Facts

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.
- Ozick, Cynthia

Best Quotes about Facts

1.
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

2.
It is not the facts which guide the conduct of men, but their opinions about facts; which may be entirely wrong. We can only make them right by discussion
Angell, Norman

3.
Men on their side must force themselves for a while to lay their notions by and begin to familiarize themselves with facts.
Bacon, Francis

4.
Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored.
Aldous Huxley

5.
The god whom science recognizes must be a God of universal laws exclusively, a God who does a wholesale, not a retail business. He cannot accommodate his processes to the convenience of individuals.
James, William

6.
If you get all the facts, your judgment can be right; if you don't get all the facts, it can't be right.
Baruch, Bernard M.

7.
Get the facts, or the facts will get you. And when you get them, get them right, or they will get you wrong.
Dr. Thomas Fuller

8.
A concept is stronger than a fact.
Gillman, Charlotte P.

9.
Facts are the most important thing in business. Study facts and do more than is expected of you.
Ecker, Frederick Hudson

10.
I have always found that if I move with seventy-five percent or more of the facts that I usually never regret it. It's the guys who wait to have everything perfect that drive you crazy.
Iacocca, Lee

11.
Our esteem for facts has not neutralized in us all religiousness. It is itself almost religious. Our scientific temper is devout.
James, William

12.
The facts are always friendly, every bit of evidence one can acquire, in any area, leads one that much closer to what is true.
Rogers, Carl

13.
Let us take things as we find them: let us not attempt to distort them into what they are not. We cannot make facts. All our wishing cannot change them. We must use them.
John Henry Cardinal Newman

14.
One precedent creates another and they soon accumulate and constitute law. What yesterday was a fact, today is doctrine.
Junius

15.
Anyone who knows a strange fact shares in its singularity.
Genet, Jean

16.
All generous minds have a horror of what are commonly called facts. They are the brute beasts of the intellectual domain. Who does not know fellows that always have an ill-conditioned fact or two that they lead after them into decent company like so many bull-dogs, ready to let them slip at every ingenious suggestion, or convenient generalization, or pleasant fancy? I allow no facts at this table.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

17.
I deal with the obvious. I present, reiterate and glorify the obvious -- because the obvious is what people need to be told.
Carnegie, Dale

18.
Get the facts, or the facts will get you. And when you get em, get em right, or they will get you wrong.
Fuller, Thomas

19.
I might show facts as plain as day: but, since your eyes are blind, you'd say,Where? What? and turn away.
Rossetti, Christina

20.
Facts can't be recounted; much less twice over, and far less still by different persons. I've already drummed that thoroughly into your head. What happens is that your wretched memory remembers the words and forgets what's behind them.
Bastos, Augusto Roa

21.
The construction of life is at present in the power of facts far more than convictions.
Benjamin, Walter

22.
A fact in itself is nothing. It is valuable only for the idea attached to it, or for the proof which it furnishes.
Bernard, Claude

23.
My facts shall be falsehoods to the common sense. I would so state facts that they shall be significant, shall be myths or mythologies. Facts which the mind perceived, thoughts which the body thought -- with these I deal.
Thoreau, Henry David

24.
Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passion, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence.
John Adams

25.
It may be said with a degree of assurance that not everything that meets the eye is as it appears.
Serling, Rod

26.
Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passions, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence.
Adams, John

27.
Get your facts first, and then you can distort them as much as you please.
Mark Twain

28.
The ultimate umpire of all things in life is -- fact.
Laut, Agnes C.

29.
Where facts are few, experts are many.
Donald R. Gannon

30.
Every fact is related on one side to sensation, and, on the other, to morals. The game of thought is, on the appearance of one of these two sides, to find the other; given the upper, to find the under side.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

31.
Oh, don't tell me of facts -- I never believe facts: you know Canning said nothing was so fallacious as facts, except figures.
Smith, Sydney

32.
To some lawyers, all facts are created equal.
Frankfurter, Felix

33.
There is nothing as deceptive as an obvious fact.
Doyle, Sir Arthur Conan

34.
He is indebted to his memory for his jests and to his imagination for his facts.
Richard Brinsley Sheridan

35.
If a man will kick a fact out of the window, when he comes back he finds it again in the chimney corner.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

36.
A fact is like a sack -- it won't stand up if it's empty. To make it stand up, first you have to put in it all the reasons and feelings that caused it in the first place.
Pirandello, Luigi

37.
There are no eternal facts, as there are no absolute truths.
Nietzsche, Friedrich

38.
General principles are not the less true or important because from their nature they elude immediate observation; they are like the air, which is not the less necessary because we neither see nor feel it.
Hazlitt, William

39.
Never forget the facts are important but it's the opinion of the facts that causes comment.

40.
Facts and truth really don't have much to do with each other.
Faulkner, William

41.
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.

Carlyle, Thomas

Facts don't cease to exist because they are ignored.
Huxley, Aldous

Ozick, Cynthia

45.
Remember son, many a good story has been ruined by over verification.
Bennett, James Gordon

46.
Comment is free but facts are sacred.
Scott, Charles Prestwich

Facts are facts and will not disappear on account of your likes.
Jawaharlal Nehru

48.
Delete the adjectives and [you'll] have the facts.
Harper Lee

49.
One of the most untruthful things possible, you know, is a collection of facts, because they can be made to appear so many different ways.
Menninger, Karl A.

The trouble with facts is that there are so many of them.
Samuel McChord Crothers
