Bonald’s maxim on truth

At the hospital I was at recently, some of the curtains had “inspirational” sayings written on them.  I was struck by this one:

Speak your truth.

to which I must reply

There is a word for people who take a propietory attitude toward truth.  They’re called “liars”.

What a world of difference there is between “my truth” and “the truth”.

  1. I always found Pilate’s question on truth particularly mocking – just goes to show human nature and sin doesn’t change.
