"I tried to cheer her up, and apparently succeeded in some degree, before the walk was over; but in the very act my conscience reproved me, knowing, as I did, that, sooner or later, the tie must be broken, and this was only nourishing false hopes and putting off the evil day."anne brontë
There is ... a clever maxim which bears upon what I was saying to you some little while ago, and that is, that unless wicked ideas take root in a naturally depraved mind, human nature, in a [[right] and wholesome state, revolts at crime. Still, from an artificial civilisation have originated wants, vices, and false tastes, which occasionally become so powerful as to stifle within us all good feelings, and ultimately to lead us into guilt and wickedness...alexandre dumas

The faith that education would destroy intolerance is false. It may be partly true, but people find that intolerance is fun.richard summerbell
Humor aside, I think the reason we sometimes have the false sense that God is so far away is because that is where we have put him. We have kept him at a distance, and then when we are in need and call on him in prayer, we wonder where he is. He is exactly where we left him.ravi zacharias
The old and oft-repeated proposition "Totum est majus sua parte" [the whole is larger than the part] may be applied without proof only in the case of entities that are based upon whole and part; then and only then is it an undeniable consequence of the concepts "totum" and "pars". Unfortunately, however, this "axiom" is used innumerably often without any basis and in neglect of the necessary distinction between "reality" and "quantity", on the one hand, and "number" and "set", on the other, precisely in the sense in which it is generally false.georg cantor
Scientists have long known that Darwinism is false. They have adhered to the myth out of self-interest and a zealous desire to put down God.phillip e. johnson

If you have bought one of those T-shirts with Maxwell's equations on the front, you may have to worry about its going out of style, but not about its becoming false. We will go on teaching Maxwellian electrodynamics as long as there are scientists.steven weinberg
The confidence in the unlimited power of science is only too often based on a false belief that the scientific method consists in the application of a ready-made technique, or in imitating the form rather than the substance of scientific procedure, as if one needed only to follow some cooking recipes to solve all social problems. It sometimes almost seems as if the techniques of science were more easily learnt than the thinking that shows us what the problems are and how to approach them.friedrich hayek
[ Fuzzy logic is ] a logic whose distinguishing features are (i) fuzzy truth-values expressed in linguistic terms, e.g., true, very true, more or less true, or somewhat true, false, nor very true and not very false, etc2.; (2) imprecise truth tables; and (3) rules of inference whose validity is relative to a context rather than exact.
Too great refinement is false delicacy, and true delicacy is solid refinement.
There is a courageous wisdom; there is also a false, reptile prudence, the result not of caution but of fear.

'Tis hard if all is false that I advance, A fool must now and then be right by chance.william cowper
The origin of all science is in the desire to know causes; and the origin of all false science and imposture is in the desire to accept false causes rather than none; or, which is the same thing, in the unwillingness to acknowledge our own ignorance.
People want to believe in something-even if they know it is false.
The followers of the false prophet Mahomet make their weary pilgrimages from year to year to that impostor’s tomb. We pity their delusion, we pray for their deliverance; but we admire their devotedness.
All faith is false, all faith is true. Truth is the shattered mirror strown in myriad bits, while each believes his little bit the whole to own.
This is the very false gallop of verses.
false history gets made all day, any day,the truth of the new is never on the newsfalse history gets written every day...The lesbian archaeologist watches herselfsifting her own life out from the shards she's piecing,asking the clay all questions but her own.adrienne rich
