O ME, man of slack faith so long!
Standing aloof--denying portions so long;
Only aware to-day of compact, all-diffused truth;
Once on a time, the ancient legends tell,
Truth, rising from the bottom of her well,
Looked on the world, but, hearing how it lied,
Returned to her seclusion horrified.
Tell all the truth but tell it slant,
Success in circuit lies,
Too bright for our infirm delight
The truth's superb surprise;
The story's told
Of long ago
About a statue
With a head of gold
O truant Muse, what shall be thy amends
For thy neglect of truth in beauty dyed?
Both truth and beauty on my love depends;
So dost thou too, and therein dignified.
And then a scholar said, "Speak of Talking."
And he answered, saying:
We are a liars, because
the truth of yesterday becomes a lie tomorrow,
whereas letters are fixed,
and we live by the letter of truth.
Someone mentioned your name yesterday
and I was silent
You loved goodness, you were goodness,
I dreamed a dream and in that dream,
I dreamed that I had dreamed a dream,
Of hope and fairytales come true,
I dreamed a dream and thought of truth,
I was thinking that, when we get to heaven,
will we be made to sit in an auditorium,
and be shown on a huge 'CinemaScope' screen
a film of 'our life' from start to finish,
Flee from the press, and dwell with soothfastness;
Suffice thee thy good, though it be small;
For hoard hath hate, and climbing tickleness,
Press hath envy, and weal is blent o'er all,
I seek the truth in you
The weak lie is not you
So speak up, yes you
The innocent were slaughtered
So many years ago
In the town of Bethlehem
Slew by an evil foe
The defined and the undefined truth,
Endowed with knowledge or without knowledge,
Sometimes real or unreal,
Certainly including being and non-being,
At times and in some cases
Truth can be mixed with
Guile and guilt
Truth can be manipulated
Beauty is truth's smile
when she beholds her own face in a perfect mirror.
He tried to spit out the truth;
Dry-mouthed at first,
He drooled and slobbered in the end;
All the breath and the bloom of the year in the bag of one bee:
All the wonder and wealth of the mine in the heart of one gem:
In the core of one pearl all the shade and the shine of the sea:
Breath and bloom, shade and shine, wonder, wealth, and--how far above them--
AN ODE TO TRUTH
Wind is whirling, air is swirling,
Rocks are ringing, mounts are singing,
Nothing lives long, nothing shines long,
Truth, not the truth absolute,
Logic is the vehicle of philosophy, to define ultimate truth
Religion is truth on the basis of faith, the indisputable statement of truth,
When the belief is shaking, religious truth stands in tremor,
WHY DO HUMANS HATE TRUTH
Why is truth so hard,
Why is truth so sad,
Who torments your mind for telling a lie?
Sin does not touch him who tells a lie
On behalf of truth.
The whole truth does not consists in
A TRUTH LIES AS A SEED SOW DEEPLY ROOTED IN SOIL,
A TRUTH LIES AS CLOUD COVERS THE UNIVERSE,
A TRUTH LIES AS A LAYER OF OCEAN TOUCHES THE SKY,
