    Clearness is so eminently one of the characteristics of truth that often it even passes for truth itself.

    The chief use to which we put our love of the truth is in persuading ourselves that what we love is true.

    Impulse control 

    If it is not the right thing to do, never do it; if it is not the truth, never say it. Keep your impulses in hand.

    Tags: precision, truth,   

    It is not exactly truth which is must wanting in men’s ideas, but precision and exactitude. Absolute falseness is seldom met with in their thoughts, and truth, pure and complete, is still more rarely to be found in their expressions.

    Take care when gathering information. We live mainly on information. We see very little for ourselves and live on others’ testimony. Hearing is truth’s last entry point, and a lie’s first. Truth… rarely reaches us unadulterated, especially when it comes from far off. It is always tinged with the emotions through which it had passed.

    Baltasar Gracián
