„We absolutely must leave room for doubt or there is no progress and no learning. There is no learning without having to pose a question. And a question requires doubt. People search for certainty. But there is no certainty. People are terrified — how can you live and not know?“

—  Richard Feynman, livro The Pleasure of Finding Things Out
The Pleasure of Finding Things Out (1999), It is not odd at all. You only think you know, as a matter of fact. And most of your actions are based on incomplete knowledge and you really don't know what it is all about, or what the purpose of the world is, or know a great deal of other things. It is possible to live and not know. from lecture "What is and What Should be the Role of Scientific Culture in Modern Society", given at the Galileo Symposium in Italy (1964)

„An experiment is a question which science poses to Nature and a measurement is the recording of Nature's answer.“

—  Max Planck, Scientific Autobiography and Other Papers
Context: Experimenters are the schocktroops of science… An experiment is a question which science poses to Nature, and a measurement is the recording of Nature’s answer. But before an experiment can be performed, it must be planned – the question to nature must be formulated before being posed. Before the result of a measurement can be used, it must be interpreted – Nature’s answer must be understood properly. These two tasks are those of theorists, who find himself always more and more dependent on the tools of abstract mathematics. Scientific Autobiography and Other Papers (1949)

„Can he, then, be trusted with the government of others? Or have we found angels in the forms of kings to govern him? Let history answer this question.“

—  Thomas Jefferson 3rd President of the United States of America 1743 - 1826
1800s, First Inaugural Address (1801), Context: Sometimes it is said that man can not be trusted with the government of himself. Can he, then, be trusted with the government of others? Or have we found angels in the forms of kings to govern him? Let history answer this question.
