A first rate soup is better than a second rate painting.
Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
I can feel guilty about the past, apprehensive about the future, but only in the present can I act. The ability to be in the present moment is a major component of mental wellness.
Peace begins with a smile..
The most dangerous untruths are truths slightly distorted.
The past is but the beginning of a beginning, and all that is and has been is but the twilight of the dawn.
Do not be afraid to take a chance on peace, to teach peace, to live peace...Peace will be the last word of history.
Truth, like light blind. Falsehood, on the contrary, is a beautiful twilight that enhances every object.
Never tell the truth to people who are not worthy of it.
To love truth for truth's sake is the principal part of human perfection in this world, and the seed-plot of all other virtues.
Where ignorance is our master, there is no possibility of real peace.
Truth suffers from too much analysis.
No one lights a lamp and puts it in a place where it will be hidden, or under a bowl. Instead he puts it on its stand, so that those who come in may see the light.
One can not reflect in streaming water. Only those who know internal peace can give it to others.
The victor will never be asked if he told the truth.
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.
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.
The truth is not for all men but only for those who seek it.
It is not truth that matters, but victory
If you're not ready to die for it, take the word 'freedom' out of your vocabulary.
There is nothing so powerful as truth - and often nothing so strange.
