Jalal ad-Din Rumi

Sincere forgiveness isn't colored with expectations that the other person apologize or change. Don't worry whether or not they finally understand you. Love them and release them. Life feeds back truth to people in its own way and time

Sara Paddison

We can always get along better by reason and love of truth than by worry of conscience and remorse. Harmful are these, and evil.

Baruch Spinoza

When we discover that the truth is already in us, we are all at once our original selves.

Dogen

I do not know what I may appear to the world; but to myself I seem to have been only like a boy playing on the seashore, and diverting myself in now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me.

Isaac Newton

Yet it is in our idleness, in our dreams, that the submerged truth sometimes comes to the top.

Ideas are, in truth, forces. Infinite, too,is the power of personality. A union of the two always makes history.

Henry James, Jr.

Personality is only ripe when a man has made the truth his own.

Soren Kierkegaard

Self is ingenious, crooked, and, governed by subtle and snaky desire, admits of endless turnings and qualifications, and the deluded worshippers of self vainly imagine that they can gratify every worldly desire, and at the same time possess the Truth

James Allen

The explanation of the propensity of the English people to portrait painting is to be found in their relish for a Fact. Let a man do the grandest things, fight the greatest battles, or be distinguished by the most brilliant personal heroism, yet the English people would prefer his portrait to a painting of the great deed. The likeness they can judge of; his existence is a Fact. But the truth of the picture of his deeds they cannot judge of, for they have no imagination.

Benjamin Haydon

Thomas More

It is natural for man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren till she transforms us into beasts... For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth, to know the worst, and to provide for it

Patrick Henry

When Wine enters, out goes the Truth

Benjamin Franklin

Champagne, if you are seeking the truth, is better than a lie detector. It encourages a man to be expansive, even reckless, while lie detectors are only a challenge to tell lies successfully.
