सत्यस्य वचनं श्रेयः सत्यादपि हितं वदेत् ।
यद्भूतहितमत्यन्तं एतत्सत्यं मतं मम ॥
- महाभारत, शान्ति
It is good to tell the truth. But it is better to tell what is good for others. I (Sanathkumar) believe that what is good for all people in the absolute sense has to be the truth as well.
- Mahabharata, Shanti
