There are times when we must sink to the bottom of our misery to understand truth, just as we must descend to the bottom of a well to see the stars in broad daylight.
The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.
Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth.
All truths are easy to understand once they are discovered; the point is to discover them.
