Truth Quotes (58) Spiritual Sayings
Summary: Definition of truth. Truth is most often used to mean in accord with fact or reality or fidelity to an original or to a standard or ideal. The opposite of truth is falsehood, which, correspondingly, can also take on a logical, factual, or ethical meaning. Many religions consider perfect knowledge of all truth about all things (omniscience) to be an attribute of a divine or supernatural being.
