Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth.
The truth is incontrovertible, malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end; there it is.
Proverbs are always platitudes until you have personally experienced the truth of them.
The truth knocks on the door and you say, go away, I’m looking for the truth, and it goes away. Puzzling.
Robert M. Pirsig
One fool will deny more truth in half an hour than a wise man can prove in seven years.
People say they love truth, but in reality they want to believe that which they love is true.Truth does not do as much good in the world as the semblance of truth does evil.
Duc de La Rochefoucauld
