They dont care about you at all! At
all! At all! And nobody seems to notice.
Nobody seems to care. Thats what the
owners count on. The fact that Americans
will probably remain willfully ignorant

Colbert - Truth
I think it's a good thing that there are bloggers out there watching very

process as possible.

and talk about what I know, and admit what I don't know.

hopes and not following through. Thats
harsh. Telling some guy or some girl whove

actually is a kindness.
Cowell - Mean
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
Cowell - Mean

a true master. For this reason mastery demands

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
Gore - Environmental
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.
Gore - Environmental

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
Jordan - Motivational
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.
Jung - History
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.
Jung - Understanding
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
Luther King Jr - Dreams
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.
Luther King Jr - Truth
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.

Lay - Truth
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.

cannot change the Truth.
Levy - Truth
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.
Lombardi - Leadership
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.
Maslow - People
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.
Milken - Companies
There are no facts, only interpretations.
Nietzsche - Facts
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
Nietzsche - Truth
When youre really trying to make serious
change, you dont want people to get
caught up in emotion because change isnt
emotion. Because change isn't emotion. Its
real work and organization and strategy..
thats just the truth of it. I mean,
you pull people in with inspiration, but
then you have to roll up your sleeves and
youve got to make sacrifices and you
have got to have structure.
Obama - Change

I were a politician, I would constantly
have to compromise, and Im incapable
of doing that.
Premji - Politician
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.
Premji - Truth
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.
Premji - Truth
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.
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.
Schultz - Lies
Any religion or philosophy which is not
based on a respect for life is not a true
religion or philosophy.
Schweitzer - Life
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.
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
Tolle - Truth

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.
Tolle - Truth
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.
Tolle - Truth

- Ego - Freedom
True salvation is freedom from negativity, and above all from past and future
as a psychological need.
Tolle - Now
A man is never more truthful than when he
acknowledges himself a liar.
Twain - Truth
I have said to you to speak the truth is
a painful thing. To be forced to tell lies
is much worse.

dollar decisions, than it is to decide on
a carpet for my front porch. That's the
