“Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.” – Mark Twain
“Wow, did you hear that so and so said . . . . . . .”?
“Really, where did you hear that and who told you”?
“Well, who are they”?
We love this as we hear it all the time around the water cooler, in the staff room, at the grocery store and anywhere else on the planet where people meet online and offline.
There are many versions of everything on the planet and there are always at least 3 verifiable sides to any issue or topic.
The two types of dialogue are air talk and real talk.
Air talk always signifies what people want to hear.
Real talk signifies the straight goods with no hidden agendas, sidebars or any other BS, only the facts.
Mark Twain was bang on when he said, “Get your facts first”.
