In journalism just one fact that is false prejudices the entire work. In contrast, in fiction one single fact that is true gives legitimacy to the entire work. That’s the only difference, and it lies in the commitment of the writer. A novelist can do anything he wants so long as he makes people believe in it.
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.

The most obvious characteristic of science is its application: the fact that, as a consequence of science, one has a power to do things. And the effect this power has had need hardly be mentioned. The whole industrial revolution would almost have been impossible without the development of science.
I don’t have any authority to talk about the domestic policies of America. But as an outsider, I am mystified by the fact that you are encouraged to buy a gun, but if you use it for the purpose that it is expressly designed for, you get the death penalty. That aspect of America is kind of mystifying.
It is not the fact of liberty but the way in which liberty is exercised that ultimately determines whether liberty itself survives.

During the 60’s, I was, in fact, very concerned about the civil rights movement.
I don’t mind what people say about me as long as it’s an opinion or the truth. If someone says, ‘He’s the worst comedian in the world,’ that’s fine.

It is a strange fact that freedom and equality, the two basic ideas of democracy, are to some extent contradictory. Logically considered, freedom and equality are mutually exclusive, just as society and the individual are mutually exclusive.

We are not interested in the fact that the brain has the consistency of cold porridge.

When we were children, we were told that we have a motherland, and that motherland was Spain. However, we have discovered later, in our lives, that as a matter of fact, we have several motherlands. And one of the greatest motherlands of all is, no doubt, Africa.
My business is to teach my aspirations to confirm themselves to fact, not to try and make facts harmonize with my aspirations.

There are a lot of people who lie and get away with it, and that’s just a fact.

I’m a son of immigrants. I’m not going to reduce my commitment to immigration. But can I empathize with the fact that if your town was 95 percent all white and now it’s down to 60, that that can scare you? Can I empathize with that? Yeah.
The U.S. has some of the most significant income inequality in the developed world, yet people seem routinely to underestimate that fact.

Arrogance, ignorance, and incompetence. Not a pretty cocktail of personality traits in the best of situations. No sirree. Not a pretty cocktail in an office-mate and not a pretty cocktail in a head of state. In fact, in a leader, it’s a lethal cocktail.
For me, true beauty has nothing to do with wrinkles and everything to do with the fact that my maternal grandmother raised five children just after the war and remained a fighter throughout her life. True beauty is the slick of red lipstick my paternal grandmother would put on before going to church on Sunday.
Pleasure without God, without the sacred boundaries, will actually leave you emptier than before. And this is biblical truth, this is experiential truth. The loneliest people in the world are amongst the wealthiest and most famous who found no boundaries within which to live. That is a fact I’ve seen again and again.

I was at MSNBC; I was constantly saying to them during Bridgegate, ‘You’ve convicted Governor Christie without one iota of fact attaching him to the decision to stall the traffic on the bridge. Why don’t we wait until the federal government or the state government… completes its investigation.’

Culture is mix. Culture means a mix of things from other sources. And my town, Istanbul, was this kind of mix. Istanbul, in fact, and my work, is a testimony to the fact that East and West combine cultural gracefully, or sometimes in an anarchic way, came together, and that is what we should search for.

I’m aware that many of my friends will be saddened and shocked, or shock-saddened, over some of the chapters in ‘The Catcher in the Rye.’ Some of my best friends are children. In fact, all my best friends are children. It’s almost unbearable for me to realize that my book will be kept on a shelf, out of their reach.
I’m just kind of odd. There are dark forces in the world, and if you pay attention to what’s going on around you, you end up incorporating it into the storytelling. Maybe it’s some aspect of myself that’s coming through that people are seeing, that I am in fact a quiet psycho.
I never could get over the fact that The Pixies formed, worked and separated without America taking them to its heart or even recognizing their existence for the most part.

All the arguments to prove man’s superiority cannot shatter this hard fact: in suffering the animals are our equals.
We leap to conclusions and remember those conclusions as fact. We react on our own prejudices but don’t always recognize them as such.
The beginning of a friendship, the fact that two people out of the thousands around them can meet and connect and become friends, seems like a kind of magic to me. But maintaining a friendship requires work. I don’t mean that as a bad thing. Good art requires work as well.
I think there is a real misconception about Indian food being super spicy. And I know that’s because when you go into an Indian restaurant, it is pretty spicy. But it doesn’t have to be. In fact, my husband can’t handle a lot of heat. I’ve had to temper my cooking so that he can eat with me.
As a matter of fact, I didn’t make a political speech outside of my state for 20 years.
A child in India grows up with the idea that you have to make choices that will create a better future. In fact, your whole life is a continuum of choices, so the more conscious you are, the greater your life will be.

The most important thing I want people to know about Haiti is the fact that we have some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, and there is such an opportunity for this to be such a destination. It is not a country that is just turmoil.

I believe that every character is a setting, a world with moving parts, and on the other hand, every setting is, in fact, a character – a living breathing thing with personality and backstory.

In fact, the socialization gives us the tools to fill our evolutionary roles. They are our building blocks.

I suspect that even most conservatives would prefer to live in the kind of world conjured up in the liberals’ imagination rather than in the kind of world we are in fact stuck with.

The most fundamental fact about the ideas of the political left is that they do not work. Therefore we should not be surprised to find the left concentrated in institutions where ideas do not have to work in order to survive.

Most of what Einstein said and did has no direct impact on what anybody reads in the Bible. Special relativity, his work in quantum mechanics, nobody even knows or cares. Where Einstein really affects the Bible is the fact that general relativity is the organizing principle for the Big Bang.
To live forever should not be an obligation. In fact, eternal life should only be for those who wish for it, because if we are depressed and unhappy with our lives, just the idea of living forever is an unbearable source of suffering.

The chief value of money lies in the fact that one lives in a world in which it is overestimated.

They were unable to get access to the hospital to see their lover, unable to call their parents and say, ‘I have just lost the love of my life.’
The fact that apartheid has been tied up with white supremacy, capitalist exploitation, and deliberate oppression makes the problem much more complex. Material want is bad enough, but coupled with spiritual poverty, it kills.

I have great Indian genes! You know, I’m lazy. I want to take advantage of the fact that I have a great metabolism. When I start getting fat, I’ll work on it! I like food, and I don’t like the gym, and as long as I look like this without doing anything, why bother?
There is nothing as mysterious as a fact clearly described. I photograph to see what something will look like photographed.

The ‘private sector’ of the economy is, in fact, the voluntary sector; and the ‘public sector‘ is, in fact, the coercive sector.
It is not seen as insane when a fighter, under an attack that will inevitable lead to his death, chooses to take his own life first.

I have entered the field to die, if need be, for this government, and never expect to return to peaceful pursuits until the object of this war of preservation has become a fact established.
I think there are definitely two types of student: the academic kids and the 50% who fail. It’s very clear to see – it’s fact. We’re not doing enough for those who fail; they need a more physical, tactile approach, involving people skills, team-building, problem-solving, building things.
I’m interested in what would normally be considered the worst aspects of commercial art. I think it’s the tension between what seems to be so rigid and cliched and the fact that art really can’t be this way.
Each individual fact, taken by itself, can indeed arouse our curiosity or our astonishment, or be useful to us in its practical applications.

The ‘means of grace’ are such as Bible reading, private prayer, and regularly worshiping God in Church, wherein one hears the Word taught and participates in the Lord‘s Supper. I lay it down as a simple matter of fact that no one who is careless about such things must ever expect to make much progress in sanctification.
There might have been a thousand people who had a better athletic feat than what I did. So for me, just the fact that they gave Canadian Athlete of the Year – and also, I was voted third in the Male Athlete of the Year – the fact that some people did consider what I did an athletic feat, that really makes me feel good.
The personal contact is a personal thing. The fact that some people don’t know their neighbors, I don’t think that technology is at fault. You don’t lose anything with technology. You gain other avenues of understanding.

Superstition? Who can define the boundary line between the superstition of yesterday and the scientific fact of tomorrow?

I’m a big fan of Woody Allen. I used to love the fact that he wrote his own screenplay and acted in the movie.

With my husband, I do really appreciate the fact that we – even though we’re different kinds of Asian, there is a cultural shorthand between us, and I don’t have to explain anything.

The fact is that even art is subject to fashion.
Accept the fact that we have to treat almost anybody as a volunteer.
New York City is home to so many people from so many places and the uniqueness of it is that you never feel a foreigner. English is almost hardly ever heard in the subway. In fact, it’s weird.

The flag is a symbol of our freedom, and burning it absolutely is one of the least patriotic things that a person could possibly do.

When you’re a little kid, you don’t see color, and the fact that my friends were black never crossed my mind. It never became an issue until I was a teenager and started trying to rap.

Since it is necessary to grant six million Filipinos their rights, so that they may be in fact Spaniards, let the government grant these rights freely and spontaneously, without damaging reservations, without irritating mistrust.

Looking back, I’m really happy with the choices I’ve made in my career. I know for a fact I could be wealthier. Who knows, maybe I could be more successful, maybe not. I don’t know. But just about every single thing I’ve ever done I’ve gone into with the right intentions, and that goes a long way.

I think the fact that Brock Lesnar is not on the road 52 weeks a year, is not on ‘Monday Night Raw’ every episode, is not performing 300 matches per year… I think that dictates to the public, ‘Brock Lesnar is special.’ That an appearance by Brock Lesnar in an of itself is newsworthy. It’s not commonplace.

The fact is, Donald‘s pathologies are so complex and his behaviors so often inexplicable that coming up with an accurate and comprehensive diagnosis would require a full battery of psychological and neurophysical tests that he’ll never sit for.
Your political system is actually too democratic. The fact that Americans vote on every bill and proposition can prolong bigotry indefinitely, especially where it is aimed at minority groups.
The influence of ‘Hidden Fortress‘ comes up a lot because it was printed in a book once. The truth is, the only thing I was inspired by was the fact that it’s told from the point of view of two peasants, who get mixed up with a samurai and princess and a lot of very high-level people.
The fact is that my wife if she had common sense would have more power over me than any other whatsoever, for my heart always alights upon the nearest perch.

If we live a self-directed, self-motivated, self-centered life, always needing to get our own way, then we’re going to be miserable. In fact, many times we believe it’s our problems that are making us unhappy when, in reality, it’s because we’re focused on ourselves!
The only way to learn a language properly, in fact, is to marry a man of that nationality. You get what they call in Europe a ‘sleeping dictionary.’ Of course, I have only been married five times, and I speak seven languages. I’m still trying to remember where I picked up the other two.

As an actor, you have many tools – your body, your voice, your emotions, mentally. In film, you have your eyes because they communicate your thought process. In fact, generally in film, what you don’t say is more important than what you say. That’s not so much the case for stage.
