are acids soluble in water?

I have been told that acids are not soluble in water.  Is this true?

Some acids are not soluble in water while others are.  Generally speaking Mineral acids are soluble in whater while some organic acids are almost insoluble.  Non-Polar acids (like lauric and stearic acid) cannot combine with the polar side of water making them insoluble in water.
