All truth passes through 3 stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.
Arthur Schopenhauer quotes
A lie would have no sense unless the truth were felt as dangerous.
Alfred Adler quotes
Truth has not special time of its own. Its hour is now -- always and indeed then most truly when it seems unsuitable to actual circumstances.
Albert Schweitzer quotes
I was like a boy playing on the sea-shore, and diverting myself now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me.
Isaac Newton quotes
Let us talk sense to the American people. Let us tell them the truth, that there are no gains without pains.
Adlai E. Stevenson quotes
They have exiled me now from their society and I am pleased, because humanity does not exile except the one whose noble spirit rebels against despotism and oppression. He who does not prefer exile to slavery is not free by any measure of freedom, truth and duty.
Kahlil Gibran quotes
The truth, as the light, makes blind.
Albert Camus quotes
Truth is beautiful, without doubt; but so are lies.
Ralph Waldo Emerson quotes
I've learned to trust myself, to listen to truth, to not be afraid of it and to not try and hide it.
Sarah McLachlan quotes
When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love has always won. There have been tyrants and murderers and for a time they seem invincible but in the end, they always fall -- think of it, ALWAYS.
Mahatma Gandhi quotes
