Seek truth from facts.
Character is the starting point from which we go on. When I say a man has character, I mean that when you go to that man and say, ‘What are the facts in this case?’ he will tell you the truth, justly, truly, and wisely as he knows, with the minimum of exhibitionism and the maximum of devotion to the common cause.

The world is the totality of facts, not of things.
