To exist is to change, to change is to mature, to mature is to go on creating oneself endlessly.

On the side of truth

Truth is often harsh. But truth is never your enemy.

Even in the worst of circumstances, it’s better to know the truth than to hide from it. When the choices are difficult and painful, still you’re better off knowing clearly what they are.

Truth empowers you to be effective in creating the best outcomes. Truth enables you to forge solid, valuable and enduring connections with others.

Pretending that a particular truth does not exist won’t make it go away. Doing so will render you less able to deal with that truth.

The sooner you discover the truth of a particular situation and acknowledge it, the sooner you can put it to positive use. Your actions bring the best results when you are acting on the truth.

Keep yourself firmly on the side of truth. As difficult and inconvenient as it can often be, truth is how you move forward.

— Ralph Marston
