He fears men more than God…

He who for fear of any power hides the truth, provokes the wrath of God to come upon him, for he fears men more than God.

Augustine, quoted in Stand Fast In the Way of Truth by Douglas Bond, p. 240

Unless we love the truth…

Truth is so obscure in these times, and falsehood so established, that, unless we love the truth, we cannot know it.

Blaise Pascal, quoted in Jesus in An Age of Controversy by Douglas Groothuis, p. 15

They turn out to believe in truth…

For my part I confess to finding it curious that those who claim that there is no such thing as truth expect me to believe that what they are saying is true! Perhaps I misunderstand them, but they seem to exempt themselves from their general rubric that there is no such thing as truth when they are either speaking to me or writing their books. They turn out to believe in truth after all.

They love truth when…

They love truth when it enlightens them, they hate it when it accuses them.

Augustine, quoted in Why Good Arguments Often Fail by James Sire, p. 119

Art is speech, and speech is ultimately impossible where there is no absolute existential relation to truth.

D. S. Savage, quoted in Truth Decay by Douglas Groothuis, 245
