Seek truth from facts.
Truth is one forever absolute, but opinion is truth filtered through the moods, the blood, the disposition of the spectator.
Truth is so obscure in these times, and falsehood so established, that, unless we love the truth, we cannot know it.
There really can be no peace without justice. There can be no justice without truth. And there can be no truth, unless someone rises up to tell you the truth.
I tell you the solemn truth, that the doctrine of the Trinity is not so difficult to accept for a working proposition as any one of the axioms of physics.
Truth is confirmed by inspection and delay; falsehood by haste and uncertainty.

Such truth, as opposeth no man’s profit, nor pleasure, is to all men welcome.
Truth, like light, blinds. Falsehood, on the contrary, is a beautiful twilight that enhances every object.
Character is the starting point from which we go on. When I say a man has character, I mean that when you go to that man and say, ‘What are the facts in this case?’ he will tell you the truth, justly, truly, and wisely as he knows, with the minimum of exhibitionism and the maximum of devotion to the common cause.
