The Truth By Which All Else Is True

Men love the truth when it bathes them in its light: they hate it when it proves them wrong. Because they hate to be deceived themselves, but are glad if they can deceive others, they love the truth when it is revealed to them but hate it when it reveals that they are wrong… This is precisely the behaviour of the human mind… It loves to lie concealed, yet it wishes that nothing should be concealed from it. Its reward is just the opposite of its desire, for it cannot conceal itself from the truth, but the truth remains hidden from it… It shall be happy if it learns to ignore all that distracts it and to rejoice in truth, the sole Truth by which all else is true.
