John Tukey
An approximate answer to the right question is worth a great deal more than a precise answer to the wrong question.
Tukey quotes
The combination of some data and an aching desire for an answer does not ensure that a reasonable answer can be extracted from a given body of data.
Far better an approximate answer to the right question, which is often vague, than an exact answer to the wrong question, which can always be made precise.
