FOR want of me the world’s course will nor fail; 
When all its work is done, the lie shall rot;
The truth is great and shall prevail,
When none cares whether it prevail or not.
Coventry Patmore


“TRUTH!” I cried, “though the Heavens crush me for following her: no Falsehood! though a whole celestial Lubberland were the price of Apostacy.”
Thomas Carlyle


TRUTH which only doth judge itself teachetd that the inquiry of truth (which is the love-making or wooing 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.
Francis Bacon


NOWADAYS, truth is so obscure and falsehood is so established, that unless we love truth we are unable to recognize it.
Blaise Pascal
