A line said by your closed one that you never forget?
“Assumption is the mother of all screw ups!.” said by one of my previous bosses whom I adore. This means sometimes we make assumptions based on incomplete or false information, and this could influence us to take wrong decisions. We should aim to take an educated decision by logic, data or opinion of others.
