Thomas Edison Quote

We really haven't got any great amount of data on the subject, and without data how can we reach any definite conclusions?

As quoted in Thomas A. Edison, Benefactor of Mankind : The Romantic Life Story of the World's Greatest Inventor (1931) by Francis Trevelyan Miller, Ch. 25 : Edison's Views on Life — His Philosophy and Religion, p. 295.
