‘Tis strange — but true; for truth is always strange;
Stranger than fiction.


Truth never lost ground by enquiry.

WILLIAM PENN, Some Fruits of Solitude

Truth is the highest thing that man may keep.

When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.


To hell with the truth! As the history of the world proves, the truth has no bearing on anything. It’s irrelevant and immaterial, as the lawyers say. The lie of a pipe dream is what gives life to the whole misbegotten mad lot of us, drunk or sober.

Truth can hardly be expected to adapt herself to the crooked policy and wily sinuosities of worldly affairs; for truth, like light, travels only in straight lines.

Nobody ever sees truth except in fragments.

HENRY WARD BEECHERProverbs from Plymouth Pulpit

A man may be in as just possession of the truth as of a city, and yet be forced to surrender.


Truth crushed to earth shall rise again.


Tell all the Truth but tell it slant–
Success in Circuit lies
Too bright for our infirm Delight
The Truth’s superb surprise.

EMILY DICKINSON, Tell all the Truth but tell it slant–

They frequently find the truth who do not seek it, they who do, frequently lose it.

FANNY KEMBLE, Further Records, Feb. 8, 1875

In all perception of the truth there is a divine ecstasy, an inexpressible delirium of joy, as when a youth embraces his betrothed virgin.


Truth is like the town whore. Everybody knows her, but nonetheless, it’s embarrassing to meet her on the street.


Personally, I don’t give a rap for documents; for the truth in my eyes is not in them but in the mind.

JOHN MILTON, Areopagitica

I never saw any good that came of telling truth.

JOHN DRYDEN, Amphitryon

Truth has rough flavours if we bite it through.


Truth doesn’t always heal a wounded soul.

MAXIM GORKY, The Lower Depths

A truth that’s told with bad intent
Beats all the lies you can invent.

WILLIAM BLAKE, Auguries of Innocence

The discovery of truth is prevented more effectively, not by the false appearance things present and which mislead into error, not directly by weakness of the reasoning powers, but by preconceived opinion, by prejudice.

A worship of truth can be idolatry if the truth is small enough.

AUSTIN O’MALLEY, Keystones of Thought

Truth and Good are one; and Beauty dwells in them, and they in her.

MARK AKENSIDE, The Pleasures of Imagination

It is only those who are in constant revolt that discover what is true, not the man who conforms, who follows some tradition. It is only when you are constantly inquiring, constantly observing, constantly learning, that you find truth, God, or love.

JIDDU KRISHNAMURTI, Think on These Things

Belief in the truth commences with the doubting of all those “truths” we once believed.

FRIEDRICH NIETZSCHE, “Truth Will Have No Other Gods Alongside It”

The belief that there is only one truth and that oneself is in possession of it seems to me the deepest root of all evil that is in the world.

MAX BORN, as quoted in Judith Sherven’s The New Intimacy

Sanity is not truth. Sanity is conformity to what is socially expected. Truth is sometimes in conformity, sometimes not.


And diff’ring judgments serve but to declare
That truth lies somewhere, if we knew but where.


It is the way with half the truth amidst which we live, that it only haunts us and makes dull pulsations that are never born into sound.


The heart is an artist that paints over what profoundly disturbs us, leaving on the canvas a less dark, less sharp version of the truth.

Truth is a torch, but a huge one, and so it is only with blinking eyes what we all of us try to get past it, in actual terror of being burnt.

JOHANN WOLFGANG VON GOETHE, The Maxims and Reflections of Goethe

Truth is new, as well as old. It has new forms; and where you may find a new statement, an earnest statement, you may conclude that by the law of progress it is more likely to be a correct statement than that which has been repeated for ages by the lips of tradition.

E. H. CHAPIN, Living Words

Truth …
Is a breath, a wind,
A shadow, a phantom;
Long have I pursued it,
But never have I touched
The hem of its garment.

STEPHEN CRANE, The Black Riders and Other Lines

Truth lives in the cellar, error on the doorstep.

Truth is within ourselves.


I sometimes have these spells of compulsive truth. But as Lady Macbeth would say, “The fit is momentary.”

God Answers Prayers

Post # 17

I have computer problems so much that I have resulted in just posting this message that I love from one of my friends.

God did NOT give you a spirit of fear.
God did NOT give you an attitude of fear.
God did NOT give you a problem with fear.
He gave you something else – POWER

The sixth day. If you’ve never done a daily spiritual practice
before, it’s a big deal to complete six days. Let yourself rest into
this practice. Let it be a gift to yourself.

Tip: Next time someone is saying something to you that you don’t
like, or having trouble with, instead of trying to prove them wrong,
or thinking about what you want to say to them next, just be in
Remembrance, and listen to what they are saying. You may or may not
disagree with what they say; it’s not about letting them be “right,”
it’s just about letting yourself be present while they have their

Stay in Remembrance, and make room for what they are saying, and for
how you are feeling.

After they finish, if you don’t have a reply that you think will
help the situation, just say something like, “Thank you- I need to
think about what you said, and I’ll get back to you.” or whatever is
appropriate that gives you time.

How did it feel not to fight with them- just to allow them to be
where they are, while your heart rested in Remembrance?

Business Use of the Remembrance: Truth telling without judgment.

Back in the 1990’s I was involved with a network marketing company,
deeply entangled, with a certain amount of success. However,
despite my company success, I was deep in debt and struggling, but
unwilling to look at the harsh facts. This was a subject of a lot of
struggle and fighting with my wife. She tried to not be judgmental
of where I was, but it was affecting our lives pretty strongly- how
to balance not trying to control me with being clear about her own
needs? It didn’t work and we fought a lot.

She had learned the Remembrance before I did, and had spent an hour
with one of the senior faculty of the Jaffe Institute in a session,
doing Remembrance with the whole situation.

After the session, she came out, and spoke really clearly, without
control, without judgment, but just stating how she felt and what
she wanted.

It was one of those moments that I felt a cellular shift in my being.
Suddenly, it was over. In that one moment of truth speaking, from
the depths of Remembrance, I was done with the company, I was done
with our struggling, and I was back in the relationship.

She could hardly believe it was true. I said, quietly, “Well, I
guess I’m out.” I quit that afternoon, and soon after embarked on
my first company, Success by Design, which led me on a direct path
to Heart of Business.

Is there some truth that you need to speak? Or is there someone who
has been trying to tell you the truth about something that you can’t
hear? Bring Remembrance to the situation. See what is the truth
for you.


p.s. If you have my book, Unveiling the Heart of Your Business, although I
don’t specifically write about “truth telling,” I do write about The Veil of
Safety, which is your doorway to abundance, and which helps to make it easier
to tell the truth, in Chapter 14, page 125.

If you need the book, you can find it here:

Heart of Business
When you want to make a difference, and need to make a profit.

God’s Law Of Attraction In Action (via No Busy Signal)

January 6, 2011 2 comments

God is in everything thus the law of attraction is Him.

Do you believe it?  Can you now see it?   Do you believe that like attracts like?  That you can  DO, create your own future (for good or bad) by the words that you speak and the thoughts you think.  Ted Williams is a good example of the Law of attraction and embedded in this, is the Law of Reciprocity as well.  From rags to riches in three days time?  Maybe. That’s yet to be seen.  But we are w … Read More
