The world has its fling at lawyers sometimes, but its very denial is an admission. It feels, what I believe to be the truth, that of all secular professions this has the highest standards.Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr. Denial Of The Truth Sayings By Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.: The world has its fling at lawyers sometimes, but its very denial is an admission.
I am likely to fail if I have determined the cost as too high or my intelligence as too low. Yet, if I think about it, the real failure rests in believing either of these to be true.Craig D. Lounsbrough Denial Of The Truth Sayings By Craig D. Lounsbrough: I am likely to fail if I have determined the cost as too high or
So long as the priest, that denier, calumniator and poisoner of life by profession, still counts as a higher kind of human being, there can be no answer to the question: what is truth? One has already stood truth on its head when the conscious advocate of denial and nothingness counts as the representative of 'truthFriedrich Nietzsche Denial Of The Truth Sayings By Friedrich Nietzsche: So long as the priest, that denier, calumniator and poisoner of life by profession, still
Anything you believe you have to do or become before you can be free is a denial and distraction from the truth that you are already free.Alan Cohen Denial Of The Truth Sayings By Alan Cohen: Anything you believe you have to do or become before you can be free is
If you look at your average contemporary person, the potential for tragedy is immense. The people and things we love and value are strewn across the globe. Any number of health disasters can befall you or them.
The truth is depressing. We are going to die, most likely after illness; all our friends will likewise die; we are tiny insignificant dots on a tiny planet. Perhaps with the advent of broad intelligence and foresight comes the need for confabulation and self-deception to keep depression and its consequent lethargy at bay. There needs to be a basic denial of our finitude and insignificance in the larger scene. It takes a certain amount of chutzpah just to get out of bed in the morning.
William Hirstein Denial Of The Truth Sayings By William Hirstein: If you look at your average contemporary person, the potential for tragedy is immense. The
True adulthood would mean no longer denying the truth. It would mean feeling the repressed suffering, consciously acknowledging the story remembered by the body at an emotional level, and integrating that story instead of repressing it. Whether contact with the parents can then in fact be maintained will depend on the given circumstances in each individual case. What is absolutely imperative is the termination of the harmful attachment to the internalized parents of childhood, an attachment that, though we call it love, certainly does not deserve the name. It is made up of different ingredients, such as gratitude, compassion, expectations, denial, illusions, obedience, fear, and the anticipation of punishment. TimeAlice Miller Denial Of The Truth Sayings By Alice Miller: True adulthood would mean no longer denying the truth. It would mean feeling the repressed
It is indeed the truth of the traumatic experience that forms the center of its psychopathology; it is not a pathology of falsehood or displacement of meaning, but of history itself (p. 5)Cathy Caruth Denial Of The Truth Sayings By Cathy Caruth: It is indeed the truth of the traumatic experience that forms the center of its
The public response to feminism has been ferociously defensive precisely because feminism touches such a deep nerve of truth and the denial that keeps us from it. If feminism were truly ridiculous, it would be ignored. But it isn't ridiculous, and so provokes a vigorous backlash.Allan G. Johnson Denial Of The Truth Sayings By Allan G. Johnson: The public response to feminism has been ferociously defensive precisely because feminism touches such a
The human mind isn't a terribly logical or consistent place. Most people, given the choice to face a hideous or terrifying truth or to conveniently avoid it, choose the convenience and peace of normality. That doesn't make them strong or weak people, or good or bad people. It just makes them people.Jim Butcher Denial Of The Truth Sayings By Jim Butcher: The human mind isn't a terribly logical or consistent place. Most people, given the choice
I'm of the opinion that many Christians are in deep denial about the reality of there being 'real' Evil in this world. Evil that cannot be reasoned with; is reprobate, incorrigible, determined, un-appeasable, violent, murderous, and unrelenting. I find this denial shocking in that the Bible clearly shows that in the end this battle is all about Good vs. Evil. This is a very real and present danger to the leaders and people of Israel. They know the truth and are not in any denial about it!!! It's harsh, yes! However, it is Real and a danger to those in Israel. This is not my first rodeo!!! Combat brings me no joy!!! But, God has His holy warriors who risk their lives so others can have the luxury to live in denial!!! Israeli's have no such luxury!!!R. Alan Woods Denial Of The Truth Sayings By R. Alan Woods: I'm of the opinion that many Christians are in deep denial about the reality of
Nothing good ever comes out of denying the truth about our situation.Sarah Ban Breathnach Denial Of The Truth Sayings By Sarah Ban Breathnach: Nothing good ever comes out of denying the truth about our situation.
What about my patterns of denial, you ask? Well, you will soon read that once I found myself in repose, in Bordirtoun, for an extended period, certain truths about my character began to assert themselves. Truths I had long ignored, and soon, I would find myself deeper, embedded. You will find that I am similarly skilled at this Pong-ian art of denial. After all, I was the one who came halfway around the world, assuming that my father was telling the truth, knowing full well that he was a world-class liar and cheat.Leland Cheuk Denial Of The Truth Sayings By Leland Cheuk: What about my patterns of denial, you ask? Well, you will soon read that once
Like Pascal, Nietzsche, and Simone Weil, Kierkegaard is one of those writers whom it is very difficult to estimate justly. When one reads them for the first time, one is bowled over by their originality . . . and by the sharpness of their insights. . . . But with successive readings one's doubts grow, one begins to react against their overemphasis on one aspect of the truth at the expense of all the others, and one's first enthusiasm may all too easily turn to an equally exaggerated aversion. Of all such writers, one might say that one cannot imagine them as children. The more we read them, the more we become aware that something has gone badly wrong with their affective life; . . . it is not only impossible to imagine one of them as a happy husband or wife, it is impossible to imagine their having a single intimate friend to whom they could open their hearts.W. H. Auden Denial Of The Truth Sayings By W. H. Auden: Like Pascal, Nietzsche, and Simone Weil, Kierkegaard is one of those writers whom it is
Any denial of the facts is a denial of the truth. Holocaust deniers cling to Any revisionism for political purposes.A.E. Samaan Denial Of The Truth Sayings By A.E. Samaan: Any denial of the facts is a denial of the truth. Holocaust deniers cling to
Those who refuse to look at or give expression to the dark side of life are in denial-fear preventing passage through the door of growth, truth and, ultimately, wisdom.Laurence Overmire Denial Of The Truth Sayings By Laurence Overmire: Those who refuse to look at or give expression to the dark side of life
Christian Science ... is the direct denial both of science and of Christianity, for Science rests wholly on the recognition of truth and Christianity on the recognition of pain.Gilbert K. Chesterton Denial Of The Truth Sayings By Gilbert K. Chesterton: Christian Science ... is the direct denial both of science and of Christianity, for Science
It doesn't matter if the truth is right there out in front of your eyes. You will find a way, a mechanism, in order to keep your own system of denial. So as I always say it, denial is a river that runs in the - in Egypt. So we became very good in that.Bassem Youssef Denial Of The Truth Sayings By Bassem Youssef: It doesn't matter if the truth is right there out in front of your eyes.
After slipping on a negligee and making herself comfortable on the lounge, she became conscious that she was miserable and that the tears were rolling down her cheeks. She wondered if they were the tears of self-pity, and tried resolutely not to cry, but this existence without hope, without happiness, oppressed her, and she kept shaking her head from side to side, her mouth drawn down tremulously in the corners, as though she were denying the assertion made by some one, somewhere. She did not know that this gesture of hers was years older than history, that, for a hundred generations of men, intolerable and persistent grief has offered that gesture, of denial, of protest, of bewilderment, to something more profound, more powerful than the God made in the image of man, and before which that God, did he exist, would be equally impotent. It is a truth set at the heart of tragedy that this force never explains, never answers - this force intangible as air, more definite than death.F Scott Fitzgerald Denial Of The Truth Sayings By F Scott Fitzgerald: After slipping on a negligee and making herself comfortable on the lounge, she became conscious
The history written, taught, and sworn to as 'the unvarnished truth' by the establishment - any establishment, left or right, conservative or liberal, capitalist or socialist or fascist - is generally revisionist, narrow in perspective, monolithic, and agenda-driven. In the worst case, it consists of one part denial and one part propaganda - in other words, a self-serving pack of lies.Thomas W. Knowles Denial Of The Truth Sayings By Thomas W. Knowles: The history written, taught, and sworn to as 'the unvarnished truth' by the establishment -
Christine Gray wrote in her remarkable 1986 PhD dissertation, Thailand: The Soteriological State in the 1970s: Any study of contemporary Thai society must account for the U.S. influence on that polity and the mutual denial of that influence. Thailand's relationship with the United States is complex, heavily disguised and, in many instances, actively denied by the leaders of both countries... In many cases, it is difficult if not impossible to determine the extent of American influence in Thailand. Thailand is a nation of secrets: of secret bombings and air bases during the Vietnam War, of secret military pacts and aid agreements, of secret business transactions and secret ownership of businesses and joint venture corporations. This is precisely the point; the American presence has taken on powerful cosmological, religious and even mythic overtones. The American influence on the Thai economy and polity has become a symbol of uncertainty, of men's inability to know the truth.Andrew MacGregor Marshall Denial Of The Truth Sayings By Andrew MacGregor Marshall: Christine Gray wrote in her remarkable 1986 PhD dissertation, Thailand: The Soteriological State in the
Glancing over at Jon, he wondered whether their shaky, three-part arrangement would survive the truth of Baltsaros's compulsion. He scratched the back of his head, turning the metal collar as he thought. If it did spell the end, would he be made to choose? The thought sobered him, and he drifted closer to Jon's side as they walked towards the brightly lit inn. Tom reached out and let his knuckles graze Jon's arm, a hidden touch just to ground him for the span of a heartbeat. Maybe Jon would turn a blind eye. Maybe they'd continue to live in denial that they both loved a fucking monster. Jon smiled at the brief caress, and Tom felt his chest get tight. Love was a bloody, fucking headache.Bey Deckard Denial Of The Truth Sayings By Bey Deckard: Glancing over at Jon, he wondered whether their shaky, three-part arrangement would survive the truth
Here's what I think the truth is: We are all addicts of fossil fuels in a state of denial, about to face cold turkey.Kurt Vonnegut Denial Of The Truth Sayings By Kurt Vonnegut: Here's what I think the truth is: We are all addicts of fossil fuels in
There are two ways of attempting to deal with the appalling difficulties of choice on the higher ethical levels (Truth/beauty/goodness; family/country, war/peace, principles/persons.. ): (1) one can attempt to justify a one-sided choice, and this is what philosophies of value and religions attempt to do through reason and faith (feeling,) respectively. But this always founders or is never safe from foundering. (2) Or the dialectic can be squarely faced in the fact that no one-sided solution of it is ever justifiable by reason or by faith. And here enters the question not of acceptance or refusal, nor of affirmation or denial, but of letting-go. The letting-go, however, is limited, in life at least (and without taking death into account) by the boundary of ability to let go.Nanamoli Thera Denial Of The Truth Sayings By Nanamoli Thera: There are two ways of attempting to deal with the appalling difficulties of choice on
I'm terrified of learning the truth. About my mission. About Axton. About who I really am, and what I'm capable of doing. I'd rather stay in denial. Because if there's one thing I'm certain of, it's that I'm not going to like the truth of my apparent new reality.Siobhan Davis Denial Of The Truth Sayings By Siobhan Davis: I'm terrified of learning the truth. About my mission. About Axton. About who I really
In order to protect our emotional wounds, and because of our fear of being hurt, humans create something very sophisticated in the mind: a big denial system. In that denial system we become the perfect liars. We lie so perfectly that we lie to ourselves and we even believe our own lies. We don't notice we are lying, and sometimes even when we know we are lying, we justify the lie and excuse the lie to protect ourselves from the pain of our wounds. The denial system is like a wall of fog in front of our eyes that blinds us from seeing the truth. We wear a social mask because it's too painful to see ourselves or to let others see us as we really are. And the denial system lets us pretend that everyone believes what we want them to believe about us. We put up these barriers for protection, to keep other people away,Miguel Ruiz Denial Of The Truth Sayings By Miguel Ruiz: In order to protect our emotional wounds, and because of our fear of being hurt,
The individual benefits as an individual from his ability to deny the truth even though society as a whole, of which he is a part, suffers.Garrett Hardin Denial Of The Truth Sayings By Garrett Hardin: The individual benefits as an individual from his ability to deny the truth even though
As far as the education of children is concerned I think they should be taught not the little virtues but the great ones. Not thrift but generosity and an indifference to money; not caution but courage and a contempt for danger; not shrewdness but frankness and a love of truth; not tact but love for one's neighbor and self-denial; not a desire for success but a desire to be and to know.Natalia Ginzburg Denial Of The Truth Sayings By Natalia Ginzburg: As far as the education of children is concerned I think they should be taught
Denial may be neither a matter of telling the truth nor intentionally telling a lie. There seem to be states of mind, or even whole cultures, in which we know and don't know at the same time.Stanley Cohen Denial Of The Truth Sayings By Stanley Cohen: Denial may be neither a matter of telling the truth nor intentionally telling a lie.
The truth is: Everyone will judge you. But this depends upon your intellectual capacity whether you are able to distinguish constructive criticism between an insult coming from other people's opinions about you.Anonymous Denial Of The Truth Sayings By Anonymous: The truth is: Everyone will judge you. But this depends upon your intellectual capacity whether
A self-denial, no less austere than the saint's, is demanded of the scholar. He must worship truth, and forgo all things for that,and choose defeat and pain, so that his treasure in thought is thereby augmented.Ralph Waldo Emerson Denial Of The Truth Sayings By Ralph Waldo Emerson: A self-denial, no less austere than the saint's, is demanded of the scholar. He must
The fragility of crystal is not a weakness but a fineness. My parents understood that fine crystal glass had to be cared for or may be shattered. But when it came to my brother, they didn't seem to know or care that their course of their secret action brought the kind of devastation that could cut them. Their fraudulent marriage and our father's denial of his other son was for Chris a murder of every day's truth. He felt his whole life turned like a river suddenly reversing the direction of its flow. Suddenly running uphill. These revelations struck at the core of Chris's sense of identity. They made his entire childhood seem like fiction. Chris never told them he knew and made me promise silence as well.Jon Krakauer Denial Of The Truth Sayings By Jon Krakauer: The fragility of crystal is not a weakness but a fineness. My parents understood that
Are you always trying to get somewhere other than where you are so that you can finally be happy? The truth is that all unhappiness is caused by denial of the present.Robert Anthony Denial Of The Truth Sayings By Robert Anthony: Are you always trying to get somewhere other than where you are so that you
Mental and emotional freedom is not the denial of truth - it's the recognition that truth isn't something we need to run from or be afraid of.T.K. Coleman Denial Of The Truth Sayings By T.K. Coleman: Mental and emotional freedom is not the denial of truth - it's the recognition that
The crux of the worldview conflict ... is the denial of God's right to be God, and the usurpation of that right by man. In a word, it is a life or death struggle over _sovereignty_. Who will be sovereign- man or God?
If God has lost the authority to be sovereign over reality, if He has lost the authority to provide objective law, and if He has lost the authority to reveal absolute truth, then in the eyes of men, He has lost the right to be God. He has been stripped of His "God-ness," or the very attributes which make Him God.
At the same time, man is never content to be godless. He must have a god. Somebody or something must provide that authority. Thus, modern man gladly assumes that position, and humanist man becomes his own ultimate authority ... This is the Gettysburg of the worldview war of the 21st century.
Kevin Swanson Denial Of The Truth Sayings By Kevin Swanson: The crux of the worldview conflict ... is the denial of God's right to be
When the mind opens by speaking denials, this true Self that philosophers have so long striven to free shows itself all glorious with wisdom, strength, and holiness ... Denial of evil is a word of Truth.Myrtle Fillmore Denial Of The Truth Sayings By Myrtle Fillmore: When the mind opens by speaking denials, this true Self that philosophers have so long
After accepting the bitter truth of society, I set myself out to lead a life for myself entirely. I realized that the poisonous tentacles of society does not spare anyone, especially people like us. Once I realized that, I became strong from within.Santosh Avvannavar Denial Of The Truth Sayings By Santosh Avvannavar: After accepting the bitter truth of society, I set myself out to lead a life
Your observations and conclusions are mirrored illusions of your inner state of being, teaching you truth through falsehoods, strength through weakness and clarity through confusion. You are seeing your Self now, disguised as the world through a lens of denial, but you will soon come to realize that what you choose to deny in yourself manifests into your world. The flaws you see in your world are your most powerful teachers.Ka Chinery Denial Of The Truth Sayings By Ka Chinery: Your observations and conclusions are mirrored illusions of your inner state of being, teaching you
The attachment to parental figures I am trying to describe here is an attachment to parents who have inflicted injury on their children. It is an attachment that prevents us from helping ourselves. The unfulfilled natural needs of the child are later transferred to therapists, partners, or our own children. We cannot believe that those needs were really ignored, or possibly even trampled on by our parents in such a way that we were forced to repress them. We hope that the other people we relate to will finally give us what we have been looking for, understand, support, and respect us, and relieve us of the difficult decisions life brings with it. As these expectations are fostered by the denial of childhood reality, we cannot give them up. As I said earlier, they cannot be relinquished by an act of will. But they will disappear in time if we are determined to face up to our own truth. This is not easy. It is almost always painful. But it is possible. InAlice Miller Denial Of The Truth Sayings By Alice Miller: The attachment to parental figures I am trying to describe here is an attachment to
Deep down we all suspect that something is very wrong with the way we perceive life but we try very, very hard not to notice it. And the way we remain blind to our frightful condition is through an obsessive and pathological denial of being
as if some dreadful fate would overcome us if we were to face the pure light of truth and lay bare our fearful clinging to illusion.
Adyashanti Denial Of The Truth Sayings By Adyashanti: Deep down we all suspect that something is very wrong with the way we perceive
Those who struggle to change the world see themselves as noble, even tragic figures. Yet most of those who work for world betterment are not rebels against the scheme of things. They seek consolation for a truth they are too weak to bear. At bottom, their faith that the world can be transformed by human will is a denial of their own mortality.John N. Gray Denial Of The Truth Sayings By John N. Gray: Those who struggle to change the world see themselves as noble, even tragic figures. Yet
Refusal to accept the truth is denial of divine self.Lailah Gifty Akita Denial Of The Truth Sayings By Lailah Gifty Akita: Refusal to accept the truth is denial of divine self.
Those who deny the existence of the truth postulate the truth of their denial and plainly contradict themselves.Antonio Machado Denial Of The Truth Sayings By Antonio Machado: Those who deny the existence of the truth postulate the truth of their denial and
Once upon a time black male "cool" was defined by the ways in which black men confronted hardships of life without allowing their spirits to be ravaged. They took the pain of it and used it alchemically to turn the pain into gold. That burning process required high heat. Black male cool was defined by the ability to withstand the heat and remain centered. It was defined by black male willingness to confront reality, to face the truth, and bear it not by adopting a false pose of cool while feeding on fantasy; not by black male denial or by assuming a "poor me" victim identity. It was defined by individual black males daring to self-define rather than be defined by others.Bell Hooks Denial Of The Truth Sayings By Bell Hooks: Once upon a time black male "cool" was defined by the ways in which black
The vast majority of women who say that they are being abused are telling the truth. I know this to be true because the abusers let their guard down with me, belying their denial.Lundy Bancroft Denial Of The Truth Sayings By Lundy Bancroft: The vast majority of women who say that they are being abused are telling the
We live in a world of denial, and we don't know what the truth is anymore.Javier Bardem Denial Of The Truth Sayings By Javier Bardem: We live in a world of denial, and we don't know what the truth is
Sports teach us the value of facing yourself and others honestly. You can only grow if you let go of denial and embrace what is real and true.Corey Irwin Denial Of The Truth Sayings By Corey Irwin: Sports teach us the value of facing yourself and others honestly. You can only grow
The U.S. Government hasn't maintained secrecy regarding UFOs. It's been leaking out all over the place. But the way it's been handled is by denial, by denying the truth of the documents that have leaked. By attempting to show them as fraudulent, as bogus of some sort. There has been a very large disinformation and misinformation effort around this whole area. And one must wonder, how better to hide something out in the open than just to say, 'It isn't there. You're deceiving yourself if you think this is true.' And yet, there it is right in front of you.Edgar Mitchell Denial Of The Truth Sayings By Edgar Mitchell: The U.S. Government hasn't maintained secrecy regarding UFOs. It's been leaking out all over the
But it was something else too, MacFarlane said. It was a denial, but it was also the truth. Peter really did not know who Jesus was, did not really know, and neither do any of us really know who Jesus is either. Beyond all we can find to say about him and believe about him, he remains always beyond our grasp, except maybe once in a while the hem of his garment. We should never forget that. We can love him, we can learn from him, but we can come to know him only by following him - by searching for him in his church, in his Gospels, in each other. That was the sermon I heard anyway, and I remember thinking that if it were not for all the reasons I have for living where I do, I could imagine moving a thousand miles just to be near where I could hear truth spoken like that.Frederick Buechner Denial Of The Truth Sayings By Frederick Buechner: But it was something else too, MacFarlane said. It was a denial, but it was
This understanding floats on the surface of Jija's mind for the rest of the day after Renthree leaves. The truth is beneath the surface, a Leviathan waiting to uncurl, but the waters of his thoughts are placid for now. Denial is powerful.N.K. Jemisin Denial Of The Truth Sayings By N.K. Jemisin: This understanding floats on the surface of Jija's mind for the rest of the day
Nearly everything so far has been the creation of men - and a liberal, right-on denial of it makes everything more awkward and difficult in the long run. Pretending that women have had a pop at all this before but just ultimately didn't do as well as the men, that the experiment of female liberation has already happened but floundered, gives strength to the belief that women simply aren't as good as men, full stop. That things should just carry on as they are - with the world shaped around, and honoring, the priorities, needs, whims, and successes of men. Women are over, without having even begun. When the truth is that we haven't begun at all. Of course we haven't. We'll know it when we have.Caitlin Moran Denial Of The Truth Sayings By Caitlin Moran: Nearly everything so far has been the creation of men - and a liberal, right-on
If I were asked to define the Hindu creed, I should simply say: Search after truth through non-violent means. A man may not believe in God and still call himself a Hindu. Hinduism is a relentless pursuit after truth ... Hinduism is the religion of truth. Truth is God. Denial of God we have known. Denial of truth we have not known.Mahatma Gandhi Denial Of The Truth Sayings By Mahatma Gandhi: If I were asked to define the Hindu creed, I should simply say: Search after
Without free speech no search for truth is possible ... no discovery of truth is useful ... Better a thousandfold abuse of free speech than denial of free speech. The abuse dies in a day, but the denial slays the life of the people, and entombs the hope of the race.Charles Bradlaugh Denial Of The Truth Sayings By Charles Bradlaugh: Without free speech no search for truth is possible ... no discovery of truth is
Renunciation isn't a moral imperative or a form of self-denial. It's simply cooperation with the way things are: for moments do pass away, one after the other. Resisting this natural unfolding doesn't change it; resistance only makes it painful. So we renounce our resistance, our noncooperation, our stubborn refusal to enter life as it is. We renounce our fantasy of a beautiful past and an exciting future we can cherish and hold on to. Life just isn't like this. Life, time, is letting go, moment after moment. Life and time redeem themselves constantly, heal themselves constantly, only we don't know this, and much as we long to be healed and redeemed, we refuse to recognize this truth. This is why the sirens' songs are so attractive and so deadly. They propose a world of indulgence and wishful thinking, an unreal world that is seductive and destructive. (142)Norman Fischer Denial Of The Truth Sayings By Norman Fischer: Renunciation isn't a moral imperative or a form of self-denial. It's simply cooperation with the
Lately I have come to believe that an as yet undiscovered human need and even a property of matter is the desire for revelation. The truth within us has a way of coming out despite all conscious efforts to conceal it. I have heard stories from those in the generation after the war, all speaking of the same struggle to ferret truth from the silence of their parents so that they themselves could begin to live.Susan Griffin Denial Of The Truth Sayings By Susan Griffin: Lately I have come to believe that an as yet undiscovered human need and even
My foray into the world of adults had taught me that very few people are willing to tell you the truth. It is something reserved only for the people who loved you the most unconditionally, the ones who were willing to absorb the denial and resentment that often accompanied it. It is a thankless job, that of the truth-teller.Tina L. Hook Denial Of The Truth Sayings By Tina L. Hook: My foray into the world of adults had taught me that very few people are
Even though our words were mirrors that reflected the grotesque swamps of our emotions, the ink played more though. Because if she made mistake with her pen, I'd feel depressed. It's something invaluable our euphoric relationship, so deep that no can see our shame or denial. But our lies, helped us push on, because we didn't know the truth for what's worth.Jeremy Limn Denial Of The Truth Sayings By Jeremy Limn: Even though our words were mirrors that reflected the grotesque swamps of our emotions, the
The point of self-reflection is, foremost, to clarify and to find honesty. Self-reflection is the way to throw self-lies out and face the truth - however painful it might be to admit that you were wrong. We seek consistency in ourselves, and so when we are faced with inconsistency, we struggle to deny. Denial has no place in self-reflection, and so it is incumbent upon a person to admit his errors, to embrace them and to move along in a more positive direction. We can fool ourselves for all sorts of reasons. Mostly for the sake of our ego, of course, but sometimes, I now understand, because we are afraid. For sometimes we are afraid to hope, because hope breeds expectation, and expectation can lead to disappointment. AndR.A. Salvatore Denial Of The Truth Sayings By R.A. Salvatore: The point of self-reflection is, foremost, to clarify and to find honesty. Self-reflection is the
There is only one power which can from within undermine egoism at the root, and really does undermine it, namely love, and chiefly sexual love. The falsehood and evil of egoism consists in the exclusive acknowledgement of absolute significance for oneself and in the denial of it for others. Reason shows us that this is unfounded and unjust, but simply by the facts love directly abrogates such an unjust relation, compelling us not by abstract consciousness, but by an internal emotion and the will of life to recognize for ourselves the absolute significance of another. Recognizing in love the truth of another, not abstractly, but essentially, transferring in deed the centre of our life beyond the limits of our empirical personality, we by so doing reveal and realize our own real truth, our own absolute significance, which consists just in our capacity to transcend the borders of our factual phenomenal being, in our capacity to live not only in ourselves, but also in another.Vladimir S. Soloviev Denial Of The Truth Sayings By Vladimir S. Soloviev: There is only one power which can from within undermine egoism at the root, and
The first truth, Buddha taught his disciples, is that suffering is part of the human condition. If we simply try to avoid confronting painful experiences, there is no way to begin the healing process. In fact, this denial creates the very conditions that promote and prolong unnecessary suffering.Peter A. Levine Denial Of The Truth Sayings By Peter A. Levine: The first truth, Buddha taught his disciples, is that suffering is part of the human
Only a law-order which holds to the primacy of God's law can bring forth true freedom, freedom for justice, truth, and godly life. Freedom as an absolute is simply an assertion of man's "right" to be his own god; this means a radical denial of God's law-order. "Freedom" thus is another name for the claim by man to divinity and autonomy. It means that man becomes his own absolute.R.J. Rushdoony Denial Of The Truth Sayings By R.J. Rushdoony: Only a law-order which holds to the primacy of God's law can bring forth true
You would think no harm in a child's caressing a large dog, even if he was black; but a creature that can think, and reason, and feel, and is immortal, you shudder at; confess it, cousin. I know the feeling among some of you northerners well enough. Not that there is a particle of virtue in our not having it; but custom with us does what Christianity ought to do, - obliterates the feeling of personal prejudice. I have often noticed, in my travels north, how much stronger this was with you than with us. You loathe them as you would a snake or a toad, yet you are indignant at their wrongs. You would not have them abused; but you don't want to have anything to do with them yourselves. You would send them to Africa, out of your sight and smell, and then send a missionary or two to do up all the self-denial of elevating them compendiously. Isn't that it?" "Well, cousin," said Miss Ophelia, thoughtfully, "there may be some truth in this.Harriet Beecher Stowe Denial Of The Truth Sayings By Harriet Beecher Stowe: You would think no harm in a child's caressing a large dog, even if he
There is a psychological dimension to the deniers' and minimizers' objectives: The general public tends to accord victims of genocide a certain moral authority. If you devictimize a people you strip them of their moral authority, and if you can in turn claim to be a victim, as the Poles and Austrians often try to do, that moral authority is conferred on or restored to you.

Cherish those who seek the truth but beware of those who find it.Voltaire Denial Of The Truth Sayings By Voltaire: Cherish those who seek the truth but beware of those who find it.
She had locked something away,
something deep inside.

A truth that she had once known,
but chose to forget.

And she couldn't break free.

I went deep into the recess of her mind
and found that secret place.

I have refused to believe that Mother will die. And by denying her cancer, even her death, I deny her life. Denial stops us from listening. I cannot hear what Mother is saying. I can only hear what I want. But denial lies. It protects us from the potency of a truth we cannot yet bear to accept. It takes our hands and leads us to places of comfort. Denial flourishes in the familiar. It seduces us with our own desires and cleverly constructs walls around us to keep us safe.Terry Tempest Williams Denial Of The Truth Sayings By Terry Tempest Williams: I have refused to believe that Mother will die. And by denying her cancer, even
The Soviet response was silence, followed by bellicose denial, followed by efforts to derail the international investigation. It was eight years after the collapse of the Soviet Union that Russia acknowledged the truth.Anonymous Denial Of The Truth Sayings By Anonymous: The Soviet response was silence, followed by bellicose denial, followed by efforts to derail the
I was living a life of a lie. And I was doing a lot of things, that hurt a lot of people. And stripping away denial and rationalization you start coming to the truth of who you really are and that can be very ugly.Tiger Woods Denial Of The Truth Sayings By Tiger Woods: I was living a life of a lie. And I was doing a lot of
The sense of a truth-function of p is a function of the sense of p. Denial, logical addition, logical multiplication, etc. etc., are operations.

With the publication of this book we, as non-Jews, are doing our small part to stand up for the truth. So let us state unequivocally here and now: the Holocaust happened EXACTLY as per the history books. Period. Fact. No debate whatsoever.James Morcan Denial Of The Truth Sayings By James Morcan: With the publication of this book we, as non-Jews, are doing our small part to
The truth is relative in this world; it's changing all the time because we live in a world of illusions. What is true right now is not true later. Then it could be true again. The truth in hell could also be just another concept, another lie that can be used against you. Our own denial system is so powerful and strong that it becomes very complicated. There are truths covering lies, and lies covering truth. Like peeling an onion, you uncover the truth little by little until in the end, you open your eyes to find out that everyone around you, including yourself, is lying all the time. AlmostMiguel Ruiz Denial Of The Truth Sayings By Miguel Ruiz: The truth is relative in this world; it's changing all the time because we live
We are all familiar with intellectuals who speak only on behalf of their country, class, religion, 'race,' 'gender,' or 'sexual orientation,' and who shape their opinions according to what they take to be the interest of their affinity of birth or predilection. But the distinctive feature of the liberal intellectual in past times was precisely the striving for universality; not the unworldly or disingenuous denial of sectional identification but the sustained effort to transcend that identification in search of truth or the general interest ... In today's America, neoconservatives generate brutish policies for which liberals provide the ethical fig leaf. There really is no other diifference between them.Tony Judt Denial Of The Truth Sayings By Tony Judt: We are all familiar with intellectuals who speak only on behalf of their country, class,
I'm saying it's so big and audacious that we'll most likely never be suspected. I'm saying that even if we are, the powers that be will realize that it can never be conclusively proven. I'm saying that a consensus of denial will build off of it. I'm saying that people will want to remember the man as something he wasn't. I'm saying that we'll present them with an explanation and the powers that be will prefer it to the truth, even though they know better."

There were waves of genocide that overcame indigenous populations of Oceania and do we have a library of books or films to tell our story? No. We have tourist hula shows and commercials where the "natives" tend to tourists like indentured servants with plastic, lifeless smiles. It's not such a charming picture, is it? The truth is ugly, but so is ignorance or denial of such atrocities and pain.M.B. Dallocchio Denial Of The Truth Sayings By M.B. Dallocchio: There were waves of genocide that overcame indigenous populations of Oceania and do we have
The wonderful paradox about the truth of suffering is that the more we open to it and understand it, the lighter and freer our mind becomes. Our mind becomes more spacious, more open, and happier as we move past our avoidance and denial to see what is true. We become less driven by compulsive desires and addictions, because we see clearly the nature of things as they are.Joseph Goldstein Denial Of The Truth Sayings By Joseph Goldstein: The wonderful paradox about the truth of suffering is that the more we open to
Life is already together, and what you have to experience is experiencing it being together. The striving to put it together is a denial of the truth that it is actually already together and further striving keeps you from getting it together.Werner Erhard Denial Of The Truth Sayings By Werner Erhard: Life is already together, and what you have to experience is experiencing it being together.
It was so long in the past that it should not have mattered, but it did. It did. Once he had realized that these words and words like them were the truth, once they had broken through his defensive barrier of denial, then they became a part of him, burning their way into his soul.J.N.

And my car back then, a Studebaker as I recall, was powered, as are most of all means of transportation and other machinery today, and electric power plants and furnaces, by the most abused, addictive, and destructive drugs of all: fossil fuels.
When you got here, even when I got here, the industrialized world was already hopelessly hooked on fossil fuels, and very soon now there won't be any left. Cold turkey.
Can I tell you the truth? I mean this isn't the TV news is it? Here's what I think the truth is: We are all addicts of fossil fuels in a state of denial. And like so many addicts about to face cold turkey, our leaders are now committing violent crimes to get what little is left of what we're hooked on.

This is the crisis we're in: God-light streamed into the world, but men and women everywhere ran for the darkness. They went for the darkness because they were not really interested in pleasing God. Everyone who makes a practice of doing evil, addicted to denial and illusion, hates God-light and won't come near it, fearing a painful exposure. But anyone working and living in truth and reality welcomes God-light so the work can be seen for the God-work it is.Eugene H. Peterson Denial Of The Truth Sayings By Eugene H. Peterson: This is the crisis we're in: God-light streamed into the world, but men and women

You will never let go of the past by ignoring the most painful thing the person you loved has done to you. When you begin to minimize it, second guess yourself and others, ignore it or even pretend it didn't happen you cheat yourself out of healing. Naturally, your mind would rather believe the lies you are telling it, rather than accept the truth. The soul has a way of protecting itself from trauma, but if left in denial there is no growth or change. Healing requires going to that place you avoid and asking yourself why you are so afraid to accept the reality of what happened to you? Why have you minimized it like this person has wanted you to? What is it about your self esteem that allows you to continue being a doormat?Shannon L. Alder Denial Of The Truth Sayings By Shannon L. Alder: You will never let go of the past by ignoring the most painful thing the
Doubt, indulged and cherished, is in danger of becoming denial; but if honest, and bent on thorough investigation, it may soon lead to full establishment of the truth.Ambrose Bierce Denial Of The Truth Sayings By Ambrose Bierce: Doubt, indulged and cherished, is in danger of becoming denial; but if honest, and bent
Virtue, though often mocked and ridiculed, is as beautiful as wickedness is ugly. Self-denial curiously spawns joyful happiness, while selfishness and arrogance produce desperation and obsession. Being faithful to duty brings great fulfillment, while following unchecked passions eventually leads us to despise ourselves. And the greatest truth of all: There is no higher end, no more glorious life, no better aim, than to live in the fear and favor of Almighty God.Gary L. Thomas Denial Of The Truth Sayings By Gary L. Thomas: Virtue, though often mocked and ridiculed, is as beautiful as wickedness is ugly. Self-denial curiously
Writing about memories is an elusive process. It often begins with a good intention: to convey the truth. What happens in reality is that we only write down what passes through the censors' eyes. The censors here are the ambient time and space, social and political conditions, and the psychological changers the writer herself. What one writes now is certainly not what actually happened. It is but a vague indicator of what might have happened, a mixture of illusive and contracted images, a dream, or an act conditioned by either a denial or a desire to see past events shaped by what is yearned for in the present. p. 153Haifa Zangana Denial Of The Truth Sayings By Haifa Zangana: Writing about memories is an elusive process. It often begins with a good intention: to
To 'pretend' is to say that I'm willing to waste the precious energy that it takes to pretend, and I'm unwilling to cultivate the bravery that it takes to be real. And I am at a complete loss to pretend that either of these aren't true.Craig D. Lounsbrough Denial Of The Truth Sayings By Craig D. Lounsbrough: To 'pretend' is to say that I'm willing to waste the precious energy that it

I feel that some people have a hard time with the truths around us, not only the sexual abuse by priests, but all bad things. I call it chosen ignorance. This modified form of ignorance is found in people who, if confronted with certain truths realize that they have to accept them and thereby acknowledge evil, and that scares them. Opening up and letting the truth in might knock them off their perceived center. It is too hard, period.Charles L. Bailey Jr. Denial Of The Truth Sayings By Charles L.

Setting aside the truth value of the UFO phenomenon, it is an interesting sociological reality that so many people are unwilling to discuss the most - and at times traumatic - experience of their lives. What does it say about our society that this is so? My feeling is that, by its very nature, it represents a form of repression. If you are a reader who believes UFOs to be nonsense of some sort, I can nevertheless assure you that you have a friend or relation who has seen one. They have simply learned not to discuss it. Many people can live perfectly well within the constraints of repression and denial; they simply learn to shut off certain parts of their mind. It is sad, but it happens all of the time.

But not everyone is the same. Not everyone is willing to do this, or even can do this. By any estimate, there are may millions of people on this planet who have had a powerful UFO experience. They cannot and will not be silenced indefinitely.

I claim that the fact that we are strongly encouraged to identify with characters for whom death is not a significant creative possibly has real costs. We the audience, and individual you over there and me right here, lose any sense of eschatology, thus of teleology, and live in a moment that is, paradoxically, both emptied of intrinsic meaning or end and quite literally ETERNAL. If we're the only animals who know in advance we're going to die, we're also probably the only animals who would submit so cheerfully to the sustained denial of this undeniable and very important truth. The danger is that, as entertainment's denials of the truth get even more effective and pervasive and seductive, we will eventually forget what they're denials OF. This is scary. Because it seems transparent to me that, if we forget how to die, we're going to forget how to live.David Foster Wallace Denial Of The Truth Sayings By David Foster Wallace: I claim that the fact that we are strongly encouraged to identify with characters for
The Black homosexual is hard pressed to gain audience among his heterosexual brothers; even if he is more talented, he is inhibited by his silence or his admissions. This is what the race has depended on in being able to erase homosexuality from our recorded history. The "chosen" history. But the sacred constructions of silence are futile exercises in denial. We will not go away with our issues of sexuality. We are coming home. It is not enough to tell us that one was a brilliant poet, scientist, educator, or rebel. Whom did he love? It makes a difference. I can't become a whole man simply on what is fed to me: watered-down versions of Black life in America. I need the ass-splitting truth to be told, so I will have something pure to emulate, a reason to remain loyal.Essex Hemphill Denial Of The Truth Sayings By Essex Hemphill: The Black homosexual is hard pressed to gain audience among his heterosexual brothers; even if
I know of no crime that has not been defended by the church, in one form or other.

Evil is nothing but a word, an objectification where no objectification is necessary. Cast aside this notion of some external agency as the source of inconceivable inhumanity - the sad truth is our possession of an innate proclivity towards indifference, towards deliberate denial of mercy, towards disengaging all that is moral within us.
But if that is too dire , let's call it evil. And paint it with fire and venom.
