Just before the holidays, wildGoose2 showed me a great quote on her cell phone but I sure can't remember it now. It was a good one.

So I thought, let's have a topic here on Pinecam were we record quotes that appeal to us.

My husband recently read "Our Mathematical Universe" by Max Tegmark to me. While I found Mr. Tegmark's thoughts on parallel universes rather farfetched, I did appreciate the quotes he has scattered through the book. Here are two of them:

"Important scientific discoveries go through three phases: first they're completely ignored, then they're violently attacked, and finally they're brushed aside as well known." Konrad Lorenz

Several versions of this quote have been around for years. Here's a couple of pages that prove this quote:

6 World-Changing Ideas That Were Originally Rejected

10 Great Ideas That Were Originally Rejected

Here's another quote from the book that make me giggle:

"Cosmologists are often wrong, but never in doubt." Lev Landau

I thought of several occupations/belief systems that could easily fit into this quote.

Do you have a quote or two that tickles your fancy?

If people are good only because they fear punishment, and hope for reward, then we are a sorry lot indeed.
