Unintended Truth quotes by Eli Easton
#1. Tim had seen a documentary once about how certain carnivorous plants lure in food with tiny, fine, hair-like cilia, which wave and wave and gradually draw the speck of food - or fly as the case might be - down into their gullet. Talking to Lily Beaufort was like that. Her eyes were like information vacuums and her sympathetic little murmurs were like the tiny waving cilia hairs drawing out his life story with seductive ease.
And maybe Tim had been in need of someone to talk to, because he could not shut up. #Quote by Eli Easton
Unintended Truth quotes by Samuel Johnson
#2. Perhaps the excellence of aphorisms consists not so much in the expression of some rare or abstruse sentiment, as in the comprehension of some obvious and useful truth in a few words.
We frequently fall into error and folly, not because the true principles of action are not known, but because, for a time, they are not remembered; and he may therefore be justly numbered among the benefactors of mankind who contracts the great rules of life into short sentences, that may be easily impressed on the memory, and taught by frequent recollection to recur habitually to the mind. #Quote by Samuel Johnson
Unintended Truth quotes by Rene Girard
#3. The more one approaches madness, the more one equally approaches the truth, and if one does not fall into the former, one must end up necessarily in the latter. #Quote by Rene Girard
Unintended Truth quotes by Dean Jobb
#4. Nothing was as it seemed in Leo Koretz's make-believe world of mysterious syndicates and Panamanian oil fields. Accounts written long after his death added fresh layers of myth and distortion, but I was determined to learn the truth about a larger-than-life figure who rarely, if ever, told the truth. The real story of the man who pioneered and mastered the Ponzi scheme, is so gripping – and, at times, so incredible – that it needs no embellishment. And it's a story woven into the fabric of the corrupt politics and gang warfare that plagued Chicago in the 1920s. #Quote by Dean Jobb
Unintended Truth quotes by Jennifer Dion
#5. Son, you just asked me: how can someone show love over and over again when they're constantly rejected? Caleb, the answer is: you can't love her, because you can't give her what you don't have. I couldn't truly love your mother until I understood what love truly was. It's not because I get some reward out of it. I've now made a decision to love your mother whether she deserves it or not. Son, God loves you, even though you don't deserve it. Even though you've rejected Him. Spat in His face. God sent Jesus to die on the cross for your sin, because He loves you. The cross was offensive to me, until I came to it. But when I did, Jesus Christ changed my life. That's when I truly began to love your mom. Son, I can't settle this for you. This is between you and the Lord. But I love you too much not to tell you the truth. Can't you see that you need Him? Can't you see that you need His forgiveness? #Quote by Jennifer Dion
Unintended Truth quotes by Ron Johnson
#6. We need different perspectives here in Washington - someone who has private-sector experience, somebody who's actually created jobs, manufactures products, understands the incentives and disincentives, the intended and unintended consequences of legislation. #Quote by Ron Johnson
Unintended Truth quotes by Nick Denton
#7. We believe that the best Web content optimization strategy is something as old as journalism itself: the shocking truth and the authentic opinion. #Quote by Nick Denton
Unintended Truth quotes by Rene Descartes
#8. I am in doubt as to the propriety of making my first meditations in the place above mentioned matter of discourse; for these are so metaphysical, and so uncommon, as not, perhaps, to be acceptable to every one. And yet, that it may be determined whether the foundations that I have laid are sufficiently secure, I find myself in a measure constrained to advert to them. I had long before remarked that, in relation to practice, it is sometimes necessary to adopt, as if above doubt, opinions which we discern to be highly uncertain, as has been already said; but as I then desired to give my attention solely to the search after truth, I thought that a procedure exactly the opposite was called for, and that I ought to reject as absolutely false all opinions in regard to which I could suppose the least ground for doubt, in order to ascertain whether after that there remained aught in my belief that was wholly indubitable. Accordingly, seeing that our senses sometimes deceive us, I was willing to suppose that there existed nothing really such as they presented to us; and because some men err in reasoning, and fall into paralogisms, even on the simplest matters of geometry, I, convinced that I was as open to error as any other, rejected as false all the reasonings I had hitherto taken for demonstrations; and finally, when I considered that the very same thoughts (presentations) which we experience when awake may also be experienced when we are asleep, while there is at that time not one #Quote by Rene Descartes
Unintended Truth quotes by Khalil Gibran
#9. If your knowledge teaches you not the value of things, and frees you not from the bondage to matter, you shall never come near the throne of Truth. #Quote by Khalil Gibran
Unintended Truth quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
#10. The truth can be very funny in an awful way, especially as it relates to greed and hipocrisy. #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut
Unintended Truth quotes by James Anthony Froude
#11. Life is more than a theory, and love of truth butters no bread: old men who have had to struggle along their way, who know the endless bitterness, the grave moral deterioration which follow an empty exchequer, may well be pardoned for an over-wish to see their sons secured from it; hunger, at least, is a reality ... #Quote by James Anthony Froude
Unintended Truth quotes by Mariah Carey
#12. So when you feel like hope is gone,
look inside you and be strong,
and you'll finally see the truth -
that a hero lies in you. #Quote by Mariah Carey
Unintended Truth quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
#13. When we are young, Angela, we may fall victim to the misconception that time will heal all wounds and that eventually everything will shake itself out. But as we get older, we learn this sad truth: some things can never be fixed. Some mistakes can never be put right - not by the passage of time, and not by our most fervent wishes, either. In my experience, this is the hardest lesson of them all. #Quote by Elizabeth Gilbert
Unintended Truth quotes by Laszlo Krasznahorkai
#14. ...the task was not to choose but to accept, there being no obligation to choose between what was appropriate and what was inappropriate, only to accept that we are not obliged to do anything except to comprehend that the appropriateness of the one great universal process of thinking is not predicated on it being correct, for there was nothing to compare it with, nothing but its own beauty, and it was its beauty that gave us confidence in its truth - and this, said Korin, was what struck him as he walked those hundred furiously-thinking paces on the evening of his birthday: that is to say he understood the infinite significance of faith and was given a new insight into what the ancients had long known, that it was faith in its existence that had both created and maintained the world; the corollary of which was that it was the loss of his own faith that was now erasing it, the result of which realization being, he said, that he experienced a sudden, utterly numbing, quite awful feeling of abundance... #Quote by Laszlo Krasznahorkai
Unintended Truth quotes by Epictetus
#15. Thus Epicurus also, when he designs to destroy the natural fellowship of mankind, at the same time makes use of that which he destroys.

For what does he say? 'Be not deceived, men, nor be led astray, nor be mistaken: there is no natural fellowship among rational animals; believe me. But those who say otherwise, deceive you and seduce you by false reasons.' - What is this to you? Permit us to be deceived.

Will you fare worse, if all the rest of us are persuaded that there is a natural fellowship among us, and that it ought by all means to be preserved? Nay, it will be much better and safer for you.

Man, why do you trouble yourself about us? Why do you keep awake for us? Why do you light your lamp? Why do you rise early? Why do you write so many books, that no one of us may be deceived about the gods and believe that they take care of men; or that no one may suppose the nature of good to be other than pleasure?

For if this is so, lie down and sleep, and lead the life of a worm, of which you judged yourself worthy: eat and drink, and enjoy women, and ease yourself, and snore.

And what is it to you, how the rest shall think about these things, whether right or wrong? For what have we to do with you?

You take care of sheep because they supply us with wool and milk, and last of all with their flesh. Would it not be a desirable thing if men could be lulled and enchanted by the Stoics, and sleep and present themselves #Quote by Epictetus
Unintended Truth quotes by Beth Moore
#16. Beloved, whatever we are gripping to bring us satisfaction is a lie-unless it is Christ. He is the Truth that sets us free. If you are holding anything in your craving for satisfaction right now, would you be willing to acknowledge it as a lie? Even if you feel you can't let go of it right this moment, would you lift it before Him-perhaps literally lifting your fisted hand as a symbol-and confess it as an idol? God does not condemn you. He calls you. #Quote by Beth Moore
Unintended Truth quotes by Katie Kacvinsky
#17. It's easy to delete the truth when you live behind your own permanent censor. #Quote by Katie Kacvinsky
Unintended Truth quotes by Olivia Parker
#18. He did not blame them. Because in truth, that's what he did, what he was. Seduce and dominate. Charm and manipulate. A user of women. How they would scoff, Rothbury mused bitterly, if they knew that he was secretly in love with the silly little chit, spectacles and all. #Quote by Olivia Parker
Unintended Truth quotes by Robert J. Morgan
#19. The ultimate philosophical truth is this: Without Christ, all is vanity even when it's easy; with Him, all is well even when it's hard. #Quote by Robert J. Morgan
Unintended Truth quotes by Immanuel Kant
#20. Have patience awhile; slanders are not long-lived. Truth is the child of time; erelong she shall appear to vindicate thee. #Quote by Immanuel Kant
Unintended Truth quotes by Ilchi Lee
#21. Experiencing brightness in meditation is not a one-time experience; it is something you continue to develop throughout your life. You can take it deeper and deeper, until the most profound truth is part of your everyday outlook. Going a step further, you can manifest that truth in your daily life. #Quote by Ilchi Lee
Unintended Truth quotes by Lemony Snicket
#22. Deciding on the right thing to do in a situation is a bit like deciding on the right thing to wear to a party. [ ... ] The truth is that you can never be sure if you have decided on the right thing until the party is over, and by then it is too late to go back and change your mind, which is why the world is filled with people doing terrible things and wearing ugly clothing. #Quote by Lemony Snicket
Unintended Truth quotes by George Gordon Byron
#23. Adversity is the first path to truth. #Quote by George Gordon Byron
Unintended Truth quotes by Walter J. Phillips
#24. It is not in the nature of lenses to tell the whole truth. They are instruments of exaggeration and belittlement. #Quote by Walter J. Phillips
Unintended Truth quotes by Walter Brueggemann
#25. It occurs to me that the situation of the church in our society, perhaps the church everywhere always, is entrusted with a truth that is inimical to present power arrangements. The theological crisis in the church - that shows up in preaching and in worship as elsewhere - is that the church has largely colluded with the totalism of the National Security State. Or more broadly, has uncritically colluded with Enlightenment reason that stands behind the National Security State that makes preaching Easter an epistemological impossibility. #Quote by Walter Brueggemann
Unintended Truth quotes by Eric Micha'el Leventhal
#26. The belief that myths are somehow less true than the symbolic dream we call 'reality' may be the greatest myth of all. #Quote by Eric Micha'el Leventhal
Unintended Truth quotes by Karen M. McManus
#27. I wonder if I could have done the same - bluffed and brazened my way through this whole nightmare without telling Jake the truth. Then I look at my sister, chuckling with the guy behind the coffee counter in a way she never did with Charlie, and remember how careful and contained I always had to be around Jake. If I was going to the party tonight I'd have to wear something he picked out, stay as late as he wanted, and not talk to anyone who might make him mad.

I miss him still. I do. But I don't miss that. #Quote by Karen M. McManus
Unintended Truth quotes by Tom Bodett
#28. John Muir, the famous naturalist, wrote in his journal that you should never go to Alaska as a young man because you'll never be satisfied with any other place as long as you live. And there's a lot of truth to that. #Quote by Tom Bodett
Unintended Truth quotes by Rabindranath Tagore
#29. Clothed in facts truth feels oppressed. In the garb of poetry it moves easy and free. #Quote by Rabindranath Tagore
Unintended Truth quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#30. Creating art is paradoxical because an artist seeks to express truth by penetrating and destroying illusions. Art is always the outpouring of a mind striving to achieve the impossible reconciliation of all the fragmented shards that make people human: frivolous amusements, idle moments, feelings of tenderness and pain, stored memories, future expectations, and unquenchable thirst to experience love and witness beauty. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Unintended Truth quotes by Tessa Dare
#31. Once you marry me, none of it is a lie," he pointed out. "It will be exactly as though you've told the truth all these years."
"Except for the part where we love each other."
He shrugged. "That's a minor detail. Love is just a lie people tell themselves. #Quote by Tessa Dare
Unintended Truth quotes by Bob Marley
#32. The truth is an offense but not a sin
Is he who laugh last, children! is he who win

Is a foolish dog bark at a flying bird
One sheep must learn, children! to respect the sheperd #Quote by Bob Marley
Unintended Truth quotes by John Shelby Spong
#33. Whatever it was that people experience in Jesus has today come to be identified with medieval doctrines based on premodern assumptions that are no longer believable. That identification means that serious theological discussion seems to accomplish little more than to erect a division between the shouters and the disinterested. Jesus becomes the captive of the hysterically religious, the chronically fearful, the insecure and even the neurotic among us, or he becomes little more than a fading memory, the symbol of an age that is no more and a nostalgic reminder of our believing past. To me neither option is worth pursuing. Yet even understanding these things, I am still attracted to this Jesus and I will pursue him both relentlessly and passionately. I will not surrender the truth I believe I find in him either to those who seek to defend the indefensible or to those who want to be freed finally from premodern ideas that no longer make any sense. #Quote by John Shelby Spong
Unintended Truth quotes by Bipan Chandra
#34. There was a greater truth - that of a glorious struggle, hard-fought and hard-won, in which many fell martyrs and countless others made sacrifices, dreaming of the day India would be free. That day had come. The people of India saw that too, and on 15 August - despite the sorrow in their hearts for the division of their land danced in the streets with abandon and joy. #Quote by Bipan Chandra
Unintended Truth quotes by Harold Pinter
#35. There are some things one remembers even though they may never have happened. #Quote by Harold Pinter
Unintended Truth quotes by Kent Haruf
#36. But listen to me, she said. What. You don't actually think I'm scary, do you? Yeah, I do. Tell me the truth. I'm serious now. That is the truth. At times I can't say I know what to make of you. Can't you? No. What do you mean? Why not? Because you're different than everybody else, he said. You don't seem to ever get defeated or scared by life. You stay clear in yourself, no matter what. She kissed him. Her dark eyes were watching him in the dim light. I get defeated sometimes, she said. I've been scared. But I'm just crazy about you. She reached down and touched him. Here's one part of you that seems to know what to make of me. You do make a person feel interested, said Guthrie. #Quote by Kent Haruf
Unintended Truth quotes by Robert Tew
#37. There's no need to look back. What's behind you is smaller than what's in front you. #Quote by Robert Tew
Unintended Truth quotes by Soren Kierkegaard
#38. People had not so much as the courage and honesty and truth to say to God bluntly, "That I cannot agree to," they resorted to hypocrisy and thought they were perfectly secure. pp 168-6 #Quote by Soren Kierkegaard
