At the Intersection of Genius and Humility and Caution 2

"A philosopher who has long been attached to a favorite hypothesis, and especially if he has distinguished himself by his ingenuity in discovering of pursuing it, will not sometimes be convinced of its falsity by the plainest evidence of fact." Joseph Priestly............."If we begin in certainty, we will end in doubts." Francis Bacon............."Who controls the past controls the future, who controls the present controls the past." George Orwell.
