Truth

Truth is wonderful and survives even when lies or stories float in the air, it remains true. Given today is Good Friday, I thought I’d focus on the power of truth!

“Truth is generally the best vindication against slander.” Abraham Lincoln

“We know the truth, not only by the reason, but also by the heart.” Blaise Pascal

“Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but not their own facts.” Daniel Patrick Moynihan

“The truth will set you free. But first, it will piss you off.” Gloria Steinem

“One isn’t necessarily born with courage, but one is born with potential. Without courage, we cannot practice any other virtue with consistency. We can’t be kind, true, merciful, generous, or honest.” Maya Angelou

Good Friday Quotes

And in the article of death, as He saw the last fold of the grand design unrolled, He passed out of the world with the cry on His lips, “It is finished!” He uttered this cry as a soldier might do on the battlefield, who perceives, with the last effort of consciousness, that the struggle in which he has sacrificed his life has been a splendid victory. But the triumph and the reward of His work never come to an end; for still, as the results of what He did unfold themselves age after age, as His words sink deeper into the minds of men, as His influence changes the face of the world, and as heaven fills with those whom He has redeemed, “He shall see of the travail of His soul, and shall be satisfied.”

James Stalker

One thought on “Truth

  1. From first hand experience, this is very true. It may take time for those to see the truth, but nothing is sweeter than the truth being revealed. Liars use to be my biggest pet peeve and still do not understand why people lie to hurt people they are friends or family with. It takes a strong person to lead a truthfull life. I think it is the only way to live and be a true Christian. A very poetic topic Gina! Love, Cousin Christine
