That elections of members to serve as representatives of the people, in assembly, ought to be free; and that all men, having sufficient evidence of permanent common interest with, and attachment to, the community, have the right of suffrage, and cannot be taxed or deprived of their property for public uses, without their own consent, or that of their representives so elected, nor bound by any law to which they have not, in like manner, assembled, for the public good.
Holy practice is the most decisive evidence of the reality of our repentance. "Bring forth fruits meet for repentance."jonathan edwards
The Assembly has witnessed over the last weeks how historical truth is established; once an allegation has been repeated a few times, it is no longer an allegation, it is an established fact, even if no evidence has been brought out in order to support it.dag hammarskjöld
A certain group of adolescents evidence clear “druggie” behavior and attributes some time before they actually begin drug use.virgil miller newton
On the whole, however, the conclusions I have drawn from the proofs quoted may, I believe, safely be relied on. Assuredly they will not be disturbed either by the lays of a poet displaying the exaggeration of his craft, or by the compositions of the chroniclers that are attractive at truth's expense; the subjects they treat of being out of the reach of evidence, and time having robbed most of them of historical value by enthroning them in the region of legend.Thucydides
Do you want Australian tax exemptions to be supporting an organisation that coerces its followers into having abortions? Do you want to be supporting an organisation that defrauds, that blackmails, that falsely imprisons? Because on the balance of evidence provided by victims of Scientology you probably are.nick xenophon
If the evidence says you’re wrong, you don’t have the right theory. You change the theory, not the evidence.john brunner
The constitution of madness as a mental illness, at the end of the eighteenth century, affords the evidence of a broken dialogue, posits the separation as already effected, and thrusts into oblivion all those stammered, imperfect words without fixed syntax in which the exchange between madness and reason was made. The language of psychiatry, which is a monologue of reason about madness, has been established only on the basis of such a silence.Michel Foucault
How can one trust a person so prejudiced as to neglect overwhelming evidence?stephen jay gould
Sitting in a Court of law, I can receive no evidence but what comes under the sanction of an oath.kenyon, lloyd, 1st baron kenyon

It would appear that the Keynesian faithful have foisted on free-market capitalists an unfalsifiable theory. evidence that contradicts it, Keynesian kooks enlist as evidence for the correctness of their theory.ilana mercer
The fact that a belief has a good moral effect upon a man is no evidence whatsoever in favor of its truth.bertrand russell
The prejudice against color, of which we hear so much, is no stronger than that against sex. It is produced by the same cause, and manifested very much in the same way. The negro's skin and the woman's sex are both prima facie evidence that they were intended to be in subjection to the white Saxon man.elizabeth cady stanton
Taken as a whole, the Cross Correspondences and the Willet scripts are among the most convincing evidence that at present exists for life after death. For anyone who is prepared to devote weeks to studying them, they prove beyond all reasonable doubt that Meyers, Gurney, and Sidgwick went on communicating after death.colin wilson
Today some evidence arises that UML will more and more be used not as a specification language but as a high level programming language. This has some advantages, as if the concepts of UML are executable, they can immediately be animated and tested, or the generated code even be used as implementation. Thus UML probably will have an implementation-oriented semantics describing this animation.
There are frequently things sworn to which are so improbable that one does not believe them. It is one of the commonest things in the world in a criminal case to have the most positive oral evidence given on oath to establish a matter which neither the jury nor the Judge can believe, although it is sworn to.
Blessed is the man who having nothing to say, abstains from giving us wordy evidence of the fact.george eliot
When a man steals to satisfy hunger, we may safely conclude that there is something wrong in society. So when a woman destroys the life of her unborn child, it is an evidence that either by education or circumstances she has been greatly wronged.
The Court of Chancery never decrees that shall be evidence, which in its nature is not evidence.
Certainly, no evidence will be received but what is legal evidence at least, none but what the Judge thinks is legal; you may take that for granted.
Hearsay evidence is always to be received with caution.
Our trials by juries are of such consideration in our law that we allow their determination to be best and most advantageous to the subject; and therefore less evidence is required than by the civil law. So said Fortescue in his commendation of the laws of England.
There is no evidence that wounded troops care about the sexual orientation of the flight nurse or medical technician tending to their wounds.
Empirical evidence tends to show that trade liberalisation may entail non-trivial adjustment costs for certain groups.
Scientific beliefs are supported by evidence, and they get results. Myths and faiths are not and do not.Richard Dawkins
...it is trite that contradictions per se do not lead to the rejection of a witness ’s evidence and what the trier of fact has to take into consideration, are matters such as the nature of the contradictions; their number and importance, and their bearing on other parts of the witness’s evidence. These differences could either be immaterial to the charges the accused is facing or bona fide mistakes made by a witness.
