then most truly when it seems most unsuitable to actual circumstances.    -Albert Schweitzer, On the Edge of the Primeval Forest
  
Not truth, but faith, it is that keeps the world alive.       -Edna St. Vincent Millay
  
There's an element of truth in every idea that lasts long enough to be called corny.       -Irving Berlin
  
We never fully grasp the import of any true statement until we have a clear notion of what the opposite untrue statement would be.       -William James
  
All truth is safe and nothing else is safe, but those who keep back truth, or withhold it from others, from motives of expediency, are either cowards or criminals.       -James Russell Lowell

Truth    

  
Not being known doesn't stop the truth from being true.       -Richard Bach
  
The TRUTH:  It may not lead you to where you thought you were going, but it will always lead you somewhere better.  When ignored, it will eventually show itself.  The closeness of your relationships is directly proportional to the degree to which you have revealed the truth about yourself. It can be painful.       -unattributed
  
You never find yourself until you face the truth.       -Pearl Bailey
