“Attitude Is Everything

We live in a culture that is blind to betrayal and intolerant of emotional pain. In New Age crowds here on the West Coast, where your attitude is considered the sole determinant of the impact an event has on you, it gets even worse.In these New Thought circles, no matter what happens to you, it is assumed that you have created your own reality. Not only have you chosen the event, no matter how horrible, for your personal growth. You also chose how you interpret what happened—as if there are no interpersonal facts, only interpretations.

The upshot of this perspective is that your suffering would vanish if only you adopted a more evolved perspective and stopped feeling aggrieved. I was often kindly reminded (and believed it myself), “there are no victims.” How can you be a victim when you are responsible for your circumstances?

When you most need validation and support to get through the worst pain of your life, to be confronted with the well-meaning, but quasi-religious fervor of these insidious half-truths can be deeply demoralizing. This kind of advice feeds guilt and shame, inhibits grieving, encourages grandiosity and can drive you to be alone to shield your vulnerability.”

“Once you take to the habit of deception, every new lie comes that much easier. Though to me it wasn't so much lies as a matter of judicious editing. We all inevitably present a version of ourselves that is a collection of half-truths and exclusions. The way I saw it, the truth was too complicated, whereas the well-chosen lie would put everyone's mind at ease.”
Caroline Kettlewell, Skin Game

Robert A. Heinlein
“It’s not enough to be able to lie with a straight face; anybody with enough gall to raise on a busted flush can do that. The first way to lie artistically is to tell the truth — but not all of it. The second way involves telling the truth, too, but is harder: Tell the exact truth and maybe all of it…but tell it so unconvincingly that your listener is sure you are lying.”
Robert A. Heinlein, Time Enough for Love

“One of the greatest challenge facing young people today, is the
large scale availability of half truth’s and manipulated facts”
Oche Otorkpa, The Unseen Terrorist

“A half-truth is even more dangerous than a lie. A lie, you can detect at some stage, but half a truth is sure to mislead you for long.”
Anurag Shourie, Half A Shadow

Ana Claudia Antunes
“Like the moon shining bright
Up high with all its grace,
I can only show you at night
And hide half of my face.”
Ana Claudia Antunes, Pierrot & Columbine

“Two half truths don't make one truth.”
Joseph Julius Bonkowski Jr., Quote Me the Book of All New Quotes

“Political truths are like colors in the rainbow, they may be true, except like the color purple which is created in the mind, however they are not THE WHOLE TRUTH, which is like LIGHT, colorless and yet all colors, seen and unseen.”
Caesar J. B. Squitti, The Jesus Christ Code: The Light: The Rainbow of Truths

“The Truth is different than human truths; they are like LIGHT.

Truths are like a color, absolute and true, while THE TRUTH is all colors and still colorless; the duality of Truth.”
Caesar J. B. Squitti, The Jesus Christ Code: The Light: The Rainbow of Truths

“The truth, 'stop violence against women' is a truth that is flawed, because it ignores the many forms of abuses of women, and then totally ignores men, children and the unborn.

Why the unborn ?

Well today, more and more unborn women of tomorrow are having their heart-beats terminated today, because they are female.”
Caesar J. B. Squitti, The Jesus Christ Code: The Light: The Rainbow of Truths

“The statement that 'abortions is a women's choice over her body' is a half-truth, because there are two heart+beats, not one.”
Teresa Squitti

“The half-truths have been in fashion again.”
sir kristian goldmund aumann

“Truth is like a double edged sword.

Truth, as in the colors of the rainbow, are truths, not to be confused with THE TRUTH, which is like LIGHT, all colors and no single color.

The Truth is like a tree, with all its fruit, while truths are like the fruit on the tree, part of the whole; parts of The Truth, half-truths.

Truth can be true, yet it can also lie.

So the question is does truth lead to THE TRUTH, or do truths lead us to a lie ? To see the difference is the key to the gates of Eden.”
Caesar J. B. Squitti, The Jesus Christ Code: The Light: The Rainbow of Truths

“Human half-truth logic, dates back to Adam and Eve, when he tried to deceive God with a truth, 'we knew we were naked so we hid', leaving God to understand that something was wrong with Adam's logic, because if Adam knew THE TRUTH, he would know that you can't hide from God.”
Caesar J. B. Squitti, The Jesus Christ Code: The Light: The Rainbow of Truths

“The problem with half-truths, I'm discovering, is that they are also half-lies.”
