Truth Quotes


Truth quotes generally relate to how difficult it can be to tell the truth - at least on a regular basis. One of America's greatest treasures, cowboy, humorist and social commentator Will Rogers, summarized this conundrum in his typical straightforward delivery with the classic epigram, '"A remark generally hurts in proportion to its truth." This Cherokee-born Oklahoman traveled the world three times, providing him the unique opportunity to observe society's struggle and success with truth on a global level. Truth quotes remind us that being honest is often at the sacrifice of one's relationships and reputation, and yet, gives us hope of becoming a better person. Reference.com Definition of Truth

inspirational    Quote of the Day    Truth   

Jan Denise

"Anytime I am looking to somebody else as my source, I'm coming from scarcity. I am no longer trusting God, or the Universe, for my harvest. It's reasonable for me to have expectations based on what somebody I trust has committed to. And it's natural for me to feel disappointed when that somebody doesn't come through. But when I feel more than disappointment, when I also feel anger, it's because I deviated from my truth. It's because I compromised my truth to get what somebody else promised. Because when I'm really following my truth, I will be at peace with the consequences whatever they are. I can accept somebody else's truth, but I must live my own truth. And sometimes that means walking away from a relationship." Jan Denise
