Looking for quotes about truth then start here. Inspirational truth sayings will give you an opportunity to contemplate some of life's interesting issues amidst what others say. Truth is not always easily interpreted nor is it always obvious. Some of the biggest so called "truths" may in fact be no more than a myth or story retold by those who choose to believe rather than dig into it to question its validity. The question often occurs about what has been told by people of power whether their statements are truth or are a convenient self-serving interpretation. People are not as na´ve as they once were and so it is that what is spoken as truth is often held up to the light of scrutiny. Some of these included quotes about truth are therefore from those who question and not from those who simply believe everything they hear.

What a man believes upon grossly insufficient evidence is an index into his desires - desires of which he himself is often unconscious. If a man is offered a fact which goes against his instincts, he will scrutinize it closely, and unless the evidence is overwhelming, he will refuse to believe it. If, on the other hand, he is offered something which affords a reason for acting in accordance to his instincts, he will accept it even on the slightest evidence. The origin of myths is explained in this way. Bertrand Russell
Truth is something that is kindled from childhood attached with the development of core ethics. Byron Pulsifer
