Painful Truth

"It is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth — and listen to the song of that siren, till she transforms us into beasts. ...

For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it might cost,
I am willing to know the whole truth;
to know the worst, and to provide for it."

Patrick Henry,
Founding Father
