Fiction is the lie through which we tell the truth.
It is truth that liberates, not your effort to be free.
The essence of being human is that one does not seek perfection.
Truth is on the side of the oppressed.
One can not reflect in streaming water. Only those who know internal peace can give it to others.
If everyone demanded peace instead of another television set, then there'd be peace.
The purpose of argument is to change the nature of truth.
The happiness of society is the end of government.
The trust of the innocent is the liar's most useful tool.
Those who cry the loudest are not always the ones who are hurt the most.
A conscience without God is like a court without a judge.
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.
Strive always to excel in virtue and truth.
Anything worth doing is worth doing slowly.
Peace is always beautiful.
When the choice is to be right or to be kind, always make the choice that brings peace
Peace cannot be kept by force; it can only be achieved by understanding.
Never tell the truth to people who are not worthy of it.
I'm for truth, no matter who tells it. I'm for justice, no matter who it is for or against. I'm a human being, first and foremost, and as such I'm for whoever and whatever benefits humanity as a whole.
I AM IGNORANT of absolute truth. But I am humble before my ignorance and therein lies my honor and my reward.
Anyone who doesn't take truth seriously in small matters cannot be trusted in large ones either.
