#1. Every error pronounces judgment on itself when it attempts to apply its rules to the standard of truth. - Author: Lord Acton
Standard Of Truth quotes by Lord Acton
#2. Even a committed realist will concede that there are many situations where an absolute standard of truth is unavailable. And yet, confronted with such situations, we often continue to act as if right and wrong are the relevant yardsticks. - Author: Kathryn Schulz
Standard Of Truth quotes by Kathryn Schulz
#3. The error in positivism is that it takes as its standard of truth the contingently given division of labor, that between the science and social praxis as well as that within science itself, and allows no theory that could reveal the division of labor to be itself derivative and mediated and thus strip it of its false authority. - Author: Theodor Adorno
Standard Of Truth quotes by Theodor Adorno
#4. To be truly Catholic is not merely to be correct according to an abstractly universal standard of truth, but also and above all to be able to enter into the problems and the joys of all, to understand all, to be all things to all. - Author: Thomas Merton
Standard Of Truth quotes by Thomas Merton
#5. If proof were the standard of truth, fallacies would constitute the ultimate reality. - Author: Raheel Farooq
Standard Of Truth quotes by Raheel Farooq
#6. The Standard of Truth has been erected; no unhallowed hand can stop the work from progressing; persecutions may rage, mobs may combine, armies may assemble, calumny may defame, but the truth of God will go forth boldly, nobly, and independent, till it has penetrated every continent, visited every clime, swept every country, and sounded in every ear, till the purposes of God shall be accomplished, and the Great Jehovah shall say the work is done. - Author: Joseph Smith Jr.
Standard Of Truth quotes by Joseph Smith Jr.
#7. The laws of Nature are written in the language of mathematics. Math is a way to describe reality and figure out how the world works, a universal language that has become the gold standard of truth. In our world, increasingly driven by science and technology, mathematics is becoming, ever more, the source of power, wealth, and progress. Hence those who are fluent in this new language will be on the cutting edge of progress. - Author: Edward Frenkel
Standard Of Truth quotes by Edward Frenkel
#8. The difficulty is that, so long as unreason prevails, a solution of our troubles can only be reached by chance; for while reason, being impersonal, makes universal co-operation possible, unreason, since it represents private passions, makes strife inevitable. It is for this reason that rationality, in the sense of an appeal to a universal and impersonal standard of truth, is of supreme importance to the well-being of the human species. - Author: Bertrand Russell
Standard Of Truth quotes by Bertrand Russell
#9. A creature that cannot grasp the mutual exclusiveness of A and not A has no difficulty in lying; more than that, such a creature has not even any consciousness of lying, being without a standard of truth. - Author: Otto Weininger
Standard Of Truth quotes by Otto Weininger
#10. God's standard of truth entailed more than merely "not lying." In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus said, "You have heard it said ... but I say unto you." Jesus took the Old Testament laws to a deeper level of meaning and obedience, from the "letter of the Law" to the "Spirit of the Law." Following the letter of the law was the dead "religion" of which Barth, among others, had written. It was man's attempt to deceive God into thinking one was being obedient, which was a far greater deception. God always required something deeper than religious legalism. - Author: Eric Metaxas
Standard Of Truth quotes by Eric Metaxas
#11. Reality is that which exists; the unreal does not exist; the unreal is merely that negation of existence which is the content of a human consciousness when it attempts to abandon reason. Truth is the recognition of reality; reason, man's only means of knowledge, is his only standard of truth. - Author: Ayn Rand
Standard Of Truth quotes by Ayn Rand
#12. If you are of the truth, if you have learned the truth, if you see the sanctity of the truth, then speak truth. We are not called to be deceivers or liars. God is a God of truth, and His people are called to have an enormously high standard of truth. - Author: R.C. Sproul
Standard Of Truth quotes by R.C. Sproul
#13. The word "canon" is derived from a Hebrew word signifying "reed" (qaneh) and by extension "measuring stick." It enters into the Greek language as "canon" (kanon) with a wider semantic range signifying exemplary standards in relation to literary works, grammatical rules, and even certain human beings. The word was coined in the early church to indicate an absolutely authoritative, complete list of God-inspired books, which was the standard of truth (Athanasius, 39th Festal Letter). Although such a list was considered closed, it is clear that the creation of the canon did not happen in an instant. It had a long and complex history before such closure occurred. The historian Josephus (AD 95) describes a closed list of inspired books that had been authoritative for all Jews for centuries (Against Apion 8). - Author: J. Daniel Hays
Standard Of Truth quotes by J. Daniel Hays
#14. A spiritual teaching is a finger pointing toward Reality; it is not Reality itself. To be in a true and mature relationship with a spiritual teaching requires you to apply it, not simply believe in it. Belief leads to various forms of fundamentalism and shuts down the curiosity and inquiry that are essential to open the way for awakening and what lies beyond awakening. A good spiritual teaching is something that you work with and apply. In doing so, it works on you (often in a hidden way) and helps reveal to you the Truth (and falseness) that lies within you. - Author: Adyashanti
Standard Of Truth quotes by Adyashanti
#15. Ah! Gentle, gracious Dove,
And art thou grieved in me,
That sinners should restrain thy love,
And say, "It is not free:
It is not free for all:
The most, thou passest by,
And mockest with a fruitless call
Whom thou hast doomed to die."

They think thee not sincere
In giving each his day,
" Thou only draw'st the sinner near
To cast him quite away,
To aggravate his sin,
His sure damnation seal:
Thou show'st him heaven, and say'st, go in
And thrusts him into hell."

Worthy of whence it came!
Forgive their hellish blasphemy
Who charge it on the Lamb:
Whose pity him inclined
To leave his throne above,
The friend, and Saviour of mankind,
The God of grace, and love.

O gracious, loving Lord,
I feel thy bowels yearn;
For those who slight the gospel word
I share in thy concern:
How art thou grieved to be
By ransomed worms withstood!
How dost thou bleed afresh to see
Them trample on thy blood!

To limit thee they dare,
Blaspheme thee to thy face,
Deny their fellow-worms a share
In thy redeeming grace:
All for their own they take,
Thy righteousness engross,
Of none effect to most they make
The merits of thy cross.

Sinners, abhor the fiend:
His other gospel hear -
"The God of truth did not intend
The thing his words declare,
He - Author: Charles Wesley
Standard Of Truth quotes by Charles Wesley
#16. Every church, yea, every truth and every good cause, has its martyrs, who stood the fiery trial and sacrificed comfort and life itself to their sacred convictions. The blood of martyrs is the seed of toleration; toleration is the seed of liberty; and liberty is the most precious gift of God to every man who has been made in his image and redeemed by Christ. - Author: Philip Schaff
Standard Of Truth quotes by Philip Schaff
#17. If only she could put them together, she felt, write them out in some sentence, then she would have got at the truth of things. - Author: Virginia Woolf
Standard Of Truth quotes by Virginia Woolf
#18. You're the insane one. You don't even love the world you created. So how can you expect us to love and respect you?
An endless repetition of natural destruction and stupid, meaningless wars. Because we don't understand it, we have no way to stop it.
We may be stupid and not know what to do ... But we fight to move forward towards that which we think is right. Not just sticking to the arbitrary boundaries you created.
We make lots of mistakes, and get hurt ... But we keep believing in miracles. Looking for a truth we can't yet see.
We do it our own way. Because we believe our lives mean something. - Author: Kaori Yuki
Standard Of Truth quotes by Kaori Yuki
#19. I've had the best time! The spirit here is incredible. It's competitive, to be sure, but everyone supports each other. I was getting advice from men I was about to go against right up to the very moment the competitions began."
"That's wonderful," Joanna said and handed him a mug of lemonade. "You look absolutely awful."
"I showered," he replied, a bit defensively.
"She means the bruises," Kassandra said. She thought "awful" was going too far, for the truth was, he looked magnificent. He was a bit battered, however, as was to be expected. All the competitors were the same.
"These are nothing," he insisted, gesturing to the livid black-and-blue splotches with which he was adorned, and with the enthusiasm of a boy, added, "I won two silver bracelets. Here." He handed one to each of them and beamed as they put them on.
"Thank you," Joanna said sweetly and leaned over to kiss his cheek.
Kassandra stared at the bracelet, turning it round and round her wrist. In her quarters, there were chests fitted with silk-lined drawers that held precious jewels given to her because she was a princess. She wore them on occasion and enjoyed them. But never had she received anything so lovely as that simple silver bracelet won by sweat and skill in the Games.
"It's very nice," she said, and felt his gaze even as she refused to meet it. - Author: Josie Litton
Standard Of Truth quotes by Josie Litton
#20. Any profession of faith ... entrusts the mind and heart to a truth that cannot be proven but can be lived. - Author: Luke Timothy Johnson
Standard Of Truth quotes by Luke Timothy Johnson
#21. There is nothing so inconvenient in this world as an absolutely truthful person, who can both speak and write, and has the courage of his convictions. One can always arrange matters with liars ... But with the man or woman who holds truth dearer than life, and honor more valuable than advancement, there is nothing to be done, now that governments cannot insist on the hemlock-cure, as in the case of Socrates. - Author: Marie Corelli
Standard Of Truth quotes by Marie Corelli
#22. True ideas are those that we can assimilate, validate, corroborate, and verify. False ideas are those that we cannot. That is the practical difference it makes to us to have true ideas; that therefore is the meaning of truth, for it is all that truth is known as. - Author: William James
Standard Of Truth quotes by William James
#23. The truth is: I did want to be my dad's poem. I wanted to be his drawing, his novella, his most refined work of art. I wanted him to shape me with his love and intelligence. I wanted him to edit out my mistakes and many indulgences, with a sharp red pencil or a clean eraser. - Author: Alysia Abbott
Standard Of Truth quotes by Alysia Abbott
#24. People must not attempt to impose their own 'truth' on others. The right to profess the truth must always be upheld, but not in a way that involves contempt for those who may think differently. Truth imposes itself solely by the force of its own truth. - Author: Pope John Paul II
Standard Of Truth quotes by Pope John Paul II
#25. Somewhere along the line, a concert became a variety show. It was no longer enough for four dudes to play together in front of some guitar amps. Costume changes, an army of dancers, and Broadway theatrics suddenly became standard for a 'concert.' - Author: Shawn Amos
Standard Of Truth quotes by Shawn Amos
#26. When Corporate America finds a Jayson Blair in its midst, the standard operating procedure is to circle the wagons and deny that any form of liability extends up the chain of command. - Author: Gary Weiss
Standard Of Truth quotes by Gary Weiss
#27. I don't ever think about death. Not really, no more than a flicker of anxiety when I'm trying to merge on the highway or watching a news clip about some unfortunate girl my age. Even then, those are vague, passing ideas - not forty feet away with razor-sharp claws and angry teeth. But standing here, shaking with fear, I suddenly grasp the truth of it: the blood racing in my veins, the sharp tingle of my chilled skin, the intensity of every breath. This is my life. - Author: Abby McDonald
Standard Of Truth quotes by Abby McDonald
#28. Precisely because Marx was convinced that the cause of the proletariat was of decisive importance for the whole future of mankind, he wanted to create for that cause not a flimsy platform of rhetorical invective or wishful thinking, but the rock-like foundation of scientific truth. - Author: Ernest Mandel
Standard Of Truth quotes by Ernest Mandel
#29. Accent is the soul of language; it gives to it both feeling and truth. - Author: Jean-Jacques Rousseau
Standard Of Truth quotes by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
#30. Why should the illiterate man have this power, which the learned man has not? The illiterate one, through faith in Christ, has come into the atmosphere of pure, clear truth, while the learned man has turned away from the truth. - Author: Ellen G. White
Standard Of Truth quotes by Ellen G. White
#31. Science and Spirituality are two sides of the same coin and we cannot separate one from the other. Science is trying to find the truth in an objective or physical manner where as spirituality tries it subjectively or metaphysically. - Author: Thomas Vazhakunnathu
Standard Of Truth quotes by Thomas Vazhakunnathu
#32. Usually we walk around constantly believing ourselves. "I'm okay" we say. "I'm alright". But sometimes the truth arrives on you and you can't get it off. That's when you realize that sometimes it isn't even an answer
it's a question. Even now, I wonder how much of my life is convinced. - Author: Markus Zusak
Standard Of Truth quotes by Markus Zusak
#33. In this world, only those people who have fallen to the lowest degree of humiliation, far below beggary, who are not just without any social consideration but are regarded by all as being deprived of that foremost human dignity, reason itself - only those people, in fact, are capable of telling the truth. All the others lie. - Author: Simone Weil
Standard Of Truth quotes by Simone Weil
#34. Calvinism emphasizes divine sovereignty and free grace; Arminianism emphasizes human responsibility. The one restricts the saving grace to the elect; the other extends it to all men on the condition of faith. Both are right in what they assert; both are wrong in what they deny. If one important truth is pressed to the exclusion of another truth of equal importance, it becomes an error, and loses its hold upon the conscience. The Bible gives us a theology which is more human than Calvinism and more divine than Arminianism, and more Christian than either of them. - Author: Philip Schaff
Standard Of Truth quotes by Philip Schaff
#35. He seemed evidently more fond of controversy than of truth, and the whole turn of his conversation indicated that he derived his religious security rather from the adoption of a party, than from the implantation of a new principle. - Author: Hannah More
Standard Of Truth quotes by Hannah More
#36. Like it or not, we all carry the past of our country. The unresolved conflicts of race and class lay coiled, ready to erupt, unless we set our minds to an honest reckoning with that past and a search for solutions grounded in genuine truth and justice. Unlike the cursing anonymous voice on a telephone, or the menacing face, or the billy club that split John Lewis's head in Selma, Alabama, at the Edmund Pettus Bridge in 1965, implicit bias is hard to see; implicit bias is a silent snake that slinks around in ways we don't notice. - Author: Mitch Landrieu
Standard Of Truth quotes by Mitch Landrieu
#37. Dreams are the beauty, wealth, and splendors of life. - Author: Debasish Mridha
Standard Of Truth quotes by Debasish Mridha
#38. I believe every day when I wake up and go to bed and during my dreaming time there's some moment of truth that's in front of me that will always be in front of me until the end of days. - Author: Harvey Keitel
Standard Of Truth quotes by Harvey Keitel
#39. Reason and free inquiry are the only effectual agents against error. - Author: Thomas Jefferson
Standard Of Truth quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#40. Let me tell ye in your sleep how much I love you. For there's no so much I can be saying to ye while ye wake, but the same poor words, again and again. While ye sleep in my arms, I can say things to ye that would be daft and silly waking, and your dreams will know the truth of them. Go - Author: Diana Gabaldon
Standard Of Truth quotes by Diana Gabaldon
#41. No aching
Just numbness
That feeling as if
U miss him
But then you realized,
Maybe he wasn't yours
To begin with.
There were no memories
To Reminisce,
Only pain.
Because you knew
From the very beginning
He didn't love u as much
As you loved him.
And that isthe most painful
And crucial part.
Or maybe not.
Maybe it's the truth
That there is
Still an ounce of
Love that shouldn't
Be there at all.

Not after everything. - Author: Marianne Escobar
Standard Of Truth quotes by Marianne Escobar
#42. RELIGION is one's opinion and belief in some ethical truth. To be a Christian is to have the religion of Christ, and so to be a believer of Mohammed is to be a Mohammedan but there are so many religions that every man seems to be a religion unto himself. No two persons think alike, even if they outwardly profess the same faith, so we have as many religions in Christianity as we have believers. - Author: Marcus Garvey
Standard Of Truth quotes by Marcus Garvey
#43. A pure heart, open to the Light, will be filled with the elixir of Truth. - Author: Rumi
Standard Of Truth quotes by Rumi
#44. Anything short of the discipline and honesty of a true gold coin standard will inevitably self-destruct, consuming our wealth and liberties, and nurturing the omnipotent state. - Author: Lawrence Reed
Standard Of Truth quotes by Lawrence Reed
#45. This may account for Americans' overuse of the courts as a means of finding coherence and stability. As other institutions become unusable as mechanisms for the control of wanton information, the courts stand as a final arbiter of truth. For how long, no one knows. I - Author: Neil Postman
Standard Of Truth quotes by Neil Postman
#46. You, just as you are, and your life here, right now, are all there is and all you need to know. You don't have to do anything special. Mostly, you have to be open to meeting face to face, and even dancing with, the truth that pertains to your life right now. You have to find a way to collect your fractured pieces, examine them, and the accept them as part of who you are. Spiritual practice is about transformation, but it's also, and more importantly, about working with what is. - Author: Angel Kyodo Williams
Standard Of Truth quotes by Angel Kyodo Williams
#47. When lies are swarming and attacking me like a bunch of bloodthirsty mosquitoes, the best thing I can do is open God's Word and immerse myself in His truth. Lies flee in the presence of truth. - Author: Lysa TerKeurst
Standard Of Truth quotes by Lysa TerKeurst
#48. One of the main keys to understanding the purpose of your life; it is to ask yourself the question "What is an activity that I would do even if I am not paid - Author: Sunday Adelaja
