Brainstorming for GMAT essays

Issue topic: “Facts are stubborn things. They cannot be altered by our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passions.”

Preliminary notes: what is a fact? Is it truth, reality, belief? Proven? Can’t facts be changed? If facts depict reality, they can’t be changed. For instance: Who cut own the tree- we may believe the forest dept did; the reality is something else, the rosewood smugglers did it. So if fact is belief, facts are not stubborn, can change, but reality is stubborn, so if fact is reality, then it is stubborn. Another instance: the earth was believed to be flat which later proved to be wrong. If fact is belief, it is subjected to change…
thus we can debate the statement from both perspectives. The statement is agreeable or disagreeable based on the definition of ‘fact’.
