The wine-cup is the little silver well, Where truth, if truth there be, doth dwell.

William Shakespeare

Poetry is the art of uniting pleasure with truth.

Samuel Johnson

Men who would face torture without a word become blasphemous at the short fourteenth. It is clear that the game of golf may well be included in that category of intolerable provocations which may legally excuse or mitigate behaviour not otherwise excusable.

A.P. Herbert

Any acceptance of authority is the very denial of truth.

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

Truth is within ourselves.

Robert Browning

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.

Thomas Hartwell Horne

I always divide people into two groups. Those who live by what they know to be a lie, and those who live by what they believe, falsely, to be the truth.

Christopher Hampton

It is not he that reads most, but he that meditates most on Divine truth, that will prove the choicest, wisest, strongest Christian.

Joseph Hall

Seek truth in meditation, not in moldy books. Look in the sky to find the moon, not in the pond
