    Facts v. Truth

    From another non-gun related list.

    But it has some bearing in issues discussed here.

    “There's a world of difference between truth and facts. Facts can obscure the truth.” - Maya Angelou

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

    “Attitudes are more important than facts.” - George MacDonald

    “The truth is more important than the facts.” - Frank Lloyd Wright

    BUT...

    “Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passions, they cannot alter the state of the facts and evidence” - John Adams

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

    “Facts are to the mind what food is to the body” - Edmund Burke

    HOWEVER...

    “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.” - Aldous Huxley
    Μολὼν λαβέ

    I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.

    I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.

    Don’t ever forget the first lesson learned in journalism school – “Never let the facts get in the way of a good story”.
