Winston Churchill Quotes about truth
#2583 Winston Churchill

[O]ur loyal, brave people ... should know the truth. ... they should know that we have sustained a defeat without a war, ... and that the terrible words have for the time being been pronounced against the Western democracies; ‘Thou art weighed in the balance and found wanting.’ And do not suppose that this is the end. This is only the beginning of the reckoning. This is only the first sip, the first foretaste of a bitter cup which will be proferred to us year by year unless by a supreme recovery of moral health and martial vigour, we arise again and take our stand for freedom as in the olden time. .

Winston Churchill Quotes about truth

Napoleon I of France Quotes about truth
#2817 Napoleon I of France

It is a mistake, too, to say that the face is the mirror of the soul. The truth is, men are very hard to know, and yet, not to be deceived, we must judge them by their present actions, but for the present only. .

Napoleon I of France Quotes about truth
#2836 Napoleon I of France

The truth is that one ought to serve his people worthily, and not strive solely to please them. The best way to gain a people is to do that which is best for them. Nothing is more dangerous than to flatter a people. If it does not get what it wants immediately, it is irritated and thinks that promises have not been kept; and if then it is resisted, it hates so much the more as it feels itself deceived. .

Napoleon I of France Quotes about truth
#2857 Napoleon I of France

It must be recognized that the real truths of history are hard to discover. Happily, for the most part, they are rather matters of curiosity than of real importance. .

George Bernard Shaw Quotes about truth
#3500 George Bernard Shaw

I am no mere chance pile of flesh and bone: if I were only that, I should fall into corruption and dust before your eyes. I am the embodiment of a thought of God: I am the Word made flesh: that is what holds me together standing before you in the image of God. ... The Word is God. And God is within you. ... In so far as you know the truth you have it from my God, who is your heavenly father and mine. He has many names and his nature is manifold. ... It is by children who are wiser than their fathers, subjects who are wiser than their emperors, beggars and vagrants who are wiser than their priests, that men rise from being beasts of prey to believing in me and being saved. ... By their fruits ye shall know them. Beware how you kill a thought that is new to you. For that thought may be the foundation of theon earth. .

George Bernard Shaw Quotes about truth
#3559 Douglas Adams

What was theprinciple? 'Once you have discounted the impossible, then whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.' I reject that entirely. The impossible often has a kind of integrity to it which the merely improbable lacks. How often have you been presented with an apparently rational explanation of something that works in all respects other than one, which is just that it is hopelessly improbable? Your instinct is to say 'Yes, but he or she simply wouldn't do that.' .

Douglas Adams Quotes about truth
#3689 Woody Allen

Death is a state of non-being. That which is not, does not exist. Therefore death does not exist. Only truth exists. Truth and beauty. Each is interchangeable, but are aspects of themselves. Er, what specifically did they say they had in mind for me? .

Woody Allen Quotes about truth
#3709 Woody Allen

Aristotle Quotes about truth
#3883 Francis Bacon

Truth therefore and utility are here the very same thing… .

Francis Bacon Quotes about truth
#3887 Francis Bacon

The logic now in use serves rather to fix and give stability to the errors which have their foundation in commonly received notions than to help the search for truth. So it does more harm than good. .

Francis Bacon Quotes about truth
#3889 Francis Bacon

There are and can be only two ways of searching into and discovering truth. The one flies from the senses and particulars to the most general axioms, and from these principles, the truth of which it takes for settled and immovable, proceeds to judgment and to the discovery of middle axioms. And this way is now in fashion. The other derives axioms from the senses and particulars, rising by a gradual and unbroken ascent, so that it arrives at the most general axioms last of all. This is the true way, but as yet untried. .

Francis Bacon Quotes about truth
#3918 Francis Bacon

Since my logic aims to teach and instruct the understanding, not that it may with the slender tendrils of the mind snatch at and lay hold of abstract notions (as the common logic does), but that it may in very truth dissect nature, and discover the virtues and actions of bodies, with their laws as determined in matter; so that this science flows not merely from the nature of the mind, but also from the nature of things. .

Francis Bacon Quotes about truth
#3930 Francis Bacon

What is truth? said jesting Pilate, and would not stay for an answer. .

Francis Bacon Quotes about truth
#3931 Francis Bacon

Certainly, it is heaven upon earth, to have a man's mind move in charity, rest in providence, and turn upon the poles of truth. .

Francis Bacon Quotes about truth
#3949 Francis Bacon

No pleasure is comparable to the standing upon the vantage-ground of truth. .

Francis Bacon Quotes about truth
#4348 Confucius

I do not open up the truth to one who is not eager to get knowledge, nor help out any one who is not anxious to explain himself. When I have presented one corner of a subject to any one, and he cannot from it learn the other three, I do not repeat my lesson. .

Confucius Quotes about truth
#4408 Confucius

The superior man, even when he is not moving, has a feeling of reverence, and while he speaks not, he has the feeling of truthfulness. .

Confucius Quotes about truth
#4423 Ralph Waldo Emerson

Place yourself in the middle of the stream of power and wisdom which animates all whom it floats, and you are without effort impelled to truth, to right and a perfect contentment. .

Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes about truth
#4437 Ralph Waldo Emerson

If the colleges were better, if they ... had the power of imparting valuable thought, creative principles, truths which become powers, thoughts which become talents, — if they could cause that a mind not profound should become profound, — we should all rush to their gates: instead of contriving inducements to draw students, you would need to set police at the gates to keep order in the in-rushing multitude. .

Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes about truth
#4449 Ralph Waldo Emerson

A mind does not receive truth as a chest receives jewels that are put into it, but as the stomach takes up food into the system. It is no longer food, but flesh, and is assimilated. The appetite and the power of digestion measure our right to knowledge. He has it who can use it. As soon as our accumulation overruns our invention or power to use, the evils of intellectual gluttony begin,— congestion of the brain, apoplexy and strangulation. .

Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes about truth
#4464 Ralph Waldo Emerson

The Religion that is afraid of science dishonours God and commits suicide. It acknowledges that it is not equal to the whole of truth, that it legislates, tyrannizes over a village of God's empires but is not the immutable universal law. Every influx of atheism, of skepticism is thus made useful as a mercury pill assaulting and removing a diseased religion and making way for truth. .

Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes about truth
#4504 Ralph Waldo Emerson

The soul active sees absolute truth; and utters truth, or creates. .

Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes about truth
#4522 Ralph Waldo Emerson

Explore, and explore, and explore. Be neither chided nor flattered out of your position of perpetual inquiry. Neither dogmatise yourself, nor accept another's dogmatism. Why should you renounce your right to traverse the star-lit deserts of truth, for the premature comforts of an acre, house, and barn? Truth also has its roof, and bed, and board. Make yourself necessary to the world, and mankind will give you bread, and if not store of it, yet such as shall not take away your property in all men's possessions, in all men's affections, in art, in nature, and in . .

Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes about truth
#4528 Ralph Waldo Emerson

All our progress is an unfolding, like the vegetable bud. You have first an instinct, then an opinion, then a knowledge, as the plant has root, bud, and fruit. Trust the instinct to the end, though you can render no reason. It is vain to hurry it. By trusting it to the end it shall ripen into truth, and you shall know why you believe. .

Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes about truth
#4540 Ralph Waldo Emerson

When the voice of a prophet out of the deeps of antiquity merely echoes to him a sentiment of his infancy, a prayer of his youth, he then pierces to the truth through all the confusion of tradition and the caricature of institutions. Rare, extravagant spirits come by us at intervals, who disclose to us new facts in nature. I see that men of God have, from time to time, walked among men and made their commission felt in the heart and soul of the commonest hearer. .

Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes about truth
#4571 Ralph Waldo Emerson

Henceforward I am the truth's. Be it known unto you that henceforward I obey no law less than the eternal law. I will have no covenants but proximities. .

Every violation of truth is not only a sort of suicide in the liar, but is a stab at the health of human society. .

Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes about truth

Whatever games are played with us, we must play no games with ourselves, but deal in our privacy with the last honesty and truth. .

Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes about truth
#4709 Ralph Waldo Emerson

The highest compact we can make with our fellow, is, — "Let there be truth between us two forevermore". .

Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes about truth
