Sunday Dinner: Paradox


“Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact.

Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth.”


  Marcus Aurelius



“Art is the lie that

enables us to realize the truth.”


  Pablo Picasso



“But you can’t make people listen.

They have to come round in their own time,

wondering what happened

and why the world blew up around them.

It can’t last.”


  Ray Bradbury



“The opposite of a correct statement

is a false statement.

But the opposite of a profound truth

may well be another profound truth.”


Niels Bohr



“You may choose to look the other way

but you can never say again

that you did not know.”


William Wilberforce



“I do not know what I may appear to the world,

but to myself I seem to have been only like a boy

playing on the sea-shore,

and diverting myself

in now and then finding a smoother pebble

or a prettier shell than ordinary,

whilst the great ocean of truth

lay all undiscovered before me.”


Isaac Newton



“Mistakes are, after all, the foundations of truth,

and if a man does not know what a thing is,

it is at least an increase in knowledge

if he knows what it is not. ”


Carl G. Jung

“Cherish those who seek the truth

but beware of those who find it.”
