This is the fifth 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 four lists is still open:
The current frontrunners from the fourth list include (with the percentage representing the percent of respondents who said move it up the list):
"The first principle is that you must not fool yourself - and you are the easiest person to fool." -- Richard Feynman (61%)
"Trust but verify." -- Ronald Reagan (57%)
"Things change. There is no 'final' version of a report. There is only the 'current' version." -- Anonymous (77%)
"You are not doing your job if your research doesn't surprise you." -- Cynthia Storer (62%)
"If you think intelligence is expensive, try ignorance." -- David Jimenez (73%)
All other entries are currently below 50%.
