Defending the truth and telling the truth are not the same thing. Simply tell the truth and then let the chips lie where they fall. Then the chips will rise up, roar, and defend themselves. You can’t quench truth, you can not stomp it out, lies don’t defer it. You can alternate it. But it always comes back to it’s true self.
Truth can not be forced to fit anyone’s will. For the Will of truth is divine.
No matter how many times you attempt to kill it. Truth can be hidden but it can not be killed. ~ Eugenia Harris, in “Rhime of An Ancient Warrior“
