"Truth is truth
To the end of reckoning"
Shakespeare, Measure for Measure, Act 5, scene 1.
Truth by Jules Joseph Lefebvre (1836-1911) French painter, oil on canvas, 1870
Is there anything more hated than the truth? People work very hard to hide knowledge of all sorts of behavior, thoughts, words and deeds. If people lived and behaved with common decency, mutual respect and tolerance they probably wouldn't have so much to hide from others.
