"Get The Facts!"

“What are the facts? Again and again and again - what are the facts? Shun wishful thinking, ignore divine revelation, forget what “the stars foretell,” avoid opinion, care not what the neighbors think, never mind the un-guessable “verdict of history” - what are the facts, and to how many decimal places? You pilot always into an unknown future; facts are your single clue. Get the facts!” 
- Robert A. Heinlein

And always remember...

"When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains,
 however improbable, must be the truth."
- Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, "Sherlock Holmes"

  1. One of my new personal favorites is from Rust Cohle in True Detective, "then start asking the right fucking questions."

    People don't know critical thinking or are afraid to define/confront real problems.
