    Always valuable, but nowadays an essential value. This thread will share what sages have taught about the need for truth:

    What we have in us of the image of God is the love of truth and justice.

    Demosthenes

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

    Any one entrusted with power will abuse it if not also animated with the love of truth and virtue, no matter whether he be a prince, or one of the people.

    Every one wishes to have truth on his side, but it is not every one that sincerely wishes to be on the side of truth.

    The virtue of truth is ... it has the advantage of never having been tried.

    The least initial deviation from the truth is multiplied later a thousandfold.

    The first law for the historian is that he shall never dare utter an untruth. The second is that he shall suppress nothing that is true. Moreover, there shall be no suspicion of partiality in his writing, or of malice.

    Cicero
