„He who does not expect will not find out the unexpected, for it is trackless and unexplored.“

—  Heraclitus pre-Socratic Greek philosopher -535 - -475 a.C.
Fragment 18, as quoted in The Art and Thought of Heraclitus: An Edition of the Fragments (1981) edited by Charles H. Kahn, p. 105 Variants: He who does not expect the unexpected will not find it out. The Art and Thought of Heraclitus: An Edition of the Fragments (1981) edited by Charles H. Kahn, p. 129 He who does not expect the unexpected will not find it, since it is trackless and unexplored. As quoted in Helen by Euripides, edited by William Allan (2008), p. 278 Unless you expect the unexpected, you will not find it, for it is hidden and thickly tangled. Rendering ἐὰν μή "unless" is more English-friendly without being inaccurate. As for the last clause, the point is that you can neither find it nor navigate your way through it. The alpha-privatives suggest using similar metaphoric adjectives to keep the Greek 'feel.' (S. N. Jenks, 2014)

„String theory is extremely attractive because gravity is forced upon us.“

—  Edward Witten American theoretical physicist 1951
Context: String theory is extremely attractive because gravity is forced upon us. All known consistent string theories include gravity, so while gravity is impossible in quantum field theory as we have known it, it is obligatory in string theory. as quoted by Michio Kaku, Hyperspace: A Scientific Odyssey Through Parallel Universes, Time Warps, and the 10th Dimension (1995)
