Reader comments about this quote:
I don't know about "often" and, what information is being referenced? By way of example, some religions convey a strict truth better than others with only the most ardent of patrons conveying further the exacting or correct information. AND, in the case of the occupying statist theocracy infesting this land, it is the prime directive to follow the admonitions of Joseph Goebbels: If you repeat a lie often enough, it becomes the truth." - "If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it"; or similarly, Vladimir Lenin's: "A lie told often enough becomes the truth." - Within such atmosphere, strict truth has little to no medium to convey and no persons that may relate or accept.

    The existence of Truth is discrete from, and not a function of, faculties of human apprehension.

    The Truth is Self Existent, Self Evident and immutable.

    Honesty is the quiddity of the aforementioned quote.

    Truth seekers start with becoming aware of the lies they tell themselves -- the revelation itself casts them out. Truth sets us free from the bondage of a false reality. What remains? Ultimately the world asks me who I am, and from the day I came into this world, people have been telling me what the answer is. My answer will either be a parroting of others or a declaration of my own. Getting to that place is called 'liberation' as well as 'taking responsibility.' It is an empowering place to come from.
