truth

A Quote by Alexander Pope on action, clarity, faith, friendship, honor, losing, privacy, promises, sincerity, soul, and truth

Statesman, yet friend to truth! of soul sincere, In action faithful, and in honour clear; Who broke no promise, serv'd no private end, Who gain'd no title, and who lost no friend.

A Quote by Alexander Pope on art, chance, clarity, direction, evil, good, harmony, nature, pride, reason, truth, and understanding

All nature is but art, unknown to thee; All chance, direction, which thou canst not see; All discord, harmony not understood; All partial evil, universal good; And spite of pride, in erring reason's spite, One truth is clear, Whatever is, is right.

A Quote by Alexander Pope on mathematics, mountains, mystery, philosophy, and truth

See skulking Truth to her old cavern fled, Mountains of Casuistry heap'd o'er her head! Philosophy, that lean'd on Heav'n before, Shrinks to her second cause, and is no more. Physic of Metaphysic begs defence, And Metaphysic calls for aid on Sense! See Mystery to Mathematics fly!

A Quote by Alexander Pope on abuse, chaos, confusion, errors, glory, judgment, passion, thought, truth, and world

Chaos of thought and passion, all confused; Still by himself abused or disabused; Created half to rise, and half to fall; Great lord of all things, yet a prey to all; Sole judge of truth, in endless error hurled,- The glory, jest, and riddle of the world.

A Quote by Alexander Hamilton on character, democracy, enemies, fanaticism, hypocrisy, past, politics, popularity, principles, success, and truth

Perhaps myself the first, at some expense of popularity, to unfold the true character of Jefferson, it is too late for me to become his apologist. Nor can I have any disposition to do it. I admit that his politics are tinctured with fanaticism, that he is too much in earnest in his democracy, that he has been a mischievous enemy to the principle measures of our past administration, that he is crafty & persevering in his objects, that he is not scrupulous about the means of success, nor very mindful of truth, and that he is a contemptible hypocrite.
