“Above all, don't lie to yourself. The man who lies to himself and listens to his own lie comes to a point that he cannot distinguish the truth within him, or around him, and so loses all respect for himself and for others. And having no respect he ceases to love.” 

 - Fyodor Dostoevsky in The Brothers Karamazov

Living by truth

Telling the truth is a good virtue, but can be difficult. Telling the truth is essential for the good of humanity.

Living by truth has transformed the lives of Dostoevsky and Peterson. Truth is a crucial way to live one's life. Your own sense of reality is at stake.

Truth vs. lies

Choosing truth:

  • Is to uphold a genuine character. 
  • Is to realise that true being is the best possible consequence in the face of life's trials, suffering, and spitefulness. 
Choosing to lie:
  • Only leads to chaos. 
  • Often results in horrible consequences.

Jordan Peterson

"It [speaking the truth] is the proper way of wending your way through the terrible world without making it worse than it already is and with the possibility perhaps of making it better."
