„At terrestrial temperatures matter has complex properties which are likely to prove most difficult to unravel; but it is reasonable to hope that in the not too distant future we shall be competent to understand so simple a thing as a star.“

—  Arthur Stanley Eddington British astrophysicist 1882 - 1944
The Internal Constitution of Stars, Cambridge. (1926). Paraphrased variants: It is sound judgment to hope that in the not too distant future we shall be competent to understand so simple a thing as a star. It is not too much to hope that in the not too distant future we shall be competent to understand so simple a thing as a star.

„Quick decisions won't solve this matter, we got to try and be patient“

—  Angelo Mathews Sri Lankan cricketer 1987
Context: It has been a disappointing few months for all of us. We let down the fans, we let down the whole country. All we can do is stick to one combination, not try and change the team too much. Quick decisions won't solve this matter, we got to try and be patient. Mathews on how the team isn't doing that well (kicked out of World T20), quoted on ibnlive, "Angelo Mathews exits World T20 as Sri Lanka's tragic hero" http://www.ibnlive.com/cricketnext/news/angelo-mathews-exits-world-t20-as-sri-lankas-tragic-hero-1221743.html, March 27, 2016.
