Quotes about Truth 3

  • If it were true what in the end would be gained? Nothing but another truth. Is this such a mighty advantage? We have enough old truths still to digest, and even these we would be quite unable to endure if we did not sometimes flavor them with lies. --G. C. Lichtenberg
  • I preach there are all kinds of truth, your truth and somebody else's. But behind all of them there is only one truth and that is that there's no truth. --Flannery O'Connor
  • Nothing is poorer than a truth expressed as it was thought. Committed to writing in such cases, it is not even a bad photograph. . . . Truth wants to be startled abruptly, at one stroke, from her self-immersion, whether by uproar, music or cries for help. --Walter Benjamin
  • Man may aspire to virtue, but he cannot reasonably aspire to truth. --Sébastien-Roch Nicolas de Chamfort
  • Man can embody truth but he cannot know it. --William Butler Yeats
  • I'm plotting revolution against this lie that the majority has a monopoly of the truth. What are these truths that always bring the majority rallying round? Truths so elderly they are practically senile. And when a truth is as old as that, gentlemen, you can hardly tell it from a lie. --Henrik Ibsen
