Fascinating Quotes on Truth

Robert Brault Quote

The world is filled with devoted truth seekers looking for their ultimate truth. This begs the question of what exactly is truth.A very profound question, indeed, and not a very simple one to answer either.We might all have our own individual truths, or a collective truth if we form part of a community, such as in a place of worship or on a larger scale, their religious beliefs.

quote

Our ideas of God tell us more about ourselves than about Him.

– Thomas Merton

quote

It is a puzzling thing. The truth knocks on the door and you say, “Go away, I’m looking for the truth”… and so it goes away.
Puzzling.

– Robert M. Pirsig

quote

The whole created universe is made of living energy that moves and oscillates and shines. This boundless store of restless cosmic energy has terrible destructive power. It’s like an upraised thunderbolt: to petty ego’s fragile life, identified with little body, sense and mind.

But if, transcending petty ego, all the world is known as life – as only living energy – then how can death arise at all? For one who knows the world like this, as only life, there is no death. In truth, there’s only deathlessness.

– From the Upanishads

quote

You’ve traveled up ten thousand steps in search of the truth.
So many days in the archives, copying, copying.
The gravity of the Tang and the profundity of the Sung make heavy baggage.
Here! I’ve picked you a bunch of wild flowers.
Their meaning is the same but they’re much easier to carry.

– Hsu Yun

quote

It does not appear or disappear.
It is not born and does not die.
It is neither constructed nor raised up,
Neither made nor produced.

It is neither sitting nor lying,
Neither walking nor standing still,
Neither moving nor turning over,
Neither at rest nor idle.

It does not advance or retreat,
Knows not safety or danger,
Neither right nor wrong.
It is neither virtuous nor improper.

It is neither this nor that,
Neither going nor coming.

– From the Lotus Sutra

quote

Knowing is passing from the false to the true
and seeing the Absolute Whole in the part.

– Mahmud Shabistari

quote

There are only two mistakes one can make along the road to truth:

  1. Not going all the way, and
  2. Not starting.

-Buddha
