Though I can make my extravaganzas appear credible, I cannot make the truth appear so.
      - George Bernard Shaw

All great truths begin as blasphemies.
      - George Bernard Shaw, Annajanska

Do you think that the things people make fools of themselves about are any less real and true than the things they behave sensibly about? They are more true;: they are the only things that are true.
      - George Bernard Shaw, Candida

My way of joking is to tell the truth. It is the funniest joke in the world.
      - George Bernard Shaw,
        John Bull's Other Island (act II)

As scarce as truth is, the supply has always been in excess of the demand.
      - Henry Wheeler Shaw (used pseudonyms Josh Billings and Uncle Esek)

Truth is the edict of God.
      - Henry Wheeler Shaw (used pseudonyms Josh Billings and Uncle Esek)

The jealous keys of truth's eternal doors.
      - Percy Bysshe Shelley

He is an adorer of chaste truth,
  And speaks religiously of ev'ry man:
    He will not trust obscure traditions,
      Or faith implicit, but concludes of things
        Within his own clear knowledge: what he says
          You may believe, and pawn your soul upon 't.
      - James Shirley

Truth is the ground of science, the centre wherein all things repose, and is the type of eternity.
      - Sir Philip Sidney (Sydney)

Weigh not so much what men say, as what they prove; remembering that truth is simple and naked, and needs not invective to apparel her comeliness.
      - Sir Philip Sidney (Sydney)

How awful to reflect that what people say of us is true.
      - Logan Pearsall Smith

Truth is always straightforward.
      - Sophocles

Search for the truth is the noblest occupation of man; its publication, a duty.
      - Madame de Stael (Baronne Anne Louise Germaine de Stael-Holstein)

Truth and, by consequence, liberty, will always be the chief power of honest men.
      - Madame de Stael (Baronne Anne Louise Germaine de Stael-Holstein),
        Coppet et Weimar--Letter to General Moreau

When the truth offends no one it should come from our lips as naturally as the air we breathe.
      - Leszczynski Stanislaus ("Stanislaus I")

We must never throw away a bushel of truth because it happens to contain a few grains of chaff.
      - Dean Arthur Penrhyn Stanley

The truth cannot be asserted without denouncing the falsehood.
      - Sir Leslie Stephen

An unproductive truth is none. But there are products which cannot be weighed even in patent scales, nor brought to market.
      - John Sterling

Knowledge, or more expressively truth,--for knowledge is truth received into our intelligence,--truth is an ideal whole.
      - John Sterling

Endless is the search of truth.
      - Laurence Sterne

Perhaps the truth depends on a walk around the lake.
      - Wallace Stevens

Truth in spirit, not truth to the letter, is the true veracity.
      - Robert Louis Stevenson

The truth wears longer than all the gods; for it is only in the truth's service, and for love of it, that people have overthrown the gods and at last God himself. "The truth" outlasts the downfall of the world of gods, for it is the immortal soul of this transitory world of gods; it is Deity itself.
      - Max Stirner

Just as soon as any conviction of important truth becomes central and vital, there comes the desire to utter it--a desire which is immediate and irresistible. Sacrifice is gladness, service is joy, when such an idea becomes a commanding power.
      - Richard Salter Storrs

Nagging is the repetition of unpalatable truths.
      - Edith Summerskill, in a speech
