More at Facebook's Contrived Platitudes Please don't republish here I already get their news.

You could have googeled to see that i got the coin, as i wrote it myself ... I did not find, or hear it any place else.  I thought it expressed perfectly the feeling i get towards true sentences ... the more i read them the truer they ring ... but i do not expect others to hear the ring ... hence metaphorically "truth rings only to those who strike its bell" ... it sets up the situation for the truth qualia

Honestly, how do your sentences above ring to you now?

I knew you would take it that way - in general publishing contrived platitudes doesn't ring any bells for me. I did a re-edit for clarity.

well so then your sentences are ringing louder only to you ... kind of proves my platitude .
As does YOUR platitude ring for you.

Yep, glad you noticed .   That is the predicament that prevails.   That is the nature of the beast.  Truth rings only to those who strike its bell, as it were.

Then too BofNK has some insights rarely considered & bookended with this PR quote:
PR: ... By all means, climb the ladder of argument for a new perspective, but where the ladder ends, you must step off.

...

BofNK 25:8 thru 25:15: ...  From the time of the ancient Greeks through the era of the Renaissance, many debates and earnest efforts were undertaken by great minds to discover—or to prove impossible to discover—a genuine direct knowledge of reality. From this struggle various philosophies emerged, as did the basic doctrine of science.
