With the world abuzz with the Wikileaks bombshell, we should all take heed and reflect on the meaning & ramifications of this information. However one may judge Julian Assange & his mysterious past & motivations, that’s a separate matter–we should not shoot the messenger if we don’t like the message. Let’s make it our duty as citizens to get the facts and question, question, question….With that said, I offer a few relevant quotes I especially like on the nature of ‘truth’…
Truth, like milk, arrives in the dark
But even so, wise dogs don’t bark.
Only mongrels make it hard
For the milkman to come up the yard.
Truth has very few friends and those few are suicides.
When I tell any truth, it is not for the sake of convincing those who do not know it, but for the sake of defending those that do.
Theories are private property, but truth is common stock.
Truth breeds hatred.
Truth is the breath of life to human society. It is the food of the immortal spirit. Yet a single word of it may kill a man as suddenly as a drop of prussic acid.
Man has always sacrificed truth to his vanity, comfort and advantage. He lives… by make-believe.
If a thousand old beliefs were ruined in our march to truth, we must still march on.
