Ignorance breeds monsters to fill up the vacancies of the soul that are unoccupied by the verities of knowledge.
— Horace Mann

One soweth and another reapeth is a verity that applies to evil as well as good.
George Eliot verity quote

It is a maudlin and indecent verity that comes out through the strength of wine.
— Joseph Conrad

Our conscience is not the vessel of eternal verities. It grows with our social life, and a new social condition means a radical change in conscience.
— Walter Lippmann

It is impossible to read the daily press without being diverted from reality. You are full of enthusiasm for the eternal verities -- life is worth living, and then out of sinful curiosity you open a newspaper. You are disillusioned and wrecked.
— verity quotation by Patrick Kavanagh
