Truth Quotes

For what we call illusions are often, in truth, a wider vision of past and present realities --a willing movement of a man's soul with the larger sweep of the world's forces --a movement towards a more assured end than the chances of a single life.

Joseph Conrad

I don't wish her any ill will. I think it's very hard for everyone to participate in the illusion she presents as her truth

Rosie O'Donnell

Romantic love is an illusion. Most of us discover this truth at the end of a love affair or else when the sweet emotions of love lead us into marriage and then turn down their flames

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

Jiddu Krishnamurti

There is no truth but untruth. There is no reason but unreason.

Edmund Cooper

Poetry is not the proper antithesis to prose, but to science. Poetry is opposed to science, and prose to metre. The proper and immediate object of science is the acquirement, or communication, of truth; the proper and immediate object of poetry is the communication of immediate pleasure.

Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Truths are too often considered as so true, that they lose all the power of truth, and lie bed-ridden in the dormitory of the soul, side by side with the most despised and exploded errors.

Samuel Taylor Coleridge

There is one great truth on this planet: whoever you are, or whatever it is that you do, when you really want something, it's because that desire originated in the soul of the universe.... The soul of the world is nourished by people's happiness.

Paulo Coelho

Progress, in the sense of acquisition, is something; but progress in the sense of being, is a great deal more. To grow higher, deeper, wider, as the years go on; to conquer difficulties, and acquire more and more power; to feel all one's faculties unfolding, and truth descending into the soul, this makes life worth living.

James Freeman Clarke

Hate your enemies Save your friends Find your place Speak the truth.

Kurt Donald Cobain

Meditation is that exercise of the mind by which it recalls a known truth,--as some kinds of creatures do their food; to be ruminated upon.
