September 15

The biggest obstacles to understanding the truth are lies disguised as truth.


In real life illusions can only transform our life for a moment, but in the domain of thoughts and the intellect, misconceptions may be accepted as truth for thousands of years, and make a laughingstock of whole nations, mute the noble wishes of mankind, make slaves from people and lie to them. These misconceptions are the enemies with which the wisest men in the history of mankind try to struggle. The force of the truth is great, but its victory is difficult. However, once you receive this victory, it can never be taken from you.

— Arthur Schopenhauer


The exposure of a lie is as valuable to a community as a clearly expressed truth.


Freeing a person from misconceptions, false truths, and lies does not take anything from him; it gives him something important.

— Arthur Schopenhauer


The progress of mankind is in revealing obstacles which are hiding from us.
