Truth crushed to earth shall rise again:
  Th' eternal years of God are hers;
    But Error, wounded, writhes in pain,
      And dies among his worshippers.
      - William Cullen Bryant, The Battle Field
         (st. 9)

As it has been finely expressed, "Principle is a passion for truth." And as an earlier and homelier writer hath it, "The truths we believe in are the pillars of our world."
      - Edward George Earle Lytton Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

Truth makes on the ocean of nature no one track of light--every eye looking on finds its own.

        Caxtoniana (essay XIV)

Arm thyself for the truth!
      - Edward George Earle Lytton Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton,

Old truths are always new to us, if they come with the smell of heaven upon them.
      - John Bunyan

Falsehood and delusion are allowed in no case whatever; but, as in the exercise of all the virtues, there is an economy of truth. It is a sort of temperance, by which a man speaks truth with measure, that he may speak it the longer.
      - Edmund Burke

For truth is precious and divine;
  Too rich a pearl for carnal swine.
      - Samuel Butler (1), Hudibras

'Tis not antiquity, nor author,
  That makes truth truth, altho' time's daughter.
      - Samuel Butler (1), Hudibras
         (pt. II, canto III)

More proselytes and converts use t' accrue
  To false persuasions than the right and true;
    For error and mistake are infinite,
      But truth has but one way to be i' th' right.
      - Samuel Butler (1), Miscellaneous Thoughts
         (l. 113)

All high truth is poetry. Take the results of science: they glow with beauty, cold and hard as are the methods of reaching them.
      - Charles Buxton

Whenever you look at human nature in masses, you find every truth met by a counter truth, and both equally true.
      - Charles Buxton

All that I know is, that the facts I state
  Are true as truth has ever been of late.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron)

It is strange, but true; for truth is always strange, stranger than fiction.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron)

Truth is a gem that is found at a great depth; whilst on the surface of this world all things are weighed by the false scale of custom.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron)

No words suffice the secret soul to show,
  For Truth denies all eloquence to Woe.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron),
        Corsair (canto III, st. 22)

'Tis strange--but true; for truth is always strange,
  Stranger than fiction.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron),
        Don Juan (canto XIV, st. 101)

A taste for truth at any cost is a passion which spares nothing.
      - Albert Camus

Blessed be the God's voice; for it is true, and falsehoods have to cease before it!
      - Thomas Carlyle

The genuine essence of truth never dies.
      - Thomas Carlyle

The thing is not only to avoid error, but to attain immense masses of truth.
      - Thomas Carlyle

"Truth," I cried, "though the heavens crush me for following her; no falsehood, though a whole celestial Lubberland were the price of apostasy!"
      - Thomas Carlyle

A man protesting against error is on the way towards uniting himself with all men that believe in truth.
      - Thomas Carlyle, Heroes and Hero Worship

What I tell you three times is true.
      - Lewis Carroll (pseudonym of Charles L. Dodgson),
        The Hunting of the Snark

I have found out the art of deceiving diplomatists; I speak the truth, and I am certain they will not believe me.
      - Count Camillo Benso di Cavour

Truth may be stretched, but cannot be broken, and always gets above falsehood, as oil does above water.
      - Cervantes (Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra)
