thought this deserved a topic...I love 'em and ran across a bunch today about TRUTH

"As scarce as truth is, the supply has always been in excess of the demand."
~Josh Billings


We are indeed approaching, if we haven´t already arrived at, the time of Universal Deceit. We have the situation today when even the people who think they are opposing tyranny and lies are perpetuating the whole edifice of lies that tyranny is being built on.

There is nothing sadder than those who cannot see that what they perceive to be ´good intentions´ are the paving stones that create the road to Hell itself
~George Orwell


Unthinking respect for authority is the greatest enemy of truth.
Albert Einstein


The lies the government and media tell are amplifications of the lies we tell ourselves. To stop being conned, stop conning yourself.
James Wolcott


Political language ... is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind.
George Orwell


The first casualty when war comes is the truth.
Sen. Hiram Johnson


"Most people, sometime in their lives, stumble across truth. Most jump up, brush themselves off, and hurry on about their business as if nothing had happened."
Winston Churchill


"It is not the possession of truth, but the success which attends the seeking after it, that enriches the seeker and brings happiness to him."
Max Planck


"It´s not a matter of what is true that counts but a matter of what is perceived to be true."

Thus spoke the ultimate liar - Henry Kissinger


"Doubt everything I tell you until you discover for yourself why it is true"
Buddha


Phony pretexts repeated often enough become real reasons. Things that...are not true become true in the public mind simply through endless repetition.
Lenny Bloom


It is dangerous to be right when the government is wrong.
~Voltaire
