November 4, 2013

Ace of Swords -- Tarot of the MastersAce of Swords:
“The wise are pleased when they discover truth, fools when they discover falsehoods.” — Unknown
For an expansion on this, see a Spiritual Tarot post from a few months ago.

Do you want to read more about what pithy Tarot meanings are?

  1. Of course, this begs questions around the nature of truth – one truth, many truths. Simple truths, complex truths…

    • Very true, there rarely is ONE truth in human affairs. However, one of the most important things I see in this quote is that some people (wise ones) look for what they can learn from something while others (fools) look for what they can criticize in order to make themselves seem wise. Its a matter of what one values: discovery or criticism. (See also the Spiritual Tarot blog post to which I have linked.)
