This is the third of 10 surveys I intend to conduct to determine which are the "best" quotes, sayings and words of wisdom for intelligence analysts.
If you want more detail on why I am doing this, see the previous post.
Voting on the first two lists is still open:
The current frontrunners from the second list include (with the percentage representing the percent of respondents who said move it up the list):
"Describing a past event is not intelligence analysis; it is history. True intelligence analysis is always predictive." Robert Clark (68%)All other entries are currently below 50%.
"If you don't make any mistakes in life, you don't accomplish anything." -- Aikido Master Ken Ota (65%)
"Always bring something to write with and on." -- Numerous (54%)
