Quotes on truth telling

Adrienne Rich

“When a woman tells the truth, she is creating the possibility for more truth around her. “

Adrienne Rich (1929-2012)


“All truth passes through three stages: First, it is ridiculed; second, it is violently opposed; and third, it is accepted as self-evident.”

Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860)



“All you have to do is write one true sentence. Write the truest sentence that you know.”  Ernest Hemingway (1899-1961)

The next time you write something deeply and honestly truthful, stop and notice your breath.

It is not uncommon that you might hold your breath unconsciously.  If you are ever in that spot, take a moment to inhale deeply from your belly and exhale slowly.  Do it a couple of times as a way to release and center yourself again.
