"All true sentences of this theory are theorems". - Camp/Grover/Belnap/CGB: (1975, dito). E.g.: "There are true sentences that no one will ever have a reason to believe".
Truth-Predicate/Generalization/Truth/Field: E.g. the desire to express only true sentences: "I utter "p" only if p".
E.g. "Not every (of infinitely many) axioms is true". - Or, for example, they are contingent: "Not every had to be true". - N.B.: this is only possible with purely disquotational truth.
