Proof and Certainty Quotes and Quotations

Statistics are no substitute for judgement.
Get your facts first, and then you can distort 'em as much as you please.
'For example' is not proof.
A half truth, like half a brick, is always more forcible as an argument than a whole one. It carries better.
You are all you will ever have for certain,.
Doubt is not a pleasant condition, but certainty is.
To believe with certainty we must begin with doubting.
Modest doubt is call'd The beacon of the wise.
What men want is not knowledge, but certainty.
