"I would like to add something that's not essential to science, but something I kind of believe, which is that you should not fool the laymen when you're talking as a scientist.... I'm talking about a specific, extra type of integrity that is not lying, but bending over backwards to show how you're maybe wrong, [an integrity] that you ought to have when acting as a scientist. And this is our responsibility as scientists, certainly to other scientists, and I think to laymen. - Richard Feynman

" We are no longer dealing with pebbles of pretty shapes and tints,
but with objects modeled by a Divine hand; and every additional fact
becomes to the mind a new revelation of His wisdom."
- James Dwight Dana (1854) Manual of Mineralogy. Durrie & Peck, New Haven.
