"Science is built up of facts, as a house is built of stones; but an accumulation of facts is no more a science than a heap of stones is a house."
Henri Poincare
"Those who are not shocked when they first come across quantum mechanics cannot possibly have understood it."

"Everything is theoretically impossible, until it is done. One could write a history of science in reverse by assembling the solemn pronouncements of highest authority about what could not be done and could never happen."
Robert Heinlein
