There is no sin in being ignorant; the sin is to remain ignorant.
Roy Curtiss III

In the fields of observation, chance favors only the prepared mind.
Louis Pasteur

I believe in evidence. I believe in observation, measurement, and reasoning, confirmed by independent observers. I'll believe anything, no matter how wild and ridiculous, if there is evidence for it. The wilder and more ridiculous something is, however, the firmer and more solid the evidence will have to be.
Isaac Asimov
