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.
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.
Truth, like light blind. Falsehood, on the contrary, is a beautiful twilight that enhances every object.
A conscience without God is like a court without a judge.
In a time of deceit telling the truth is a revolutionary act.
The most dangerous untruths are truths slightly distorted.
It is truth that liberates, not your effort to be free.
Anything worth doing is worth doing slowly.
Peace cannot be kept by force; it can only be achieved by understanding.
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.
Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
Do not trust all men, but trust men of worth; the former course is silly, the latter a mark of prudence.
The pure and simple truth is rarely pure and never simple.
The trust of the innocent is the liar's most useful tool.
Only enemies speak the truth; friends and lovers lie endlessly, caught in the web of duty.
There is nothing true anywhere, The true is nowhere to be seen; If you say you see the true, This seeing is not the true one.
I quote others only to better express myself.
Peace at home is peace in the country. Peace in the country is peace in the world.
Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth.
If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything.
One can not reflect in streaming water. Only those who know internal peace can give it to others.
