Self-interest is the enemy of all true affection.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
I would rather discover one true cause than gain the kingdom of Persia.
Few there are that will endure a true friend.
Henry George Bohn
The mantra that you're given in Transcendental Meditation you keep to yourself. The reason being, true happiness is not out there, true happiness lies within.
If the Olympic Games ever served a true altruistic purpose, they have long since outlived it. Yeah, the pursuit of athletic excellence, sportsmanship and international goodwill is plenty noble. But the modern Olympics are at best a vehicle for agitprop; at worst, a scandal magnet.
In the province of the mind, what one believes to be true either is true or becomes true.
I think it would collapse my heart if I was super famous. I don't have the nerve for it, I'm too anxious. I don't know how you're not obsessed with how people perceive you, because they're real people, you know? You can convince yourself that they don't really know you, and that's true, but how can it not hurt your feelings?
It's very easy to say that something is a shadow of itself, and it may be true in some senses.
When a true genius appears, you can know him by this sign: that all the dunces are in a confederacy against him.
A slender acquaintance with the world must convince every man that actions, not words, are the true criterion of the attachment of friends.

Margaret Chase Smith
I thank my God for graciously granting me the opportunity of learning that death is the key which unlocks the door to our true happiness.
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Well, any good comeback needs some true believers.
Cultures have long heard wisdom in non-human voices: Apollo, god of music, medicine and knowledge, came to Delphi in the form of a dolphin. But dolphins, which fill the oceans with blipping and chirping, and whales, which mew and caw in ultramarine jazz - a true rhapsody in blue - are hunted to the edge of silence.
People think, because we're young, we aren't complex, but that's not true. We deal with life and love and broken hearts in the same way a woman a few years older might.
True relaxation, which would do me the world of good, does not exist for me.
Religion forbids us from assuming a God-like character. This is especially true in politics and government, where limiting the power of the state, division of powers, and the doctrine of checks and balances are established in order to prevent accumulation of power that might lead to such Godly claims.
Love always brings difficulties, that is true, but the good side of it is that it gives energy.
Vincent Van Gogh
There are two freedoms - the false, where a man is free to do what he likes; the true, where he is free to do what he ought.
No matter that patriotism is too often the refuge of scoundrels. Dissent, rebellion, and all-around hell-raising remain the true duty of patriots.
I cannot improve on those spoken for many years by a true legend who preceded me at CBS News. He would say, simply, 'good night, and good luck.'
