The world is upheld by the veracity of good men: they make the earth wholesome. They who lived with them found life glad and nutritious. Life is sweet and tolerable only in our belief in such society.
Thomas Henry Huxley
There is no alleviation for the sufferings of mankind except veracity of thought and of action, and the resolute facing of the world as it is when the garment of make-believe by which pious hands have hidden its uglier features is stripped off.
Robert Green Ingersoll
Hope is the only universal liar who never loses his reputation for veracity.
François, duc de La Rochefoucauld
The veracity which increases with old age is not far from folly.
