When the choice is to be right or to be kind, always make the choice that brings peace
There's a world of difference between truth and facts. Facts can obscure truth.
Only enemies speak the truth; friends and lovers lie endlessly, caught in the web of duty.
Rats and roaches live by competition under the laws of supply and demand; it is the privilege of human beings to live under the laws of justice and mercy.
A conscience without God is like a court without a judge.
Truth is ever to be found in the simplicity, and not in the multiplicity and confusion of things.
Truth is stranger than fiction, but it is because Fiction is obliged to stick to possibilities; Truth isn't.
Truth suffers from too much analysis.
I quote others only to better express myself.
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.
But the attitude of faith is to let go, and become open to truth, whatever it might turn out to be.
Never apologise for showing feeling. When you do so, you apologise for the truth.
Do not trust all men, but trust men of worth; the former course is silly, the latter a mark of prudence.
It is truth that liberates, not your effort to be free.
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.
If you have no critics you'll likely have no success.
The truth is found when men are free to pursue it.
There is no 'way to peace,' there is only 'peace.
The happiness of society is the end of government.
Peace is always beautiful.
Strive always to excel in virtue and truth.
