104 Truth Quotes That Influence You To Be Real And Authentic

Truth

The truth shall set you free. But still, it's always easier for people to go with the lie. Did you know that our brains are naturally better at telling the truth? There is more activity in the brain when one is telling a lie compared to when they are saying the truth.

Repeated lying affects our brains because, with time, it becomes easier to lie. When lying becomes a tendency, the negative feelings we get from lying like guilt, fear, and anxiety, reduce. And although pathological liars are very natural when it comes to telling lies, you too can get close to that the more you lie.

But why would one not just tell the truth? Think of some of the times that you have told lies before. Why did you do it and was it worth it? There are many reasons why we would avoid the truth and opt for a lie.

Reasons include avoiding punishment, protecting someone's feelings, evading conflicts, protecting someone, impressing people, getting a reward, boosting one's reputation, maintaining privacy, avoiding embarrassment, or getting out of an uncomfortable situation.

Strangers usually lie within minutes of meeting each other. The average person hears between ten to two hundred lies in a day. This goes to show just how far we drift from the truth.

When someone is telling the truth, they use fewer words because they don't feel the need to support their truth. However, when someone is lying, they will try to convince you by giving many details. Although some lies are justifiable, some are not.

Lying can break trust, ruin relationships, lower touch of reality, etc. Before telling a lie, take into account not only what you will gain, but also what you could lose. Then ask yourself, is it worth it? May our truth quotes lead you to the truth!

The truth is that we can’t change others’ behavior and control them. Trying to change others is just wasting time, so it’s better to let them go and save our lives.

It’s about taking everything you thought was true and throwing it out the window. It’s about embracing life’s unpredictability, letting go of boundaries, and starting over.

Living from the worlds within us will change our outer worlds. Here’s the rub: Destruction is essential to construction. If we want to build the new, we must be willing to let the old burn. We must be committed to holding on to nothing but the truth. We must decide that if the truth inside us can burn a belief, a family structure, a business, a religion, an industry—it should have become ashes yesterday.

I had decided against religion a couple of years back. If it were true, it made fools out of people, or it drew fools. And if it weren’t true, the fools were all the more foolish.

At the end of the day, your life is just a story. If you don't like the direction it's going, change it. Rewrite it. When you rewrite a sentence, you erase it and start over until you get it right. Yes, it's a little more complicated with a life, but the principle is the same. And remember, don't let anyone ever tell you that your revisions are not the truth.

Kagura Sohma: Isuzu? Are you going somewhere? I thought we could hang out! Oh, I know! The vacation house! That’s where everybody is at right now! Yun-chan is there, and Shi-chan, Hari-chan too! And, most importantly above all, my sweet Kyo! Plus, if you go, you can finally have the chance to- Isuzu Sohma: Kagura, how much longer are you going to go around playing at love? It makes me cringe. Kagura Sohma: Playing? Why would you say that? Isuzu Sohma: Because... It’s true, isn’t it?

The thing is, if she didn’t love all of me, that would’ve been fine. Or even if… if she were scared, I’d get that. Because being scared would’ve meant she was looking at the ugly part of me. But she never did. Mom used love to avoid seeing the truth… to avoid even thinking about it. But I wanted her to understand. I just wanted her to say ‘we would face it together.’ To say, she wanted to stay. Even back then, I knew it was stupid. A kid’s dream…that would never come true…because who would ever say something like that to me? That’s what I thought.. until… Tohru… Tohru…

She couldn’t tell you. It’s hard to tell someone that you’re being bullied. I couldn’t tell my mom, either. She found out after a while, though. For some reason, I started apologizing like crazy. I felt so ashamed. I started to feel ashamed of myself for being bullied. And I was embarrassed to let my mom find out. I was scared she wouldn’t love me anymore. I was scared… …to let people know about this part of myself. I desperately tried to hide it by pretending I was okay. That made me feel even more ashamed… and embarrassed. So when my mom said, “It’s okay,” I was so relieved. She said that there was nothing to be embarrassed about, and I cried again, this time in relief. Kisa-san might also feel this way. She didn’t want you to hate her. She couldn’t tell you because she loves you.

Are you still trying to convince people that nonsense is true? You little fool. How many times do I have to explain this to you? That so-called bond may make you feel something, but it is not real love. The "forever unchanging" story you like to tell yourself is exactly that: A fantasy. A delusion. So of course I pity the ones who have to put up with it.

Turgenev was a very serious fellow but he could make me laugh because a truth first encountered can be very funny. When someone else's truth is the same as your truth, and he seems to be saying it just for you, that's great.

A time comes when silence is betrayal. Even when pressed by the demands of inner truth, men do not easily assume the task of opposing their government's policy, especially in time of war. Nor does the human spirit move without great difficulty against all the apathy of conformist thought, within one's own bosom and in the surrounding world.

Endurance is more important than truth because without endurance there can't be any truth. And truth means going to the end like you mean it. That way, death itself comes up short when it grabs.

We’re searching for a reason of existence. With our own strength, because maybe the truth is that there’s no reason for life from the very beginning. Everyone hopes and tries so hard to find a reason of existence. The reason of birth, of staying with someone, of existence, believing we have to find them all with our own hands. Like finding a place for ourselves in dreams, in jobs, in people. The reasons we conclude may be indefinite and fragile. We may lose it too, but even so, we want a reason. As long as I’m alive, I want it too. If possible, I want to find a reason of existence within a person, within someone.

From the Scriptures we find basic truths that may serve as the foundation of our teaching of history. The first basic truth is that God is in control of history. God's control may take the form of caring, governing, protecting, sustaining, and preserving. He exercises His will through divine superintendence or by divine intervention.

Committed decisions show up in two places — your calendar and your checkbook. No matter what you say you value, or even think your priorities are, you have only to look at last year’s calendar and checkbook to see the decisions you have made about what you truly value.

It was a lie. The truth is that this world doesn’t need anyone. It doesn’t need parents, teachers, the people we look up to, children, or adults. The world doesn’t need me, or Katsuya. The world doesn’t need any of us. The world doesn’t care who lives or dies. The sun rises just the same. The world doesn’t give a damn about anybody…and that’s so sad. In the end, we’re all alone. I’m sure that’s why we seek each other out. We want to need and be needed. We want to meet someone who needs us.

I want to see her so much, but – and I know it was only twice – but she was still my first…my first time since becoming a “human being” that I, myself, thought I could fall in love with someone of my own free will. The truth is, we could embrace as much as we liked. I’m no longer possessed. I alone was freed so easily from the curse that everyone else is still suffering under. I alone am free. I could go anywhere I please. I could love whomever I wish. But that’s exactly why I have to…I have to stay with Akito.

If you do, you are both fortunate and correct, in fact the beautiful truth is that everyone is creative and we all have the ability to develop our creative potential.

The person who walks the creative path is likely to find they are in places no one has ever been before.

It's incredibly arrogant to pick and choose which incomprehensible truths we embrace. No one wants to ditch God's plan of redemption [the cross], even though it doesn't make sense to us. Neither should we erase God's revealed plan of punishment because it doesn't sit well with us. As soon as we do this, we are putting God's actions in submission to our own reasoning, which is a ridiculous thing for clay to do.

If I tell the truth about me, what can the world say? I’d love to be accepted, but I’m not seeking acceptance. If you are a fan, it’s because you’re a fan of who I am psychological, emotionally, and individually. The world can relate to a human being more than it can relate to a superstar.

It wasn’t closure, really. But I’d said the right things. I’d hit on some truths. Maybe some things didn’t get closure. Maybe some things weren’t really worth it, or didn’t really need it, and after a while the unimportance would become obvious.

After all, the living book of God's creation lies open for all to see; it points constantly to the divine calling for which we were placed in nature. Nature is a continual admonition to us, for nowhere has God's creation departed so far from its origin and primeval purpose as in the human race.
