The Five Levels of Truth-Telling: First, you tell the truth to yourself about yourself. Then you tell the truth to yourself about another. At the third level, you tell the truth about yourself to another. Then you tell your truth about another to that other. And finally, you tell the truth to everyone about everything.
Neale Donald Walsch, Conversations with God, Book 2
No legacy is so rich as Honesty.
Truth is generally the best vindication against slander.
You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can not fool all the people all the time.
Never apologize for showing feeling. When you do so, you apologize for the Truth.
The Light is more than some abstract, unknowable energy force. Light is Truth. If Light is truth, then darkness must be lies. Each and every lie we tell to ourselves and others casts the shadow of separation upon us. Every time even the most minor deception is revealed and the truth is made known we are re-united with the Light. So, Let there be Light. Those are the words by which you can create your own magnificent world.
Renee Bledsoe, Addiction Alchemy
Truth is such a rare thing, it is delightful to tell it.
I was brought up to believe that the only thing worth doing was to add to the sum of accurate information in the world.
Always tell the Truth. That way, you don’t have to remember what you said.
The Truth is always exciting. Speak it, then. Life is dull without it.
Pearl S Buck
Fiction is the Truth inside the lie.
The biggest consequence to telling a lie is, it leads you to telling another one.
If you do not tell the Truth about yourself you cannot tell it about other people.
Who lies for you will lie against you.
No man has a good enough memory to make a successful liar.
A half Truth is a whole lie.
Those who think it is permissible to tell white lies soon grow color-blind.
With lies you may get ahead in the world – but you can never go back.
A lie has speed, but Truth has endurance.
Edgar J Mohn
Truth is the most valuable thing we have, so I try to conserve it.
Honesty is the first chapter in the book of wisdom.
There is no such thing as an inconsequential lie.
Truth allows you to live with integrity. Everything you do and say shows the world who you really are. Let it be the Truth.
The Truth is more important than the facts.
Frank Lloyd Wright
The Truth needs no rehearsal.

Duality is always secretly unity.
The truth is more important than the facts.
Frank Lloyd Wright
If you knew everything was really all right, and that it always has a happy ending, then you would not feel trepidacious about your future. Everything is really so very all right! If you could believe and trust that, then, immediately everything would automatically and instantly become all right.
Abraham-Hicks, from the workshop in Silver Springs, MD on Sunday, April 11, 1999
Our own life is the instrument with which we experiment with the truth.
Thich Nhat Hanh
All that you are attached to, all that you love, all that you know, someday will be gone. Knowing this, and that the world is your mind which you create, play in, and suffer from, is known as discrimination. Discriminate between the Real and the Unreal, the known is unreal and will come and go so stay with the Unknown, the Unchanging, the Truth.
If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything.
… negative feelings are not true feelings at all; rather, they are your thoughts about something, based always on the previous experience of yourself and others. You will not find Truth in your past data, only past data that is based on other past data that is based on other past data, and so forth. Forget your “past experience” and look directly at the experience you are having. Right Here, Right Now. There is your Truth.
Neale Donald Walsch
Tell the truth as soon as you know it.
Neale Donald Walsch, author of Conversations With God
Truth is enough. Remember that. Truth is all you need. Just as there is one sky which covers everything on earth, so is there one vast truth which covers all your needs. This is inspiration, but is also practical fact. Truth is enough.
The Daily Guru
I think you should take a chance with the truth. The truth is always worth it.
the Rabbi, in the film, The Outside Chance of Maxmillian Glik
For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst, and to provide for it.
Do not identify yourself with troubled thoughts. Do not say 'I am scared,' or, 'I am gloomy.' Instead say, 'A scene is passing through my mind, but it is not part of my true self.' When you say this, you declare the Cosmic Truth. It is the truth even if you do not presently feel that it is so. See it clearly and the genuine feeling follows.
The Daily Guru
The naked truth is always better than the best dressed lie.
Ann Landers (1918-2002)
Let my name stand among those who are willing to bear ridicule and reproach for the truth's sake, and so earn some right to rejoice when the victory is won.

I searched through rebellion, drugs, diets, mysticism, religions, intellectualism and much more, only to begin to find… that truth is basically simple – and feels good, clean and right.
Chick Corea (1941-) American jazz musician
Truth is like the sun. You can shut it out for a time, but it’s not going to go away.
Man has no nobler function than to defend the truth.
I wondered what else in my life I perceived to be wrong or difficult instead of exploring to understand the true purpose.
The edges of things are always deceptive because we are taught to believe in endings and beginnings. But the truth is: There Are No Borders.
Because I've always felt, whether the fatwa or whatever, the writer’s great weapon is the truth and integrity of his voice. And as long as what you’re saying is what you truly, honestly believe to be the case, then whatever the consequences, that’s fine. That’s an honorable position.
