Gandhi’s wisdom

So I was researching the other day some of Gandhi’s more formidable quotes, and I stumbled this on Wikiquotes, quote Gandhi,

“Truth alone will endure, all the rest will be swept away before the tide of time. I must continue to bear testimony to truth even if I am forsaken by all. Mine may today be a voice in the wilderness, but it will be heard when all other voices are silenced, if it is the voice of Truth.”

I think this is a testament to why “the truth will set you free.” Truth will prevail over all that is not true. It sounds good, fundamentally. I ask though, if truth is the last thing to stand the test of time, will we be alive to see it through? Can we accept the truths of all of the world, the injustices, the crimes, the sins, the mistakes and misfortunes of everyone in the world? If we all knew the truth, our fate, why we are here, who created us, and who they are? Would mankind survive?
Those are some things many have tried to answer for ages.
