Where facts are few, experts are many.”

Get the facts, or the facts will get you. And when you get them, get them right, or they will get you wrong.

Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored.

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

To doubt everything or to believe everything are two equally convenient solutions; both dispense with the necessity of reflection.

“Facts which at first seem improbable will, even on scant explanation, drop the cloak which has hidden them and stand forth in naked and simple beauty.”

“Facts do not 'speak for themselves', they are read in the light of theory”

Facts are to the mind what food is to the body”

Facts are ventriloquists dummies. Sitting on a wise man's knee they may be made to utter words of wisdom; elsewhere, they say nothing, or talk nonsense, or indulge in sheer diabolism

“From principles is derived probability, but truth or certainty is obtained only from facts.”

Facts sometimes have a strange and bizarre power that makes their inherent truth seem unbelievable.”

A lawyer's primer: If you don't have the law, you argue the facts; if you don't have the facts, you argue the law; if you have neither the facts nor the law, then you argue the Constitution

It is the spirit of the age to believe that any fact, no matter how suspect, is superior to any imaginative exercise, no matter how true

Facts are carpet-tacks under the pneumatic tires of theory

Scientists often have a naive faith that if only they could discover enough facts about a problem, these facts would somehow arrange themselves in a compelling and true solution”

“Facts are God's arguments; we should be careful never to misunderstand or pervert them

Facts are facts and will not disappear on account of your likes”

“Facts are the air of scientists. Without them you can never fly.”

“The facts fairly and honestly presented; truth will take care of itself.”

Theory helps us to bear our ignorance of facts”

“When you have the facts on your side, argue the facts. When you have the law on your side, argue the law. When you have neither, holler.”

“Facts are many, but the truth is one.”

We want the facts to fit the preconceptions. When they don't it is easier to ignore the facts than to change the preconceptions.”
