"It was as true", said Mr. Barkus, "as taxes is. And nothing is truer than them."
Many people would be more truthful were it not for their uncontrollable desire to talk.
No one means all he says and yet very few say all they mean.
Pure truth, like pure gold, has been found unfit for circulation because men have discovered that it is far more convenient to adulterate the truth than to refine themselves.
The truth is cruel, but it can be loved and it makes free those who have loved it.
There are no whole truths. All truths are half-truths. It is trying to treat them as whole truths that plays the devil.
Too much truth Is uncouth.
Truth is a child of Time
Time trieth truth.
Truth always lags last, limping along on the arm of Time.
Truth exists. Only lies are invented.
Truth never dies but lives a wretched life.
What a myth never contains is the critical power to separate its truth from its errors.
The man who speaks the truth is always at ease.
Every man has a right to utter what he thinks is truth, and every other man has a right to knock him down for it.
Don't be consistent, but be simply true.
It makes all the difference in the world whether we put truth in the first place, or in the second place.
Rough work, iconoclasm, but the only way to get at the truth.
When one has no design but to speak plain truth, he may say a great deal in a very narrow compass.
One can live in this world on soothsaying but not on truth saying.
