“There are two ways to be fooled.
One is to believe what isn’t true;
the other is to refuse to believe what is true.”
“Just because you don’t understand it
doesn’t mean it isn’t so.”
“If you look for truth,
you may find comfort in the end;
if you look for comfort
you will not get neither comfort or truth
only soft soap and wishful thinking to begin,
and in the end, despair.”
“There’s a world of difference between truth and facts.
Facts can obscure truth.”
“The truth is not always beautiful,
nor beautiful words the truth.”
“If someone is able to show me
that what I think or do is not right,
I will happily change, for I seek the truth,
by which no one was ever truly harmed.
It is the person who continues
in his self-deception and ignorance
who is harmed.”
“A thinker sees his own actions
as experiments and questions-
-as attempts to find out something.
Success and failure are for him
answers above all.”
“For me, it is far better to grasp the Universe as it really is
than to persist in delusion,
however satisfying and reassuring.”
“I am not bound to win, but I am bound to be true.
I am not bound to succeed,
but I am bound to live up to what light I have.”
