Latin quote

Veritas odium parit. ―Terence

One reply on “Latin quote”

The Latin phrase Obsequium amicos, veritas odium parit, translated literally means: ‘Adulation procures friends, truth gives birth to hatred’ (Terence’s Andria, verse 68).

This phrase, also quoted in the short form Veritas odium parit, expresses that truth hurts—which is why, except a single commenter, nobody else links to this site.
