Jiddu Krishnamurti

Truth cannot be brought down; rather, the individual must make the effort to ascend to it. You cannot bring the mountaintop to the valley. If you would attain to the mountaintop, you must pass through the valley, climb the steeps, unafraid of the dangerous precipices.

If men possessed wisdom, which stands in the same relation to the form of man as the sight to the eye, they would not cause any injury to themselves or to others; for the knowledge of truth removes hatred and quarrels, and prevents mutual injuries.

Maimonides

Myth and fairy-story must, as all art, reflect and contain in solution elements of moral and religious truth (or error), but not explicit, not in the known form of the primary ‘real’ world.

J. R. R. Tolkien

That’s another hallmark of truth, is that it snaps things together. People write to me all the time and say it’s as if things were coming together in my mind. It’s like the Platonic idea that all learning was remembering. You have a nature, and when you feel that nature articulated, it’s it’s like the act of snapping the puzzle pieces together.

Jordan Peterson

Part of the reason there’s an injunction to the truth, for example, is that if you’re in a circumstance of extreme uncertainty, your best weapon, let’s say, or your best tool or your best defense is the truth, because it keeps things simpler.

Jordan Peterson

Adopt responsibility for your own well-being, try to put your family together, try to serve your community, try to seek for eternal truth… That’s the sort of thing that can ground you in your life, enough so that you can withstand the difficulty of life.

Jordan Peterson

We’re so immaturely cynical as a culture. We’re not wise enough to look at an institution like marriage and to really things about what it means and what it signifies. It signifies a place where people can tie the ropes of their lives together so that they’re stronger. It signifies a place where people can tell the truth to one another.

Jordan Peterson

The Lord gave me ‘Sojourner,’ because I was to travel up an’ down the land, showin’ the people their sins an’ bein’ a sign unto them. Afterwards, I told the Lord I wanted another name ’cause everybody else had two names, and the Lord gave me ‘Truth,’ because I was to declare the truth to people.

Sojourner Truth

Falsehood is easy, truth so difficult.

George Eliot

Truth has rough flavours if we bite it through.

George Eliot

I was sure I’d set the world on fire, and it was hard for a young feller like me to realize the truth – that I hadn’t set the world on fire, and I was totally unprepared to handle the consequences if ‘The Big Trail’ had been a success and launched me as a star.

Francis Bacon

Science is but an image of the truth.

Francis Bacon

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

Francis Bacon

Sex is full of lies. The body tries to tell the truth. But, it’s usually too battered with rules to be heard, and bound with pretenses so it can hardly move. We cripple ourselves with lies.

Jim Morrison

It is one of the severest tests of friendship to tell your friend his faults. So to love a man that you cannot bear to see a stain upon him, and to speak painful truth through loving words, that is friendship.

Henry Ward Beecher

Not that I regret saying what I believed to be the truth, but I regret anything that I might have written or spoken that could have been used in a way to help to foster that atmosphere out of which came the loss of life of Brother Malcolm.

Joyce Meyer

The truth is God created us to have relationship with us. He wants to love us and take care of us, and He wants us to love Him. That’s where our walk with Christ has to start.

Joyce Meyer

I was in my late thirties when my eyes were opened to truth in God’s Word that showed me I wasn’t living the abundant life Jesus died for me to have. I had a very negative mindset and was miserable most of the time because of the abuse I had experienced throughout my childhood.

Joyce Meyer

Because my dad abused me, I was determined to never let a man tell me what to do. God clearly showed me that I needed to be a submissive wife if I wanted to be effective in ministry. The truth is, if we don’t learn to submit to authority, we won’t ever learn to submit to God.

Joyce Meyer

If you want to become fully mature in the Lord, you must learn to love truth. Otherwise, you will always leave open a door of deception for the enemy to take what is meant to be yours.

Joyce Meyer

Some people have a difficult time facing truth and reality. They prefer to live in a make-believe world, pretending that certain things aren’t happening.

Joyce Meyer

Sadly, the truth is, there aren’t many people who can be put in high positions who won’t start thinking highly of themselves.

Joyce Meyer

The great quest of life has always been to discover truth.

Joyce Meyer

The truth is, anyone can start projects. The world is full of just-started projects that looked great at the time but were never completed.

Prince

Truth, when not sought after, rarely comes to light.

What is Truth ?

In modern contexts truth is often defined as an idea of “truth to oneself” or authenticity. Truth is often defined as “truth to oneself” or “truth to oneself.”

Truth is usually considered to be contrary to falsehood, which can therefore suggest logical, factual or ethical significance as well. In many fields, including philosophy , literature, theology and research, the idea of reality is explored and debated.

The conception is used as a basis for many human activities and their nature as a concept is not discussed, but most of them are in science, law, journalism and everyday life.

Many thinkers consider the concept of truth as universal and can not be clarified in any words easier to grasp than the concept of truth itself. To some, truth is seen as the correspondence between language and an independent reality, sometimes known as the theory of correspondence.

Different truth theories and views among scientists, philosophers and theologians continue to be debated. Language is a means by which people transmit knowledge.

A criterion of truth is the method used to establish whether something is truth. Various positions exist on issues such as the truth: what is the truthful that truth bears; how can truth be defined, identified, and distinguished; what roles do the truth and the empirical knowledge play; and whether or not truth can be subjective (i.e., relative truth vs. absolute truth)
