Quotations #095

"A truth that's told with bad intent beats all the lies you can invent." -- William Blake

"As there is no worse lie than a truth misunderstood by those who hear it, so reasonable arguments, challenges to magnanimity, and appeals to sympathy or justice, are folly when we are dealing with human crocodiles and boa-constrictors." -- William James

"The truth of a proposition has nothing to do with its credibility. And vice versa." -- Robert A. Heinlein.

"The first reaction to truth is hatred." -- Tertullian

"One of the most untruthful things possible, you know, is a collection of facts, because they can be made to appear so many different ways." -- Karl Menninger

"Breach of promise is a base surrender of truth." -- Mohandas Gandhi
