Anonymous Quotations

"Important truths begin as outrageous, or at least uncomfortable, attacks upon the accepted wisdom of the time."

"We owe almost all our knowledge not to people who have agreed, but to people who have disagreed."

"In any field of inquiry, the beginner is more likely than the expert to make important discoveries."

"People who pursue their own intellectual interests for purely personal reasons are more likely to benefit the rest of the world than are people who try to act for the public good."
