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.
A conscience without God is like a court without a judge.
Anything worth doing is worth doing slowly.
It is better to offer no excuse than a bad one.
Only enemies speak the truth; friends and lovers lie endlessly, caught in the web of duty.
If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything.
If you're not ready to die for it, take the word 'freedom' out of your vocabulary.
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.
Establishing lasting peace is the work of education; all politics can do is keep us out of war.
I hope that real love and truth are stronger in the end than any evil or misfortune in the world.
Peace cannot be kept by force; it can only be achieved by understanding.
The pure and simple truth is rarely pure and never simple.
I'm for truth, no matter who tells it. I'm for justice, no matter who it is for or against. I'm a human being, first and foremost, and as such I'm for whoever and whatever benefits humanity as a whole.
If everyone demanded peace instead of another television set, then there'd be peace.
No matter how big the lie; repeat it often enough and the masses will regard it as the truth.
Peace is not something you wish for; it is something you make, something you are, something you do, and something you give away.
I speak the truth not so much as I would, but as much as I dare, and I dare a little more as I grow older.
Peace at home is peace in the country. Peace in the country is peace in the world.
You shall know the truth and the truth shall make you mad.
The truth may be out there, but the lies are inside your head.
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.
