Man is always prey to his truths. Once he has admitted them, he cannot free himself from them.
The truth is not for all men but only for those who seek it.
It is better to offer no excuse than a bad one.
The monotony and solitude of a quiet life stimulates the creative mind.
Anyone who doesn't take truth seriously in small matters cannot be trusted in large ones either.
Anything worth doing is worth doing slowly.
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.
The happiness of society is the end of government.
Peace cannot be kept by force; it can only be achieved by understanding.
When the choice is to be right or to be kind, always make the choice that brings peace
If you're gonna be two-faced at least make one of them pretty.
If everyone demanded peace instead of another television set, then there'd be peace.
Peace is not something you wish for; it is something you make, something you are, something you do, and something you give away.
Rather than love, than money, than fame, give me truth.
Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth.
But the attitude of faith is to let go, and become open to truth, whatever it might turn out to be.
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.
The truth is more important than the facts.
Truth, like light blind. Falsehood, on the contrary, is a beautiful twilight that enhances every object.
A faith that cannot survive collision with the truth is not worth many regrets.
No matter how big the lie; repeat it often enough and the masses will regard it as the truth.
