Facts
1.

There are three principal means of acquiring knowledge. . . observation of nature, reflection, and experimentation. Observation collects facts; reflection combines them; experimentation verifies the result of that combination.

- Denis Diderot

Trust your hunches. They're usually based on facts filed away just below the conscious level.

- Brothers, Dr. Joyce
3.

People can refute your facts, but never your feelings.

- Bower, Sharon Anthony
4.

Now, what I want is, facts. Teach these boys and girls nothing but Facts. Facts alone are wanted in life. Plant nothing else, and root out everything else. You can only form the minds of reasoning animals upon Facts: nothing else will ever be of any service to them. This is the principle on which I bring up my own children, and this is the principle on which I bring up these children. Stick to Facts, sir!

- Dickens, Charles

Comment is free but facts are sacred.

- Scott, Charles Prestwich
7.

The rising power of the United States in world affairs requires, not a more compliant press, but a relentless barrage of facts and criticism. Our job in this age, as I see it, is not to serve as cheerleaders for our side in the present world struggle but to help the largest possible number of people to see the realities of the changing and convulsive world in which American policy must operate.

- Reston, James

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
11.

I have, indeed, even omitted facts, which, on account of their singularity, must in the eyes of some have appeared to border on the marvelous.

- Stedman, Captain J. G.
12.

A heap of epithets is poor praise: the praise lies in the facts, and in the way of telling them.

- Bruyere, Jean De La
13.

I often wish that I could rid the world of the tyranny of facts. What are facts but compromises? A fact merely marks the point where we have agreed to let investigation cease.

14.

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.

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
