Believe those who are seeking the truth.
Doubt those who find it.
There is only one truth, steadfast, healing, salutary, and that is the absurd.
You can only find Truth with logic, if you have already found Truth without it.
I respect faith, but doubt is what gets you an education.
Most of the change we think we see in life is due to truths being in and out of favor.
That which can be conveyed in words is merely a relative conception; although names and concepts have been applied to it, the subtle truth is indescribable.
All truth passes through three stages.
First, it is ridiculed.
Second, it is violently opposed.
Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.
Whoever undertakes to set himself up as a judge of Truth and Knowledge is shipwrecked by the laughter of the gods.
Only the hand that erases can write the true thing.
Everything is dual;
everything has poles;
everything has its pair of opposites;
like and unlike are the same;
opposites are identical in nature,
but different in degree;
all truths are but half-truths;
all paradoxes may be reconciled.
As a general rule, no one believes what others may tell him — no matter how apparent the truth. Only those truths which are wrought out individually in the crucible of experience really penetrate into the living consciousness and bear fruit.
There are no whole truths;
all truths are half-truths.
It is trying to treat them as whole truths
that plays the devil.
In refusing to accept the truth for what it is we deny the power contained within it.
The opposite of an ordinary fact is a lie. But the opposite of one profound truth may be another profound truth.
I believe that truth has only one face: that of a violent contradiction.
What the imagination seizes as beauty must be truth.
Meaning is not in things but in between; in the iridescence; in the interplay; in the interconnections; at the intersection.
Our lives are based on what is reasonable and common sense; truth is apt to be neither.
When I tell any truth it is not for the sake of convincing those who do not know it, but for the sake of defending those who do.
Speak the truth, but leave immediately after.
There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics.
Oh, the tangled webs we weave when we practice to deceive.
Truth never dies, but lives a wretched life.
If you can not find the truth right where you are, where else do you expect to find it?
The least initial deviation from the truth is multiplied later a thousandfold.
Nothing is true or untrue ... only more or less effective.
Anything more than the truth would be too much.
Losing an illusion makes you wiser than finding a truth.
I never give them hell. I just tell the truth, and they think it is hell.
No man can reveal to you aught but that which lies half asleep in the dawning of your knowledge.
The Great Way is not difficult;
It only avoids picking and choosing.
When love and hate are both absent,
Everything becomes clear and undisguised.
Make the slightest distinction, however,
And heaven and earth are set infinitely apart.
If you wish to see the truth,
Then hold no opinions for or against anything.
To set up what you like against what you dislike
Is a disease of the mind...
Silence is the medium through which we may perceive the depth of truth.
