But what is truth, after all? Is it the thing-in-itself, the thing-for-itself? Or the thing as it seems to us, as we imagine it? Or perhaps it's both? But then how do we choose? Which truth is the right one? The hidden? Or the apparent, however relative?

Antoni Libera

And he was pursuing truth in the manner of men of sounder morality and purer intentions than his own; that is he pursued it in the light of his own experience and prejudices. For facts, whatever their origin (and God only knows where they come from), can be only tested by our own particular suspicions.

Joseph Conrad
