Truth

Byron Katie :

I’m a lover of reality.
When I argue with What Is, I lose,
but only 100% of the time.

Emily Dickinson :

Truth is so rare that it is delightful to tell it.

Agnes Repplier:

There are few nudities so objectionable as the naked truth.

Lillian Hellman:

What a word is truth. Slippery, tricky, unreliable.

Agatha Christie:

Truth, however bitter, can be accepted, and woven into a design for living.

Marie Von Ebner-Eschenbach:

Many a truth is the result of an error.

Anais Nin:

I don’t tell the truth any more to those who can’t make use of it. I tell it mostly to myself, because it always changes me.

Ann Landers:

The naked truth is always better than the best-dressed lie.

Barbara Grizzuti Harrison:

Truth—is the first casualty of tyranny.

Bette Midler:

I never know how much of what I say is true. If I did, I’d bore myself to death.

Christina Baldwin:

Spiritual empowerment is evidence in our lives by our willingness to tell ourselves the truth, to listen to the truth when it’s told to us, and to dispense truth as lovingly as possible, when we feel compelled to talk from the heart.

Cynthia Ozick:

It is useless either to hate or to love the truth – but it should be noticed.

Dorothy L. Sayers:

The great advantage about telling the truth is that nobody ever believes it.

Elizabeth Goudge:

Most of the basic truths of life sound absurd at first hearing.

Emily Dickinson:

The truth must dazzle gradually / Or every man be blind.

George Sand:

Let us accept truth, even when it surprises us and alters our views.

Harriet Beecher Stowe:

The truth is the kindest thing we can give folks in the end.

Anais Nin:

There are few human beings who receive the truth, complete and staggering, by instant illumination. Most of them acquire it fragment by fragment, on a small scale, by successive developments, cellularly, like a laborious mosaic.

Jane Austen:

Seldom, very seldom, does complete truth belong to any human disclosure; seldom can it happen that something is not a little disguised, or a little mistaken.

Jean Rhys:

I am the only real truth I know.


Katharine Hepburn:

A sharp knife cuts the quickest and hurts the least.

Laura Riding Jackson:

We shall know that we have begun to speak true by an increased hunger for true-speaking; we shall have the whole hunger only after we have given ourselves the first taste of it.

Lillian Hellman:

Truth made you a traitor as it often does in a time of scoundrels.

Margaret Deland:

Every new truth begins in a shocking heresy.

Margaret Thatcher:

Of course, it’s the same old story. Truth usually is the same old story.

Marie Von Ebner-Eschenbach:

The simplest and most familiar truth seems new and wonderful the instant we ourselves experience it for the first time.

Mary McCarthy:

There are no new truths, but only truths that have not been recognized by those who have perceived them without noticing.

Mary Wollstonecraft:

What a weak barrier is truth when it stands in the way of an hypotheses!

Mary Baker Eddy:

Truth is immortal; error is mortal.

Mary Kay Blakely:

The truth invariably arrives several years after you need it.

Pearl Bailey:

You never find yourself until you face the truth.

Peg Braken:

Many people choose, early on, their own truths from the large smorgasbord available. And once they’ve chosen them, for good reason or no reason, they then proceed rather selectively, wisely gathering whatever will bolster them or at least carry out the color scheme.

Phyllis Bottome:

Truth is its own defense.

Rita Mae Brown:

So often the truth is told with hate, and lies are told with love.

Shana Alexander:

Between the two poles of whole-truth and half-truth is slung the chancy hammock in which we all rock.

Susan Ohanian:

There are only two ways to tell the one hundred percent truth:

anonymously and posthumously.

Susan Sontag:

The truth is balance, but the opposite of truth, which is unbalance, may not be a lie.

Byron Katie:

The teacher you need is the person you’re living with.

Sylvia Ashton-Warner:

Truth has beauty, power and necessity.

Byron Katie:

Anything you want to ask a teacher, ask yourself,
and wait for the answer in silence.
