Favorite Quotes

  • How could he be certain of anything, after what had happened to him? The Myth of the Totally Enlightened Guru (http://www.american-buddha.com/myth.guru.htm#THE%20MYTH%20OF%20THE%20TOTALLY%20ENLIGHTENED%20GURU) article by John Horgan (I am myself a former follower of Sathya Sai Baba)
  • There is a principle which is a bar against all information, which is proof against all arguments and which cannot fail to keep a man in everlasting ignorance - that principle is contempt prior to investigation. by Herbert Spencer Many people would agree with this quote but for psychological reasons, only pay lip service to it (including me sometimes).
  • To explain all nature is too difficult a task for any one man or even for any one age. 'Tis much better to do a little with certainty, and leave the rest for others that come after you, than to explain all things. Isaac Newton
    • Quoted in Calculus Gems (1992) G Simmons
  • One sign of dependence on ideology over data is lack of notes.
    • Paraphrased from Mary McCormick Maaga's book [2] (http://jonestown.sdsu.edu/AboutJonestown/Articles/three.htm) Hearing the Voices of Jonestown (Syracuse: Syracuse University Press, 1998)]
  • Whenever there is an absolute truth at stake, the manners become careless. This applies both to the owners as well as their opponents of that truth and to all people involved.
    • Dr. Paul Schnabel (http://www.clubofamsterdam.com/cat_content.asp?contentid=123&catid=82) in his 1982 book Between stigma and charisma: new religious movements and mental health/Tussen stigma en charisma: nieuwe religieuze bewegingen en volksgezondheid ISBN 90-6001-746-3 (Deventer, Van Loghum Slaterus), page 343.

Re-reading sources

In my experience, it takes a lot of effort to write a good article. Sometimes I think I can rely on my memory of books that I read a while ago but later I find out then some inaccuracies have slipped in. So I really have to re-study the subject to write a good article.
