August 15

THOUGH love repine and reason chafe,
There came a voice without reply,—
“’Tis man’s perdition to be safe,
When for the truth he ought to die.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson


IT is one thing to have truth on our side, and another thing to wish to be on the side of truth.
Richard Whately


LET thy Oaths be sacred, and Promises be made upon the Altar of thy Heart. Call not Jove to witness with a Stone in one Hand, and a Straw in another, and so make Chaff and Stubble of thy vows.
Sir Thomas Browne


THOSE are weaklings who know the truth and uphold it as long as it suits their purpose, and then abandon it.
Blaise Pascal
