Facts from paper are not the same as facts from people. The reliability of the people giving you the facts is as important as the facts themselves.
Harold S. Geneen
The Blues are the true facts of life expressed in words and song, inspiration, feeling, and understanding.
There's a world of difference between truth and facts. Facts can obscure the truth.
My eyes are constantly wide open to the extraordinary fact of existence. Not just human existence, but the existence of life and how this breathtakingly powerful process, which is natural selection, has managed to take the very simple facts of physics and chemistry and build them up to redwood trees and humans.
To be conscious that you are ignorant of the facts is a great step to knowledge.

It's about communication. It's about honesty. It's about treating people in the organization as deserving to know the facts. You don't try to give them half the story. You don't try to hide the story. You treat them as - as true equals, and you communicate and you communicate and communicate.
Louis V. Gerstner, Jr.

Daniel Patrick Moynihan

Martin Luther King, Jr.
