Prove - Quotes


No amount of experimentation can ever prove me right; a single experiment can prove me wrong.

Albert Einstein

People usually think that technology and the human touch are incompatible. My mission is to prove them wrong.

Bertalan Mesko

The definition of faith: acceptance of that which we imagine to be true, that which we cannot prove.

Dan Brown

To understand our civilisation, one must appreciate that the extended order resulted not from human design or intention but spontaneously: it arose from unintentionally conforming to certain traditional and largely moral practices, many of which men tend to dislike, whose significance they usually fail to understand, whose validity they cannot prove, and which have nonetheless fairly rapidly spread by means of an evolutionary selection - the comparative increase of population and wealth - of those groups that happened to follow them.

Friedrich Hayek

Mathematics is not a deductive science - that`s a cliche. When you try to prove a theorem, you don`t just list the hypotheses, and then start to reason. What you do is trial and error, experimentation, guesswork.

Paul Halmos

It is not what we prove to others, that matters to the heart, but what we know within.

Richard Bach

We are trying to prove ourselves wrong as quickly as possible, because only in that way can we find progress.

Richard Feynman

If someone doesn`t value evidence, what evidence are you going to provide that proves they should value evidence? If someone doesn`t value logic, what logical argument would you invoke to prove they should value logic?

Sam Harris

I do not pretend to be able to prove that there is no God. I equally cannot prove that Satan is a fiction. The Christian god may exist; so may the gods of Olympus, or of ancient Egypt, or of Babylon. But no one of these hypotheses is more probable than any other: they lie outside the region of even probable knowledge, and therefore there is no reason to consider any of them.

Bertrand Russell

It is by logic that we prove, but by intuition that we discover. To know how to criticize is good, to know how to create is better.

Henri Poincaré

Sometimes glass glitters more than diamonds because it has more to prove.

Terry Pratchett

We have to dare to be ourselves, however frightening or strange that self may prove to be.

May Sarton

You can prove anything you want by coldly logical reason - if you pick the proper postulates.

Isaac Asimov

Believing there is no God gives me more room for belief in family, people, love, truth, beauty, sex, Jell-o, and all the other things I can prove and that make this life the best life I will ever have.

Penn Jillette

In order to have faith in his own path, he does not need to prove that someone else`s path is wrong.

Paulo Coelho
