#1. We all have a social mask, right? We put it on, we go out, put our best foot forward, our best image. But behind that social mask is a personal truth, what we really, really believe about who we are and what we're capable of. - Author: Phil McGraw
Personal Truth quotes by Phil McGraw
#2. The more that you're knowing, the more you will be feeling and seeing, the more that you will hurt in your heart, and in your self. Deep heart understanding replaces your need and your holding of personal truths. - Author: John De Ruiter
Personal Truth quotes by John De Ruiter
#3. I will not mention the name (and what bits of it I happen to give here appear in decorous disguise) of that man, that Franco-Hungarian writer... I would rather not dwell upon him at all, but I cannot help it - he is surging up from under my pen. Today one does not hear much about him; and this is good, for it proves that I was right in resisting his evil spell, right in experiencing a creepy chill down my spine whenever this or that new book of his touched my hand. The fame of his likes circulates briskly but soon grows heavy and stale; and as for history it will limit his life story to the dash between two dates. Lean and arrogant, with some poisonous pun ever ready to fork out and quiver at you, and with a strange look of expectancy in his dull brown veiled eyes, this false wag had, I daresay, an irresistible effect on small rodents. Having mastered the art of verbal invention to perfection, he particularly prided himself on being a weaver of words, a title he valued higher than that of a writer; personally, I never could understand what was the good of thinking up books, of penning things that had not really happened in some way or other; and I remember once saying to him as I braved the mockery of his encouraging nods that, were I a writer, I should allow only my heart to have imagination, and for the rest rely upon memory, that long-drawn sunset shadow of one's personal truth.

I had known his books before I knew him; a faint disgust was already replacing the - Author: Vladimir Nabokov
Personal Truth quotes by Vladimir Nabokov
#4. When you start putting pen to paper, you see a side of your personal truth that doesn't otherwise reveal itself in conversation or thought. - Author: Anthony Kiedis
Personal Truth quotes by Anthony Kiedis
#5. Truth is an ideal we aspire to. Fact is an agreement on the general consensus of what truth is. Honesty is a personal truth shared. - Author: Stewart Stafford
Personal Truth quotes by Stewart Stafford
#6. I like the multiplicity of books, because each book is different in the mind of each reader. It's the same with this film - if 300 people are in a cinema watching it, they will all see a different film, so in a way there are thousands of different versions of "Caché (Hidden)". The point being that, despite what TV shows us, and what the news stories tell us, there is never just one truth, there is only personal truth. - Author: Michael Haneke
Personal Truth quotes by Michael Haneke
#7. So for me the essence of life is very simple. It is just this, awareness that allows us to trust in our own truths (without feeling any need to convince others), living gracefully amidst the chaos, maintaining a sense of balance (not being pulled around by the supposed opposites or false paradoxes), and being able to choose how we direct our lives. - Author: Julia Woodman
Personal Truth quotes by Julia Woodman
#8. To think because you have been "saved" that you are now sane is insanity. God doesn't fix the mind. He only gives you opportunities to have moments of clarity. It is your job to climb the mountain and see above the clouds for yourself, not to believe the congregation's interpretation of the view. - Author: Shannon L. Alder
Personal Truth quotes by Shannon L. Alder
#9. Perhaps I can follow a heroic existential nihilist's sterling example of surviving the harshness of reality by employing an attentive narrative examination of my recalcitrant life to extract shards of personal truth and elicit a synthesizing purposefulness of my being from the darkness, anarchy, and chaos of existence. Perhaps through the act of engaging in a deliberative examination of the ontological mystery of being and investigating the accompanying stark brutal doubt that renders a materialistic life intolerably senseless, absurd, and meaningless, I can confront the baffle of being and establish a guiding set of personal values to live by in an indifferent world. Perhaps by using the contemplative tools of narrative storytelling, I can strictly scrutinize the key leaning rubrics veiled within an array of confusing personal life experiences. Perhaps by engaging in a creative act of discovery I can blunt the pain and anguish that comes from the nightmarish experience of suffering from an existential crisis. - Author: Kilroy J. Oldster
Personal Truth quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#10. There are many things in your heart you can never tell to another person. They are you, your private joys and sorrows, and you can never tell them. You cheapen yourself, the inside of yourself, when you tell them. - Author: Greta Garbo
Personal Truth quotes by Greta Garbo
#11. The world is full of confusion and contradiction. We cannot expect to do anything that is absolutely right. We can only measure rightness by the truth within ourselves. And our own truth will never be quite the same as somebody else's. - Author: Jay Woodman
Personal Truth quotes by Jay Woodman
#12. What you think of me is none of my business. Anyone can think anything they want about you, and it has absolutely NO impact on your personal life or well-being because it is impossible for them to think for you. The thoughts and opinions of others have no power over us unless we choose to believe them and make them part of our personal truth. - Author: Habib Sadeghi
Personal Truth quotes by Habib Sadeghi
#13. In order to become whole we must try, in a long process, to discover our own personal truth, a truth that may cause pain before giving us a new sphere of freedom. If we choose instead to content ourselves with intellectual "wisdom," we will remain in the sphere of illusion and self-deception. - Author: Alice Miller
Personal Truth quotes by Alice Miller
#14. The first duty of every Starfleet officer is to the truth, whether it's scientific truth or historical truth or personal truth! It is the guiding principle on which Starfleet is based! If you can't find it within yourself to stand up and tell the truth about what happened, you don't deserve to wear that uniform! - Author: Ronald D. Moore And Naren Shankar
Personal Truth quotes by Ronald D. Moore And Naren Shankar
#15. We might feel that we must demonstrate explicitly when we're upset, or not upset. This perceived need may stem from our family of origin, from how we learned to be heard when a simple "no" wasn't enough. We may have learned to mask certain feelings, or portray feelings that weren't ours. But as adults we each need to learn to state our personal truth without having to prove it or shout it. - Author: Alexandra Katehakis
Personal Truth quotes by Alexandra Katehakis
#16. Oh what a feeling when you happen upon a book that seems to pour truth directly into your head. - Author: Garry Fitchett
Personal Truth quotes by Garry Fitchett
#17. The moment we begin to define others and ourselves by how we are different, the seeds of separation are planted. - Author: Kim H. Krisco
Personal Truth quotes by Kim H. Krisco
#18. Having gained experience, you can help others and discover your destination and unique gift - Author: Sunday Adelaja
Personal Truth quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#19. I value and honor the way that my suffering brings me to further search and surrender. - Author: Maureen Brady
Personal Truth quotes by Maureen Brady
#20. Sirs, if you are listening and are not acting, it is like a man who is always tilling but never sowing. It is better not to listen to a truth than to listen without acting, for then it becomes a poison. - Author: Jiddu Krishnamurti
Personal Truth quotes by Jiddu Krishnamurti
#21. But I think that so many of the rest of us do what we can to avoid this math because if we do the subtraction, do the addition, our own personal sum will be unbearable sorrow, terror, and a feeling of being entirely out of control. I think many of us do what we can to avoid this math because we know that if we do the subtraction, do the addition, our psyches and our consciences and our lives will forever be changed; and we know that no matter how fierce the momentum that leads to this subtraction and addition, no matter our fears that we may be crushed (or perhaps more fearsome, ridiculed), that we will be led in some way to oppose the subtraction of life and the addition of toxics to this planet that is our only home. - Author: Derrick Jensen
Personal Truth quotes by Derrick Jensen

Personal Truth quotes by J.M. Coetzee
#24. Only the difference between truth and lies, courage and cowardice. - Author: J.K. Rowling
Personal Truth quotes by J.K. Rowling
#25. The church must reckon with the reality that ever since black people were stolen from Africa and trafficked to this land, they have been dehumanized, abused, criminalized, incarcerated, exploited for profit, and governed in distinctively sinister ways. This oppression has been personal, institutional, systemic, and legislative. It has been authorized and sanctioned by our local, state, and federal government. As the church, do we have the wherewithal to confront the austere reality that our national economy has been subsidized by a criminal justice system that is, and has been, predicated on the exploitation of cheap labor extracted from poor, racially profiled people of color? - Author: Dominique DuBois Gilliard
Personal Truth quotes by Dominique DuBois Gilliard
#26. When all 'first impressions' have fallen flat on their face! Re-orchestrate the mind to get 'second impressed'! - Author: Abha Maryada Banerjee
Personal Truth quotes by Abha Maryada Banerjee

Personal Truth quotes by Vivian Gornick
#28. Science is a set of rules to keep us from telling lies to each other. All scientists really have is a reputation for telling the truth. - Author: Isaac Asimov
Personal Truth quotes by Isaac Asimov
#29. Truthfulness. He will never willingly tolerate an untruth, but will hate it as much as he loves truth ... And is there anything more closely connected with wisdom than truth? - Author: Plato
Personal Truth quotes by Plato
#30. Christianity, Christ, heaven, hell, the judgment, sin, holiness, God,
these, and whether they be true, or false, and our personal relations to them, whether they be right or wrong, are things to know about, not to be doubting or guessing about. - Author: Herrick Johnson
Personal Truth quotes by Herrick Johnson
#31. You want me to be truthful.. for your convenience.. but in turn.. you consider to be mendacious for your own convenience.. !! Gr8..!! - Author: Abhijeet Sawant
Personal Truth quotes by Abhijeet Sawant
#32. The 'finely polished word' of Hans Fritzsche was as effective as the surgeon's knife in cutting through the putrefying tissue of lies and laying bare the truth. - Author: Hans Fritzsche
Personal Truth quotes by Hans Fritzsche

Personal Truth quotes by Seth

Personal Truth quotes by Niels Bohr
#36. But for me, my personal relations, my personal family relations, are very important, and we've always tried to make sure that the public and the private are kept separate. - Author: David Miliband
Personal Truth quotes by David Miliband
#37. The truth is that I understood very little of what she was saying. Before Alex, what thrills I'd experienced I'd found in my imagination, the result of burying myself in book after book. I depended, I mean, on escape for my various joys. It had never occurred to me that real life might offer the smallest portion of the happiness I found in reading, the ordinary scaffolding of my day to day a thing I'd made a habit of burying under a thousand imagined lives, each more inviting than the last. And then she came along and it was as though life were a Christmas tree and I'd discovered the hidden switch, the whole thing lighting up in a blaze of color. - Author: Aria Beth Sloss
Personal Truth quotes by Aria Beth Sloss
#38. All powerful and lasting change, whether in your personal life or your business, comes from the heart, not the mind. - Author: Tonya Sheridan
Personal Truth quotes by Tonya Sheridan
#39. [I]f the policy of the Government, upon vital questions affecting, the whole people is to be irrevocably fixed by decisions of the Supreme Court, the instant they are made, in ordinary litigation between parties in personal actions, the people will have ceased, to be their own rulers, having, to that extent, practically resigned their Government, into the hands of that eminent tribunal. - Author: Abraham Lincoln
Personal Truth quotes by Abraham Lincoln
#40. Science enhances the moral value of life, because it furthers a love of truth and reverence - love of truth displaying itself in the constant endeavor to arrive at a more exact knowledge of the world of mind and matter around us, and reverence, because every advance in knowledge brings us face to face with the mystery of our own being. - Author: Max Planck
Personal Truth quotes by Max Planck
#41. Here's a tip. If you touch a girl, even as joke, and she pushes you off, leave ... her ... alone. Don't touch her. Anywhere! Just stop. Your touch does nothing but sicken her. - Author: Jay Asher
Personal Truth quotes by Jay Asher
#42. Enhance and intensify one's vision of that synthesis of truth and beauty which is the highest and deepest reality. - Author: Ovid
Personal Truth quotes by Ovid
#43. If I could just open my mouth wide enough
to allow those gagging blobs of truth
their slow, tar-seep passage
up through my gullet,
with barely enough oxygen to keep from
passing out
while they glorp over my tongue,
those truths would reach my teeth,
where if my jaw weren't unhinged,
I might bite them off
so I could
breathe again. - Author: Thalia Chaltas
Personal Truth quotes by Thalia Chaltas
#44. I destroyed myself because I thought no one will destroy me that way but I guess I was wrong ... they're stonger. - Author: Marivil
Personal Truth quotes by Marivil

Personal Truth quotes by Debasish Mridha

Personal Truth quotes by Diane Ackerman
#47. Peace is not the absence of poverty
But the presence of love for beauty - Author: Debasish Mridha
Personal Truth quotes by Debasish Mridha

Personal Truth quotes by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
#50. When I'd heard 'abuse', I'd thought of violence as being something simple... I hadn't even considered the framework that allowed it to happen in the first place. The blind eyes turned, the excuses made, the insidious lies whispered into the ear of a child so desperate for love they mistook a gentle tone for truth. - Author: Sara (Barnard) Harris
Personal Truth quotes by Sara (Barnard) Harris
