Alexander Graham Bell

I`ve lived long enough to know that any promise made beside the word "forever" is no more than a lie agreed upon. There is no forever. Everything moves towards its end. And the closer we get to ours, the louder that clock ticks, the less a sane man would let a promise deprive him of happiness.

Mahatma Gandhi

There is a conventional or popular point of view. There is a personal point of view. There is a large point of view which the majority share. There is a small point of view which just a few share.

Advances in any field are built upon people with the small or personal point of view.

Paul Arden

Arthur Conan Doyle

All progress is based upon a universal innate desire on the part of every organism to live beyond its income.

Samuel Butler

Science is best defined as a careful, disciplined, logical search for knowledge about any and all aspects of the universe, obtained by examination of the best available evidence and always subject to correction and improvement upon discovery of better evidence. What`s left is magic. And it doesn`t work.

James Randi

It is wrong always, everywhere, and for anyone, to believe anything upon insufficient evidence.
