868.  There are truths.  And truths are often made up by facts.  And facts on the ground are terribly important ... As a reporter, if I am to draw a conclusion, as I do in my films, that conclusion must be based on evidence I’ve uncovered or I’ve seen substantiated or I’ve witnessed personally.  (Truth & Journalism & Facts & Evidence)  John Pilger, In Conversation

 

 

108,496.  Facts matter even if we don’t happen to like them.  Noam Chomsky, The War on Terror, Amnesty International lecture, Dublin 2006 

 

108,494.  In the city of Milan the name Baresi carries enormous weight: Giuseppe played almost 400 times for Inter Milan across three decades but it was his younger brother Franco who was destined for true greatness.  Football’s Greatest: Franco Baresi

 

108,495.  Baresa lifted the European Cup once again.  ibid.  

 

884.  I am a firm believer in the people.  If given the truth, they can be depended upon to meet any national crisis.  The great point is to bring them the real facts.  (Truth & People & Facts)  Abraham Lincoln

 

 

2,357.  Everything must be taken into account.  If the fact will not fit the theory - let the theory go.  (Logic & Fact & Theory)  Agatha Christie, The Mysterious Affair at Styles
 

 

72,058.  It often seems to me that's all detective work is, wiping out your false starts and beginning again.

 

Yes, it is very true, that.  And it is just what some people will not do.  They conceive a certain theory, and everything has to fit into that theory.  If one little fact will not fit it, they throw it aside.  But it is always the facts that will not fit in that are significant.  (Facts & Detective)  Agatha Christie, Death on the Nile  

 

 

2,384.  Science is built up of facts, as a house is built of stones; but an accumulation of facts is no more a science than a heap of stones is a house.  (Science & Facts)  Henri Poincare, Science and Hypothesis 1905

 

 

2,437.  The great tragedy of Science – the slaying of a beautiful hypothesis by an ugly fact.  (Science & Fact)  Thomas H Huxley, Collected Essays 1893-4

 

 

2,472.  Science is much more than a body of knowledge.  It is a way of thinking.  This is central to its success.  Science invites us to let the facts in, even when they don’t conform to our preconceptions.  It counsels us to carry alternative hypotheses in our heads and see which ones best match the facts.  It urges on us a fine balance between no-holds-barred openness to new ideas, however heretical, and the most rigorous skeptical scrutiny of everything – new ideas and established wisdom.  We need wide appreciation of this kind of thinking.  It works.  It’s an essential tool for a democracy in an age of change.  Our task is not just to train more scientists but also to deepen public understanding of science.  (Science & Knowledge & Think & Fact & Idea & Sceptics & Wisdom & Democracy & Understanding)  Carl Sagan, article Skeptical Inquirer 14:3 ‘Why We Need to Understand Science’

 

 

2,608.  If the facts don’t fit the theory, change the facts.  (Science & Facts & Theory)  Albert Einstein

 

 

71,252.  The grand aim of all science is to cover the greatest number of empirical facts by logical deduction from the smallest number of hypotheses or axioms.  (Empirical & Facts & Science)  Albert Einstein

 

 

6,736.  Knowledge is a process of piling up facts; wisdom lies in their simplification.  (Knowledge & Fact & Wisdom)  Martin Fischer

 

 

6,892.  Nothing in education is so astonishing as the amount of ignorance it accumulates in the form of inert facts.  (Education & Ignorance & Fact)  Henry Brooks Adams 1838-1918

 

 

45,339.  Practical politics consists in ignoring facts.  (Politics & Fact)  Henry Brooks Adams

 

 

7,450.  It is a capital mistake to theorize before one has data.  Insensibly one begins to twist facts to suit theories, instead of theories to suit facts.  (Information & Data & Theory & Fact & Empirical)  Arthur Conan Doyle, Sherlock Holmes

 

 

69,610.  There is nothing more deceptive than an obvious fact.  (Deceit & Fact)  Arthur Conan Doyle, The Boscombe Valley Mystery

 

 

28,533.  People make a grievous error thinking that a list of facts is the truth.  Facts are just the bare bones out of which truth is made.  (Facts & Truth & History)  Shelby Foote

 

 

56,762.  Fact is stranger than fiction.  (Proverb & Fact & Fiction)  Mid-19th century proverb

 

 

70,332.  We are all humiliated by the sudden discovery of a fact which has existed very comfortably and perhaps been staring at us in private while we have been making up our world entirely without it.  (Discovery & Fact)  George Eliot, Middlemarch

 

 

72,035.  Get your facts first, and then you can distort them as much as you please.  Mark Twain, cited Rudyard Kipling’s From the Sea 1899

 

 

72,036.  When you are studying any matter or considering any philosophy, ask yourself only, What are the facts?  And what is the truth that the facts bear out?  Never let yourself be diverted.  Bertrand Russell, interview BBC 1959

 

 

72,037.  Facts are stupid things.  Ronald Reagan

 

 

72,038.  What has religion to do with facts?  Nothing.  (Facts & Religion)  Robert Ingersoll

 

 

72,039.  Any fact that needs to be disclosed should be put out now or as quickly as possible because otherwise the bleeding will not end.  (Facts & Kissinger)  Henry Kissinger

 

 

72,040.  Don’t confuse facts with reality.  (Facts & Reality)  Robert Ballard

 

 

72,041.  Facts are many but the truth is one.  (Facts & Truth)  Rabindranath Tagore

 

 

72,042.  The truth is more important than the facts.  (Facts & Truth)  Frank Lloyd Wright

 

 

72,043.  Facts do not ‘speak for themselves’: they are read in the light of theory.  Stephen Jay Gould

 

 

72,044.  Now, what I want is, Facts ... Facts alone are wanted in life.  Charles Dickens, Hard Times, Mrs Gradgrind

 

 

72,054.  I am turned into a sort of machine for observing facts and grinding out conclusions.  (Facts & Conclusion)  Charles Darwin

 

 

95,131.  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!  Charles Dickens, Hard Times
