Almroth Wright (1910) British bacteriologist and immunologist
'When giving evidence to a military tribunal. the President asked him if he had anything more to say. Wright replied:
'No sir, I have given you the facts. I can't give you the brains.'
From page 55 of Alexander Fleming; The Man and the Myth   . by Gwyn Macfarlane (1984) Harvard University Press.

Ouch! I must use my brain to remember to use that one. For now, I've adapted and it published on my website Patrickmatthew.com   

I give you the newly discovered and independently verifiable facts. But I cannot give you the brains to go and check their veracity and to weigh, skeptically, objectively and rationally, their significance for yourself.
