"We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them."
- Albert Einstein
"A fact is a simple statement that everyone believes. It is innocent, unless found guilty. A hypothesis is a novel suggestion that no one wants to believe. It is guilty, until found effective."
- Edward Teller (1908-2003)
