[4] Robert A. Heinlein: Everything is theoretically impossible, until it is done

[5] Louis Pateur: Science knows no country, because knowledge belongs to humanity, and is the torch which illuminates the world.

[15] Richard Wesley Hamming: They believe the theory enough to go ahead; they doubt it enough to notice the errors and faults so they can step forward and create the new replacement theory. If you believe too much you'll never notice the flaws; if you doubt too much you won't get started.
