This is a brief collection of quotations about truth (Gk: aletheia) — and particularly about the seeking of it. I find that I posted quotes from this book nearly five years ago. I am intentionally repeating two of those here.
The world is not divided between those who have the truth and those who don’t; it is divided between those who are looking for the truth and those who aren’t.
No one can open his mind to the truth without risking the entrance of falsehood; and no one can close his mind to falsehood without risking the exclusion of truth.
Truth is the concern of every sincere, responsible, and honest person. . . . What we . . . need is the sharing of discovered truth.
All of us who are interested in truth must pool our efforts to dig away the debris that has collected about truth for centuries.
Keep one thing forever in view – the truth; and if you do this, though it may seem to lead you away from the opinions of man, it will assuredly conduct you to the throne of God. – Horace Mann, 1796-1859, American educator

From the cowardice that shrinks from new truths,
From the laziness that is content with half truths,
From the arrogance that thinks it knows all truth,
O God of Truth, deliver us.
