Julian Assange -
Truth - Lies - Decisions - Ignorance

My people are going to learn the principles of democracy the dictates of truth and the teachings of science. Superstition must go. Let them worship as they will, every man can follow his own conscience provided it does not interfere with sane reason or bid him act against the liberty of his fellow men.
Mustafa Kemal Ataturk - Learning - Knowledge - Truth
- Politics

I tell you the truth: if I lived in a country where there was no day appointed for elections, I would become a revolutionary, if not a terrorist. And that is because I love liberty too much; without liberty a man is not a man. He has no dignity.
Silvio Berlusconi - Truth - Freedom - Politicians

The blunt truth about the politics of climate change is that no country will want to sacrifice its economy in order to meet this challenge, but all economies know that the only sensible long term way of developing is to do it on a sustainable basis.
Tony Blair - Truth - Politicians - Environmental - Economy - Change

You have to be precise. You have to be specific, but you want to be accurate. That is first and foremost. You want to be on top of the story, but words do matter.

I think if you look at people, whether in business or government, who haven't had any moral compass, who've just changed to say whatever they thought the popular thing was, in the end they're losers.

They don’t care about you at all! At all! At all! And nobody seems to notice. Nobody seems to care. That’s what the owners count on. The fact that Americans will probably remain willfully ignorant of the big red, white and blue dick that’s being jammed up their assholes every day, because the owners of this country know the truth. It’s called the American Dream, because you have to be asleep to believe it.
George Carlin - America - Dream - Big Business - Greed - Care - Ignorant - Truth

Anderson Cooper - News - Knowledge
- Internet - Truth

I'm not trying to be something that I'm not. I'm just trying to be myself and talk about what I know, and admit what I don't know.
Anderson Cooper - Truth - News - Knowledge


Harshness to me is giving somebody false hopes and not following through. That’s harsh. Telling some guy or some girl who’ve got zero talent that they have zero talent actually is a kindness.
Simon Cowell - Mean - Kind - Criticism - Hope
- Lies - Truth - Talent

The object of this competition is not to be mean to the losers but to find a winner. The process makes you mean because you get frustrated. Kids turn up unrehearsed, wearing the wrong clothes, singing out of tune and you can either say, "Good job" and patronize them or tell them the truth, and sometimes the truth is perceived as mean.
Simon Cowell - Mean - Truth - Criticism - Competition - Losing - Winning - Frustration
- Clothes

I can't think of one person who is on TV who isn't vain. It's the nature of the beast. If you are on TV then you have a vanity, for sure. Just admit it! Why not?
Simon Cowell - Truth - Media - Television - Vain


I can indeed hardly see how anyone ought to wish Christianity to be true; for if so the plain language of the text seems to show that the men who do not believe, and this would include my Father, Brother, and almost all my best friends, will be everlastingly punished. And this is a damnable doctrine.
Charles Darwin - Truth - Christianity - Belief - Family - Punishment - Control

Religion is about turning untested belief into unshakable truth through the power of institutions and the passage of time.

Albert Einstein - True
- Great - Challenges - Spirit - Understanding - Opinions - Courage

Mahatma Gandhi -

Truth resides in every human heart, and one has to search for it there, and to be guided by truth as one sees it. But no one has a right to coerce others to act according to his own view of the truth.
Mahatma Gandhi - Truth


The scientists are virtually screaming from the rooftops now. The debate is over! There's no longer any debate in the scientific community about this. But the political systems around the world have held this at arm's length because it's an inconvenient truth, because they don't want to accept that it's a moral imperative.
Al Gore - Environmental - Crisis - Responsibility - Politicians - Ethics - Truth

For a long time, the scientists have been telling us global warming increases the temperature of the top layer in the ocean, and that causes the average hurricane to become a lot stronger. So, the fact that the ocean temperatures did go up because of global warming, because of man-made global warming, starting around in the seventies and then we had a string of unusually strong hurricanes outside the boundaries of this multi-decadal cycle that is a real factor; there are scientists who point that out, and they're right, but we're exceeding those boundaries now.
Al Gore - Environmental - Truth

I have found no greater satisfaction than achieving success through honest dealing and strict adherence to the view that, for you to gain, those you deal with should gain as well.

It is decidedly not true that "nice guys finish last," as that highly original American baseball philosopher, Leo Durocher, was alleged to have said.
Alan Greenspan - Truth - Life - Dishonesty -

Truth is absolute, truth is supreme, truth is never disposable in national political life.
John Howard - Truth - Politicians


Be true to the game, because the game will be true to you. If you try to shortcut the game, then the game will shortcut you. If you put forth the effort, good things will be bestowed upon you. That's truly about the game, and in some ways that's about life too.
Michael Jordan - Motivational - Sports - True - Life

Naturally, every age thinks that all ages before it were prejudiced, and today we think this more than ever and are just as wrong as all previous ages that thought so. How often have we not seen the truth condemned! It is sad but unfortunately true that man learns nothing from history.
Carl Jung - History -
Now - Truth - Learning - Sad - Prejudice - Wrong

We should not pretend to understand the world only by the intellect; we apprehend it just as much by feeling. Therefore, the judgment of the intellect is, at best, only the half of truth, and must, if it be honest, also come to an understanding of its inadequacy.
Carl Jung - Understanding - Intelligent - Feelings - Judgment - Truth - Honesty


I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal."
Martin Luther King Jr - Dreams - America - Truth - People


Communism forgets that life is individual. Capitalism forgets that life is social, and the kingdom of brotherhood is found neither in the thesis of communism nor the antithesis of capitalism but in a higher synthesis. It is found in a higher synthesis that combines the truths of both. Now, when I say question the whole society, it means ultimately coming to see that the problem of racism, the problem of exploitation, and the problem of war are all tied together. These are the triple evils that are interrelated.
Martin Luther King Jr - Truth - Life - Racism - War - Evil - Communism - Capitalism - Questions - Social - Problems


A lot of people are afraid to tell the truth, to say no. That's where toughness comes into play. Toughness is not being a bully. It's having backbone.

Robert Kiyosaki - Truth - Fear - Leadership - Strength -

I threw my whole life and lived my life in a certain way to make sure that I would never violate any law.. certainly never any criminal laws.. and always maintained that most important to me was my integrity, was my character, were my values.
Kenneth Lay - Truth - Responsibility


A new poll shows that Americans now believe that Bill Clinton is more honest than President Bush. At least when Clinton screwed the nation, he did it one person at a time.
Jay Leno - Funny - Presidents - Truth - America

You can bend it and twist it.. You can misuse and abuse it.. But even God cannot change the Truth.
Michael Levy - Truth - God

Leadership rests not only upon ability, not only upon capacity; having the capacity to lead is not enough. The leader must be willing to use it. His leadership is then based on truth and character. There must be truth in the purpose and will power in the character.
Vince Lombardi - Leadership - Skill - Truth - Power

Musicians must make music, artists must paint, poets must write if they are to be ultimately at peace with themselves. What human beings can be, they must be. They must be true to their own nature.
Abraham Maslow -
People - Peace - Truth - Nature

Small and mid-sized companies in this country historically have been responsible for creating the overwhelming majority of new jobs in the private sector. One of the most-common misconceptions about our private enterprise system is that large companies, such as the Fortune 500, are integral to the process of job creation in this country. The truth is quite the opposite.
Michael Milken - Companies -
America - Jobs - Truth

There are no facts, only interpretations.
Friedrich Nietzsche - Facts - Truth - Opinions


What then is truth? A movable host of metaphors, metonymies, and anthropomorphisms: in short, a sum of human relations which have been poetically and rhetorically intensified, transferred, and embellished, and which, after long usage, seem to a people to be fixed, canonical, and binding. Truths are illusions which we have forgotten are illusions.. they are metaphors that have become worn out and have been drained of sensuous force, coins which have lost their embossing and are now considered as metal and no longer as coins.
Friedrich Nietzsche - Truth - Philosophy - Poetry - Illusions


When you’re really trying to make serious change, you don’t want people to get caught up in emotion because change isn’t emotion. Because change isn't emotion. Its real work and organization and strategy.. that’s just the truth of it. I mean, you pull people in with inspiration, but then you have to roll up your sleeves and you’ve got to make sacrifices and you have got to have structure.
Michelle Obama - Change - Inspirational - Emotional - Hard Work - Strategy - Truth - Sacrifice

All I ask is for powerful people to respond honestly to the questions, and if they can't, explain why.
Bill O'Reilly - Questions - Powerful - Truth

As an advisor, I can say what I want. If I were a politician, I would constantly have to compromise, and I’m incapable of doing that.
Azim Premji - Politician - Dishonesty - Truth

Character is one factor that will guide all our actions and decisions. We invested in uncompromising integrity that helped us take difficult stands in some of the most difficult business situations.

In our way of working, we attach a great deal of importance to humility and honesty; With respect for human values, we promise to serve our customers with integrity.
Azim Premji - Truth - Customers

What you see is what you get. There's no acting. That's the way I am. If I come out sounding fairly difficult, sometimes I am.
George Ross - Truth


In the 1960s, if you introduced a new product to America, 90% of the people who viewed it for the first time believed in the corporate promise. Then 40 years later if you performed the same exercise less than 10% of the public believed it was true. The fracturing of trust is based on the fact that the consumer has been let down.
Howard Schultz - Lies - Truth - Trust - Customers - Companies - Products - America

Any religion or philosophy which is not based on a respect for life is not a true religion or philosophy.
Albert Schweitzer - Life - Philosophy - Religion - Respect - True

The main focus in my life now is to open people's minds so no one will be so conceited that they think they have the total truth. They should be eager to learn, to listen, to research and not to confine, to hurt, to kill, those who disagree with them.
John Templeton - Focus - Learning - Truth


Those who have not found their true wealth, which is the radiant joy of Being and the deep, unshakable peace that comes with it, are beggars, even if they have great material wealth. They are looking outside for scraps of pleasure or fulfillment, for validation, security, or love, while they have a treasure within that not only includes all those things but is infinitely greater than anything the world can offer.
Eckhart Tolle - Truth -
Peace - Wealth - World - Love - Frustration - Happiness

Your mind is an instrument, a tool. It is there to be used for a specific task, and when the task is completed, you lay it down. As it is, I would say about 80 to 90 percent of most people's thinking is not only repetitive and useless, but because of its dysfunctional and often negative nature, much of it is also harmful. Observe your mind and you will find this to be true. It causes a serious leakage of vital energy.
Eckhart Tolle - Truth - Thinking - Negative - Energy

Fear arises through identification with form, whether it be a material possession, a physical body, a social role, a self-image, a thought, or an emotion. It arises through unawareness of the formless inner dimension of consciousness or spirit, which is the essence of who you are. You are trapped in object consciousness, unaware of the dimension of inner space which alone is true freedom.
Eckhart Tolle - Truth - Spiritual - Thinking - Fear - Assets - Emotion - Ego - Freedom


True salvation is freedom from negativity, and above all from past and future as a psychological need.
Eckhart Tolle - Now - Truth - Freedom - Negative


A man is never more truthful than when he acknowledges himself a liar.
Mark Twain - Truth - Lies
- Honesty

I have said to you to speak the truth is a painful thing. To be forced to tell lies is much worse.
Oscar Wilde - Truth - Dishonesty

It's much easier for me to make major life, multi-million dollar decisions, than it is to decide on a carpet for my front porch. That's the truth.
Oprah Winfrey - Life - Decisions - Money
