Strive always to excel in virtue and truth.
The truth is found when men are free to pursue it.
I AM IGNORANT of absolute truth. But I am humble before my ignorance and therein lies my honor and my reward.
Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
I believe we are here on the planet Earth to live, grow up and do what we can to make this world a better place for all people to enjoy freedom.
Love truth, but pardon error.
Truth is ever to be found in the simplicity, and not in the multiplicity and confusion of things.
The happiness of society is the end of government.
Do not trust all men, but trust men of worth; the former course is silly, the latter a mark of prudence.
The most dangerous untruths are truths slightly distorted.
Establishing lasting peace is the work of education; all politics can do is keep us out of war.
Where ignorance is our master, there is no possibility of real peace.
Peace is not something you wish for; it is something you make, something you are, something you do, and something you give away.
Peace cannot be kept by force; it can only be achieved by understanding.
Do not be afraid to take a chance on peace, to teach peace, to live peace...Peace will be the last word of history.
Sometimes the truth hurts. And sometimes it feels real good.
It is not worthy of a speaker of truth to curse people.
A faith that cannot survive collision with the truth is not worth many regrets.
Lies run sprints, but the truth runs marathons.
The monotony and solitude of a quiet life stimulates the creative mind.
The pure and simple truth is rarely pure and never simple.
