Comfort is no test of truth. Truth is often far from being comfortable.
The greatest truths are the simplest things in the world, simple as your own existence.
Of one hundred persons who take up the spiritual life, eighty turn out to be charlatans, fifteen insane, and only five, maybe, get a glimpse of the real truth. Therefore beware.
Soft-brained people, weak-minded, chicken-hearted, cannot find the truth. One has to be free, and as broad as the sky.
Tell the truth boldly, whether it hurts or not. Never pander to weakness. If truth is too much for intelligent people and sweeps them away, let them go; the sooner the better.
Our duty is to encourage every one in his struggle to live up to his own highest idea, and strive at the same time to make the ideal as near as possible to the Truth.
Truth can be stated in a thousand different ways, yet each one can be true.
?I will abide by my reason, because with all its weakness there is some chance of my getting at truth through it. We should therefore follow reasons, and also sympathise with those who do not come to any sort of belief, following reason.
Comfort is no test of truth; on the contrary, truth is often far from being comfortable.
All truth is eternal. Truth is nobody's property; no race, no individual can lay any exclusive claim to it. Truth is the nature of all souls.
It is the patient building of character, the intense struggle to realize the truth, which alone will tell in the future of humanity.
One who leans on others cannot serve the God of Truth.
Pray all the time, read all the scriptures in the world, and worship all the gods there are...but unless you realize the Truth, there is no freedom.
Truth does not pay homage to any society, ancient or modern. Society has to pay homage to Truth or die.
We must approach religion with reverence and with love, and our heart will stand up and say, this is truth, and this is untruth.
