But the creative principle resides in mathematics. In a certain sense, therefore, I hold true that pure thought can grasp reality, as the ancients dreamed.
Albert Einstein quotes
Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence. True friendship is a plant of slow grow, and must undergo and withstand the shocks of adversity before it is entitled to the appellation.
George Washington quotes
Falsehood has an infinity of combinations, but truth has only one mode of being.
Jean-Jacques Rousseau quotes
To be prosperous is not to be superior, and should form no barrier between men. Wealth out not to secure the prosperous the slightest consideration. The only distinctions which should be recognized are those of the soul, of strong principle, of incorruptible integrity, of usefulness, of cultivated intellect, of fidelity in seeking the truth.
William Ellery Channing quotes
Wise are they who have learned these truths: Trouble is temporary. Time is tonic. Tribulation is a test tube.
William Arthur Ward quotes
There are truths that are not for all men, nor for all occasions
Philosopher: A lover of wisdom, which is to say, Truth
I was bold in the pursuit of knowledge, never fearing to follow truth and reason to whatever results they led, and bearding every authority which stood in their way.
Thomas Jefferson quotes
Irrationally held truths may be more harmful than reasoned errors
Thomas Henry Huxley quotes
Are you not ashamed of caring so much for the making of money and for fame and prestige, when you neither think nor care about wisdom and truth and the improvement of your soul?
