Anything worth doing is worth doing slowly.
A truth that's told with bad intent beats all the lies you can invent.
Truth is stranger than fiction, but it is because Fiction is obliged to stick to possibilities; Truth isn't.
Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
Truth can never be told so as to be understood and not be believed.
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.
The happiness of society is the end of government.
Truth is a tendency.
There is no 'way to peace,' there is only 'peace.
Peace at home is peace in the country. Peace in the country is peace in the world.
The most dangerous untruths are truths slightly distorted.
Truth suffers from too much analysis.
Peace is always beautiful.
The pure and simple truth is rarely pure and never simple.
Anyone who doesn't take truth seriously in small matters cannot be trusted in large ones either.
It isn't enough to talk about peace; one must believe in it. And it isn't enough to believe in it; one must work at it.
Sometimes the truth hurts. And sometimes it feels real good.
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.
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.
Strive always to excel in virtue and truth.
Establishing lasting peace is the work of education; all politics can do is keep us out of war.
