Truth is truth To the end of reckoning.
What makes a good follower The single most important characteristic may well be a willingness to tell the truth. In a world of growing complexity leaders are increasingly dependent on their subordinates for good information, whether the leaders want to hear it or not. Followers who tell the truth and leaders who listen to it are an unbeatable combination.
Truth will always be truth, regardless of lack of understanding, disbelief or ignorance.
Perhaps the mission of those who love mankind is to make people laugh at the truth, to make truth laugh, because the only truth lies in learning to free ourselves from insane passion for the truth.
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.
It is error alone which needs the support of government. Truth can stand by itself.
Only enemies speak the truth; friends and lovers lie endlessly, caught in the web of duty.
Any great truth can — and eventually will — be expressed as a cliche — a cliche is a sure and certain way to dilute an idea. For instance, my grandmother used to say, ‘The black cat is always the last one off the fence.’ I have no idea what she meant, but at one time, it was undoubtedly true.
I tore myself away from the safe comfort of certainties through my love for the truth and truth rewarded me.
The truth is that all of us can attain the greatest success and happiness possible in this life whenever we use our native capacities to its greatest extent.
Comedy has to be based on truth. You take the truth and you put a little curlicue at the end.
