Like dreams, statistics are a form of wish fulfillment.

But dreams lie... and so do statistics!
Have a great week!

There's a funny quote by Chuck Reid:"In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice; In practice, there is."
I guess if we keep our statistics (and our dreams) out of practice, they remain just what they are, a theory.
We must choose the dream we really wish to believe in, the right one. And it's not an easy thing - to believe in something. As Madeleine L'Engle said, believing takes practice.
Have a great week too Emily!
