“The truth that makes men free is for the most part the truth which men prefer not to hear.” – Herbert Sebatien Agar
"Ah yes, truth. Funny how everyone is always asking for it but when they get it they don't believe it because it's not the truth they want to hear." – Helena Cassedine

This is because truth is generally unpleasing to us; they are contrary to our wishes and practices. We tend to follow our own interest and therefore, we are unwilling to hear that we are afraid to know. Truth is frequently defeated by our pride, obstinacy, greed and thoughtlessness.

“IT IS THE TRUTH FROM YOUR LORD, SO BE NOT YOU OF THOSE WHO WAVER."
