Ours is an era that distrusts language, that fears figures of speech, and especially what could be called figures of thinking— ideas and associations that beget ideas, that link to other links in culture rather than in hypertext,ideas that are regarded as dangerous because they are not end-stopped.

Alan Bennett
I bow to scientific fact until 5 o'clock. After that I may have other ideas.

The fact that history does not record a fact doesn't mean the fact did not exist.
José Saramago, The Double (2002)
Facts are the enemy of truth.
Don Quixote
