Truth Quotes

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.

James Freeman Clarke

Spanish proverb
