Thomas Mann Quotes

1+ Best Thomas Mann Authors Quotes

A harmful truth is better than a useful lie.
Topic : Truth, Lies

Truth keeps you linked to, and cognizant of reality. Lies, however pleasant or momentarily advantageous, disconnects you from reality, and it is in the nature of existence, that sooner or later, reality will close back on everyone like a thunderclap. The further from reality you are at any time, the more violent and destructive it is for you to be forcibly returned to it.
