Daily Inspirations- Truth in Modern Life2018-01-16T13:32:20+00:00

“An elected politician who cannot speak the Truth is a reflection of the untrue mental concepts of the electorate. The solution to this problem lies in my mind and yours. If you and I cultivate the meditational skills necessary to serve the Truth in thought, word and deed, we’ll change the consciousness of ourselves, the electorate and those who serve in public office.”

LEONARD PERLMUTTER (Ram Lev)

“Truth is like the sun. Your can shut it out for a time, but it ain’t goin’ away.”

ELVIS PRESLEY

“Anyone who doesn’t take truth seriously in small matters cannot be trusted in large ones either.”

ALBERT EINSTEIN

“The pursuit of truth will set you free; even if you never catch up with it.”

CLARENCE DARROW

“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.”

RENE DESCARTES

“The simple way of speaking the truth is by not lying. If you do not lie, you are speaking the truth. But if you are trying to speak the truth and you do not know what truth is, then you are making your own truth. You say my truth is my truth and I am speaking the truth and you should listen to me. That is confusion. Do not lie. By lying, you practice speaking the truth.”

SWAMI RAMA

“All truths are easy to understand once they are discovered; the point is to discover them.”

GALILEO LALILEI

“In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.”

GEORGE ORWELL

“If you tell the truth, you don’t have to remember anything.”

MARK TWAIN

“A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.”

WINSTON CHURCHILL

“Half a truth is often a great lie.”

BENJAMIN FRANKLIN

“Truth, like gold, is to be obtained not by its growth, but by washing away from it all that is not gold.”

LEO TOLSTOY

“Truth is tough. It will not break, like a bubble, at a touch; nay, you may kick it about all day like a football, and it will be round and full at evening.”

OLIVER WENDELL HOLMES, SR.

“Above all, don’t lie to yourself. The man who lies to himself and listens to his own lie comes to a point that he cannot distinguish the truth within him, or around him, and so loses all respect for himself and for others. And having no respect he ceases to love.”

FYODOR DOSTOYEVSKY
The Brothers Karamazov

“An error does not become truth by reason of multiplied propagation, nor does truth become error because nobody sees it.”

MAHATMA GANDHI

“Adversity is the first path to truth.”

LORD BYRON

“The unexamined life is not worth living.”

SOCRATES

“If you want to tell people the truth, make them laugh, otherwise they’ll kill you.”

OLIVER WILDE
The Nightingale and the Rose

“People think that a liar gains a victory over his victim. What I’ve learned is that a lie is an act of self-abdication, because one surrenders one’s reality to the person to whom one lies, making that person one’s master, condemning oneself from then on to faking the sort of reality that person’s view requires to be faked…The man who lies is the world’s slave from then on… There are no white lies, there is only the blackest of destruction, and a white lie is the blackest of all.”

AYN RAND
Atlas Shrugged

 

“Honesty is the first chapter in the book of wisdom.”

THOMAS JEFFERSON

“Silence is the mother of truth.”

BENJAMIN DISRAELI
