Truth can never be told so as to be understood and not be believed.
To love truth for truth's sake is the principal part of human perfection in this world, and the seed-plot of all other virtues.
Do not trust all men, but trust men of worth; the former course is silly, the latter a mark of prudence.
No one lights a lamp and puts it in a place where it will be hidden, or under a bowl. Instead he puts it on its stand, so that those who come in may see the light.

The pure and simple truth is rarely pure and never simple.
The most dangerous untruths are truths slightly distorted.
Tell the truth boldly, whether it hurts or not. Never pander to weakness. If truth is too much for intelligent people and sweeps them away, let them go; the sooner the better.
Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without.
Peace cannot be kept by force; it can only be achieved by understanding.
Don't keep a man guessing too long - he's sure to find the answer somewhere else
