A fact never went into partnership with a miracle. Truth scorns the assistance of wonders. A fact will fit every other fact in the universe, and that is how you can tell whether it is or is not a fact. A lie will not fit anything except another lie.
Robert Green Ingersoll quotes
Truth arises more readily from error than from confusion.
Francis Bacon, Sr. quotes
And the bramble said unto the trees, If in truth ye anoint me king over you, then come and put your trust in my shadow: and if not, let fire come out of the bramble, and devour the cedars of Lebanon. (Judges 9:15)
The Bible quotes
A lively, disinterested, persistent liking for truth is extraordinarily rare. Action and faith enslave thought, both of them in order not to be troubled or inconvenienced by reflection, criticism or doubt.
Henri Frédéric Amiel quotes
Of course it's the same old story. Truth usually is the same old story.
Margaret Thatcher quotes
Fear is the main source of superstition, and one of the main sources of cruelty. To conquer fear is the beginning of wisdom, in the pursuit of truth as in the endeavour after a worthy manner of life.
Bertrand Russell quotes
As scarce as truth is, the supply has always been in excess of the demand.
Josh Billings quotes
Justice is truth in action.
Benjamin Disraeli quotes
Man can embody truth but he cannot know it. The intellect of man is forced to choose perfection of the life, or of the work, and if it take the second must refuse a heavenly mansion, raging in the dark.
William Butler Yeats quotes
In Buddhism we have relative truth and absolute truth.
Dalai Lama quotes
