Showing Scientists the Virtues of Astrology
Some quotes that inform my research philosophy and practice:
- 'Tis much better to do a little with certainty, & leave the rest for others that come after you, than to explain all things by conjecture without making sure of any thing. – Isaac Newton, unpublished notes in the preface to Opticks
- People who wish to analyse nature without using mathematics must settle for a reduced understanding. - Richard Feynman, The Character of Physical Law, 1965
- From the irregular trivia of ordinary life mixed with a bit of doodling and failure, to the intense dramatic concentration as one closes in on the truth and the final elation (plus with gradually decreasing frequency, the sudden sharp pangs of doubt) – that is how science is done. – Richard P. Feynman to James D. Watson, in the book Perfectly Reasonable Deviations from the Beaten Track
- Truth is ever to be found in simplicity, and not in the multiplicity and confusion of things. – Isaac Newton again.
