There's a world of difference between truth and facts. Facts can obscure truth.
- Maya Angelou
The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.
The truth is not for all men, but only for those who seek it.
- Ayn Rand
True wisdom is less presuming than folly. The wise man doubteth often, and changeth his mind; the fool is obstinate, and doubteth not; he knoweth all things but his own ignorance… To be satisfied with a little, is the greatest wisdom; and he that increaseth his riches, increaseth his cares; but a contented mind is a hidden treasure, and trouble findeth it not.
The truth is a snare: you cannot have it, without being caught. You cannot have the truth in such a way that you catch it, but only in such a way that it catches you.
- Søren Kierkegaard
If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything.
- Mark Twain
Whatever satisfies the soul is truth.
- Walt Whitman
Truth is like the sun. You can shut it out for a time, but it ain't goin' away.
- Elvis Presley
Truth never damages a cause that is just.
- Mahatma Gandhi
A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.
- Winston S. Churchill
