TruthQuotes on Truth

The eternal puzzling questions have always been screw-drilling the minds of humans – “How have things come into being as they are now? What is the purpose of the existence of everything in the universe? Why is it so that certain things are lifeless and some bubble with life vitally, each with specific life span?  Why do the living beings, herbivorous or carnivorous, kill one another to keep themselves alive? Why should one become food for another? How to making a living without committing sins of harming plant life? What is the law of nature? Why do some species have physical analogy among themselves and why are they totally different from the rest of the world altogether? Why the heck should there be anything at all?”

Truth is the main matter of curiosity for great saints and eminent scholars equally, from times immemorial. Finding out the reality of everything around us and about us has always been the basic concern for highly revered sages, erudite intellectuals and even every layman born on the earth. Ever since the beginning of human life on the blue planet, the mysteriousness of everything around us has been nagging the mind of man, incessantly. The involuntary psychological urge to seek truth has been common to all humans from pre-historic days.

In the quest for truth, people have divided themselves unknowingly into two distinct groups viz., the one that adopted the path of theism and the other which took upon itself the mission of finding the truth about everything in the universe with unfettered determination solely on the basis of logic, rationalism and stark reasoning.

Usefulness Of Truth To Mankind:

The outstanding conspicuous progress in civilisation leading the Neanderthal man to the present day man is mainly attributed to the steadfast adherence of human mind to seeking truth relentlessly. Prompt recurrence of days and nights, ever-existing phenomenon of birth, growth and death of flora and fauna, regular cycle of climatic seasons, appearance of sun, moon and the stars in the sky with an enigmatic definite rhythm etc., though seemed incomprehensible initially have in fact helped humans to achieve progress and improve the quality of life gradually over a period of several centuries. The unending quest for truth has widened the horizons of human intelligence. It has resulted in evolution of different streams of knowledge; languages, agriculture, geology, metallurgy, astronomy, mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology, commerce etc.

While the fastidious reasoning has made the people hard core rationalists and devoted scientists, the other group of people who ascribed every incomprehensible event to the whims and fancies of an imaginary invisible power called “God” segregated itself aside and self-categorised as “theists”. Although the so-called theists gave birth to many generations of highly intelligent sages who claimed to have seen God by rigorous practice of non-stop marathonic meditation for years at a stretch, preached their disciples the significance of high morals, self-denial, abstinence from mundane pleasures, austerity, non-violence, lofty ethics for attainment of salvation or ultimate merger of individual souls into divinity, marking the ceremonious permanent end of life cycle.

Though it is quite undeniable that the sages who are regarded  the purest devoted souls of God  of highest degree have propounded theories mainly based on hypothetical assumptions, the rules and tenets set by them have become the standard norms for preventing major chunk of mankind from resorting to criminal activities. Highly revered hermits may not have proved convincingly the existence of God; but they have certainly established the methods of peaceful co-existence, upholding the principles of mutual help, kind-heartedness, nurturing the sentiments of mutual affection on another. It is preached by them that any act of sin would attract the severest punishment in the celestial world called “hell” and the people of noble virtues would be invited to the abode of “heaven”. Though the concept of undergoing punishment in hell seemed esoteric, the fear of sin (or, in modern times, the fear of punishment in a court of law) has certainly made the mankind to remain innocuous to the fellow humans and other living beings to a major extent. The entire world is what it is today primarily because of the golden principles of ethics laid down by the sacred souls constantly seeking divine salvation.

The role of both pantheists as well as hard-core eminent educationist scholars is equally and absolutely brilliant. While the sages have strengthened the moral code of conduct duly making the world immune from the possible premature apocalypse, the super intellectual scholars have been accelerating the progress of human civilisation with a remarkably astounding speed.   Sages and priests have protected the world by the doctrine of humanitarian philosophy; scientists and geniuses of other streams of knowledge have led the world to make progress by leaps and bounds.

Both sages and scientists have a common objective. They go ahead in search of truth; only their paths are different. Though their final goal seems still illusory, their efforts have always resulted in human weal and welfare. Adherence to truth is looked upon as one of the highest virtues in the world because being truthful strengthens the credibility and dependability of an individual. Advancement of research is possible, only if the researchers strictly cling to truthfulness in their work.

Truth alone can explain about a thing, a situation, a person, the possibility of an occurrence, however good or bad, with the highest degree of accuracy. Falsehood would vanish like ethereal clouds, even if it may appear mind-grabbing for some time. It can never stand the test of time. The virtue of truth solidifies the admirability of human character and undeniably reinforces the trustworthiness.

The facts of reality clearly enable us to distinguish between criminals and perpetrators from the innocent. A judge in a court of law heavily depends on the real facts of every case to deliver the most justified verdict. For innocent people to receive justice, the true course of events should be brought to the notice of Judge in the court of law. In order mete out proper punishment to the offenders, fraudsters, crooked felons, anti-social elements etc., the correct facts of the cases should form the basis of rigid analysis, unyielding to any bias.


Truthful nature highlights the sincerity of a person; it manifests the purest form of virtue in the character of any individual. It is no wonder that the maxim “TRUTH IS GOD” is regarded by many as one of the golden principles of flawless behaviour and an admirable cult of living.
