He who seeks truth must be content with a lonely, little-trodden path. If he cannot worship her till she has been canonized by the shouts of the multitude, he must take his place with the members of that wretched crowd who shouted for two long hours. "Great is Diana of the Ephesians!" till truth, reason and calmness were all drowned in noise.
      - Frederick William Robertson

There is an inward state of the heart which makes truth credible the moment it is stated. It is credible to some men because of what they are. Love is credible to a loving heart; purity is credible to a pure mind; life is credible to a spirit in which life beats strongly--it is incredible to other men.
      - Frederick William Robertson

A remark generally hurts in proportion to its truth.
      - Will Rogers

Truth is always served by great minds, even if they fight it.
      - Jean Rostand

Abstract truth is the eye of reason.
      - Jean-Jacques Rousseau

General abstract truth is the most precious of all blessings; without it, man is blind; it is the eye of reason.
      - Jean-Jacques Rousseau

Sacrifice life to truth.
      - Jean-Jacques Rousseau

Childhood often holds a truth with its feeble finger, which the grasp of manhood cannot retain,--which it is the pride of utmost age to recover.
      - John Ruskin

He that has truth in his heart need never fear the want of persuasion on his tongue.
      - John Ruskin

If thou art wise, incline to truth; for truth, not the semblance, remains in its place.
      - Moslih Eddin (Muslih-un-Din) Saadi (Sadi)

If I had a device, it would be the true, the true only, leaving the beautiful and the good to settle matters afterwards as best they could.
      - Charles Augustin Sainte-Beuve

What is new is not always true, and what is true is not always new.
      - William Walters Sargant

Each truth sparkles with a light of its own, yet it always reflects some light upon another; a truth, while lighting another, springs from one, in order to penetrate another. The first truth is an abundant sense, from which all others are colored, and each particular truth, in its turn, resembles a great river that divides into an infinite number of rivulets.
      - Johann Jakob Scheuchzer

Truth is more than a dream and a song.
      - Johann Christoph Friedrich von Schiller

Truth warns of threatening crimes,
  Malice speaks of those which were committed.
    [Ger., Die Treue warnt vor drohenden Verbrechen,
      Die Rachgier spricht von den begangenen.]
      - Johann Christoph Friedrich von Schiller,
        Don Carlos (III, 4, 124)

All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.
      - Arthur Schopenhauer

Knowing all truth is less than doing a little bit of good.
      - Albert Schweitzer

There are few persons to whom truth is not a sort of insult.
      - Joseph Alexandre Pierre, Vicomte de Segur

The expression of truth is simplicity.
      - Seneca (Lucius Annaeus Seneca)

Truth will never be tedious unto him that travelleth in the secrets of nature; there is nothing but falsehood that glutteth us.
      - Seneca (Lucius Annaeus Seneca)

Truth lies wrapped up and hidden in the depths.
  [Lat., Involuta veritas in alto latet.]
      - Seneca (Lucius Annaeus Seneca),
        De Beneficiis (VII, 1)

Time discovers truth.
  [Lat., Veritatem dies aperit.]
      - Seneca (Lucius Annaeus Seneca), De Ira
         (II, 22)

The language of truth is simple.
  [Lat., Veritatis simplex oratio est.]
      - Seneca (Lucius Annaeus Seneca),
        Epistoloe Ad Lucilium (XLIX)

Truth hates delays.
  [Lat., Veritas odit moras.]
      - Seneca (Lucius Annaeus Seneca), Oedipus

In all nations truth is the most sublime, the most simple, the most difficult, and yet the most natural thing.
      - Marquise de Sevigne, Marie de Rabutin-Chantal
