Facts quotes
Facts
A judge is not supposed to know anything about the facts of life until they have been presented in evidence and explained to him at least three times.

- Parker, Lord Chief Justice
In writing biography, fact and fiction shouldn't be mixed. And if they are, the fictional points should be printed in red ink, the facts printed in black ink.

- Bowen, Catherine Drinker
If you wish to be "a little child," study what a little child could understand--Nature; and do what a little child could do--love. Feed on Nature. It will digest itself. It did so when you were a little child the first time. Keep a common-place book, and put into it not only facts and thoughts, but observations on form, and colour, and nature, and little sketches, even to the form of beautiful leaves. They will all have their charm . . . all do their work in consolidating your ideas. Put everything into it. . . .

- Letters and Memories. 1842.
Through spontaneity we are re-formed into ourselves. It creates an explosion that for the moment frees us from handed-down frames of reference, memory choked with old facts and information and undigested theories and techniques of other people's findings. Spontaneity is the moment of personal freedom when we are faced with reality, and see it, explore it and act accordingly. In this reality the bits and pieces of ourselves function as an organic whole. It is the time of discovery, of experiencing, of creative expression.

- Spolin, Viola
Sit down before fact like a little child, and be prepared to give up every preconceived notion. Follow humbly wherever and to whatever abyss Nature leads, or you shall learn nothing.

- Huxley, Thomas H.
I'm not afraid of facts, I welcome facts but a congeries of facts is not equivalent to an idea. This is the essential fallacy of the so-called "scientific" mind. People who mistake facts for ideas are incomplete thinkers; they are gossips.

- Cynthia Ozick
If some books are deemed most baneful and their sale forbid, how, then, with deadlier facts, not dreams of doting men? Those whom books will hurt will not be proof against events. Events, not books, should be forbid.

- Melville, Herman
It could probably be show by facts and figures that there is no distinctively native American criminal class except Congress.

- Mark Twain
In science, all facts no matter how trivial, enjoy democratic equality.

- Mccarthy, Mary
The fewer clear facts you have in support of an opinion, the stronger your emotional attachment to that opinion.

It may be said with a degree of assurance that not everything that meets the eye is as it appears.

- Serling, Rod
Perfect as the wing of a bird may be, it will never enable the bird to fly if unsupported by the air. Facts are the air of science. Without them a man of science can never rise.

- Ivan Pavlov
FIB, n. A lie that has not cut its teeth. An habitual liar's nearest approach to truth: the perigee of his eccentric orbit. When David said: "All men are liars," Dave, Himself a liar, fibbed like any thief. Perhaps he thought to weaken disbelief By proof that even himself was not a slave To Truth; though I suspect the aged knave Had been of all her servitors the chief Had he but known a fig's reluctant leaf Is more than e'er she wore on land or wave. No, David served not Naked Truth when he Struck that sledge-hammer blow at all his race; Nor did he hit the nail upon the head: For reason shows that it could never be, And the facts contradict him to his face. Men are not liars all, for some are dead. Bartle Quinker

- Ambrose Bierce
Any clod can have the facts, but having opinions is an Art.

- Charles McCabe
If all that a man wants is "a religion," he ought to be able to make a very pretty one for himself, and a fresh one as often as he is tired of the old. But the heart and soul of man wants more than that; as it is written, "My soul is athirst for GOD, even for the living God." I want a living God, who cares for men, forgives men, saves men from their sins: and Him I have found in the Bible, and nowhere else, save in the facts of life which the Bible alone interprets.

- Sermons on the Pentateuch. 1863.
Facts and truth really don't have much to do with each other.

- Faulkner, William
There are one-story intellects, two-story intellects, and three-story intellects with skylights. All fact collectors with no aim beyond their facts are one-story men. Two-story men compare reason and generalize, using labors of the fact collectors as well as their own. Three-story men idealize, imagine, and predict. Their best illuminations come from above through the skylight.

- Oliver Wendell Holmes
I grow daily to honor facts more and more, and theory less and less. A fact, it seems to me, is a great thing -- a sentence printed, if not by God, then at least by the Devil.

- Carlyle, Thomas
The facts: nothing matters but the facts: worship of the facts leads to everything, to happiness first of all and then to wealth.

- Goncourt, Edmond and Jules De
Knowledge is a process of piling up facts; wisdom lies in their simplification.

- Fischer, Martin H.
