Some quotes...

"The first reaction to truth is hatred"

"All truths are easy to understand once they are discovered; the point is to discover them."
-Galileo Galilei

"The belief that there is only one truth, and that oneself is in possession of it, is the root of all evil in the world."
- Max Born

"And we should consider every day lost on which we have not danced at least once. And we should call every truth false which was not accompanied by at least one laugh."
- Friedrich Nietzsche

"A thing is not necessarily true because a man dies for it."
- Oscar Wilde

"The search for truth is more precious than its possession."
- Albert Einstein

"Believe those who are seeking the truth; doubt those who find it."
- Andre Gide

"Whenever you have truth it must be given with love, or the message and the messenger will be rejected"
- Mahatma Gandhi

"The truth will set you free. But first, it will piss you off."
- Gloria Steinem

"Unthinking respect for authority is the greatest enemy of truth."
-Albert Einstein

"You never find yourself until you face the truth."
-Pearl Bailey

"What you perceive, you observations, feelings, interpretations, are all your truth. Your truth is important. Yet it is not The Truth."
- Linda Ellinor

"The truth is not for all men, but only for those who seek it."
-Ayn Rand

"Believe nothing just because a so-called wise person said it.
Believe nothing just because a belief is generally held.
Believe nothing just because it is said in ancient books.
Believe nothing just because it is said to be of divine origin.
Believe nothing just because someone else believes it.
Believe only what you yourself test and judge to be true."
