There are no eternal facts, as there are likewise no absolute truths.[Es giebt keine ewigen Thatsachen: sowie es keine absoluten Wahrheiten giebt.]

You dont know very much about women, do you? Women aren’t interested in poets’ dreams. They are interested in facts. It doesn’t even matter whether the facts are true or not, as long as they match the other facts without leaving a rough seam. [Eula Varner Snopes to Gavin Stevens]
Those who forget good and evil and seek only to know the facts are more likely to achieve good than those who view the world through the distorting medium of their own desires.
