Postmodernists believe that truth is myth, and myth, truth. This equation has its roots in pop psychology. The same people also believe that emotions are a form of reality. There used to be another name for this state of mind. It used to be called psychosis.
Rather than love, than money, than fame, give me truth.
To some the truth is an insult, to others life from the dead.
The greatest friend of truth is time, her greatest enemy is prejudice, and her constant companion humility.
Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.
Martin Luther King Jr.
When a well-packaged web of lies has been sold gradually to the masses over generations, the truth will seem utterly preposterous and its speaker a raving lunatic.
Not being known doesn't stop the truth from being true.
If a lie is told by someone of importance, and re-told by those who have been told, it carries the weight of the one of the greatest power and assumes its own weight thereafter.
Truth never penetrates an unwilling mind.
J. L. Borges
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.
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.
Truth is something that is kindled from childhood attached with the development of core ethics.

Truth isn't all about what actually happens but more about how what has happened is interpreted.
Truth is generally the best vindication against slander.
False history gets made all day, any day, the truth of the new is never on the news.
All truths are easy to understand once they are discovered; the point is to discover them.
Whoever undertakes to set himself up as a judge of Truth and Knowledge is shipwrecked by the laughter of the gods.
Truth is beautiful, without doubt; but so are lies.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
The truth is not always what we want to hear.
