There is the strange power we have of changing facts by the force of the imagination.

The Common Reader
If you never noticed, it never happened.

Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored
Facts are to the mind what food is to the body
My facts shall be falsehoods to the common sense. I would so state facts that they shall be significant, shall be myths or mythologic. Facts which the mind perceived, thoughts which the body thought - with these I deal
Get the facts, or the facts will get you. And when you get them, get them right, or they will get you wrong
Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please
Facts are stubborn, but statistics are more pliable
Facts are plain spoken; hopes and figures are its aversion
If the facts don't fit the theory, change the facts

Human, All Too Human
On Friendship: "A crowd is not company; and faces are but a gallery of pictures; and talk but a tinkling cymbal, where there is no love."
