So What's So Great About Truth?


 He said:

"The best fiction reminds us of what truth ought to be
and simultaneously calls that truth into being
if it doesn't yet exist.

Poetry is heightened awareness of that Fiction-Truth
heightened because we often are blind to truths we need.

Story telling is the art form which reminds us we are in fact
a small band before the fire, holding back the dark. There we invent
stories of hope to get us through the night.

The writer lives inside what-is- not- yet as a hedge against bad times
which may currently exist, and preserves for the future precious meanings murdered sometimes by the present.

Speaking is a capacity of the thorax, writing is the way the soul speaks.

When speech is silenced we only have our imaginations against bad times and this has saved the world time and time again.

People die, ideas don't; that is the purpose of fiction.

The miracle of life is that I can shake your hand while dreaming of home.

The only true gift of life is that out-pouring of love from us humans into anything. Thwart that and meet Hell.

Truth is not linear; truth now may not be truth later; truth then may not be truth now, Truth travels but it is not the world that has changed it is that the world has changed us.

Find a man obsessed with the absolute truth of anything, religious or scientific, and I will show you a fanatic.

Truth is not enough even if it is true .
 
Find a man who thinks he is right about anything totally and I will show you a man with a stick ready to use it to prove he is right.

How many times have our ideals of what ought to be allowed us to kill, hurt and harm flesh and blood.

Ideology is a serious disease resulting from a prolonged exposure to Idiots.

The purpose of truth is to make us human and life on this planet possible.

Untruth is what destroys human life and this planet.
