Truth and Falsehood

Cicero, On the Nature of the Gods 1.32.91 (tr. H. Rackham):
I only wish I could discover the truth as easily as I can expose falsehood.

utinam tam facile vera invenire possem quam falsa convincere.
Some commentators compare Athenagoras, On the Resurrection 11.5 (tr. B.P. Pratten):
The refutation of falsehood is less important than the establishment of truth.

ἔλαττον γὰρ τὸ τὸ ψεῦδος ἐλέγχειν τοῦ τὴν ἀλήθειαν κρατύνειν.
