Quote: Carlyle on Statistics

A judicious man uses statistics, not to get knowledge, but to save himself from having ignorance foisted upon him. A quote of Scottish satirist and historian Thomas Carlyle (1795 - 1881) from "Chartism, Chapter II" written in 1839. A fuller version of the quote appears in "Statistically Speaking: A dictionary of quotations" compiled by Carl Gaither and Alma Cavazos-Gaither.
