Satyameva Jayate

Joseph Mallord William Turner "A sail yacht approaches the coast"
"Satyameva Jayate" - Truth Alone Triumphs.
Truth alone gives and supports our life even if we do not know or we do not trust in it.  Nothing is higher than Truth. Truth is eternal and One.  

From the Mundaka Upanishad. 3.1.6
satyameva jayate nānṛtaṁ
satyena panthā vitato devayānaḥ |
yenākramantyṛṣayo hyāptakāmā
yatra tat satyasya paramaṁ nidhānam ||
Truth alone triumphs; not falsehood.
Through truth the divine path is spread out by which
the sages whose desires have been completely fulfilled,
reach where that supreme treasure of Truth resides.

Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth.

Tao Te Ching
The truth that may be told is not the everlasting Truth.(Translated by Cheng Lin)
Tao is inexpressible, yet is ever being expressed.
Tao is the Plenum, and yet also the void.
Tao is not to be seen, yet shines through all that is.
Tao is tranquil and still, yet the source of never-ending activity.
Tao is the supreme Paradox, the Infinite Truth which never can be uttered.

Bible, John 8:32
Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.
