Better a lie which heals than a truth which wounds.
From the viewpoint of absolute truth, what we feel and experience in our ordinary daily life is all delusion. Of all the various delusions, the sense of discrimination between oneself and others is the worst form, as it creates nothing but unpleasantness for both sides. If we can realize and meditate on ultimate truth, it will cleanse our impurities of mind and thus eradicate the sense of discrimination. This will help to create true love for one another. The search for ultimate truth is, therefore, vitally important.
Dalai Lama quotes
He that speaks truth must have one foot in the stirrup.
The important thing is not the finding, it is the seeking, it is the devotion with which one spins the wheel of prayer and scripture, discovering the truth little by little. If this machine gave you the truth immediately, you would not recognize it, because your heart would not have been purified by the long quest.
Ursula K. LeGuin quotes
The only significance of life consists in helping to establish the kingdom of God; and this can be done only by means of the acknowledgment and profession of the truth by each one of us.
Leo Nikolaevich Tolstoy quotes
All perception of truth is the detection of an analogy.
Henry David Thoreau quotes
Falsehood is cowardice, the truth courage.
Hosea Ballou quotes
Not being known doesn't stop the truth from being true.
Richard Bach quotes
When the righteous man truth away from his righteousness that he hath committed and doeth that which is neither quite lawful nor quite right, he will generally be found to have gained in amiability what he has lost in holiness.
Samuel Butler quotes
Truth never damages a cause that is just.
Mahatma Gandhi quotes
