If you would be a real seeker after truth, it is necessary that at least once in your life you doubt, as far as possible, all things.
The truth is found when men are free to pursue it.
Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored.
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.
A lie can travel half way around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes.

It isn't enough to talk about peace; one must believe in it. And it isn't enough to believe in it; one must work at it.
Truth suffers from too much analysis.
