Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth.
Believe that life is worth living and your belief will help create the fact.
Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored.
Now, what I want is Facts. Teach these boys and girls nothing but Facts. Facts alone are wanted in life. Plant nothing else, and root out everything else. You can only form the minds of reasoning animals upon Facts; nothing else will ever be of any service to them.
There's a world of difference between truth and facts. Facts can obscure the truth.
A world of facts lies outside and beyond the world of words.
Trust your hunches. They're usually based on facts filed away just below the conscious level.
Facts are many, but the truth is one.
Facts are stupid things stubborn things, I should say.
A fact is a simple statement that everyone believes. It is innocent, unless found guilty. A hypothesis is a novel suggestion that no one wants to believe. It is guilty, until found effective.
It is a capital mistake to theorize before one has data. Insensibly one begins to twist facts to suit theories, instead of theories to suit facts.
A 'fact' merely marks the point where we have agreed to let investigation cease.

Matters of fact, which as Mr Budgell somewhere observes, are very stubborn things.
A myth is, of course, not a fairy story. It is the presentation of facts belonging to one category in the idioms appropriate to another. To explode a myth is accordingly not to deny the facts but to re-allocate them.
Obviously the facts are never just coming at you but are incorporated by an imagination that is formed by your previous experience. Memories of the past are not memories of facts but memories of your imaginings of the facts.
The construction of life is at present in the power of facts far more than convictions.
I often wish... that I could rid the world of the tyranny of facts. What are facts but compromises? A fact merely marks the point where we have agreed to let investigation cease.
Beauty is an opinion not a fact
What are your historical Facts still more your biographical Wilt thou know a man by stringing-together beadrolls of what thou namest Facts
Facts quite often, I fear to confess, like lawyers, put me to sleep at noon. Not theories, however. Theories are invigorating and tonic. Give me an ounce of fact and I will produce you a ton of theory by tea this afternoon. That is, after all, my job.
Diplomats make it their business to conceal the facts, and politicians violently denounce the politicians of other countries.
I believe in general in a dualism between facts and the ideas of those facts in human heads.
I grow daily to honor facts more and more, and theory less and less.
