 "Truth is what most contradicts itself." 

“Truth is what most contradicts itself in time.”

Let us not forget "in time." 

What does "in time" mean?  That truth  which changes in our perception as we grow older? Remember the passage from Dover Beach: 

(a) The Sea of Faith
Was once, too, at the full, and round earth's shore
Lay like the folds of a bright girdle furled.

(b) But now I only hear
Its melancholy, long, withdrawing roar,
Retreating, to the breath
Of the night-wind, down the vast edges drear
And naked shingles of the world.
