Running away is futile. Even if you run very far away from home to a remote mountain monastery, as long as you carry the same attitude you've always had, you'll never truly get away. You'll just end up transferring all the stuff from home onto the other people at the monastery ...
Lots of people run away from responsibilities to "find themselves." But not so many of them have a real commitment to the truth. It would be better to find the truth in the life you're living, with the responsibilities you've already accepted. Responsibilities have a way of finding you, even if you run away from them.
Brad Warner Running From The Truth Sayings By Brad Warner: Running away is futile. Even if you run very far away from home to a
Xander, there are two certainties in life--death and truth. They will both pursue you to your grave. There is no escaping them. But we run from them anyway in hopes that somehow we can slip by unnoticed. In the end, one or both of them catch up. Running doesn't solve anything.A.C. Williams Running From The Truth Sayings By A.C. Williams: Xander, there are two certainties in life--death and truth. They will both pursue you to
It is an indication of truth's jealousy that it has not made for anyone a path to it, and that it has not deprived anyone of the hope of attaining it, and it has left people running in the deserts of perplexity and drowning in the seas of doubt; and he who thinks he has attained it, it dissociates itself from, and he who thinks he has dissociated himself from it has lost his way.Naguib Mahfouz Running From The Truth Sayings By Naguib Mahfouz: It is an indication of truth's jealousy that it has not made for anyone a
He had two lives: one, open, seen and known by all who cared to know, full of relative truth and of relative falsehood, exactly like the lives of his friends and acquaintances; and another life running its course in secret. And through some strange, perhaps accidental, conjunction of circumstances, everything that was essential, of interest and of value to him, everything in which he was sincere and did not deceive himself, everything that made the kernel of his life, was hidden from other people.Anton Chekhov Running From The Truth Sayings By Anton Chekhov: He had two lives: one, open, seen and known by all who cared to know,
the bus was running late, but in truth this was no surprise. Delhi probably got its name from the word 'delay'.Karl Pilkington Running From The Truth Sayings By Karl Pilkington: the bus was running late, but in truth this was no surprise. Delhi probably got
You cannot run away from the truth because truth will find you.ColoZeus Benz Running From The Truth Sayings By ColoZeus Benz: You cannot run away from the truth because truth will find you.
Every step in every proud life is a run from safety to the dark, and the only thing to trust is what we think is true.Richard Bach Running From The Truth Sayings By Richard Bach: Every step in every proud life is a run from safety to the dark, and
He should be happy because he can think about the unhappiness of others!
He's stupid if he doesn't know other people's unhappiness is theirs,
And isn't cured from the outside,
Because suffering isn't like running out of ink,
Or a trunk not having iron bands!

There being injustice is like there being death.
Alberto Caeiro Running From The Truth Sayings By Alberto Caeiro: He should be happy because he can think about the unhappiness of others!He's stupid if
You will live to love again. You know you have lost your springtime girl, your Molly on the beach with the wind in her brown hair and red cloak. You have been gone too long from her, and too much has befallen you both. And what you loved, what both of you truly loved, was not each other. It was the time of your life. It was the spring of your years, and life running strong in you, and war on your doorstep and your strong, perfect bodies. Look back, in truth. You will find you recall fully as many quarrels and tears as you do lovemaking and kisses. Fitz. Be wise. Let her go, and keep those memories intact. Save what you can of her, and let her keep what she can of the wild and daring boy she loved. Because both he and that merry little miss are no more than memories anymore." She shook her head. "No more than memories.Robin Hobb Running From The Truth Sayings By Robin Hobb: You will live to love again. You know you have lost your springtime girl, your
The worst part is wondering how you'll find the strength tomorrow
to go on doing what you did today and have been doing for much
too long, where you'll find the strength for all that stupid running around, those projects that come to nothing, those attempts to escape from crushing necessity, which always founder and serve only to convince you one more time that destiny is implacable, that every night will find you down and out, crushed by the dread of more and more sordid and insecure tomorrows. And maybe it's treacherous old age coming on, threatening the worst. Not much music left inside us for life to dance to. Our youth has gone to the ends of the earth to die in the silence of the truth. And where, I ask you, can a man escape to, when he hasn't enough madness left inside him? The truth is an endless death agony. The truth is death. You have to choose: death or lies. I've never been able to kill myself.
Louis-Ferdinand Celine Running From The Truth Sayings By Louis-Ferdinand Celine: The worst part is wondering how you'll find the strength tomorrowto go on doing what
Ah yes, the facts. I've spent my whole life running after them, convinced that if I found demonstrable, incontrovertible facts I would also find some kind of truth. Now aged sixty-three, faced with this war which has only just begun and with an unsettling premonition of what is soon to follow, I'm beginning to think the facts are just a front and that the truth they mask is at best like a Russian doll: as soon as you open it up you find a smaller one inside, then another which is even smaller, then another and another, till finally all you are left with is something the size of a grain.
Letters against the war: Letter from Quetta, 2011.
Tiziano Terzani Running From The Truth Sayings By Tiziano Terzani: Ah yes, the facts. I've spent my whole life running after them, convinced that if
The truth is that not yet usually means never. Trying to run away from the responsibility to decide about Christ is childish. Pilate sought to refuse responsibility for deciding about Christ, but Pilate's hands were never dirtier than just after he had washed them.Neal A. Maxwell Running From The Truth Sayings By Neal A. Maxwell: The truth is that not yet usually means never. Trying to run away from the
I've never told anyone this, in an effort to run from my past and disguise it, I got rid of all of the scrapbooks my mother kept going back to when I was a baby. Truly. So that's why whenever talk show hosts or a producer asks for these pictures, there are barely any. My sister had a few, but that's it, and this was before digital. I've never told anyone that, but that's the truth.Tim Gunn Running From The Truth Sayings By Tim Gunn: I've never told anyone this, in an effort to run from my past and disguise
You can run from the truth. You can run and hide from the truth.
You can deny and avoid the truth. But you cannot destroy the truth. Nor can you make the lie true. You must know that love will always uncover the truth.
Delano Johnson Running From The Truth Sayings By Delano Johnson: You can run from the truth. You can run and hide from the truth.You can
What was the point of trying to run away if people were going to insist on reminding you of what you were running from?Morgan Matson Running From The Truth Sayings By Morgan Matson: What was the point of trying to run away if people were going to insist
I knew she was not telling me the truth. I asked her again what had happned because I don't like it when she keeps something from me. She's not allowed. Because when she lies, someting inside me changes, and it's like the WHOLE WORLD is one way and I'm the other. Like I can't trust a thing, as if the whole world knows a secret I don't and I'm running around from person to person asking them to tell me but they won't and the more I don't know what is going on the more scared I become and I feel myself drifting farther and farther away from everyone.Jack Gantos Running From The Truth Sayings By Jack Gantos: I knew she was not telling me the truth. I asked her again what had
Look, you guys are running around like monkeys trying to get people to clap, but people are fallen, they are separated from God, so they have no idea what is good or bad, worthy to be judged or set free, beautiful or ugly to begin with. Why not get your glory from God? Why not accept your feelings of redemption because of His pleasure in you, not the fickle and empty favor of man? And only then will you know who you areDonald Miller Running From The Truth Sayings By Donald Miller: Look, you guys are running around like monkeys trying to get people to clap, but
Are you scared of me now?" She wanted the truth.
"More than ever." He had lowered his guard, putting himself at her mercy, because running away had only served to make him understand that he could never run away from who he was.
Llarjme Running From The Truth Sayings By Llarjme: Are you scared of me now?" She wanted the truth."More than ever." He had lowered
Why the hell not run a race across the United States? A balls-out, shoot-the-moon, f***-the-establishment rumble from New York to Los Angeles to prove what we had been harping about for years, for example, that good drivers in good automobiles could employ the American Interstate system the same way the Germans were using their Autobahns? Yes, make high-speed travel by car a reality! Truth and justice affirmed by an overtly illegal act.Brock Yates Running From The Truth Sayings By Brock Yates: Why the hell not run a race across the United States? A balls-out, shoot-the-moon, f***-the-establishment
We are here among you as seekers of refuge from our present-your future-a time of worldwide famine, exhausted fuel supplies, terminal poverty-the end of the capitalistic experiment. Once we came to understand the simpl ... truth that earth's resources were limited, in fact soon to run out, the whole capitalistic illusion fell to pieces. Those of us who spoke this truth were denounced as heretics, as enemies of the prevailing economic faith. Like religious Dissenters of an earlier day ...Thomas Pynchon Running From The Truth Sayings By Thomas Pynchon: We are here among you as seekers of refuge from our present-your future-a time of
Dreams are impartial, spontaneous products of the unconscious psyche, outside the control of the will. They are pure nature; they show us the unvarnished, natural truth, and are therefore fitted, as nothing else is, to give us back an attitude that accords with our basic human nature when our consciousness has strayed too far from its foundations and run into an impasse.Carl Jung Running From The Truth Sayings By Carl Jung: Dreams are impartial, spontaneous products of the unconscious psyche, outside the control of the will.
We suffer from the illusion that the faster we run, the more likely we are to grasp happiness. The truth is that the velocity necessary for success rarely exceeds the rate of reflection.Sam Keen Running From The Truth Sayings By Sam Keen: We suffer from the illusion that the faster we run, the more likely we are
The experience of that night, coming so overwhelmingly to a man so dead, almost rent me in pieces. It was the same feeling that artists know when we, rarely, achieve truth in our work; the feeling of union with some great force, of purpose and security, of being glad that we have lived. For the first time I felt the pull of race and blood and kindred, and felt beating within me things that had not begun with me. It was as if the earth under my feet had grasped and rooted me, and were pouring its essence into me. I sat there until the dawn of morning, and all night long my life seemed to be pouring out of me and running into the ground.
from the short story The Namesake
Willa Cather Running From The Truth Sayings By Willa Cather: The experience of that night, coming so overwhelmingly to a man so dead, almost rent
We are living in a culture that if you criticize immorality you could be branded as a "bigot". I am going to lose a lot of support just by saying this. I am not a politician and I am not running a popularity contest. My job is to defend our world from Islam. You asked why the westerners convert to Islam and I must tell the truth as I see it. If that offends anyone, let him be offended.Ali Sina Running From The Truth Sayings By Ali Sina: We are living in a culture that if you criticize immorality you could be branded
In the end, the church will either declare the truth of God's Word, or it will find a way to run away from it.Albert Mohler Running From The Truth Sayings By Albert Mohler: In the end, the church will either declare the truth of God's Word, or it
I could feel the warmth of the dog through my nightgown; I must have gotten hot during the night and thrown off the sheet. I drowsily patted the animal's head and began to stroke his fur, my fingers running idly through the thick hair. He wriggled even closer, sniffed my face, put his arm around me.
His *arm*?
I was off the bed and shrieking in one move.
In my bed, Sam propped himself on his elbows, sunny side up, and looked at me with some amusement.
"Oh, ohmyGod! Sam, how'd you get here? What are you doing? Where's Dean?" I covered my face with my hands and turned back, but I'd certainly seen all there was to see of Sam.
"Woof," said Sam, from a human throat, and the truth stomped over me in combat boots.
I whirled back to face him, so angry I felt like I was going to blow a gasket.
"You watched me undress last night, you ... you ... damn dog!
Charlaine Harris Running From The Truth Sayings By Charlaine Harris: I could feel the warmth of the dog through my nightgown; I must have gotten
Follow the man who seeks the truth; run from the man who has found it.Vaclav Havel Running From The Truth Sayings By Vaclav Havel: Follow the man who seeks the truth; run from the man who has found it.
When dreaded outcomes are actually imminent we don't worry about themwe take action. Seeing lava from the local volcano make its way down the street toward our house does not cause worry it causes running. Also we don't usually choose imminent events as subjects for our worrying and thus emerges an ironic truth: Often the very fact that you are worrying about something means that it isn't likely to happen.Gavin De Becker Running From The Truth Sayings By Gavin De Becker: When dreaded outcomes are actually imminent we don't worry about themwe take action. Seeing lava

We find that one of the most rewarding features of being scientists these days ... is the common bond which the search for truth provides to scholars of many tongues and many heritages. In the long run, that spirit will inevitably have a constructive effect on the benefits which man can derive from knowledge of himself and his environment.Stanford Moore Running From The Truth Sayings By Stanford Moore: We find that one of the most rewarding features of being scientists these days ...
District. He complained that his new job took him away from his ranch too much. His wife complained even more, but the truth of the matter was that nothing much had happened in a criminal way since Horace had been deputy. He had seen himself making a name for himself and running for sheriff. The sheriff was an important officer. His job was less flighty than that of district attorney, almost as permanent and dignified as superior court judge. Horace didn't want to stay on the ranch all his life, and his wife had an urge to live in Salinas where she had relatives. When the rumors, repeated by theJohn Steinbeck Running From The Truth Sayings By John Steinbeck: District. He complained that his new job took him away from his ranch too much.
It is always now. This might sound trite, but it is the truth. It's not quite true as a matter of neurology, because our minds are built upon layers of inputs whose timing we know must be different.11 But it is true as a matter of conscious experience. The reality of your life is always now. And to realize this, we will see, is liberating. In fact, I think there is nothing more important to understand if you want to be happy in this world. But we spend most of our lives forgetting this truth - overlooking it, fleeing it, repudiating it. And the horror is that we succeed. We manage to avoid being happy while struggling to become happy, fulfilling one desire after the next, banishing our fears, grasping at pleasure, recoiling from pain - and thinking, interminably, about how best to keep the whole works up and running.Sam Harris Running From The Truth Sayings By Sam Harris: It is always now. This might sound trite, but it is the truth. It's not
The trouble is that we live far from ourselves and have but little wish to get any nearer to ourselves. Indeed we are running away all the time to avoid coming face to face with our real selves, and we barter the truth for trifles.Anonymous Running From The Truth Sayings By Anonymous: The trouble is that we live far from ourselves and have but little wish to

It's amazing how our brains can create all kinds of ways of avoiding the truth. Especially when there's something you just don't want to face about yourself, or someone you love. We never get tired of running from ourselves. Never get tired of making excuses.Jeff Lemire Running From The Truth Sayings By Jeff Lemire: It's amazing how our brains can create all kinds of ways of avoiding the truth.
She sat down about two yards away from him, near a large wandering jew. "I first heard about it at the faculty wives' tea." "Everything is discussed there. I'm aware of that." "Of course I would be the last to know. Wives always are." "Come, come, Clara, my patience and my time are running out." Without warning he lifted up one of her hand-painted china cake plates and threw it against the wall. The outrage snapped the tension in the room, and she could weep now with some mild comfort, but without, he could see, any shock or concern for the priceless plate. (Aunt Clayburn) "You admit then you have a lover," she said, examining the broken pieces of china, from her chair. "I don't admit any such god damned thing," he scoffed. "The ladies were certainly sold on the truth of it." "I wish I had the nerve to have a lover. I might have been a better writer.James Purdy Running From The Truth Sayings By James Purdy: She sat down about two yards away from him, near a large wandering jew. "I
As I looked out at the water, I realized there was nowhere to go, nowhere left to run. And I just had to stay here, facing this terrible truth. I felt, as more tears fell, just how tired I was, a tiredness that had nothing to do with the hour. I was tired of running away from this, tired of not telling people, tired of not talking about it, tired of pretending things were okay when they had never, ever been less than okay.Morgan Matson Running From The Truth Sayings By Morgan Matson: As I looked out at the water, I realized there was nowhere to go, nowhere
Men do not know the natural infirmity of their mind: it does nothing but ferret and quest, and keeps incessantly whirling around, building up and becoming entangled in its own work, like silkworms, and is suffocated in it. A mouse in a pitch barrel ... thinks it notices from a distance some sort of glimmer of imaginary light and truth; but while running toward it, it is crossed by so many difficulties and obstacles, and diverted by so many new quests, that it strays from the road, bewildered.Michel De Montaigne Running From The Truth Sayings By Michel De Montaigne: Men do not know the natural infirmity of their mind: it does nothing but ferret
Truth or Dare?" she asks. I hesitate. "Truth," I say finally. "I can imagine one of your dares, and I don't fancy running down Oxford Street naked tonight."
"Truth," Alice says slowly, drawing out the vowel sound as if she's savouring the word. "Are you sure? Are you sure you can be completely honest?"
"I think so. Try me."
"Okay" And then she looks at me curiously. "So. Were you glad, deep down? Were you glad to be rid of her? Your perfect sister? Were you secretly glad when she died?"
Katherine has moved away from her shattered family to start afresh in Sydney. There she keeps her head down until she is befriended by the charismatic, party-loving Alice, who brings her out of her shell. But there is a dark side to Alice, something seductive yet threatening. And as Katherine learns the truth about Alice, their tangled destinies spiral to an explosive and devastating finale.
Rebecca James Running From The Truth Sayings By Rebecca James: Truth or Dare?" she asks. I hesitate. "Truth," I say finally. "I can imagine one
Whose truth do you want to know, Dr. Amin Jaafari? The truth of a Bedouin who thinks he's free and clear because he's got an Israeli passport? The truth of a serviceable Arab per excellence who's honored wherever he goes, who gets invited to fancy parties by people who want to show how tolerant and considerate they are? The truth of someone who thinks he can change sides like changing a shirt, with no trace left behind? Is that the truth you're looking for, or is it the one you're running away from? What planet do you live on, sir? ... Our cities are being buried by machines on caterpillar tracks, our patron saints don't know which way to turn, and you, simply because you're nice and warm in your golden cage, refuse to see the inferno consuming us.Yasmina Khadra Running From The Truth Sayings By Yasmina Khadra: Whose truth do you want to know, Dr. Amin Jaafari? The truth of a Bedouin
The truth is that I've never cared anything about sports. In PE, I do my best to get hit with the dodgeball on the first throw so I can sit out and read instead of play. I'd rather eat a hot dog at a baseball game than play baseball. I'd rather paint a soccer ball than kick one. I don't mind running, but only if I'm running towards something wonderful. i don't see the point in running away from anything, ever. -Felicity PickleNatalie Lloyd Running From The Truth Sayings By Natalie Lloyd: The truth is that I've never cared anything about sports. In PE, I do my
The gospel does in truth proclaim the redemption of reason. Obscurantism is always evil, and wilful error is always sin., All truth is God's truth; facts, as such, are sacred, and nothing is more un-Christian than to run away from them.J.I. Packer Running From The Truth Sayings By J.I. Packer: The gospel does in truth proclaim the redemption of reason. Obscurantism is always evil, and
Pick up a sunflower and count the florets running into its centre, or count the spiral scales of a pine cone or a pineapple, running from its bottom up its sides to the top, and you will find an extraordinary truth: recurring numbers, ratios and proportions.Charles Jencks Running From The Truth Sayings By Charles Jencks: Pick up a sunflower and count the florets running into its centre, or count the
There is no water in oxygen, no water in hydrogen: it comes bubbling fresh from the imagination of the living God, rushing from under the great white throne of the glacier. The very thought of it makes one gasp with an elemental joy no metaphysician can analyse. The water itself, that dances, and sings, and slakes the wonderful thirst

In a state-run society the government promises you security. But it's a false promise predicated on the idea that the opposite of security is risk. Nothing could be further from the truth. The opposite of security is insecurity, and the only way to overcome insecurity is to take risks. The gentle government that promises to hold your hand as you cross the street refuses to let go on the other side.Theodore J. Forstmann Running From The Truth Sayings By Theodore J. Forstmann: In a state-run society the government promises you security. But it's a false promise predicated
Boys are found everywhere- on top of, underneath, inside of, climbing on, swinging from, running around or jumping to. Mothers love them, little girls hate them, older sisters and brothers tolerated them, adults ignore them and Heaven protects them. A boy is Truth with dirt on its face, Beauty with a cut on its finger, Wisdom with bubble gum in its hair and the Hope of the future with a frog in its pocket. A boy is a magical creature- you can lock out of your workshop, but you can't lock him out of your heart. You can get him out of your study, but you can't get him out of your mind. Might as well give up- he is your captor, your jailor, your boss and your master- a freckled-faced, pint-sized, cat-chasing bundle of noise. But when you come home at night with only the shattered pieces of your hopes and dreams, he can mend them like new with two magic words- 'Hi, Dad!Alan Beck Running From The Truth Sayings By Alan Beck: Boys are found everywhere- on top of, underneath, inside of, climbing on, swinging from, running
The truth was that I'd been spending years running away from myself. I hid myself in drama, silliness, stupidity, banality. So afraid to grow up. So afraid to involve myself in relationships where I might be expected to give the same love I got - instead of sixth-grade shenanigans. I bored myself with all the when I grow up nonsense, but I was worried it would never happen even as I longed for it.Megan Crane Running From The Truth Sayings By Megan Crane: The truth was that I'd been spending years running away from myself. I hid myself

Avoiding conflict isn't peacemaking. Avoiding conflict means running away from the mess while peacemaking means running into the middle of it.
Peacemaking means addressing those issues that caused conflict in the first place.
Peacemaking can never be separated from doing justice. They go hand in hand. Peacemaking means having to stir the waters on the way to peace.
Peacemaking means speaking the truth in love, but speaking the truth nonetheless.
Peggy Haymes Running From The Truth Sayings By Peggy Haymes: Avoiding conflict isn't peacemaking. Avoiding conflict means running away from the mess while peacemaking means
Israelis like to believe, and tell the world, that they were running an "enlightened" or "benign" occupation, qualitatively different from other military occupations the world had seen. The truth was radically different. Like all occupations, Israel's was founded on brute force, repression and fear, collaboration and treachery, beatings and torture chambers, and daily intimidation, humiliation, and manipulation.Noam Chomsky Running From The Truth Sayings By Noam Chomsky: Israelis like to believe, and tell the world, that they were running an "enlightened" or
The force that is running inside you is the same force running the solar system ... the moment you relax from the 'I' the 'other' will disappear ... you become 'one' with the truth.Swami Nithyananda Running From The Truth Sayings By Swami Nithyananda: The force that is running inside you is the same force running the solar system
