Intelligence Analyst "Words To Live By" -- #2 (SurveyMonkey.com)

This is the second 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.

Create your free online surveys with SurveyMonkey, the world's leading questionnaire tool.

If you haven't had a chance to vote on the first list you can find it here (voting is still open).

The current frontrunners from the first list include (with the percentage representing the percent of respondents who said move it up the list):
"Always be aware that what you know and believe can taint your perception of what really is." -- Bill Russell (84%)
"What is your source?" -- Numerous (67%)
"Chance favors the prepared mind." -- Louis Pasteur (61%)
"Many intelligence reports in war are contradictory; even more are false, and most are uncertain." -- Carl von Clausewitz (58%)
"If you always do what you aways did, you'll always get what you always got." -- Steve Gottlieb (58%)
All other entries are currently below 50%.

I am now looking forward to the next 8 of these. Do we get to take the top % getter of each category and do a run off???
