#3. There is only one truth. There cannot be two truths. It's hard to live with no truth, with scraps of truth, with a half-truth. A partial truth is no truth at all.

Only One Truth quotes by Patrick Rothfuss
#4. There can be many opinions on a thing, but there is only one truth."

Only One Truth quotes by Marion Zimmer Bradley
#6. It had to do with the knowledge that the world was as it was because of what men believed it was ... year by year, these past three or four generations, the minds of men had been hardened to believing that there was one God, one world, one way of describing reality, and that all things which intruded on the realm of that great one-ness must be evil and of the fiends, and that the sound of the bells and the shadow of their holy places would keep the evil afar. And as more and more people believed this, it was so, and Avalon no more than a dream adrift in an almost inaccessible other world #Quote by Marion Zimmer Bradley
Only One Truth quotes by Gosho Aoyama
#7. There's no win or lose, nor higher or lower. Because there's only one truth. #Quote by Gosho Aoyama

#10. Know this, there is only one truth left to me." His trembling fingertips caressed her jaw. "That I love you." He said it again, his voice broken, his arms pulling her tightly against him. "I love you. The rest is darkness."
Her fingers curled around the smooth swells of his biceps. "Then let me be your light. #Quote by Kristen Callihan
Only One Truth quotes by Sarah Dessen
#11. Forever was so many different things. It was always changing, it was what everything was really about ... I wished it would last and last. But there was only one truth about forever that really mattered, that was this: it was happening. Right then ... and every moment afterwards. #Quote by Sarah Dessen
Only One Truth quotes by Sri Chinmoy
#12. Meditation tells you only one thing: God is. Meditation reveals to you only one truth: yours is the vision of God. #Quote by Sri Chinmoy
Only One Truth quotes by Jose Eduardo Agualusa
#13. In your novels do you lie deliberately or just out of ignorance?"
Laughter. A murmur of approval. The writer hesitated a few seconds. Then counter-attacked:
"I'm a liar by vocation," he shouted. "I lie with joy! Literature is the only chance for a true liar to attain any sort of social acceptance."
Then more soberly, he added - his voice lowered - that the principal difference between a dictatorship and a democracy is that in the former there exists only one truth, the truth as imposed by power, while in free countries every man has the right to defend his own version of events.
Truth, he said, is a superstition. #Quote by Jose Eduardo Agualusa
Only One Truth quotes by Steven Erikson
#14. Evil speaks in lies.
And the good know only one truth. But it's a lie, because there's always more than one truth #Quote by Steven Erikson
Only One Truth quotes by Reza Aslan
#15. One could argue that the clash of monotheisms is the inevitable result of monotheism itself. Whereas a religion of many gods posits many myths to describe the human condition, a religion of one god tends to be monomythic; it not only rejects all other gods, it rejects all other explanations for God. If there is only one God, then there may be only one truth, and that can easily lead to bloody conflicts of irreconcilable absolutisms. #Quote by Reza Aslan
Only One Truth quotes by Hermann Hesse
#16. The truth has a million faces, but there is only one truth. #Quote by Hermann Hesse
Only One Truth quotes by Flannery O'Connor
#17. I preach there are all kinds of truth, your truth and somebody else's. But behind all of them there is only one truth and that is that there's no truth. #Quote by Flannery O'Connor
Only One Truth quotes by Edwin Hubbel Chapin
#18. The excellence and inspiration of truth is in the pursuit, not in the mere having of it. The pursuit of all truth is a kind of gymnastics; a man swings from one truth with higher strength to gain another. The continual glory is the possibility opening before us. #Quote by Edwin Hubbel Chapin
Only One Truth quotes by David Bentley Hart
#19. When one forgets the distinction between method and truth, one becomes foolishly prone to respond to any question that cannot be answered from the vantage of one's particular methodological perch by dismissing it as nonsensical, or by issuing a promissory note guaranteeing a solution to the problem at some juncture in the remote future, or by simply distorting the question into one that looks like the kind one really can answer after all. #Quote by David Bentley Hart
Only One Truth quotes by Ambrose Bierce
#20. INDECISION, n. The chief element of success; "for whereas," saith Sir Thomas Brewbold, "there is but one way to do nothing and divers way to do something, whereof, to a surety, only one is the right way, it followeth that he who from indecision standeth still hath not so many chances of going astray as he who pusheth forwards"
a most clear and satisfactory exposition on the matter.
"Your prompt decision to attack," said Genera Grant on a certain occasion to General Gordon Granger, "was admirable; you had but five minutes to make up your mind in."
"Yes, sir," answered the victorious subordinate, "it is a great thing to be know exactly what to do in an emergency. When in doubt whether to attack or retreat I never hesitate a moment
I toss us a copper."
"Do you mean to say that's what you did this time?"
"Yes, General; but for Heaven's sake don't reprimand me: I disobeyed the coin. #Quote by Ambrose Bierce
Only One Truth quotes by Kate Millett
#21. Prostitution is really the only crime in the penal law where two people are doing a thing mutually agreed upon and yet only one, the female partner, is subject to arrest. #Quote by Kate Millett
Only One Truth quotes by Jean Paul Friedrich Richter
#22. On the church vaulting above was the clock-face of eternity, void of number and serving as its own hand, only one black finger was pointing and the dead wanted to tell the time by it. #Quote by Jean Paul Friedrich Richter
Only One Truth quotes by Seth Dickinson
#23. Do not do her work for her. Do not build her up in your mind. She's only one woman. #Quote by Seth Dickinson
Only One Truth quotes by Arundhati Roy
#24. He could do only one thing at a time. If he held her, he couldn't kiss her. If he kissed her, he couldn't see her. If he saw her, he couldn't feel her. #Quote by Arundhati Roy
Only One Truth quotes by Nikos Kazantzakis
#25. Once more there sounded within me the terrible warning that there is only one life for all men, that there is only one life for all men, that there is no other and that all that can be enjoyed must be enjoyed here. In eternity no other chance will be given to us. #Quote by Nikos Kazantzakis
Only One Truth quotes by Doug Wilson
#26. Mace Brown calmly walked over, put his arm on Carlton's shoulder, and looked into his filthy, sweat-streaked face. 'Son, I want to tell you something my daddy told me a long time ago,' he drawled. 'If you hadn't wanted to work, you oughtn't have hired out.' The words struck Carlton like a foul tip off the face mask. It sounded like one of the most profound statements of truth and essence he had ever heard. #Quote by Doug Wilson
Only One Truth quotes by Thomas Friedman
#27. Watching both the health care and climate/energy debates in Congress, it is hard not to draw the following conclusion: There is only one thing worse than one-party autocracy, and that is one-party democracy, which is what we have in America today. One-party autocracy certainly has its drawbacks. But when it is led by a reasonably enlightened group of people, as China is today, it can also have great advantages. #Quote by Thomas Friedman
Only One Truth quotes by Steven Spielberg
#28. The only movie that I would ever even consider retrofitting is the first 'Jurassic Park,' which I think would look pretty spectacular in 3D. That's the only one of my films that I would consider doing in 3D. #Quote by Steven Spielberg
Only One Truth quotes by Lauren Slater
#29. Are psychiatric crises so overwhelming to the mind that they inhibit the presence of ethics? Is depression at root an amoral phenomenon, its focus on the self preventing any other from really counting? Perhaps. Sometimes. Sometimes, even when we are two we are really only one; we can feel nothing but our own bones, our own difficult breaths. #Quote by Lauren Slater
Only One Truth quotes by Roger E. Olson
#30. An irenic approach to expounding Christian beliefs is one that attempts always to understand opposing viewpoints before disagreeing, and when it is necessary to disagree does so respectfully and in love. An irenic approach to doctrine seeks common ground and values unity within diversity and diversity within unity. An irenic approach does not imply relativism or disregard for truth, but it does seek to live by the motto "in essentials unity, #Quote by Roger E. Olson
Only One Truth quotes by Lester Levenson
#31. When we take one step toward the Self, It takes nine steps towards us. #Quote by Lester Levenson
Only One Truth quotes by Thomas Paine
#32. But there is a truth that ought to be made known; I have had the opportunity of seeing it; which is, that notwithstanding appearances, there is not any description of men that despise monarchy so much as courtiers. But they well know, that if it were seen by others, as it is seen by them, the juggle could not be kept up; they are in the condition of men who get their living by a show, and to whom the folly of that show is so familiar that they ridicule it; but were the audience to be made as wise in this respect as themselves, there would be an end to the show and the profits with it. The difference between a republican and a courtier with respect to monarchy, is that the one opposes monarchy, believing it to be something; and the other laughs at it, knowing it to be nothing. #Quote by Thomas Paine
Only One Truth quotes by Benny Bellamacina
#33. If there are two straight sides to every story, they'll always be one lopsided truth. #Quote by Benny Bellamacina
Only One Truth quotes by Greg Bear
#34. In a world of fragile self-justification, the truth made no one happy. #Quote by Greg Bear
Only One Truth quotes by A.J. Compton
#35. Be the person you want people to one day say you were. And start now. Because the timeless truth remains that time is running out for all of us, ready or not. #Quote by A.J. Compton
Only One Truth quotes by Dew Platt
#36. It is easy sometimes to blame genetics, some obesity gene perhaps. But even if this were true, we'll still be referring to the machine. Genetics are predispositions. The body is designed as a closed system, physiologically speaking and unless acted upon by an outside or higher force it maintains its functions. It is designed to sustain its own survival. The psychological (self-ordinate command) is essential for this survival because the body also belongs to a self, one that can overfeed it, starve it or kill it as may be. It is also by material urges that you seek to acquire wealth and by self command, suppose what you consider a higher more fulfilling purpose that you choose to give it all away.
The hard core truth is that despite some obesity gene, you can starve yourself to death if you want, or perhaps if you feel you have an ulterior higher purpose like an anorexic might, to look thin and beautiful in the eyes of the communal. #Quote by Dew Platt
Only One Truth quotes by Emily Henry
#37. I know feeling small gets to some people, he had once told me, but I kine of like it takes the pressure off when you're just one life of six billion at any given moment. And when you're going through something hard - at the time, Mom was doing chemo - it's nice to know you're not even close to the only one. #Quote by Emily Henry
Only One Truth quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#38. There are two types of spirits; either light or darkness.
Only one spirit (either light or darkness) operates at a time.
Grace-divine gives power for spirit of light to exist as a sacred-self. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Only One Truth quotes by Douglas Coupland
#39. And in your new lives you'll have to live entirely for that one sensation-that of imminent truth. And you're going to have to holler for it, steal for it, beg for it-and you're never to stop asking questions about it twenty-four hours a day, the rest of your life. #Quote by Douglas Coupland
Only One Truth quotes by Julianna Baggott
#40. You want the greatest trick for writing a novel? Here it is: imagine urgently whispering your story into one person's ear - and only one. This one visualization will clarify every word choice you make. #Quote by Julianna Baggott
Only One Truth quotes by Yugi Yamada
#41. He looks kind, but he's really a huge sex fiend. He's perverted and spoiled and always jealous. And he hasn't called me for two weeks. But he's cool, isn't he? My guy. I'm the only one that knows...that the coolest part of him is his naked back. #Quote by Yugi Yamada
Only One Truth quotes by Frances Mayes
#42. I find that other countries have this or this, but Italy is the only one that has it all for me. The culture, the cuisine, the people, the landscape, the history. Just everything to me comes together there. #Quote by Frances Mayes
Only One Truth quotes by Peter Tieryas
#43. That a universe exists within every human being. That to the blood cells and organs in your body, you are god. That this universe is only one individual among infinite others. #Quote by Peter Tieryas
Only One Truth quotes by Ram Dass
#44. After one arrives at the summit, after going through the total transformation of being ... there is yet one more step to the completion of that journey: the return to the valley below, to the everyday world. Who it is that returns is not who began the climb in the first place. The being that comes back is quietness itself, is compassion and wisdom, is the truth of the ages. Whatever humble or elevated position that being holds within the community, he or she becomes a light for others on the way a statement of the freedom that comes from having touched the top of the mountain. #Quote by Ram Dass
Only One Truth quotes by Yuval Noah Harari
#45. The truth is that from about 2 million years ago until around 10,000 years ago, the world was home, at one and the same time, to several human species. And why not? #Quote by Yuval Noah Harari
Only One Truth quotes by Truman Capote
#46. Now listen to me, Buddy: there is only one unpardonable sin - deliberate cruelty. All else can be forgiven. That, never. #Quote by Truman Capote
Only One Truth quotes by Fredrik Backman
#47. One of the plainest truths about both towns and individuals is that they usually don't turn into what we tell them to be, but what they are told they are. #Quote by Fredrik Backman
Only One Truth quotes by Charlton Laird
#48. The truth seems to be that they [teachers of grammar] were victims of a mighty hoax, one of those true belly-rumbling impostures which a workaday world can but seldom afford. #Quote by Charlton Laird
Only One Truth quotes by Brian Andreas
#49. There really is only one story that you need to tell as a scientist or a technologist. It's Prometheus stealing fire. That's it. That's what we do as scientists or technologists. #Quote by Brian Andreas
Only One Truth quotes by Charlie N. Holmberg
#50. Don't be ridiculous," Mg. Aviosky assured her as Magicians Katter and Hughes studied Mg. Thane lying on the floor by the light of four candles. "The only one who can manipulate Emery Thane's future is Emery Thane himself. #Quote by Charlie N. Holmberg
Only One Truth quotes by Herbert M. Shelton
#51. One will starve to death with just as much certainty and much more speedily, if one attempts to live upon foods containing only one or two elements of nutrition, as if one were totally abstaining from food. A diet of white flour and water, or white sugar and water, will result in death much sooner than a diet of water only. If no food is eaten the body feeds upon its own food reserves, but it has no provision for meeting the exigencies created by prolonged subsistence on one-sided diets. #Quote by Herbert M. Shelton
Only One Truth quotes by Jack Nicklaus
#52. It takes hundreds of good golf shots to gain confidence, but only one bad one to lose it. #Quote by Jack Nicklaus
Only One Truth quotes by Michel Templet
#53. To speak only one language is to do yourself a great injustice. #Quote by Michel Templet
Only One Truth quotes by Leonard Cohen
#54. We sold ourselves for love but now we are free
I'm so sorry for that ghost I made you be
Only one of us was real and that was me #Quote by Leonard Cohen
Only One Truth quotes by Vladimir Nabokov
#55. And now, said Ada, Van is going to stop being vulgar - I
mean, stop forever! Because I had and have and shall always
have only one beau, only one beast, only one sorrow, only one joy. #Quote by Vladimir Nabokov
Only One Truth quotes by Joyce Carol Oates
#56. I am concerned with only one thing, the moral and social conditions of my generation. #Quote by Joyce Carol Oates
Only One Truth quotes by Xun Zi
#57. In order to properly understand the big picture, everyone should fear becoming mentally clouded and obsessed with one small section of truth. #Quote by Xun Zi
Only One Truth quotes by Pepper Winters
#58. Are you jealous of them looking? Doesn't it turn you on knowing you're the only one who gets to see what's under my suit? That you're the only one who holds this." Stealing my hand, he placed my fingers over his heart. He brushed his lips against my ear. "Because I get hard seeing the way men look at you, knowing you belong to me and only me. #Quote by Pepper Winters
Only One Truth quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#59. I saw that all who do not profess an identical faith with themselves are considered by the Orthodox to be heretics, just as the Catholics and others consider the Orthodox to be heretics. And i saw that the Orthodox (though they try to hide this) regard with hostility all who do not express their faith by the same external symbols and words as themselves; and this is naturally so; first, because the assertion that you are in falsehood and I am in truth, is the most cruel thing one man can say to another; and secondly, because a man loving his children and brothers cannot help being hostile to those who wish to pervert his children and brothers to a false belief. And that hostility is increased in proportion to one's greater knowledge of theology. And to me who considered that truth lay in union by love, it became self-evident that theology was itself destroying what it ought to produce. #Quote by Leo Tolstoy
Only One Truth quotes by William James
#60. I, therefore, for one, cannot see my way to accepting the agnostic rules for truth-seeking, or wilfully agree to keep my willing nature out of the game. I cannot do so for this plain reason, that a rule of thinking which would absolutely prevent me from acknowledging certain kinds of truth if those kinds of truth were really there, would be an irrational rule. #Quote by William James
Only One Truth quotes by Christina Patterson
#61. Her father was right. Her poems are powerful. They are not Sylvia Plath, but there was only one Sylvia Plath. 'The thing was,' said Frieda, 'if I'm lying on my death bed, who would I have pleased by not living how I need to live, in order to have a happy, or reasonable, or successful, or productive, or even a completely non-successful, but, you know, quite muddling-along-in-an-OK-fashion life? It's up to us how we get from A to B to C to D. I might never light up the sky. None of us might. It doesn't matter. What matters is: did you do the best you could with the tools you had at hand? #Quote by Christina Patterson
Only One Truth quotes by Jonathan Franzen
#62. He knows how love blinds people to the truth about the one they are in love with. #Quote by Jonathan Franzen
Only One Truth quotes by Hans Christian Andersen
#63. Then she saw a star fall, leaving behind it a bright streak of fire. "Someone is dying," thought the little girl, for her old grandmother, the only one who had ever loved her, and who was now dead, had told her that when a star falls, a soul was going up to God. #Quote by Hans Christian Andersen
Only One Truth quotes by Douglas Raybeck
#64. In a real sense, the important question is never one of validity or truth. Truth exists in the realm of mathematics and in the philosophy of logic, not in perceptions of reality. For those who would understand the world about them, the question is not one of truth, but of utility. Do our investigations deepen our understanding, further our ability to ask more refined questions, and lead to better predictions of events? If so, then the research is justified. If not, it remains but sophistry. #Quote by Douglas Raybeck
Only One Truth quotes by Sarah McBride
#65. We must never be a country that says there's only one way to love, only one way to look, and only one way to live. #Quote by Sarah McBride
Only One Truth quotes by Colson Whitehead
#66. As it often did when I thought about chicken wings and entropy, my mind turned to Emerson. "Life is a journey, not a destination." Now that was one stone-cold motherfucker who was not afraid to deliver the truth: After the torments of the journey, you have been well-prepared for the agonies of the destination. #Quote by Colson Whitehead
