The One Truth of Reality
The one single truth of reality is not measured or distinguished -- it is the
ultimate paradox. The journey by which one achieves this truth can be a journey
of increasing realizations of paradoxes, and finally, freedom from the bubble of
limitation of a mind that would pe
What is Truth?
Four values above all are the key to ultimate happiness and contentment and are evident in the first paragraph of “The Sound of Laughter”. Here it reads:
“My memory when I’m gone will be colorful, rich, full of happiness and light.…they will see a b
What is Truth?
Truth exists and is an absolute. Contrary to the mush-minded meanderings of modern educators, truth is not relative. If my truth differs from your truth that can only be because either one or both of us is unaware of the truth and has called something true which is not. Truth

Truth and Hypocrisy In Animal Farm and The Scarlet Letter
Lies are often distorted into truth by those in power, who eventually become hypocrites
as they continue to delude for selfish gain. In the process of this distortion, they will do
everything possible to conceal and maintain
I agree with the statement "honesty is the best policy". People will be able to trust people who are honest, liars will have rumors spread around about them, and it's just plain easier to tell the truth. Nobody likes people who lie all the time and won't know whether to trust them or not. People
Television as a media has long been associated with the ambitions of democracy, public information and free speech. The recent television coverage of the two Gulf Wars and the resulting Iraq social and political crisis has raised questions about truth and reality in television ideas central to a
The Improbable Probable Truth
Beowulf, Grendel and The Thirteenth Warrior are all entirely different takes on Grendel’s war with the Danes. In the book Grendel by John Gardner, Grendel’s isolation contributes to his lack of intelligence and disregard of other’s opinion, making John Gardner’
Living in the world these days is really hard because people are no longer honest with each other. Being dishonest always causes problems that can lead to someone getting offended. It seems that in everyday life there is something someone can always lie about. In my opinion, I think lying is wrong a
The Truth Cannot Set you Free
The Crucible, written by Arthur Miller, is a tragic story of injustice suffered by an innocent community who are subjected to the hypocritical, prideful judges of their trial. These Judges use their power to eliminate evidence of their mistakes and return thei
On Truth and Lie in an Extra-Moral Sense
In some remote corner of the universe, poured out and glittering in innumerable solar systems, there once was a star on which clever animals invented knowledge. That was the highest and most mendacious minute of "world history"yet only a minute.
Honesty in the Business World

Honesty is the best policy
Honesty is the best policy. As children, we hear this old saying everywhere; from our parents, teachers, and even see it in countless stories and fables. Although I was taught to be honest all my life, it was not until 3rd grade when I finally realized the truth in thi

“The things we conceive very clearly and very distinctly are all TRUE” – Rene Descartes
Sneha: Belief in fairies is highly questionable. There is no evidence to suggest that they exist and no body has seen it. So it is ridiculous for you to believe in them.
John: Well, that fairies exis
The Truth About Truth
Truth is a very interesting concept to grasp, because of how much it’s misunderstood. Truth is an intangible and abstract idea; therefore it is not as solid or unchanging as it is thought to be. Ironically, truth is not absolute but it is subjective and is only metaphorical
Laws of Life
Someone once said, "Tomorrow is promised to no one. Live each day as though it is your last, dream as though your life has barely begun, and make your dreams your reality." This is an example of a law of life. What are laws of life? There are many laws in this world, but not all of th
In the poem "Dulce et Decorum Est" by Wilfred Owen, an appalling picture combined with its gruesome reality is painted through the use of simile and metaphor which brings out its theme in full relief. Rather than softening and humanizing the atrocity of the war by composing a poetry that flows elega
"I want to keep the thing stirring, now that the ice is cracked."(Encyclopedia Britannica; online sources: spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk) A great woman, mother, African American, abolitionist, and freedom fighter by the name of Sojourner Truth said this. She helped black Americans and especially black w
It was my aunt who taught me the meaning of honesty. Not because she actually was honest, but because she lied all the time. I think she felt that the easiest way out of any given situation was generally the best way out. For her, that meant telling a lie that sounded believable. As a young chil

In both "Othello" and "Oedipus Rex" to a great extent, the emotions provoked by familiar human experiences are acceptable to all people of all times. It is a fact that "Human nature remains the same (Kiernan Ryan 1989)." Both plays explore issues surrounding emotions like love, envy, jealousy and pr
"And, behold, one came and said unto Him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life? And He said unto him, Why callest thou me good?

What exactly is truth? That sounds like a simple enough question, yet answering is not so simple. As I was researching, I found out that it has several different meanings. One of Thomas Jefferson's outlook on truth is "Truth is certainly a branch of morality and a very important one to society."
The Telling Truth to War
E.E. Cummings and Wilfred Owen both use their poetic nature to describe how they feel about war. Both poets use sarcasm in a manner that is easily understood by the reader. Many people today feel the same way both of these poets feel about war. They believe that it is
