Truth is a very different thing from fact; it is the loving contact of the soul with spiritual fact, vital and potent. It does not work in the soul independently of all faculty or qualification there for setting it forth or defending it. Truth in the inward parts is a power, not an opinion.
      - George MacDonald

But there is no veil like light--no adamantine armor against hurt like the truth.
      - George MacDonald, The Marquis of Lossie
         (ch. LXXI)

The advent of truth, like the dawn of day, agitates the elements, while it disperses the gloom.
      - Elias L. Magoon

You must accept the truth from whatever source it comes.
      - Maimonides

The greatest truths are commonly the simplest.
      - Chretien Guillaume Malesherbes

Bodies are cleansed by water; the mind is purified by truth.
      - Horace Mann

Scientific truth is marvellous, but moral truth is divine; and whoever breathes its air and walks by its light has found the lost paradise.
      - Horace Mann

You need not tell all the truth, unless to those who have a right to know it; but let all you tell be truth.
      - Horace Mann

A harmful truth is better than a useful lie.
      - Thomas Mann

Exactitude is not truth.
  [Fr., L'exactitude n'est pas la verite.]
      - Henri Matisse

Truth is the daughter of Time.
      - Giuseppe Mazzini

Truth, when not sought after, sometimes comes to light.
      - Menander, Ex Verberata (p. 160)

The way of truth is like a great road. It is not difficult to know it. The evil is only that men will not seek it. Do you go home and search for it.
      - Mencius

Truth uttered before its time is always dangerous.
      - Mencius

Truth would quickly cease to become stranger than fiction, once we got as used to it.
      - Henry Louis Mencken

The dictum that truth always triumphs over persecution is one of those pleasant falsehoods which men repeat after one another till they pass into commonplaces, but which all experience refutes.
      - John Stuart Mill

But God himself is truth; in propagating which, as men display a greater integrity and zeal, they approach nearer to the similitude of God, and possess a greater portion of his love.
      - John Milton

For who knows not that truth is strong, next to the Almighty; she needs no politics, nor stratagems, nor licensings to make her victorious; those are the shifts and the defenses that error uses against her power: give her but room, and do not bind her when she sleeps.
      - John Milton

The very essence of truth is plainness and brightness; the darkness and crookedness is our own. The wisdom of God created understanding, fit and proportionable to truth, the object and end of it, as the eye to the thing visible. If our understanding have a film of ignorance over it, or be blear with gazing on other false glitterings, what is that to truth?
      - John Milton

Though all the winds of doctrine were let loose to play upon the earth, so truth be in the field, we do injuriously by licensing and prohibiting to misdoubt her strength. Let her and falsehood grapple; who ever knew truth put to the worse, in a free and open encounter? Her confuting is the best and surest suppressing.
      - John Milton

Thy actions to thy words accord; thy words
  To thy large heart give utterance due; thy heart;
    Contains of good, wise, just, the perfect shape.
      - John Milton

Who ever knew truth put to the worse in a free and open encounter?
      - John Milton, Areopagitica

Truth is as impossible to be soiled by any outward touch as the sunbeam.
      - John Milton,
        Doctrine and Disciples of Divorce

Ev'n them who kept thy truth so pure of old,
  When all our fathers worshipp'd stocks and stones,
    Forget not.
      - John Milton,
        On the Late Massacre in Piedmont

Truth will ever be unpalatable to those who are determined not to relinquish error.
      - Edward Wortley Montagu
