There are many truths of which the full meaning cannot be realized until personal experience has brought it home.
John Stuart Mill quotes
A thousand cups of wine do not suffice when true friends meet, but half a sentence is too much when there is no meeting of minds.
Chinese Proverb quotes
Truth is so great a perfection, that if God would render himself visible to men, he would choose light for his body and truth for his soul
The true lover of learning then must his earliest youth, as far as in him lies, desire all truth. . .He whose desires are drawn toward knowledge in every form will be absorbed in the pleasures of the soul, and will hardly feel bodily pleasures- -I mean, if he be a true philosopher and not a sham one. . .Then how can he who has the magnificence of mind and is the spectator of all times and all existence, think much of human life? He cannot. Or can such a one account death fearful? No indeed
It takes two to speak truth, one to speak and another to hear.
Henry David Thoreau quotes
How much truth can a spirit bear, how much truth can a spirit dare? ... that became for me more and more the real measure of value.
Friedrich Nietzsche quotes
The truth is more important than the facts.
Frank Lloyd Wright quotes
The truth, the hope of any time, must always be sought in minorities
Ralph Waldo Emerson quotes
First and last, what is demanded of genius is love of truth.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang von quotes
I don't know much about creative writing programs. But they're not telling the truth if they don't teach, one, that writing is hard work, and, two, that you have to give up a great deal of life, your personal life, to be a writer.
Doris Lessing quotes
