A thought is an arrow shot at the truth; it can hit a point, but not cover the whole target. But the archer is too well satisfied with his success to ask anything farther.
Fanatics can justify practically any atrocity to themselves. The more untenable their position becomes, the harder they hold to it, and the worse the things they are willing to do to support it.
A perception, sudden as blinking, that subject and object are one, will lead to a deeply mysterious understanding; and by this understanding you will awaken to the truth.
Status will get you nowhere. Only an open heart will allow you to float equally between everyone.
Latter-day scepticism is fond of calling itself progressive; but scepticism is really reactionary. Scepticism goes back; it attempts to unsettle what has already been settled. Instead of trying to break up new fields with its plough, it simply tries to break up the plough.
In reading the scriptures of truth, we often put wrong constructions upon them, and apply them improperly; and I apprehend it has often been the case in relation to this portion, particularly that part in relation to man's seeking out many inventions.
First melted off the hope of youth Then Fancy's rainbow fast withdrew And then experience told me truth In mortal bosoms never grew 'Twas grief enough to think mankind All hollow servile insincere But worse to trust to my own mind And find the same corruption there
Sometimes, some lies that spoken with high confidencecould be more receptive than facts that spoken with doubt.
Untuk sesuatu yang paling kuinginkan melebihi apa pun.
When you hate someone you used to love, and you think he's done something awful - he probably has.
Nothing factual that I write or say will be as truthful as my fiction.
I don't believe that aliens exist,but I do believe that any new facts can strengthen foundation of my belief.
Who are you going to believe, me or your own eyes?
How strange it was that man could neither brookThe presence nor the absence of his look!
True art is thoughtful, emotional examination of how human themes impact the overall experience of existing. The rest is kitsch.
Although the pure truth has never been stated, nevertheless it has never been lost. Its existence does not depend upon human statement but upon human sensitivity. In this it is unlike all other knowledge.
The truths that matter most to us come always half spoken.
And the mercy seat is melting, And I think my blood is boiling, And in a way I'm spoiling, All the fun with all this truth and consequence. An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth, And anyway I told the truth, And I'm not afraid to die.
Expiring for love is beautiful but stupid.
The more we live with what we imagine others think of us, the less we live with truth.
