For some the truth is an enemy - they spurn his presence - he is an unwelcome guest, an unwanted visitor - his voice is annoying - his appearnce is improper - they do not want him in their midst

For some the truth is a friend - they welcome his presence - he is a dear friend - his voice is melodious to the ear and calming to the eye - he gives them a feeling of propriety - his stay is welcome - they have missed him

For some the truth is a stranger - they feel neither joy nor irritation at his presence - they look at him with a blank face, not speaking to him, not looking at him, hearing nothing from his mouth, throwing him the smiles and frowns of a friend's guest, but ultimately asking him to leave, for he is a stranger
