Love for Truth?

"Who loves truth in this age for its own sake? How many of us are 
prepared to search for, accept and carry it out, in the midst of a 
society in which anything that would achieve success has to be built 
on appearances, not on reality, on self-assertion, not on intrinsic 
value? We are fully aware of the difficulties in the way we receive 
truth. The fair heavenly maiden descends only on...the soil of an 
impartial, unprejudiced mind, illuminated by pure Spiritual 
Consciousness. In our himself usually to be 
drifted down from cradle to grave, nailed to the Procrustean bed of 
custom and conventionality. Now conventionality—pure and simple—is a 
congenital LIE, as it is in every case a "simulation of feelings 
according to a received standard"; and where there is any simulation 
there cannot be any truth."

—H. P. Blavatsky
