Strive always to excel in virtue and truth.
Peace is not something you wish for; it is something you make, something you are, something you do, and something you give away.
It is the nature of truth in general, as of some ores in particular, to be richest when most superficial.
How dreadful knowledge of the truth can be when there's no help in the truth.
The pure and simple truth is rarely pure and never simple.
There is no 'way to peace,' there is only 'peace.
Anyone who doesn't take truth seriously in small matters cannot be trusted in large ones either.
Peace cannot be kept by force; it can only be achieved by understanding.
Tell the truth boldly, whether it hurts or not. Never pander to weakness. If truth is too much for intelligent people and sweeps them away, let them go; the sooner the better.
Truth is a tendency.
There is nothing true anywhere, The true is nowhere to be seen; If you say you see the true, This seeing is not the true one.
A lie can travel half way around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes.
I AM IGNORANT of absolute truth. But I am humble before my ignorance and therein lies my honor and my reward.
Everything should be as simple as it is, but not simpler.
It takes a certain ingenuous faith- but I have it -to believe that people who read and reflect more likely than not come to judge things with liberality and truth.
If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything.
Never tell the truth to people who are not worthy of it.
A conscience without God is like a court without a judge.
It is not truth that matters, but victory
Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without.
The truth may be out there, but the lies are inside your head.
