All truths are easy to understand once they are discovered; the point is to discover them.
AND PARDON ERROR.
All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.
The opposite of a correct statement is a false statement. But the opposite of a profound truth may well be another profound truth.
FICTION IS OBLIGED TO STICK TO POSSIBILITIES.
Whenever you have truth, it must be given with love,
or the message and the messenger will be rejected.
Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing ever happened.
~Sir Winston Churchill
How often have I said to you that when you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth?
~Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
If one tells the truth, one is sure sooner or later to be found out.
