Quote from William James on Truth

The “absolutely” true, meaning what no further experience will ever alter, is that ideal vanishing-point towards which we imagine that all our temporary truths will someday converge. It runs on all fours with the perfectly wise man, and with absolutely complete experience; and, if these ideals are ever realized, they will all be realized together. Meanwhile we have to live today by what truth we can get today, and be ready tomorrow to call it falsehood.
