Famous quotes containing the word statistics:

    July 4. Statistics show that we lose more fools on this day than in all the other days of the year put together. This proves, by the number left in stock, that one Fourth of July per year is now inadequate, the country has grown so.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)

    We ask for no statistics of the killed,
    For nothing political impinges on
    This single casualty, or all those gone,
    Missing or healing, sinking or dispersed,
    Hundreds of thousands counted, millions lost.
    Karl Shapiro (b. 1913)

    and Olaf, too

    preponderatingly because
    unless statistics lie he was
    more brave than me: more blond than you.
    —E.E. (Edward Estlin)
