" Facts are stubborn things. They cannot be altered by our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictions of our passions."

The speaker alleges that facts are stubborn things and unnecessarily extend the assertion that facs are fix things because of they cannot be altered by our subjective desires which I fundamently agree with while ignoring some possibilities that facts change with the development of society and may be distinctive from view of different people.

First of all, facts cannot be changed that have been come into being established things for us, such as history, nuatural phenomena and some physical laws which have been tested by nature. Facts are defined as things have been done by nature or human being,  which cannot be altered by human wishes or inlinations. History, accomplished by our ascendents, only leave us documents and dimensions for imagination without right and capacity to change. Natural phenomena, to a great extant, determined by nature, only leave us to accept the facts they boring to us. which cannot be happened as our expectation and dictates of our passions. As for physical laws, such as Newton Laws explaining the principle of motion and stationary which have accepted the test of nature and turned to be truth cannot be negated by change of enviroment. These stubborn facts cannot be altered on account of the inherent regularity of operation of the eatly, like time cannot reverse make stationary history and natural laws make natural phenomena happen and physical law accorded unchangeable. 

Howerver, facts view from different people who have varies of standards of jugements may be distinctive. Exactly the same things may have amounts of perspectives treated from different eyes, which can comprehend as different personalities. As we all known, personalitites developed from backgroud involving living conditions, educational background, personal experience and so forth, thus people can view a same thing with personal inclination even merged with epectation and desire. For instance, the modern transportation tools which commonly viewed as a sign of moderizaton, which is an unchangeable fact. While some people take this(these) intelligible toos as necessary part of life owing to convenience and efficiency they bring for us, others may takes these tools as decline in history of development. The former groups consider the merits tools due to their experience, such as arriving the destination more quickly and saving trime to handle some emergences. Unfortunately, some disadvatages like air catastrope and traffic accidents may happen to the latter groups which impel them to consider the negative sides of modern transportion tools.

In addition, with the rapid change of society, some fixed assertions may be changed for the development measurement and standars and new technology. Some facts reckoned as firm things may come from the traditional standards and measurements, however, which may develop with change of society. Take the judging life span for example, we once consider the life span from birth to death as a measurement, yet with the improment of medicine, traditional standard have been changed. Now we include the period of pregnacy for a baby to his/her life span. In other sense, some facts that cannot change in the past with respect to the lagging technology can now be solved thanks to the results of rapid development of socience. Malaria, one kind of dieases that deemed as incurable(in the past), can cure for the discovery ofcinchona and extraction from this(a) plant-quinine. Image that absence of quinine, people who live in poor conditions may still be infected by this horrible disease. Therefore, with the development of society, once stubborn facts may also change.

Facts, although cannot be altered in a range of inherent regularity of nature, are distinctive from different people hold with personal views and can change with the development of society and technology without violation of natural rules.
