Sayings

By Carol Smallwood

Truth shall set you free, truth is stranger than fiction

We’ve all heard these—and it could be true

But day to day living brings whimsical constriction:

Truth shall set you free, truth is stranger than fiction.

Mark Twain wisely warned against illusions held on suspension:

“When they are gone you may still exist but you ceased to live.”

Truth shall set you free, truth is stranger than fiction

We’ve all heard these—and it could be true.
