This is the tenth, and last, list of "Intelligence Analyst Words To Live By."
The tenth list is below and links to the previous nine lists are below that. I am off to the Global Intelligence Forum next week and will not be back until 18 JUL so I decided to keep the voting open until then. Please pass these lists on to any analysts you know!

The current frontrunners from the ninth list include (with the percentage representing the percent of respondents who said move it up the list):
"The greatest derangement of mind is to believe in something because one wishes it to be so." -- Louis Pasteur (77%)
"I suppose that if we in intelligence were one day given three wishes, they would be to know everything, to be believed when we spoke, and in such a way to exercise an influence to the good in the matter of policy." -- Sherman Kent (53%)
"There is no limit to what a man can do or where he can go if he doesn't mind who gets the credit." -- Ronald Reagan (64%)
