Truisms quotes by Siri Hustvedt

Truisms quotes by M. Judeth Nelson

Truisms quotes by Noam Chomsky
#4. Still, in summing up the situation, we must not forget that the New Left expresses certain truths and truisms and provides us with not a few straws in the wind. However immature, destructive, sterile, and confused, it is a cry of anguish and protest against a mechanized, profoundly leftish age. It is, in a sense, leftism to end all leftism. - Author: Erik Von Kuehnelt-Leddihn
Truisms quotes by Erik Von Kuehnelt-Leddihn
#5. Follow the rules until you make them. - Author: Luke Green
Truisms quotes by Luke Green
#6. The Bible does not want to be neatly packaged into three-hundred-and-sixty-five-day increments. It does not want to be reduced to truisms and action points. It wants to introduce dissonance into your thinking, to stretch your understanding. It wants to reveal a mosaic of the majesty of God one passage at a time, one day at a time, across a lifetime. - Author: Jen Wilkin
Truisms quotes by Jen Wilkin
#7. The public, as a whole, does not demand or appreciate the pure expression of beauty. Its cultured members expect to find in poetry, if anything, repose from material and nervous anxiety; an apt or chiselled phrase strokes the appetites and tickles the imagination. The more general public merely enjoys its platitudes and truisms jerked on to the understanding in line and rhyme; truth put into metre sounds overwhelmingly true. - Author: Harold Monro
Truisms quotes by Harold Monro
#8. Where this age differs from those immediately preceding it is that a liberal intelligentsia is lacking. Bully-worship, under various disguises, has become a universal religion, and such truisms as that a machine-gun is still a machine-gun even when a "good" man is squeezing the trigger have turned into heresies which it is actually becoming dangerous to utter. - Author: George Orwell
Truisms quotes by George Orwell
#9. It is one of the truisms of politics that a conservative is often enough a former liberal who has been 'mugged by reality.' - Author: Frank Gaffney
Truisms quotes by Frank Gaffney
#10. The triangle of truisms, of father, mother and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it. - Author: Gilbert K. Chesterton
Truisms quotes by Gilbert K. Chesterton
#11. I know of only a few truisms, one being [that] if your parents didn't have children, you won't have children. Another is whenever you make a strength program easier, you will get weaker. - Author: Bill Starr
Truisms quotes by Bill Starr
#12. Nice is for people we forget. - Author: Tiffany Schmidt
Truisms quotes by Tiffany Schmidt
#13. Proverbs and truisms are for this reason dangerous, because they produce blindness or non-thought. - Author: Idries Shah
Truisms quotes by Idries Shah
#14. The things said most confidently by advanced persons to crowded audiences are generally those opposite to the fact; it is actually our truisms that are untrue. - Author: G.K. Chesterton
Truisms quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#15. This understanding of themselves as a people who wrestle with God and emerge from that wrestling with both a limp and a blessing informs how Jews engage with Scripture, and it ought to inform how Christians engage Scripture too, for we share a common family of origin, the same spiritual DNA. The biblical scholars I love to read don't go to the holy text looking for ammunition with which to win an argument or trite truisms with which to escape the day's sorrows, they go looking for a blessing, a better way of engaging life and the world, and they don't expect to escape that search unscathed. - Author: Rachel Held Evans
Truisms quotes by Rachel Held Evans
#16. Tarrasch's 'dogmas' are not eternal truisms, but merely instructional material presented in an accessible and witty form, those necessary rudiments from which one can begin to grasp the secrets of chess ... - Author: Garry Kasparov
Truisms quotes by Garry Kasparov
#17. The type of statements to avoid are indirect, open-ended suggestions, especially about feeling, and truisms or platitudes. Such statements induce a stuck feeling in clients with a compressed structure. They are inwardly trying to achieve the attitudes or actions suggested by the statements and simultaneously resisting and resenting them, while also feeling humiliated by the expectations implied in the statements and shameful of their resistance all at the same time. This reveals why the best intentioned therapist can end up with a client who makes little progress, seems bogged down, and makes the therapist feel ineffective. - Author: Elliot Greene
Truisms quotes by Elliot Greene
#18. cliches are truisms and all truisms are true - Author: Jack Kerouac
Truisms quotes by Jack Kerouac
#19. I think much sociopolitical art delivers truisms that are quite flat. - Author: Harland Miller
Truisms quotes by Harland Miller
#20. Now, to be sure, Mrs Varden thought, here is a perfect character. Here is a meek, righteous, thoroughgoing Christian, who, having mastered all these qualities, so difficult of attainment; who, having dropped a pinch of salt on the tails of all the cardinal virtues, and caught them everyone; makes light of their possession, and pants for more morality. For the good woman never doubted (as many good men and women never do), that this slighting kind of profession, this setting so little store by great matters, this seeming to say, 'I am not proud, I am what you hear, but I consider myself no better than other people; let us change the subject, pray' - was perfectly genuine and true. He so contrived it, and said it in that way that it appeared to have been forced from him, and its effect was marvellous.

Aware of the impression he had made - few men were quicker than he at such discoveries - Mr Chester followed up the blow by propounding certain virtuous maxims, somewhat vague and general in their nature, doubtless, and occasionally partaking of the character of truisms, worn a little out at elbow, but delivered in so charming a voice and with such uncommon serenity and peace of mind, that they answered as well as the best. Nor is this to be wondered at; for as hollow vessels produce a far more musical sound in falling than those which are substantial, so it will oftentimes be found that sentiments which have nothing in them make the loudest ringing in the world, and ar - Author: Charles Dickens
Truisms quotes by Charles Dickens
#21. When you die I bet you want real life, pure real life, eulogies that are unpoetic and messy, smeared with tears and truisms, cliched as hell, the kind of stuff a person means. - Author: Kate Hattemer
Truisms quotes by Kate Hattemer
#22. But no. There is a difference between the truth and what we wish were true. - Author: Patrick Rothfuss
Truisms quotes by Patrick Rothfuss
#23. I remembered a truism that I had always known: no woman need let a man know the contents of her mind. - Author: Karen Essex
Truisms quotes by Karen Essex
#24. There are two political truisms: Old people vote and Republicans eat their young. - Author: Eddie Whitlock
Truisms quotes by Eddie Whitlock
#25. What are you on?' said AJ. 'Leon's mum has died and you are determined to add to the total sum of misery by going out with the girlfriend of the nastiest piece of manhood that was ever assembled in the factory of life ... - Author: Sally Gardner
Truisms quotes by Sally Gardner

Truth is objective.
Truth is good.
Truth is a worthy goal of inquiry.
Truth is worth caring about for its own sake. - Author: Michael P. Lynch
Truisms quotes by Michael P. Lynch
#27. Unfortunately it's also true to say that good management is a bit like oxygen - it's invisible and you don't notice its presence until it's gone, and then you're sorry. - Author: Charles Stross
Truisms quotes by Charles Stross
#28. It ain't over 'til it's over. - Author: Yogi Berra
Truisms quotes by Yogi Berra
