I'll wager most will come back with Mark Twain instead of Disraeli.

Some other quotes I found while musing the area that aeem applicable
to the list:

  "When a story is well told, I park my analytic faculties at the
  door." -- Harlon L. Dalton, Storytelling on Its Own Terms, in
  Law's Stories 57, 57 (Peter Brooks & Paul Gewirtz eds., 1996).

  "The plural of anecdote is not data." -- Edith Greene, A Love-Hate
  Relationship, 18 Just. Sys. J. 99, 100 (1995)

Aside: The above were taken from a commentary on narrative in law.
Its quite a good read:
