Love truth, but pardon error.
      - Voltaire (Francois Marie Arouet Voltaire)

O Truth! pure and sacred virgin, when wilt thou be worthily revered? O Goddess, who instructs us, why didst thou put thy palace in a well?
      - Voltaire (Francois Marie Arouet Voltaire)

There are truths which are not for all men, nor for all times.
      - Voltaire (Francois Marie Arouet Voltaire),
        Letter to Cardinal de Bernis

There is nothing so powerful as truth; and often nothing so strange.
      - Daniel Webster,
        Arguments on the Murder of Captain White
         (vol. VI, p. 68)

I have ever thought
  Nature doth nothing so great for great men,
    As when she's pleas'd to make them lords of truth.
      Integrity of life is fame's best friend,
        Which nobly, beyond death, shall crown the end.
      - John Webster, The Duchess of Malfi
         (act V, sc. 5)

Not in books only, nor yet in oral discourse, but often also in words there are boundless stores of moral and historic truth, and no less of passion and imagination laid up, from which lessons of infinite worth may be derived.
      - Archbishop Richard Whately

There is no right faith in believing what is true, unless we believe it because it is true.
      - Archbishop Richard Whately

It is one thing to wish to have truth on our side, and another to wish sincerely to be on the side of truth.

        Essay on some of the Difficulties in the Writings of the Apostle Paul

Whatever satisfies the soul is truth.
      - Walt Whitman

Truth is one;
  And, in all lands beneath the sun,
    Whoso hath eyes to see may see
      The tokens of its unity.
      - John Greenleaf Whittier

Truth should be the first lesson of the child and the last aspiration of manhood; for it has been well said that the inquiry of truth, which is the love-making of it, the knowledge of truth, which is the presence of it, and the belief of truth, which is the enjoying of it, is the sovereign good of human nature.
      - John Greenleaf Whittier

If one tells the truth, one is sure sooner or later to be found out.
      - Oscar Wilde (Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde)

Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth.
      - Oscar Wilde (Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde)

The pure and simple truth is rarely pure and never simple.
      - Oscar Wilde (Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde)

Truth, in matters of religion, is simply the opinion that has survived.
      - Oscar Wilde (Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde)

The smallest pebble in the well of truth has its peculiar meaning, and will stand when man's best monuments have passed away.
      - Nathaniel Parker Willis

The sages say, Dame Truth delights to dwell
  (Strange Mansion!) in the bottom of a well:
    Questions are then the Windlass and the rope
      That pull the grave old Gentlewoman up.
      - Dr. John Wolcot (Wolcott or Woolcott) (used pseudonym Peter Pindar),
        Birthday Ode

Truth takes no account of centuries.
      - William Wordsworth

Truths that wake
  To perish never.
      - William Wordsworth,
        Ode--Intimations of Immortality (st. 9)

The truth is more important than the facts.
      - Frank Lloyd Wright

If we worked on the assumption that what is accepted as true really is true, then there would be little hope for advance.
      - Orville Wright

God's word lasts forever.
      - Ulrich von Wurttemberg

Seek truth from facts.
      - Deng Xiaoping

Truth never was indebted to a lie.
