„Maturity is simply the process of discovering that everything you believed in when you were young is false and that all the things you refused to believe in turn out to be true.“

„In cases which concern private revelations, it is better to believe than not to believe, for, if you believe, and it is proven true, you will be happy that you have believed, because our Holy Mother asked it. If you believe, and it should be proven false, you will receive all blessings as if it had been true, because you believed it to be true.“

—  Pope Urban VIII Pope 1568 - 1644
Pope Urban VIII on Private Revelation http://www.medjugorje.org/purban.htm (2001). Whether or not Urban VIII said this is debated. He did make a public statement about private revelations and their dissemination in the Catholic Church in his Constitution, Sanctissimus Dominus Noster of 1625-03-13.

„You ask me what's happened in my life, why and how I did this and that. And I think and tell, but it's never true story, because everything is so much more complicated, and also I can't even remember how things happened. Whole process is boring. Also false, but mostly boring.“

—  Mikhail Baryshnikov Soviet-American dancer, choreographer, and actor born in Letonia, Soviet Union 1948

In myriad bits; while each believes his little bit the whole to own.“

„So wanton, light and false, my love, are you,
I am most faithless when I most am true.“

—  Edna St. Vincent Millay American poet 1892 - 1950
Context: But you are mobile as the veering air, And all your charms more changeful than the tide, Wherefore to be inconstant is no care: I have but to continue at your side. So wanton, light and false, my love, are you, I am most faithless when I most am true. From Sonnet III: "Oh, Think not I am faithful to a vow!", A Few Figs from Thistles (1922) <!-- Not sure whether this appears in the 1920 edition. -->
