Truth

Truth is so obscure in these times, and falsehood so established, that, unless we love the truth, we cannot know it.  ~ Blaise Psacal

Anyone who doesn’t take truth seriously in small matters cannot be trusted in large ones either. ~ Albert Einstein

If you would be a real seeker after truth, it is necessary that at least once in your life you doubt, as far as possible, all things. ~ Rene Descartes

Most people find facts irritating. Facts interfere with their systems of denial.~ Walter Darby Bannard

When you want to help people, you tell them the truth. When you want to help yourself, you tell them what they want to hear.  ~ Thomas Sowell

The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is. ~ Winston Churchill

All truths are easy to understand once they are discovered; the point is to discover them. ~ Galileo Galilei

You don’t promote truth by banning error. You don’t have a monopoly on truth in the first place, and you may discover your “truths” are errors or lies. Even if you’re right, and epistemically 100% certain, it doesn’t give you the authority to ban someone from saying something different. The only proven effective way to counter bad information is with good information. The only way to overcome lies is with truth and the government can’t be the arbiter of what that is. ~ Gerard Baker (Wall Street Journal)
