_ There's a world of difference between truth and facts.
Facts can obscure truth. _- Maya Angelou
Certainly, the osurce has stature. One of my favorite people. Hearing her in person is exhilarating.
But is she right?
Is fact different from truth? That is what is implied in the statement. Can fact obscure what is true?
Isn't what is true, fact?
Isn't fact what is true?
I would not be concerned if the statement were: "A statement of fact can obscure the truth." Obviously, a statement of fact can be a bald-faced lie. But that's not what she said.
So, do you call the validity of a statement by such a prestigeous person into question? Clearly, the anser is, "Yes."
If indeed there is a "world of difference between truth and facts", what is it?
You are who you say you are. Your children are who you say you are.
