The existence of truth is self-evident. For whoever denies the existence of truth grants that truth does not exist: and, if truth does not exist, then the proposition “Truth does not exist” is true.

Well I could have been a famous singer
If I had someone else’s voice
But failures always sounded better
Lets fuck it up boys, make some noise!
Bright Eyes, Road to Joy
Such is the pride of men that he declares in a high voice that things are incomprehensible when he does not understand them, rather than confessing that to ignore them could be due to his own slowness.
Mariano Jose de Larra, Come back tomorrow
Is it cruel or kind
not to speak my mind,
and to lie to you
rather than hurt you?
Well I’ll confess all my sins
after several large gins
but still I’ll hide
what’s inside from you.
The Libertines, Music when the lights go Out
-It’s so clean out here. [California]
-That’s because they don’t throw their garbage away, they turn it into television shows.
Woody Allen, Annie Hall
Other people’s parents are always nicer than our own, and yet.. for some reason, our grandparents are always nicer than other people’s.
