I AM IGNORANT of absolute truth. But I am humble before my ignorance and therein lies my honor and my reward.
The truth is not for all men but only for those who seek it.
Anyone who doesn't take truth seriously in small matters cannot be trusted in large ones either.
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 trust of the innocent is the liar's most useful tool.
Fiction is the lie through which we tell the truth.
If you're not ready to die for it, take the word 'freedom' out of your vocabulary.
Adversity is the first path to truth.
The essence of being human is that one does not seek perfection.
Truth is stranger than fiction, but it is because Fiction is obliged to stick to possibilities; Truth isn't.
The truth is more important than the facts.
Of life's two chief prizes, beauty and truth, I found the first in a loving heart and the second in a laborer's hand.
Rather than love, than money, than fame, give me truth.
It is better to offer no excuse than a bad one.

Do not trust all men, but trust men of worth; the former course is silly, the latter a mark of prudence.
The victor will never be asked if he told the truth.
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.
I quote others only to better express myself.
It is not truth that matters, but victory
If you're gonna be two-faced at least make one of them pretty.
