The most important thing in science is not so much to obtain new facts as to discover new ways of thinking about them.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Facts as facts do not always create a spirit of reality, because reality is a spirit.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A religion, that is, a true religion, must consist of ideas and facts both; not of ideas alone without facts, for then it would be mere Philosophy; -- nor of facts alone without ideas, of which those facts are symbols, or out of which they arise, or upon which they are grounded: for then it would be mere History.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

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!More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Some facts should be suppressed, or, at least, a just sense of proportion should be observed in treating them.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge -- that myth is more potent than history. I believe that dreams are more powerful than facts -- That hope always triumphs over experience -- That laughter is the only cure for grief. And I believe that love is stronger than death.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Get the facts, or the facts will get you. And when you get em, get em right, or they will get you wrong.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

In the fevered state of our country, no good can ever result from any attempt to set one of these fiery zealots to rights, either in fact or principle.

Get by them, therefore, as you would by an angry bull; it is not for a man of sense to dispute the road with such an animal.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Great abilities are not requisite for an Historian; for in historical composition, all the greatest powers of the human mind are quiescent. He has facts ready to his hand; so there is no exercise of invention. Imagination is not required in any degree; only about as much as is used in the lowest kinds of poetry. Some penetration, accuracy, and coloring, will fit a man for the task, if he can give the application which is necessary.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Time advances: facts accumulate; doubts arise. Faint glimpses of truth begin to appear, and shine more and more unto the perfect day. The highest intellects, like the tops of mountains, are the first to catch and to reflect the dawn. They are bright, while the level below is still in darkness. But soon the light, which at first illuminated only the loftiest eminences, descends on the plain, and penetrates to the deepest valley. First come hints, then fragments of systems, then defective systems, then complete and harmonious systems. The sound opinion, held for a time by one bold speculator, becomes the opinion of a small minority, of a strong minority, of a majority of mankind. Thus, the great progress goes on.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Once a newspaper touches a story the facts are lost forever, even to the protagonists.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Every Age has its own peculiar faith. Any attempt to translate into facts the mission of one Age with the machinery of another, can only end in an indefinite series of abortive efforts.

So in your discussions of the nuclear freeze proposals, I urge you to beware the temptation of pride -- the temptation blithely to declare yourselves above it all and label both sides equally at fault, to ignore the facts of history and the aggressive impulses of an evil empire, to simply call the arms race a giant misunderstanding and thereby remove yourself from the struggle between right and wrong, good and evil.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
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.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The thought pattern characteristic of the right brain lends itself to the formation of original ideas, insights, discoveries. We might describe it as the kind of thought prevalent in early childhood, when everything is new and everything has meaning. If you have ever walked along a beach and suddenly stopped to pick up a piece of driftwood because it looked to you like a leaping impala or a troll, you know the feeling of pleasure that comes from the sudden recognition of a form. Your Design mind (right brain) has perceived connections and had made a pattern of meaning. It takes logical, rational acts and facts of the world you know, the snippets of your experience, the bits and pieces of your language capabilities, and perceives connections, patterns, and relationships in them.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Obviously the facts are never just coming at you but are incorporated by an imagination that is formed by your previous experience. Memories of the past are not memories of facts but memories of your imaginings of the facts.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The work of science is to substitute facts for appearances, and demonstrations for impressions.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
She always says, my lord, that facts are like cows. If you look them in the face hard enough they generally run away.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Comment is free but facts are sacred.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We should keep so close to facts that we never have to remember the second time what we said the first time.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We must have strong minds, ready to accept facts as they are.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Get your facts first, and then you can distort them as much as you please.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
