Truth

What is truth? All words hold power. Words have the power to break down and tear apart a person wither it be emotionally, physically, or spiritually and those same words have the power to build a person or foundation. But the words themselves are not what give them the power that they hold it is us the people that give them the powers and meanings that they hold. We might not be aware of it but we are the ones who determine which words have what type of power. We decide which words label you...

Absolute Truth

right and wrong has been battled for years. To many, the concept of truth is deep, confidential and indefinable. In fact, it has been said that "The discovery of truth is the sole purpose of philosophy". Clearly, we are in deep water on this topic. Some believe in absolute truth, while others believe truth is relative. I believe truth is not absolute when it comes to the names of physical things. Nevertheless, I do believe truth is absolute when it comes to moral things. Aside from those, I believe...

Reality and Truth

Reality and truth are both so hackneyed in a commonplace manner with over-lapping ideas that they each lose their own individuality. Reality is a subjective value that reflects what characterizes our world, whether it is our individual world or the world as a whole, and its conditions. Oliver Sacks' "The Mind's Eye: What the Blind See" and Tim O'Brien's "How to Tell a True War Story" bring the relationship of truth and reality into question. O'Brien openly uses the thin line between truth and reality...

Truth and Beauty

 Truth and Beauty Megan D. ENG 4U1 February 18, 2014 Ms. Reid Truth and beauty can seem to be two different things; I believe beauty is stereotypically a physical feature and truth coming from within the individual.

Confusing Truth

While paintings and books suggest the clear separation of what is truth and what is falsehood, people believe that camera is trustworthy and photos taken from it are the truth because camera is a machine with no emotions.

The Power of Truth

The Power of the Truth Novelist Tim O’Brian once said “A lie, sometimes, can be truer than the truth, which is why fiction gets written.” In his novel The Things They Carried, O’Brian argues that “story-truth is sometimes truer than happening-truth” (171). O’Brian opposes the idea of absolute truth, and believes that all truths are subject to change. He believes that a fictional story can be more true than an actual event. However, a story, no matter what story, cannot be more true than an actual...

The Reality of the Truth

What exactly is the truth? Is it reality, sincerity, integrity? Is it accuracy and honesty? How can we tell the difference between the truth and lies? Why does the media have the power to decide for us what is true? As Oscar Wilde once said 'The truth is rarely pure and never simple'. This statement sums up the difficulties of telling the truth, and this is furthermore shown in Rob Sitch et al's Frontline, Lies by Michael Leunig and the poem Nothing to Report by May Herschel Clarke. The television...
