    Defend The Truth...

    Defend the truth forever in life! Even though no one appreciates it, you would get rid of giving account to your conscience.

    Could you please check the quote I translated into English?

    The ideas don't connect well to me. How about something like this:

    Always defend the truth. Even if people don't appreciate what you do, your conscience will be clear.

    No. It is unclear what "the truth in your life" means. Tdol's is better.

    Re: Defend The Truth...

    Throughout your life works better because it has a clear meaning- the course of your life. In the original, in life didn't mean much as there doesn't seem to be any alternative to it.

    Always defend the truth throughout your life. Even if people don't appreciate it, your conscience will be clear.

    Can I mention the first clause by "it" in the second one?

    Yes. Your sentences are fine.
